Blac Chyna: ‘The baby won’t have a K name. We both agreed’


Some people – many people? – believe that Blac Chyna has ulterior motives with Rob Kardashian. Like, she’s only with him for a mixture of revenge, fame-seeking and money. For what it’s worth, I think she cares about Rob. I also think she’s interested in revenge, fame and money. Rob and Chyna cover this week’s issue of People Magazine, but the interview is pretty boring – you can read the full piece here. They’re promoting their new E! show, and it’s interesting to see this cover story, from a perspective of “will middle America buy this?”

Meanwhile, Chyna did a photoshoot and interview with Elle Mag, and the piece is pretty enlightening. Elle comes right out and says that Chyna likely has ulterior motives, but sure, let’s all pretend that this is happening for real. Elle notes that her profile has been raised so significantly at this point, she now makes more than $50K for a personal appearance. She’s branding beauty lines and more. You can read the full Elle piece here. Some highlights:

She started stripping at 18 to make money for college: “I was falling asleep all the time in class. It wasn’t working out for me.” She eventually dropped out of college, committing herself to stripping and modeling full-time. Her mother, a Dominican beauty who goes by the name Tokyo Toni, was fine with her decision. “My mom used to be a stripper,” Chyna says, “so she was like, ‘If this is what you want to do, be the best at it.'”

Her fame in the world of strippers: “The most I’ve ever made in one night is $15,000. You couldn’t miss me. You would want to come meet me.”

When Tyga cast her in a music video, she was only paid $2500: “I should’ve gotten more. He’s kinda cheap.”

When Tyga left her for Kylie: “When you don’t want to be in a relationship with somebody anymore, you don’t give a f–k what they’re doing. I was just like, ‘thank God I’m out of that situation.’ And honestly, it was the best thing that I could’ve done, because my life has changed so much for the better.”

Starting up with Rob: “When I linked up with Rob, he was at a point where nobody could really help him. But I’m the type of person that likes to motivate my friends and help them figure out how they can do better. That’s how we really started off.” She’s proceeded by giving him his space. “When I’m around Rob, I’m never all up in his business, asking questions. I let him be himself and relax. I’m not a therapist. If he opens up, and I say the wrong thing, he may shut me out. Sometimes it’s just best to let people talk about it and get it off their chest. That’s how I’ve been carrying the situation with me and Rob, and so far it’s worked out.”

The real Chyna: “I wanted to show people my personality, that I’m not just a pretty face or what some people paint me out to be: this bad person, this stripper ho. I want them to see me as a mom, a business-woman, a growing being.”

The baby: “You all will find out [the sex of the baby] during the premiere of our show on September 11,” she teases. Will their scion have a “K” moniker, like all of his (or her) famous aunties? “No,” Chyna says unequivocally. “The baby won’t have a K name. We both agreed.”

[From Elle]

There are quotes about her relationship with Rob is working out, and it just doesn’t seem like a love match, I guess? Like, Rob probably shouldn’t be in a relationship because he needs to work on himself so much. And while I don’t doubt that Chyna has helped him, she’s not his therapist (as she says) and she’s pretty much saying that she has to walk around eggshells around him because of his agoraphobia and depression. So, is she using Rob? Maybe. But I guess the better question is “who cares?”

    Urgh, why bring a baby into the world, when its not even love? Silly people

    • Pandy says:

      For the child support payments, silly!

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      People don’t need to be in love with someone to want to be a parent. I think Chyna and Rob both really want this baby. Whether they really want each other is a separate matter.

    • Snarkweek says:

      Child support? Rob doesn’t work Chyna owns several businesses.

    • Paris says:

      Her baby Nr. 2 is her cash machine.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      I wouldn’t say it isn’t love. I think she is being rightly guarded.
      I would say that she is having a baby with someone who is only just starting to overcome serious mental health and perhaps drug issues
      Additionally she has been horribly treated by her ex – cheating on her with Rob’s underage sister
      His other sisters, who were her friends, Kourtney and Kim – dropped her like a hot coal at a time when she must have been absolutely devastated

      So I would say that she might be making money off the Kardashian name but I would doubt how keen she really is on them as a family
      How he recovers and how they treat her as a family will set the tone for things to come.

