Rob Kardashian has always been kind of a mystery to us, and his relationship with Blac Chyna was no different. One day it seemed like they were in it for the long haul, and a week later it was like they were never going to speak again. It probably didn’t help that Chyna is a Grade-A psycho, and also that Rob couldn’t stop TEXTING OTHER BITCHES.
Well, it looks like Rob has moved on from Chyna, and he’s picked someone…just as trashy. Her name is Mehgan James, and she’s a reality star too! She first appeared on Bad Girls Club (classy!!), and then she was a cast member on the fourth season of Basketball Wives LA. Both shows that we watch religiously, naturally.
So let’s talk about Mehgan. First of all, no, that’s not a typo. She actually spells her own fucking name wrong, so that’s immediate points off. She’s also definitely kind of hot, but also she looks crazy in a lot of photos. She definitely looks like she’s into botox. To be fair though, Blac Chyna has cheek piercings, so Rob is used to women with questionable cosmetic choices.
Mehgan only made it on Basketball Wives because she used to date Kedrick Brown (still not a typo), a random former NBA player who now plays pro basketball in Turkey to make ends meet. Like, who even knew they had professional basketball in Turkey? Kedrick might be a cool dude, but let’s just say Mehgan isn’t exactly used to dating all-stars. Sound like Rob is a perfect match!
So now Rob and Mehgan seem to be together, even though Rob’s denying it. But Rob has also posted some sappy Instagrams recently about Chyna, which have since been deleted. The official story is that Rob and Chyna are just dedicated to being good parents for Dream, but it’s always felt like Rob wasn’t actually ready for that relationship to be over. All we really want is one good, hair-pulling confrontation between Chyna and Mehgan, so E! better fire up those cameras. Kris, make it happen.
As we all know, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are broken up, as evidenced by Katy Perry’s new “I’m Going Through A Breakup” pixie cut. So which heartthrob nobody has cared about since 2005 will Katy Perry take off the market next? Should we pull Shane West out of retirement? Maybe give Ben Mckenzie a call? I know Josh Hartnett isn’t doing anything.
Nope, it looks like the most viable option for Katy Perry to continue to crush our high school selves’ heart is Ryan Phillippe who, like any man who has caught feelings for a woman, took to Twitter this week to declare that he and KP are not dating. Because there is no better way to let the world know that you’re not dating someone than to “jokingly” tweet about it, because the idea is soooo funny to you. Ryan Phillippe is basically every dude who has ever casually mentioned how “everyone” thinks that you’re dating just to see how you react, and then acts totally shocked if you show interest. Seriously, look at this shit:
I AM NOT DATING KATY PERRY. BARELY KNOW HER. PLEASE STOP FLYING HELICOPTERS OVER MY HOUSE. SHE IS NOT HERE.
— Dr. Philz (@RyanPhillippe) April 10, 2017
Oh really, Ryan? Paparazzi are “flying helicopters” over your house looking for Katy Perry? How do you even know what the helicopters are looking for? Maybe they’re a search party trying to locate your career, which hasn’t been seen since the last time we had a republican president. Predictably, Twitter was not buying this fuckboy-esque behavior from Phillippe, and pointed out the obvious:
@RyanPhillippe THATS WHAT SOME1 WHO HAS KATY PERRY IN HIS BASEMENT WOULD SAY…..

Okay but here is where shit gets interesting because, as we know, Katy Perry is one of the most extra pop stars in existence and boasts a Taylor Swift level roster of A-list ex boyfriends (literally, considering they both dated John Mayer). KP, instead of doing what any self-respecting person would do and ignoring Phillippe’s obvious thirst trap, did what most post-breakup betches would do and decided to fuck wit it:
Can u let me out of this basement pls? https://t.co/I2WKOsIxak
— Katy Perry (@katyperry) April 10, 2017
So now here we have two very famous (or, used to be very famous) individuals who are on Twitter telling people that they’re not dating but are also simultaneously hardcore flirting for all of the world to see. Do these two think we’re fucking dumb? I haven’t put thousands of hours into stalking my ex’s mentions to not recognize when two people are flirting online. Please do not insult me this way. Of course, Phillippe, who hasn’t been relevant a day since he stopped being Reese Witherspoon’s husband, responded immediately:
— Dr. Philz (@RyanPhillippe) April 11, 2017
And then, because Katy just couldn’t resist going back and responding to the original tweet…
Hi, nice to meet you, sorry bout that @RyanPhillippe carry on, lol.
— Katy Perry (@katyperry) April 10, 2017
There is a 90% chance that Phillippe slid directly into Katy Perry’s DMs after this tweet was sent, and the two of them are vigorously sexting at this exact moment. Seriously, you don’t joke about kidnapping a woman and keeping her in your basement unless you really like her. Beauty And The Beast taught us that. This Twitter convo has all the trademarks of a celeb romance in the making. Katy Perry is obviously trying to come off as a “cool girl” here, using a casual, lowercase “lol” to show that she is emotionally distant, though those of us who study in Textology know that the only way that she could show that she is more interested would be to say “k” and sign off for a while. Phillippe’s interest is a given because, literally what else is he doing right now? Serious question.
Now please excuse me while I find someone to bet on wedding dates online with me. I give it six months.
