The Complete Timeline of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's Current Drama
Things kicked off when Chyna posted on Saturday afternoon that she had been hacked and the anonymous hacker began threatening to release DM and text conversations between Chyna and other men to “prove” that she was cheating on Kardashian, 29, and only using him for fame. After releasing a few conversations — which didn’t show any signs of infidelity on Chyna’s part — the hacker directed fans to Kardashian’s Snapchat where he began posting from his empty home, claiming Chyna had taken her children and left him. (Chyna and Kardashian share newborn Dream and she also has son King Cairo with former fiancé Tyga.)
Chyna then claimed in a since-deleted post that Kardashian was involved in the hack, that he was verbally abusive to her and that she was “done” with his “shenanigans.”
The back-and-forth drama that played out on social media provided plenty of gossip fodder for fans, but it may be hard to sort out exactly when everything had taken place. Keep reading for the complete timeline of the events referenced in the couple’s dramatic showdown.
Early December/late November
Kardashian and Chyna move into a new home, which he claims he bought for his family. However, in a since-deleted Instagram post, Chyna implies that the home in question is one of Kylie Jenner‘s properties. The hacker claimed the home was worth $8 million and Kardashian had said that the two had been living there for two weeks before Chyna left.
Wednesday, December 7
The Kardashians’ lawyers file documents opposing Chyna’s efforts to trademark her presumed married name, Angela Renee Kardashian, claiming it would damage the Kardashian family’s brand. Chyna’s lawyer told PEOPLE at the time that the filing was a “shock.”
That same day, Chyna allegedly texted with her lawyer, according to screengrabs posted by Chyna’s hacker. In the conversation, Chyna says she may just trademark her name when she gets married and asked if it was an easier process after the nuptials.
Thursday, December 8
In an alleged conversation with her lawyer, Chyna asks him to “change the caption until all this clears” and that she doesn’t “want people think I’m being shady.” Chyna allegedly added “until we win,” referencing the trademark case. This date and the “win” comment appear to particularly anger her hacker, who notes the date and the comment in caps in the since-deleted post.
Sunday, December 11
Amid their ongoing legal drama, the Kardashian-Jenners and Chyna celebrate Dream Kardashian’s 1-month milestone. Chyna shares a series of videos on her social media. Kylie also visited Dream on Saturday, December 10.
Monday, December 12
Chyna reveals that she has given Kardashian a brand new Range Rover. “Rob loves his new truck,” Chyna told her followers in a video shared on Instagram. Kardashian also documented the gift on his Snapchat, writing, “My girl got me a Range Rover.”
Tuesday, December 13
In a since-deleted screen grab that was posted to her Instagram when she was hacked, Chyna texts with her friend Treasure, complaining that Kardashian is “starting with” her again. She doesn’t give specifics about his behavior but claims he started treating her unfairly the day after she gifted him with his car.
However, she also shares a collage of photos of herself with Kardashian on Instagram, writing that she loves him.
Wednesday, December 14
In a series of videos posted on his Snapchat, Kardashian said “Chyna is about to be so mad at me” before going up to her and unexpectedly throwing a stack of $100 bills at her face.
At first, Chyna is visibly annoyed and confused, but she later starts taking Snapchats of her own with the wad of cash and kissing Kardashian.
E! also announced on the same day that they were picking up the couple’s reality series for a second season.
Saturday, December 17
Early Saturday morning, Chyna shared sweet videos of son King Cairo kissing and cuddling with Dream.
On Saturday afternoon, Chyna claimed that her Instagram account has been hacked and directed fans to follow an alternative account. The hacker then proceeded to claim that Chyna had taken Dream and King away from Kardashian and left him alone in his house one week ahead of Christmas. The hacker threatened to share DM and text conversations between Chyna and other men, including rapper Young Thug and Jaden Smith. However, the conversations, which Chyna verified were true, didn’t show any signs of infidelity. The hacker also posted an alleged conversation Chyna had with her lawyer where they discussed her attempt to trademark her presumed married name and conversations with her friend, Treasure.
The hacker then directed fans to go to Kardashian’s Snapchat, where a visibly distressed Kardashian began posting videos of his empty home, claiming Chyna left him unexpectedly and took their furniture and food. In a since-deleted post, Chyna accused Kardashian of being involved in her hack, claims he was verbally abusive to her and says she is “done” with him unless he can get help.
Kardashian responded to Chyna’s post by sharing a series of memes made by fans but insisting that the social media drama wasn’t “a publicity stunt.” He also said he has been “upset for days,” implying that Chyna may have left him before Saturday.
Sunday, December 18
Now regaining full control of her Instagram account, Chyna promoted her baby special, airing Sunday on E!, on social media. She deleted her alternate account, the hacked posts and Snapchats referencing her fight with Kardashian. However, Kardashian continued to post about the pair’s ongoing drama, claiming that Chyna won’t let him see their child and had blocked him.
