Rob & Chyna Epic Fallout Fight
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's fights have been well documented on their E! reality series. However, the lovebirds had a blowout fight of epic proportions earlier this year after Chyna's Instagram account was allegedly hacked.
In the hacked text messages, the 28-year-old former stripper called Rob "lazy," "fat," and "insecure." There were also social media interactions that suggested Chyna might be cheating on her future hubby.
In an emotional outburst, Blac Chyna took her and Rob's newborn baby, Dream Kardashian, and left their house.
Rob took to Snapchat to send this message: "Chyna knew exactly what she was doing to get me. I can't believe she did this to me. And this isn't for some ratings this is my real life so please understand I'm just being open right now. Cuz if it was for ratings I wouldn't explain all this here. And with Chyna's messages and her leaving with everything and the baby I am broken."
The fight led to reports suggesting that Rob and Chyna's engagement had been called off. Sources close to the family also said that Rob's famous sisters wanted him to break up with Chyna.
"The sisters don't want anything to do with this relationship," an insider said while talking to E! News. "They see how fake it is. It's so unhealthy for their brother. They see how Chyna is using their family for fame and money and they aren't going to let it happen anymore. The family accepted her but since Chyna is now showing who she really is, they don't want anything to do with her. They have real-life problems going on and are trying to have a positive New Year and not this drama."
Despite the fight, it seems that the lovebirds and back together again.prevnext

Survivor Star Goes To Jail On Horrific Charges
Just this week, former Survivor star Michael Skupin was sentenced to one to four years in prison after being found guilty on child pornography and larceny charges.
The entire scandal was utterly shocking. Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette explained that the content found on the 54-year-old's computer was seriously disturbing.
“The children in these videos and images were exploited, and each time the images were shared and viewed continued their suffering,” Schuette said. “My hope is that today’s conviction will bring some closure to the families and the children that are victims in this case.”
Despite being found guilty, Skupin told the court on Tuesday that he was innocent.
“I maintain that I didn’t do it,” Skupin said. “That’s all I maintain. There were hundreds of people who had access to my computer. I have 11 children who I’m raising, and I have about $1000 a month in child support. There’s so much fallout that would result in me going away.”prevnext
