Controversial lovebirds Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have had much to discuss in the early stages of their blossoming romance.
They get along great, but there was, and is, one common thread that particularly bonded this unlikely couple from the start, however ...
"Both of them felt f--ked over by the family,” a source close to Rob tells Us, noting that he and Blac "bonded over their shared pain."
The enemy of my enemy is my ... revenge f--k buddy, personal trainer and partner in Internet trolling crime? Stranger things have happened.
They held grudges for different reasons, of course.
Diagnosed with diabetes in December, Rob was “seething” when he learned his family was staging a health intervention in January.
There has even been talk of Rob Kardashian SUING Kim for mocking him on Keeping Up with the Kardashians in an episode last month.
He was none too pleased when his sister quipped that his expanded girth turned a tattoo of his ex Rita Ora “into a Cabbage Patch doll.”
Whether he actually takes legal action against his own family remains to be seen, and we'd consider it extremely unlikely to be honest.
Lashing out at them more subtly - but still making his point and then some - by getting into bed with Blac Chyna is another story however.
Blac, of course, was once a close friend of Kim, and was later dumped by Tyga, who left her for another of Rob’s sisters, Kylie Jenner.
This happened in 2014, when Kylie was just 16.
Tyga and Chyna have a three-year-old son, King, which made the whole thing even harder on Blac, who was quite justifiably pissed.
Chyna, says one Rob friend, always “intended to get back at the Kardashians,” as her feud with Kylie (see gallery below) is proof of that.
It was Rob who reached out first, texting Chyna, ‘Hey, how are you?’ He was always friendly with her, so he had her number," the insider says.
"And she’s Rob’s type,” so when they began hanging out shortly thereafter, they realized they had much more in common than beef.
Hip-hop lovers, they “found out that they like the same music and doing the same things" and this “blossomed into a love thing quickly.”
Indeed, the love-struck, “obsessed” Rob drove to Texas to pick up Chyna from jail after she was arrested at the Austin airport last weekend.
Moreover, he's sent many signals to his family that Blac's not going anywhere, leaving the Kards scrambling to make sense of all this.
“They are shocked, confused and in disbelief,” explains a family source. Especially one sister. “Kylie says Rob has stabbed her in the back."
Maybe so, but there's also been some chatter about a Kylie Jenner-Blac Chyna truce, so perhaps cooler heads will finally prevail in all this?
Who are we kidding. It's a nice thought, though.
