Blac Chyna Talks Rob Kardashian Relationship: 'I Wanted Him to See His Worth'
By Antoinette Bueno
Blac Chyna is opening up about her whirlwind relationship with Rob Kardashian.
The 31-year-old model appeared on The Wendy Williams Show on Wednesday, and was asked about how she began dating the now extremely private 32-year-old former reality star. Chyna and Rob first started dating in January 2016 and broke up numerous times before finally calling it quits for good in July 2017, when Rob posted explicit photos of her on Instagram and they both made shocking allegations against one another on social media.
On Wednesday, Chyna said Rob definitely made the first move by continuously messaging her on Instagram. She says she at first she thought it was a set-up by the Kardashian clan, given her shaky history with the the famous family -- Chyna shares her 6-year-old son, King Cairo, with rapper Tyga and was engaged to him before he started dating Rob's younger sister, Kylie Jenner. But despite her reservations, Chyna says she ended up calling Rob when she was by herself in Arkansas to host a party, and they talked for three or four hours. When she got back to Los Angeles, she recalls that she waited a week and a half to meet up with him at his sister Khloe Kardashian's house, where he was living at the time.
"It was like a connection right then and there," she says, also denying that she dated Rob to get back at the Kardashian family over Tyga and Kylie's relationship. "I had him move out from Khloe's house, move into my house, and it was very early on. He had moved in with me, and from there, we started losing the weight, he cut his hair."
When host Wendy Williams asks when the two became sexually active, she says it was "kind of fast," and shares it was on the fifth night. She says she was indeed attracted to Rob when he was heavier, and stressed that he had a "super" personality. As for Rob's vulnerability at the time, Chyna says she wanted to give him back his confidence from the start.
"It was just different, I can't explain it," she shares of their dynamic at the time. "I wasn't feeling sorry for him. I just wanted him to see his worth."
Later, Chyna says Rob definitely wanted to have a child with her -- "we were trying all the time to get pregnant" -- and now the two share 2-year-old daughter Dream, though she says he initially wished for a boy.
"He's happy with her, though," she says with a smile.
When Williams asked who the better lover is -- Rob or Tyga -- Chyna initially replied, "neither," before finally answering that it was Rob.
During the candid interview, Chyna also talked about 29-year-old Tyga and 21-year-old Kylie's relationship, and claims she found out the two were dating when she got "thrown out" of his mansion and when he threw Kylie a birthday party when she turned 17. Kylie and Tyga eventually split in 2017.
Meanwhile, in January, a source told ET that Rob has been happily avoiding the spotlight and prefers life inside his gated community, which he "almost never leaves."
"He's in a good place right now. He’s happy, he’s getting healthier, and he’s just really settled into his role as a parent," the source said. "That's his priority and that’s what’s really giving him purpose right now."
