Did Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna stage their split for the sake of TV ratings?
According to Daily Mail, the couple is back on speaking terms and are making active plans to live under the same roof again — just days after Rob revealed that Chyna had walked out on him with their baby daughter, Dream.
Even Kardashian fans weren’t convinced that the breakup, which reportedly took place on Saturday, was a real thing, considering the fact that Rob Kardashian and Blac’s baby delivery special was set to air on Sunday evening.
It seemed too convenient for fans to think that Kardashian and Chyna just so happened to split a day before their show was set to make a one-off return to air the baby special, Radar Online reveals.
The outlet alleges that the entire breakup controversy was staged in the hopes of seeing a significant rise as far as ratings were concerned. Rob Kardashian was hoping for high numbers, and staging a split with his fiance was surely going to do that for them.
“This breakup was staged. They get amusement out of everyone believing their lies… [They] think that they are the ultimate masters of manipulating the media,” the source gushed to the outlet.
“Rob and Chyna both know that the more drama they create, the more they stand a chance of being on TV,” adding that the empty rooms Rob Kardashian filmed on his Snapchat were allegedly taken before the couple had officially moved into the home.
While Kardashian and Chyna already had their living room arrangements set up, they just had moved into Kylie Jenner’s mansion in Calabasas and a lot of furniture was still missing from their bedrooms.
The idea that Rob would make it seem as if Blac Chyna had packed up all of her belongings and left is an outrageous lie, Radar Online stresses, adding that the couple had never broken up to begin with, but in order to gain higher ratings for their TV special, this became their go-to option.
Unfortunately for Rob Kardashian and Chyna, their plan to come out on top with high ratings ended up failing, because according to Headline Planet, their TV special, which aired on Sunday evening, only managed to attract 0.92 million viewers — the lowest viewership out of any Rob & Chyna episode to date.
While the E! Network has already confirmed that they have renewed the show for a second season, fans are intrigued to know what Rob Kardashian and his fiance will do next in order to attract more people to watch their lives on TV, under the clear impression that the breakup was staged.
Something that hasn’t been staged or scripted, however, is the feud that has erupted between Rob and his Kardashian siblings, who have reportedly distanced themselves from the 29-year-old, claiming they are tired of the couple’s shenanigans.
Even if the breakup was considered to be real, the Kardashians are fully aware that Rob and Chyna would get back together, and at this given point, everybody from Khloe to Kim has stopped caring, stressing that they have their own problems to deal with.
Radar Online is sticking to their claims that Rob Kardashian and Blac fooled the world into thinking they had broken up when they are actually still an item, which explains why none of the siblings offered their support to the sock designer in the midst of his supposed feud with Chyna following their split.
Are you convinced that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna broke up? And if so, is it just a coincidence that their TV special happened to air a day after their sudden split?
