As you’ve likely heard by now, Blac Chyna left Rob Kardashian over the weekend and took the couple’s 1-month-old daughter, Dream, with her.
Obviously, Rob is upset by the development, but he’s expressing his sadness in a highly unorthodox and very 2016 fashion.
If you missed it, the 29-year-old reality star has been posting memes joking about the breakup on his Instagram page.
TBF, we’ve all taken emotional refuge in painfully close-to-home memes over the course of this god-forsaken year. So we can sort of see it.
It’s still an odd way to cope with the dissolution of one’s family, however, and doesn’t really mesh with what we know of him specifically.
After all, Rob’s inability to laugh at himself is well-documented, so it was a bit strange to see the dude re-posting memes like this …
… while joking that his ex made off with his Eggos and favorite barbecue sauce.
The whole situation is … weird, and it’s made weirder by a rant posted on what’s allegedly an unverified backup Instagram account maintained by Blac:
"This entire year I have done nothing but help Rob," Chyna (or someone pretending to be Chyna) wrote.
"It’s so SAD & PATHETIC how low he’d stoop to cover up his personal issues! Rob is mentally ill & refuses to seek help!"
Well, they say the best thing you can do for the mentally ill is to put them on blast on social media.
We’re joking, please don’t do that if you have a person who suffers from mental illness in your life.
After seeing Blac’s message, Rob dispensed with the frozen waffle gags (he’s since deleted all the breakup memes from his IG page).
Instead, he penned a painfully honest message of heartbreak:
"Sorry to be so open but I’m not feeling so good after seeing @blacchyna messages about me and what her plans were," Rob wrote.
"I have never been this heartbroken in my life."
"I don’t mind being so open or if anyone thinks I’m being weak but I don’t play when it comes to Family and Chyna was my Family and thought we were getting married."
"I treated her as a Queen.
"My baby girl is 1 month old," he continued.
"And Chyna took her and left this beautiful home that I just bought for us. Right before Christmas. Someone I have given my all too."
It’s all very dramatic and very, very public.
Perhaps it should come as no surprise, then, that many observers believe Rob and Chyna’s "breakup" is a shameless publicity stunt.
Adding to the suspicion is the fact that social media drama occurred the same day of the much-ballyhooed Rob and Chyna baby special.
What a coincidence, right?
Call us skeptical, but this no doubt boosted Google searches for the couple’s names just hours before they made their debut as a TV family.
On top of that, Blac’s mother, Tokyo Toni, has suggested that Blac and Rob are faking their entire relationship for the sake of the cameras.
Also, the mercurial tandem is currently under contract with E! to star in a wedding special … so there’s that aspect to factor in as well.
So yeah, it sounds like there’s a moderate-to-good chance that Rob and Blac might have been BS-ing us for awhile, or all along.
It’s irritating AF, but hey, we should probably thank them for inventing a new form of entertainment: the social media soap opera!
Watching TV is so early 2016.
