When the world first learned that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are dating, the predictions went something like this:

Rob and Chyna will get engaged, get knocked up, get a reality show, and break up.

So if your football picks keep losing, and it rains every time you plan an outdoor activity, you can thank ChyRo for proving there are still some things in this world you can set your watch to.

In fairness, though Rob and Blac have broken up several times at this point, they’re technically together at the moment.

That is, they’re "together" enough that they can still tell family, friends – and yes, reality TV viewers – that they’re an item.

According to the latest issue of In Touch, Rob and Blac are living in separate homes and barely speaking, but if anyone asks, they’ll only admit that they’re going through a rough patch.

The reason for all the subterfuge and secrecy?

Well, sadly, it seems Rob is the latest member of his family to prove that money makes the Kard clan go ’round.

"Rob had agreed to have a fake relationship with Chyna because his momager, Kris Jenner, got E! to pay him over $2 million to do a show," says one insider.

Unfortunately for Kris, Rob has a tougher time putting up a front for the camera than his sisters do.

He reportedly wants out of his contract.

Sources say he wants Rob and Chyna to be a one-and-done series, he wants to focus on amicably co-parenting with Blac, and – gasp! – he wants to do it without the constant presence of a camera crew.

Not surprisingly, Kris Jenner is having none of this plan.

Interestingly, however, Kris’ primary reason for objecting has nothing to do with the cash involved:

"It would be too humiliating," says the source.

"The lie has gotten so out of control, there’s no turning back."

Yes, if there’s one thing a Kardashian hates more than being broke it’s being embarrassed.

Just kidding, there’s nothing a Kardashian hates more than being broke!
