Model Blac Chyna covers the April issue of Cosmopolitan South Africa and opens up about life with ex-fiancé, reality star Rob Kardashian, and raising her two kids: son King Cairo, 4, and 4-month-old daughter Dream.
On her haters: “I don’t give a toss. When I wake up, I don’t think about people’s opinions of my life. I don’t react to negative words. Not everyone is going to like you, so I try not to pay attention to the negativity and just focus on the positive, because there are more people who are rooting for me than people who are not.”
On her relationship with Rob: “I feel like every person who’s in a long-term relationship, or who is committed to their person, goes through ups and downs. Everything isn’t always going to be peaches and cream. If it is, then it’s fake. I’m in it for the long haul, so I feel like my advice [for anyone in a similar situation] is therapy, know each other’s family, calling each other’s moms….I feel like everything isn’t going to be perfect, but I know we love each other and we’re fighting for each other, and the people we surround ourselves with are rooting for us. It makes everything much easier. And we also have Dream. So we’re looking at the bigger picture. We have a whole other human being that looks up to us, so we have to makes sure she’s taken care of.”
On having Rob’s mom Kris Jenner in the delivery room: “Once we made the decision to get engaged and have a baby, we became family. It’s a beautiful moment and it’s something I’ll always have, you know? We all welcomed Dream into this world: how cool is that?”
On Rob as a father: “He’s a wonderful dad. I think it’s because he had such a great father.”
On co-parenting King Cairo with Tyga, who is now in a relationship with Rob’s sister, Kylie Jenner: “It’s important to me and Tyga no to have negative energy. Kids breathe energy. You have to learn to forgive and forget. Many people don’t like to forgive others. Even if someone does something awful to you, you need to forgive them to be able to move on with your life. You can’t hold on to that stuff because it’ll make you a bitter person and it’ll block your blessings. You need to let it go and be free…I really feel people are in your life for seasons or reasons, and the reason I was with Tyga was to have King. Tyga and I dated and we found something in each other, there was love there, and the outcome of that was King. I feel happy and blessed that we can co-parent: we have a healthy relationship to be better for King.”
