In 2016 a few weeks before the release of Kanye West's highly anticipated album, The Life of Pablo, it was announced that Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian was in support of the romantic relationship between her estranged brother, Rob Kardashian, and her former best friend, Blac Chyna. (Blac Chyna is currently linked as the best friend of Amber Rose, ex-girlfriend of Kanye West). In previous years Rob Kardashian has been vocal about his falling out with his sisters, Kylie Jenner included. It was discovered recently that Kylie Jenner is dating the rapper, Tyga. In the past, Tyga was linked to a relationship with Blac Chyna. They conceived a child but it surfaced Tyga had been fooling around with the underage Jenner during the years that Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna were friends and the Kardashians were aware.

Kardashian (Armenian: Քարտաշեան) is an Armenian surname originating in the Ottoman Empire. It involves the Turkish word "Kardeş", which means "sibling" plus the Armenian ending "ian". It is common to confuse the origin of this last name with the word "Kartash", which means "stone carver" in Armenian, but the latter is not the origin. "Kardeş" in its Turkish form without the Armenian "ian" ending is a common Turkish family name in modern day Turkey (exp "Fatih Kardeş" etc.). The Russified version "Kardashoff" also exists today mainly in Russia and neighboring countries.