  2. Josefina says:

    The first thing I noticed on that cover was the Prince headline. Only a few months have passed since his death and People wants to tarnish him already?

    This Chyna woman fits the Kardashian archetype perfectly if you ask me.

    • Luca76 says:

      The first thing I noticed was the Manson & Beach Boys header. Last year my favorite podcast You Must remember this did and whole series on the Manson family. It was done really well. Such a creepy and fascinating story.

      • QQ says:

        OMFG Luca I totally did listen to the Whole story on that , It was a crazy convoluted tale wasn’t it? I haven'[t listened again but what an interesting way to travel back down memory lane in Hollyweird that Podcast, no?

      • Luca76 says:

        Oh my god so crazy. I honestly never really got into Manson stuff before but that’s probably my favorite podcast. Such a tangled and fascinating web and so incestuously Hollywood.

      • eggy weggs says:

        Great podcast all around and that series was fantastic!

    • nikko says:

      That was the first thing I noticed to; try to bring Prince down, Leave him be. The only thing about black chyna is her hair looks better short.

  3. Donna Martin says:

    I read a blind item alleging baby is not his. But only she knows!

  4. Elle says:

    I like her. I think that Kylie person is the most ridiculous charicature on internet and what she did to Chyna’s family was horrid. Her ex was the definition of douche and her best friend (Kim) was a traitor. If my sister did something as shady I would never support her just because she is my sister. I would give her my love -because she would obviously need it- and really support my hurt friend. I am happy Chyna has moved on. Who cares with whom or why? Anything would be an upgrade. Maybe her next husband be the one or the one after him. Who cares?

    • Bluebelle says:

      Yes, Elle. I’ve fallen in love with Chyna and I agree that yes, Kylie is family but she’s wrong. Tyga is a lost cause and obviously he took advantage of both, though I won’t go into the narrative that Kylie was a child and therefore she didn’t know what she was doing because that’s just not true. Chyna has always been lovely, we’re just now seeing this side of her.

      • Elle says:

        BLUEBELLE in the particular relationship Kylie was the one with the money and power. If someone was the predator it was her! She was not innocent, she was white, single femaling Chyna and Tyga was the price.

      • Luca76 says:

        She was underage though so that trumps everything else.Tyga belongs in jail for statutory rape.

      • Zip says:

        How can an underaged teenager be a predator?! Of course, she played her part but the main focus should be on the 20-something dude who had a child a fiancé at that time.

      • Katherine says:

        Agreed. As for the other commenters, of course Tyga is in the wrong and should be in jail for statutory rape. But, the whole “she was underaged” defense only goes so far. At a certain point, whether you’re underaged or not, you’re old enough to know better and make the right decision. That doesn’t negate Tyga’s responsibility. And, where were Kylie’s parents to make sure she wasn’t being preyed upon? They had the power to keep this from happening and they didn’t. Yes, an underaged girl can be a predator. Kylie’s not your typical teen, she’s rich.

    • QQ says:

      Beep beep! I like her too!, no qualifications to it, she is a real one, her mom? Super Sassy too, I Didn’t know that Tokyo is Dominicana like me so now we Deffo go together

      in an interesting aside? : Rob the only one keeping the true family nose Hehn?

  5. Felice. says:

    As a sidebar comment about that cover, I hate that Prince’s “exes” are coming forward and talking shit now that he’s not able to defend himself.

    • Michelina says:

      This was my thought as well. Poor Prince. His death has been like a cautionary tale about how important it is to have a will. I’m sure he would be devastated to know what his family and his exes are doing now that he’s gone. Such a shame.

  6. littlemissnaughty says:

    It’s impossible to judge someone else’s relationship from the outside but whatever their situation is, it doesn’t sound like a baby is the best idea right now. I do hope it works out for them. To survive in that family … good luck to everyone involved.

  7. minx says:

    Ugh, these two.

  8. Sassenach says:

    Why do people feel like Chyna is forcing Rob to be with her or using him? He’s the one that pursued her after being in a deep depression and eating himself to death for the past few years.

