5 Lessons Rob Kardashian Taught Us In How NOT To Handle A Break Up
Lesson 1: stay classy.
So, our boy Rob thought he had hit the jackpot with his Fine Chyna, but it turns out the socktrepreneur was sold a counterfeit. What’s a guy to do? Does he stay dignified in defiance of the betrayal or does he pawn off the misleading wares on social media? Option 1.
Let our unluckiest-in-love Kardashian to be a lesson to us all in how NOT to handle a breakup.
Lesson 1: Stay classy
Take note - just because someone can push a ‘Dream’ out of their uterus doesn’t mean the relationship can’t or won’t be a nightmare. But even if the boogie monster is in your bed rather than under it, that doesn’t give you the right to publicly shame it. There has to come a point, even for a reality star, where they stop being a story to be sold or a rumour to be spread and are just a normal person, deserving of the same right to privacy and decency as the rest of us.
Lesson 2: Stay quiet
Rob is just a man, putting on his Arthur George socks one foot at a time, but it seems in this instance they would have gone to better use shoved inside his mouth. Since joining social media again, baby bro has made a habit of using his Instagram account as a personal diary. But the time has come for him to hide his business under a heavy set mattress, because, Dear Rob, no one gives a crap.
Whatever (or whoever) happened, a relationship AND a breakup should remain between the two parties involved. #RSVP’DNO
Lesson 3: Accept it is over
I have mad love for Rob, but my man’s relationship with Chyna has yo-yoed almost as much as his weight. In fact, both of them have gone back for second and third servings of their salty drama, in spite of the fact that they clearly don’t agree with each other.
When you love someone, it can be tempting to piece back together what is broken, but there will always be cracks. And if Chyna can allegedly squeeze other guys into theirs, imagine what someone even more resourceful can do.
Lesson 4: Stay on the right side of the law
It’s a good thing Rob is antisocial and rich because he supposedly may be facing jail time and a fine after posting explicit pictures of Chyna on social media. Under California’s Revenge Porn law, it is a illegal to distribute non-consensual pornographic images of someone. Put simply, don’t put the family jewels on the market if they’re not for sale.
(However, it now looks as if there may be more to the story, with Kim hinting at some kind of 'broken confidentiality agreement' on Chyna's front. Stay tuned.)
Either way, this isn’t the first time that Rob has gotten in trouble with the law. Aside from his tantrums, which are an affront to public order, he basically committed treason when he began seeing Chyna, a known enemy of his family. A Kardenemy, if you will.
As much as you may want to punish the person who hurt you, resist the temptation. If you fight fire with fire, you will destroy more than just your ex. You will destroy the very thing that makes you better than them - your humanity.
Lesson 5: Don’t involve other people
Usually, keeping up with the Kardashians ain’t no thang, but Robert seems intent on putting us through our paces. We literally just got him out of his house and now he is the father of a supposed revenge baby, conceived to spite his sister and her ex-boyfriend, who also happens to be his baby momma’s first baby daddy.
Seriously, you give a guy some fresh air and what’s the first thing he does? Form the most dysfunctional love square to date. Luckily for the rest of us, relationships tend to be more linear - and a break up should be too. Even if other people were involved, keep them out of it. No good can come from doing otherwise.
