Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian sparked a media firestorm earlier today when she posted a photo of an engagement ring on Instagram. Almost immediately after the photo surfaced on social media, news outlets began digging for information to confirm whether or not the two were engaged. Now that the engagement has been confirmed, specific details about the massive engagement ring have also been revealed.
According to E! News, Rob spent a staggering amount on the massive ring Blac Chyna shared in the Instagram post — $325,000, to be exact. It has been reported that Ben Baller, the celebrity jeweler who worked with Rob to pick out the perfect ring for Blac Chyna, shared details about the 7-carat engagement ring. He took to Instagram with a quick video that offered a close-up of the massive ring. He also admitted that he’s never seen Rob so happy before, and that he wishes him the best.
“Congrats to @RobKardashian & @BlacChyna on getting engaged,” he posted. “Rob, I have never seen you this happy before and I’ve known you since you were a teenager. I’m glad you came to your day 1 homie to get this massive [ring] for your lady. You know I don’t play when it comes to diamonds. God bless #7Carats #VVS #IFANDCO #BlacChyna #RobKardashian.”
Of course, Ben Baller’s social media posts have caught the attention of the media, but he refuses to offer any further information about Rob’s engagement to Blac Chyna. He took to Twitter with a brief message for the media.
I am not answering any questions about my boys engagement. What's on my IG page is all you get. Congrats Rob and Angela!— BEN BALLER™ (@BENBALLER) April 5, 2016
Now that Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have officially confirmed their engagement, social media users are beginning to react via Twitter. Needless to say, many people have mixed opinions about the ring and the engagement, because they still believe Blac Chyna has ulterior motives for being involved with Rob. In fact, the engagement has led to a comical social media discussion about Blac Chyna’s new name in the event she marries Rob. “Angela Kardashian” is a trending topic gradually picking up steam on Twitter. But, unfortunately many of the remarks aren’t congratulatory.
Lots of people are actually insulting Blac Chyna. Initially, most assumed Blac was dating Rob as a form of revenge against her ex-boyfriend, Tyga, and his new girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, who ironically happens to be Rob’s younger sister and one of her biggest rivals. Now, people are accusing Blac Chyna of resorting to an all-time low for taking the relationship this far.
Here are some of the tweets.
I mean, if I were to ever embrace my petty, I would only hope it is at Angela White's (soon to be Kardashian's) level.— Tisha B. (@ThePrettyGirlTB) April 5, 2016
I can only hope that one day I could be as petty, ruthless, and diabolical as Angela Kardashian— ebony porn (@hoelooks) April 5, 2016
Regardless of what people think, Blac Chyna really has a ring and it looks like they are preparing to go all the way. Since Blac Chyna and Rob have made this much progress in such a short period of time, there’s a strong possibility they won’t be having a long engagement.
However, a definite wedding date has yet to be announced. Although Rob and Blac Chyna have been congratulated by Ben Baller and others on social media, it is still unclear how his family has reacted to the engagement. By now, everyone knows the Kardashian-Jenner clan isn’t fond of Blac Chyna. So, are they as happy for him? Only time will tell how everything turns out for Rob and Blac Chyna.
