Rob Kardashian has dated celebrities of the likes of Rita Ora and Adrienne Bailon, but his new fiancé and baby mama Blac Chyna was relatively unknown. Seeing as she’s about to give birth to the newest Kardashian, you probably ought to get to know her a little better. Here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about Blac Chyna.
1. She has a fake name
Like many celebrities, Blac Chyna doesn’t use her real name. The 27-year olds real name is Angela Renee White, which is a hell of a lot more traditional than her stage pseudonym. She has confirmed that when she marries Rob she will change her name to Angela Kardashian.
2. She has a criminal record
Back in January, just days after news broke of her dating Rob Kardashian, Chyna was arrested on charges of public intoxication and possession of a banned substance. She was attempting to board a flight from L.A to London when the arrest took place.
3. She used to be a stripper
Way back in the day, Chyna used to work as an exotic danger at the Kim of Diamonds strip club in Miami. TMZ reports that this was where she first met Tyga, back in 2011. Chyna has never officially confirmed these rumors. Her best friend, Amber Rose, talks openly of her past as a stripper.
4. She went to Kim Kardashian’s wedding
Well this is awkward… Turns out Blac attended Kim and Kanye’s extravagant Italian nuptials back in 2014. Her and Tyga attended as a couple, and reportedly were on great terms with the entire family.
5. She starred in a Nicki Minaj rap video
Before Nicki made it real big with her music, she released the video for her single Come On A Cone, and it heavily features Chyna. Both women are seen sporting platinum blonde wigs and look like twins in the scene. Interested? You can check out the video here.
6. She used to be best friends with Kim Kardashian
