It’s been almost six months since Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna broke up for what seems to be the final time.
The couple has called it quits many times before, but after a pre-Christmas blowout during which Blac allegedly attacked Rob, both parties seem to have reached the decision that it’s best if they part ways for good.
So why is Rob still posting coupled-up pics with Chyna on his Instagram page?
Well, despite rumors to the contrary, it seems Rob and Blac are not back together.
But amazingly, following seriously messy split, it seems they’re actually making good on their promise to work out an amicable co-parenting relationship.
As anyone who caught Rob and Chyna’s ill-fated reality show can attest, these two were terrible as a couple.
But somehow they’re actually making it work as friends.
Yesterday was Blac’s birthday and Rob posted the above pic with a caption reading simply:
“Happy birthday @blacchyna”
He added two watermelon emojis for reasons that are probably clear only to Rob and Chyna.
Blac opened up about her high-profile relationship and breakup in a recent interview with Cosmopolitan South Africa:
“Every person who’s in a long-term relationship, or who is committed to their person, goes through ups and downs,” she told the magazine.
“Everything isn’t always going to be peaches and cream. If it is, then it’s fake. I’m in it for the long haul, so I feel like my advice [for anyone in a similar situation] is therapy, know each other’s family, calling each other’s moms.”
Rob and Blac certainly had more than their share of ups and downs, but it looks like they’ve reached a good place together.
Or maybe Rob really is trying to win Blac back and this is just his painfully awkward way of going about it.
It’s a depressing thought, not only because it means Rob doesn’t realize how dangerously dysfunctional his relationship with Blac was, but also because if he pulls it off, it would mean putting little Dream Kardashian back in a nightmare scenario.
Here’s hoping Rob realizes it’s best to let the past stay in the past.
It’s enough of a miracle that these two were able to build a friendship out of the ashes of their romance.
It really wouldn’t be wise for them to press their luck.
