Rob Kardashian has insisted he and Blac Chyna have not broken up.
The 28-year-old reality television star and his 27-year-old model girlfriend started dating back in January (16), causing controversy due to the fact that Blac shares a young son with rapper Tyga, who is now in a relationship with Rob's half-sister Kylie Jenner.
Since they started their relationship, Rob and Blac have been flaunting their love in various posts on their social networking pages.
However, over the weekend (05-06Mar16) they sparked split allegations when Rob deleted all of the Instagram posts from his account, and Blac shared a picture of a woman with her arms outstretched alongside the caption: "When you just get out of a relationship & your h*e friend welcomes you back into the World of H*e (sic)."
On Monday morning (07Mar16), Rob took to his Instagram page to set the record straight about the reports, signing off a lengthy caption explaining his actions with a newly coined moniker for the couple - ChyRo.
Alongside a cosy picture of him and Blac, Rob wrote: “Chy and I are not broken up we just feel like it would be a lot healthier for our relationship if we kept a lot more to ourselves. It’s impossible to have a positive relationship with so much negativity from the media and outsiders and we would appreciate it if everyone respects that - ChyRo @blacchyna."
Blac didn't elaborate on Rob's post on her own page.
Rob and Blac's romance reportedly drove a wedge between the sock designer and his siblings when it began, and he subsequently moved out of sister Khloe Kardashian's home to live with Blac and her son King Cairo, three.
Khloe appears to be taking the estrangement hard, however, and posted a throwback picture of herself and Rob last month (Feb16) alongside the caption: "It's simple... I miss you." She completed her message with three emojis of crying faces.
Kourtney Kardashian also weighed in, responding to Khloe's tweet by writing: "True love".
