Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have turned what could have been a private battle over their baby Dream Kardashian and their relationship issues into a public meltdown. Their Instagram and Twitter war has turned into a hot mess of media reports, and both Chyna and Rob have stayed in the celebrity feud spotlight with a combination of their own word weapons and rumors, ranging from a sex tape to a new baby on the way. The situation also raises the question of what happens to the former lovebirds’ own reality TV show, Rob & Chyna.
One recent allegation claims that Blac Chyna may be shopping around a sex tape, with the goal of embarrassing Kardashian as well as turning a profit. An insider told Hollywood Life that Chyna might have decided to take her “revenge game to the next level” with the alleged sex tape.
Although Hollywood Life could not confirm that Blac was attempting to sell a sex tape or even that the rumored video exists, the source reportedly believes that 29-year-old Chyna is shopping an alleged sex tape to “humiliate” Rob. As for whether that means that Kardashian, 30, is the alleged co-star of the rumored sex tape, the insider clarified the situation.
“Blac is shopping a sex tape that doesn’t involve Rob. She wants to use it to humiliate Rob and also make a pretty penny off of it.”
Does Chyna really need a “pretty penny” to support herself? Hollywood Life pointed out that Kardashian has claimed that he shelled out $250k on jewelry and $100k on plastic surgery on Blac before their explosive split. However, it’s not known whether that translates to trouble when it comes to Chyna’s ability to keep up her Kardashian lifestyle without Rob.
And it’s also not known whether Blac would take the messy feud that she and Kardashian have fueled to the sex tape level, particularly one that allegedly would show herself sleeping with someone other than Rob. However, according to Hollywood Life, Chyna has indicated that she has at least one bedroom video in her possession.
“[Blac Chyna] did send Rob a video making out with Mechie in their bed, so she’s had some fun with exhibitionism lately, but a sex tape is a whole other level.”
If the alleged sex tape does exist, there’s the question of whether Blac could sell it if she so desired. Vivid Entertainment founder/co-chairman Steven Hirsch told Hollywood Life that he’s up for the possibility of working with Chyna on such a tape.
“We think Blac Chyna would be great in a sex tape and many people are fascinated by her,” said the adult entertainment expert. “We would definitely like to see whatever tape is out there or work with her on something new.”
As for whether the sex tape allegations or battle involving the ex-couple’s baby Dream will play out on Kardashian’s and Blac’s reality TV show Rob & Chyna, however, don’t hunt around on your TV schedule to see when it will return.
Variety reported that the so-called “revenge porn” scandal won’t impact what to do with Rob & Chyna because the dueling duo’s show had already been removed from the schedule.
“While filming on Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been ongoing, spin-off Rob & Chyna has not been in production for several months and the series is not currently on the E! schedule,” a spokesperson for E! told Variety.
Even though Kardashian’s and Blac’s public meltdown, which included an exchange of pornographic images and X-rated allegations, might make for soaring reality TV ratings when it comes to the ex-couple’s own E! series, Rob & Chyna, the network clarified that the Kardashian clan takes the lead when it comes to decisions of whether to air their dirty laundry.
“As always, we follow the family’s lead regarding their lives and relationships, and viewers saw firsthand as the family discussed putting Rob & Chyna on hold.”
As for rumors that the family’s main TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, currently is filming all the drama between Kardashian and Blac, the network denied it.
“Keeping Up with the Kardashians is not filming right now,” said the rep.
However, those comments from the network may not signal the end of filming when it comes to Rob’s and Chyna’s ongoing battle. Variety reported that although Rob & Chyna is on hold, it hasn’t officially been canceled.
“While the show is on hold, no word from E! on an official cancellation for Rob & Chyna, given this week’s new developments for the former couple.”
Rob & Chyna first aired in September 2016, featuring the couple who was at the time engaged and looking forward to welcoming their first child together. Although the reality TV show received the green light for a second season, Blac’s and Kardashian’s split put those plans on hold.
Even if Rob & Chyna doesn’t return, the existence of other Kardashian series could give the duo the opportunity to battle on network TV. In addition to Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which wrapped up production on season 13 on June 11, Rob’s young half-sister, Kylie Jenner, has her own spinoff, Life of Kylie.
Set to debut this summer, Jenner’s new show supposedly shows her personal and professional life. However, the network did not reveal whether Kardashian or Blac filmed for the Life Of Kylie or Keeping Up With The Kardashians before the social media meltdown.
