When the news of Soulja Boy and Chyna's new relationships surfaced online, it was a little surprising. 

One reason that it was a shock was because it was just days`after Blac Chyna broke up her ex-boyfriend, Kid Buu. It was also surprising because Soulja Boy, who is currently starring in 'Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition' with his on-off girlfriend Nia Long, was linked to another woman on Instagram and seemed to be happy now.

But after a recent report from TMZ, it all makes sense. TMZ is claiming that Soulja and Chyna started dating to get back at Tyga.

"Sources close to the new couple tell TMZ ... when they initially started chatting a couple weeks ago by sliding into each other's DMs, they concocted a plan to piss off Tyga -- start pretending they were dating."

Then they reportedly began falling for each other for real.

As you already know, Chyna has a son with Tyga - who left her for Kylie Jenner (who was a minor at the time.)

And Tyga and Soulja have been lightweight beefing over who had the biggest comeback of 2018.
