Before Blac Chyna was reportedly pregnant with Rob Kardashian’s baby and prior to her slinging passive-aggressive insults at Kylie Jenner over Instagram, she was temporary best friends with Kim Kardashian. Come take a stroll down memory lane to see how Blac Chyna went from a Kardashian insider to outsider over the years.
It might seem like a long time ago, but there was a time when Kim and Blac Chyna were so tight they were taking “beflies,” which are also known as butt selfies, in the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star’s huge closet. The photo was taken on Jan. 4, 2014, just six months after Kim gave birth to daughter North West. “Getting right for the new year,” she captioned the image.
But Blac Chyna didn’t remain a friend of the Kardashians for long. Things with the family got shaky when her and then-boyfriend Tyga called off their engagement in August 2014. Shortly after he was tied to Kylie Jenner, but denied he was dating the star. He wrote in in September 2014, “Don’t believe the rumors, been friends with the family forever. We’re all just friends.”
DONT BELIEVE THE RUMORS, BEEN FRIENDS WITH THE FAMILY FOREVER. WERE ALL JUST FRIENDS.

While he was friends with the family and attended Kim’s 2014 wedding to Kanye West with Blac Chyna, her relationship with Kim fizzled when Tyga dating Kylie started to go from rumor to fact.
Things escalated when Blac Chyna’s bestie Amber Rose, who used to date Kanye and called Kim a cheater and home-wrecker in 2012, slammed Tyga Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club in February 2015. "Kylie's a baby," she said. "She needs to go to bed at 7 o'clock and relax. It's ridiculous. Tyga should be ashamed of himself. That's how I feel, for sure. He has a beautiful woman and a baby that he left for a 16-year-old who just turned 17."
This didn’t sit well with Khloé Kardashian, who ignited a famous Twitter feud with Amber. “Please stop talking about us in interviews mama. None of us talk about you,” Khloé said in part of her rant. "[There are] 3 sides to EVERY story. His, hers and the truth. I'm not passing judgment but I wish others would do the same until they have facts.”

Since then, Kylie and Blac Chyna took hits at each other on social media. For instance, when the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge went viral, Blac Chyna posted a picture of herself with oversized rubber lips.
When the passive-aggressive post started to die down, around the same time rumors that Kylie was finally over Tyga, Blac Chyna posted a picture of herself in Rob’s arms.
The next day, he shared a picture of Blac Chyna holding car seat and the text read that she’s getting ready to have the only baby with a “Kardashian” last name.