    • Michelina says:

      This. I don’t think she’s using him at all, and I don’t think an article is a good way to judge whether or not she loves him. Maybe they don’t have a sappy relationship or she’s not the kind of person who is going to gush about her boyfriend in articles.

      • QQ says:

        same Michelina, if anyone follows Chyna in Snap or those fan accts in IG that shows a different goofier side, they seem… pretty relaxed/happy together

        I KNOW they must have gotten together on Petty principles but it always appears to me that HE is the one that came for her not the other way around, he is always being extravagant and such with her

  9. HappyMom says:

    Wow-People has really fallen to new lows.

  10. Nene says:

    She looks great and natural on the cover. I wish she’d never go back to blonde hair.

    • Jwoolman says:

      Yes. Her natural beauty really comes out without thick makeup and with darker hair.

      She comes across as a much kinder person that the Kardashian/Jenner Krew, and she actually has sought out extra training to help with her business ventures. She’s a saver and a planner, not a spender. That all makes her very different from the Kardashians.

  11. Nancy says:

    She got a few good hits in…..he was at the point no one could help him….as Khloe slowly burns her pictures in the bathroom with black candles burning everywhere……Tyga could squeeze a dime out of a nickel so thanks Kylie for taking this cheapo off my hands. Rob and Chyna are perfect candidates for their cringe worthy reality show, cuz let’s face it, there just aren’t enough reality shows these days. Ugh.

  12. Lynnie says:

    Whatever the motive is she has achieved the ultimate come up (in D-list celebrity world). Which only highlights the failures of Kylie’s sisters in protecting her even more. She should’ve never gotten with Tyga in the first place AND she’s too young to be a laughingstock/center of the screwiest family tree ever. It’s a wonder Kylie even has self-esteem at this point.

    Hahaha @ the shade towards Tyga 😂😂

  13. kate says:

    People has been up the Kardasses ass so much they might as well admit that “sources say” is Them. Chyna n Rob, another sad by product of Kris. And who strips for college but quits college cause it interferes with college?! Lol

  14. Erinn says:

    Meh, I like her.

    It’s also possible that she’s not really walking on eggshells all the time. She MIGHT have meant it as “I’m not a therapist so I don’t want to give him advice that turns out to be the wrong move and it set him back”. She seems like maybe she’s motivating him to get out more, and to be more active, or whatever, without trying to diagnose his problems and tell him what to do all the time. I suspect the later was more the case of what the Klan were doing. She lets him vent when he feels like it without badgering him to do so.

    It’s not the kind of lifestyle everyone would want, but maybe they’re both cool with it. Honestly, it could be a lot worse, so who am I to judge.

    • Jwoolman says:

      From what I can see, she’s been very good for Rob. I don’t think the reality show is good for them, but the money is a major attraction. I hope they just do it for now and stop rather than trying to extend it. Angela seems good with money, so hopefully she won’t let Rob spend the windfall quickly as Kardashians tend to do.

  15. HeyThere! says:

    I honestly don’t care, lol, BUT I believe rob and Chyna are using each other the same amount. Who cares?

  16. DetRiotGirl says:

    I just want to point out that Blac Chyna had a beauty line (and I think a spa?) before Rob ever entered the picture. She didn’t need Rob for that. It’s not like Blac Chyna was broke before news of this relationship got out into the world. Previous to Rob, she was doing club appearances with Amber Rose (and I’m sure making good money to do it). And previous to hanging out with Amber, she was a very famous Stripper who was featured in a few different rap songs. Yes, this whole situation is a bit of a come up. But, I’m tired of this narrative that Blac Chyna had nothing going for her before she decided to become a Kardashian. She’s actually been quite business savvy for a long time.

  17. Noor88 says:


  18. HeyThere! says:

    Nobody said she was nothing before? Not sure where you got that. But now she’s a lot more relivant I had no idea who she was minus the Kardashians association! No lies.

  19. lemonbow says:

    Whoa, in that photo Rob looks so much like Kim before all her plastic surgery. The nose especially.

  20. Snarkweek says:

    Love her lol. She’s the Kardashian slayer.

  21. Frey says:

    She’s the klassiest of the klan, and yeah, that’s sad.

  22. Shuga says:

    Where is Caitlyn just curious
