Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian have revealed the fact that they are expecting a child, and as with all Kardashian-related news, it was leaked to the press ahead of time. Sadly for Blac Chyna, the leaking of the news was done against her own wishes. People reported on Friday that a representative for Blac Chyna said that she planned to release the emojis that revealed the pregnancy next week.
However, someone leaked the pregnancy news before she could, and her representative claimed that it was the Kardashian clan. Kris Jenner knew of the pregnancy already, and the comments from Blac Chyna’s reps make it sound like they are placing blame on the Kardashian matriarch.
“The only people that knew from Chyna’s side was myself and Amber [Rose]. Her mother didn’t even know. [Chyna’s] moment was taken from her, which is really sad.”
When asked why this leak might have happened, stealing a moment from Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian, the representative said that there is “a TV show to promote.” It looks to be yet another moment the Kardashians have used the press to their advantage, such as the advantageous leaking of the Kim Kardashian’s sex tape many years ago.
Blac Chyna quickly regained control of her special moment. After the news leaked, TMZ reported that she and Rob admitted it through an Instagram posting of the emoji that she planned to release next week. According to her reps, Chyna wanted to unveil the surprise news on Mother’s Day and then reveal the emoji two days later. Instead, she admitted to the good news on Friday, two days before Mother’s Day.
What is really impressive about the emoji that she revealed on Instagram is that she is also getting in on the emoji craze financially as well. TMZ reported that the emojis that were created for Blac Chyna could net her millions of dollars in profit. It also looks like the pregnancy itself will become entertainment for the masses as well, as a television show chronicling the entire pregnancy is in the works, helping the alleged leaking by the Kardashians make even more sense.
This worked well for Kim Kardashian, who saw her pregnancy as a huge ratings boom for the Kardashian television empire. Now, with Blac Chyna entering her second trimester, it looks like Rob Kardashian will be able to cash in as well. According to TMZ, it looks like E! will air the series and there will be millions in dollars paid for it.
This series could really bring a lot of famous and popular faces into the Kardashian television fold as well. E! News reported that Tyga and Blac Chyna just spent some quality time together with their son, King Cairo, possibly in anticipation for the arrival of his new sibling. With Tyga, Blac Chyna, and Rob Kardashian involved, the reality show should be very entertaining. Tyga did offer his congratulations to his ex on her new pregnancy.
Of course, in a completely awkward piece of irony, Tyga is dating Rob Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner. Rob and Blac Chyna announced their engagement weeks before the pregnancy was leaked. It is also interesting to note that Amber Rose, the best friend of Blac Chyna, is the ex-girlfriend of Kim Kardashian’s husband Kanye West. With Kris Jenner allegedly leaking the information about the pregnancy and spoiling Blac Chyna’s moment, this family business should make for very compelling television.
One bit of surprising news that is still in their control is the sex of the baby, which they know but have kept secret for now. Between that and the actual due date, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian still control some of the news from their special moments.
