Blac Chyna Made A Rare Comment About Her Current Relationship With The Kardashian/Jenners, So Here’s A Reminder Of Their Messy History

Chyna went from being besties with Kim, to battling it out with her in court — but here’s where they stand today.

Blac Chyna is opening up about her relationship with the Kardashians and Jenners.

For a quick refresher, Chyna’s tumultuous history with the family goes back much further than their legal woes and her relationship with Rob Kardashian.

In case you didn’t know, Chyna — who is now going by her real name, Angela White — actually used to be a member of Kim’s inner circle. The two would frequently hang out, and she even made a guest appearance as “Kim’s friend” on an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in early 2014.

Around this time, Angela was engaged to rapper Tyga — with whom she shares an 11-year-old son, King Cairo — and the couple even attended Kim and Kanye’s wedding in Italy back in May 2014.

Unfortunately, however, it was soon after this that things between Chyna and the Kardashians started to get a little rocky.

In October 2014, soon after Tyga and Chyna split, Tyga was rumored to be dating Kylie Jenner, who was 17 years old at the time.

The age difference between Kylie and Tyga sparked huge backlash, and in a new episode of The Viall Files podcast, Angela looked back on the complicated time, noting that it was made all the more awkward by her friendship with Kim.

“Me and Kim, we were really good friends. I was on her show and all this stuff like that. We lived in the same community,” Chyna recalled. “And then her little sister started talking to Tyga, which was really crazy because she was underage and then everybody came at me and started attacking me.”

Of course, the situation between Kylie, Tyga, and Angela wound up getting a whole lot messier in January 2016, when Angela was linked to none other than Kylie’s older brother, Rob.

Kylie and Tyga were still together at this point — albeit, on-and-off — and within a matter of months Angela and Rob were engaged and expecting their first child.

However, two months before their daughter, Dream, was born in November 2016, Angela and Rob called off their engagement, bringing an end to their eight-month whirlwind romance — but the drama certainly didn’t end there.

The same month that Rob and Angela broke up, their reality show — aptly titled, Rob & Chyna — premiered on E!, with the series charting the chaos of their short-lived love affair.

Being that their breakup was playing out publicly as the show aired on TV, viewing figures for Rob & Chyna weren’t exactly thriving, and so it came as a surprise to no one when it was announced that the show would not be returning for a second season.

But, as we now know, it was this decision that prompted a $100 million lawsuit, with Angela suing the Kardashian family in October 2017, accusing Kris, Kim, Khloé, and Kylie of conspiring to cancel the show and leaving her in financial difficulty.

The messy legal battle didn’t play out in court until last year, and as you’ll probably remember, it was the KarJenners who came out on top when a jury ruled that they were not to blame for the cancelation of Rob & Chyna.

Since then, the Kardashians have addressed the lawsuit on their show, but have mostly refrained from explicitly bad-mouthing Anglea out of respect for Dream, who is about to turn seven.

However, Khloé did receive backlash earlier this year after describing herself as Dream's “third parent,” and emphasizing the importance of her niece having a “maternal” influence in her life.

“I feel like I’m like a third parent for Dream,” she said. “I do know how important it is for Dream to have a great maternal influence. Whether that be from me or her own mom or whoever, it’s important, and wherever she gets it from, she gets it from.”

Scott Disick agreed, telling Khloé, “You take care of so many people, I just can’t believe that you’re basically somewhat of a co-parent to Dream. You’re more than an aunt.”

“Probably more than an aunt, just a third parent, the third wheel,” Khloé responded, to which Scott said, “You’re like the wheel that makes the cart move!”

At the time, Khloé was accused of trying to erase Angela, and she eventually responded by saying the comments had been taken out of context, and that it takes a “village” to raise kids.

Angela later weighed in, saying everything was “good” between her and the family.

And now, with all this drama behind them, Angela opened up about where she stands with the family today.

“Everybody's in a great place,” she said during the same episode of The Viall Files podcast this week, confessing she’s “grateful” that the court battle is firmly in the past.

Speaking more directly on the drama surrounding Rob and Kylie, Angela suggested that time heals all.

“I never used to talk about these things, but I'm like, you know what? I think I'm kinda done with that and people need to hear my side,” she continued.

“It's been years,” she said. “I didn't come out and be a bitter baby mama, you know what I mean? I feel like time has passed.”
