Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are either broken up or not on speaking terms, which isn't that much different, following a rough patch.
A long, ugly rough patch.
In fact, the troubled tandem may be reaching the point where you can no longer call it a patch, if they really don't speak or text for months.
The crux of their issues?
That's the long and short of it; Kardashian and Blac Chyna have been going at it for months, with Rob feeling fat and in a bad place.
His weight has long been the cause of his reclusiveness, and it appears Rob's struggle with self-esteem has reared its ugly head again.
Add in her past - which is complicated at best - and it's a recipe for disaster for a couple that was already rushing things in fans' estimation.
Which brings us to this ...
Rob is convinced, according to TMZ, that she's going to leave him for a rapper. Blac, as you know, has dated a few such music makers.
Her famous relationships with Tyga, with whom she has a three-year-old son, and Future have reportedly rankled Rob in recent months.
How bad has this gotten?
Blac has to stop listening to certain songs when Rob is around because her fiance will actually make comments to the effect of:
"You'd rather date a rapper than a fat Armenian."
Seriously, the guy has issues that haven't gone away, and his depression is said to be back with a vengeance during their recent feud.
Rob has implied that he's been cheated on by Rita Ora and/or Adrienne Bailon, and has some personal baggage of that nature.
The fact that he's so convinced Blac will leave him says that maybe he's not ready for a relationship this serious, but he's in it for life now.
They're not on speaking terms, but Chyna is still pregnant.
While they've been on the outs, he's put on more weight, and their conversations - if they even communicate at all - are intense.
Chyna's suggestions he work out and eat healthy - once credited with Rob's turnaround - are now said to be feeding into his insecurities.
Rob takes it as an insult, due to his concern about Blac leaving him, and despite the fact that she's just concerned for her man's health.
Remember, Chyna saved Rob in his own words.
All we can do is hope against hope that whatever she did to pull Rob out of the doldrums once, she can do it again, and in short order.
Unless there's something sinister at work here. Hmm.
If all of this is an elaborate art-imitating-life sham designed to make people watch Rob & Chyna online, we would honestly prefer that.
