Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have 'not broken up,' he says after Instagram purge

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have not broken up, he said Sunday. They just want to keep things more to themselves.

Good luck with that, kids.

"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," the spotlight-avoider wrote, captioning a super-closeup of himself and his lady that may or may not still appear below, given Kardashian's penchant for frequently purging his social media accounts and starting fresh.

Kardashian's declaration came in the wake of unnamed-sources stories Sunday that said the couple, who've been linked since mid-January, had broken up after a fight.

"They have had a great few weeks, but things got too serious too fast. They were spending a lot of time together and not giving each other enough space," one source told People.

Adding to the drama? After Rob declared his love for Chyna on Friday, there was a weekend burst of that house-cleaning habit we just mentioned, in which he nuked all pics and mentions of her from his social media and she did the same, according to Gossip Cop. Also, People said, she posted a picture of a woman reaching toward the camera, with the caption, "When you just get out of a relationship & your hoe friend welcomes you back into the World of Hoe."

(Now, those engagement-ring emojis around Chyna's name in Rob's "we're not broken up" posting do suggest "too much, too soon" wouldn't be an unreasonable conclusion. Also, Rob finally left sister Khloe Kardashian's home at the end of January, after years of living there, and reportedly moved into Chyna's casa. Do the math, and you'll see that looks like it happened after the two were a couple for only two weeks.)

Some backstory, briefly: Chyna, 27, real name Angela Renee White, has a child with and was formerly engaged to Tyga, 26, real name Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, the on-off boyfriend of Kylie Jenner, who at 18 is Rob's 10-years-younger half-sister. It did not end well between Chyna and Tyga. Did we mention drama? Yeah, we did.

The sock-seller, who's been staying out of the spotlight for the last couple of years while struggling with his weight and health, bought a $2.3-million house in Calabasas last month — reportedly with some help from the family. Er, the family trust.

So maybe the stay at Chyna's is only temporary?
