It’s tough to remember a celebrity breakup as long and bitter as the split between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna.
At this point, the two have been breaking up for longer than they were together, and it seems there’s no end in sight.
The primary point of contention, of course, is custody of Dream Kardashian, Rob and Chyna’s 9-month-old daughter.
When Blac got a restraining order against Rob after he viciously bullied her and violated her privacy on social media, it was widely assumed that she would fight him for full custody of Dream.
And it looked very much as though her efforts would be successful.
After all, his behavior on Twitter and Instagram was so deplorable that there was talk of Rob facing criminal charges for posting nude photos of Chyna, along with her private contact information.
Now, however, Blac’s attorney, Lisa Bloom,
“No, we did not go to court over a custody dispute. That is false,” Bloom told Page Six.
“Chyna and Rob are peacefully co-parenting baby Dream, as they have been since her birth.”
Yes, “peaceful” is not exactly the first word that comes to mind when one thinks of Rob and Chyna’s vitriolic separation, but Bloom says the two have been in contact with one another and are hoping to work things out without a judge’s intervention.
Bloom says the couple is hard at work, hoping to “work out an amicable resolution of all issues.”
It’s been widely assumed that Kris Jenner served as peacemaker, and we can definitely imagine the momager contacting Blac and assuring her that a favorable custody arrangement in exchange for Blac agreeing to not pen a scathing, anti-Kardashian tell-all.
But it’s not all love between Rob and Blac these days.
Chyna is still moving forward with her restraining order, and a hearing is scheduled for next month.
“We intend to aggressively defend Chyna’s rights at that hearing because Rob’s vicious social media attacks on Chyna are a form of domestic abuse, as the judge has already ruled in our temporary restraining order hearing,” Bloom says.
“I believe we will have a second court victory on that day and obtain permanent restraining orders against Rob, who has yet to take responsibility for his illegal, shameful behavior toward the mother of his child.”
It’s worth noting, however, that the hearing is originally set to take place in early June, but was pushed back at the request of Blac’s legal team, which means in all likelihood, an out-of-court settlement is being arranged.
The Kardashians learned long ago that just about any PR problem can be solved with a truckload of money.
It’s a lesson that’s served them very well over the years.
