Kardashian went on one of his many social media cleanses, wiping all traces of Chyna on his Instagram – leaving a single photo of himself on his account. The action took fans by surprise, seeing as the star is very vocal about his love for the model. Despite Kardashian's decision to rid himself of PDA-packed 'grams, sources close to Chyna said "they're not broken up." "They filmed [their upcoming E! reality show] over the weekend and had an argument," a separate source shared with PEOPLE, adding, "It's hard to see Rob and Chyna actually splitting. Rob is looking forward to becoming a dad. It would take a lot for him to break up with her."

Just three days after documenting their PDA on social media, Chyna's Instagram account was hacked; the anonymous hacker claimed the new mom left Kardashian, and promised to "expose" the reality star and how she was using him while allegedly cheating on him with other men. Chyna later confirmed that the private messages and text conversations the hacker leaked were true, and even implied that Kardashian was involved in the "hack." The same weekend, Kardashian took to Snapchat to claim Chyna "took the baby, took the whole nursery we built" while sharing footage of empty rooms in the couple's home. He also said Chyna wasn't letting him see their daughter. "She blocked me or else I would ask to see her and she has the guard gate not letting me in the gate either. I just miss baby Dream." In a since-deleted post, Chyna said Kardashian could come see Dream if he wanted to because he "knows where we are."

It might just be a blue Christmas for Chyna after all. A few days before Kris Jenner's annual holiday party, a source close to the famous family told PEOPLE that the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch would not be inviting the former model. "Rob's family is trying to distance themselves from Chyna. They can't stand the toxic relationship," the insider shared. "They very much care about baby Dream though. It's just come to the point when they think Rob is better off without being in a relationship with Chyna."

'THE WEDDING PLANS ARE OFF'
In February 2017, the couple broke up yet again. “They split a while ago. The wedding plans are off,” a source close to Kardashian tells PEOPLE. “They are both trying to be mature about it. It was less dramatic this time.” A source tells PEOPLE that Chyna was "fed up" with Kardashian's behavior. "Chyna is super fed up with Rob and thinks he is way too emotional and depressed. She thinks he has terrible issues,” says the insider, who knows both Chyna and Kardashian. “He is always battling his own insecurities and is unstable. It’s a major turn-off to her, and she thinks it’s incredibly unhealthy for the baby and their family.”
