Rob Kardashian might be getting back into the family business, but not the business you might think. Rob Kardashian is a successful sock designer, so he probably wasn’t hurting for cash, but the pricey arrest of new girlfriend Blac Chyna and getting thrown out of the home he shared with older sister Khloe Kardashian might have the only Kardashian son experiencing a cash flow problem. At least, that’s what veteran porn mogul Larry Flint is hoping.
According to TMZ, Larry Flint recently sent a letter to Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna, offering them the chance to appear in their very own sex tape. It seems that Larry Flint is looking to expand his empire into the lucrative celebrity sex tape market, and he thinks Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna would be the perfect candidates to help launch the division. How confident is Flint that Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are the right couple? In the letter, Flint says the two could make up to $1 million.
The members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan are no strangers to sex tapes. A sex tape that Kim Kardashian-West made with Ray J leaked in 2006. While most people would have shied away from the spotlight after such an intimate moment became public, Kim Kardashian-West and her family rode the wave of public interest into multi-million dollar careers for all of them. According to Forbes, Kim Kardashian West earned $52.3 million in 2015, nearly twice what she earned in 2014. In fact, Kim Kardashian-West is so dominant in the realm of reality television that she is the only reality television personality to appear on the Forbes“The World’s Highest Paid Celebrities” list. Granted, most of that came from revenue generated by her iOS game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, but it’s hard to imagine that any of it would have been possible if the sex tape hadn’t made her a household name?
Could Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna achieve similar levels of mind-blowing success? It’s possible. Rob Kardashian’s new romance with Blac Chyna has definitely raised his visibility. Overnight he went from the mostly-ignored, hermit younger brother of the Kardashian sisters to the front page of every celebrity news outlet. Some fans love the Romeo & Juliet chord the romance strikes. Blac Chyna has had a long-running feud with Khloe Kardashian thanks to snide comments she made about Kylie Jenner’s relationship with Tyga, father of Blac Chyna’s son.
Some fans, however, seem more interested in the fallout Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s romance has caused in the Kardashian family. Rob’s once inseparable relationship with Khloe Kardashian crumbled after Khloe returned to the Calabasas mansion she and Rob shared to find her home full of trash and empty alcohol bottles, allegedly courtesy of Blac Chyna. And Rob’s baby sister, Kylie Jenner, doesn’t seem ready to forgive and forget when it comes to Blac Chyna. According to Hollywood Life, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan is convinced that Blac Chyna is only using Rob to get back at the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family. If so, a sex tape would be a good way to accomplish that.
But there are signs that Blac Chyna is ready to put aside her differences with the Kardashian-Jenner clan for Rob’s sake. Shortly before her arrest for public intoxication, a photographer asked Blac Chyna if she cared what the notoriously tight-knit Kardashian-Jenner family thought of her relationship with Rob. Blac Chyna indicated that she actually cares what her boyfriend’s family thinks about the relationship.
If that’s the case, Blac Chyna has some serious amends to make, and a sex tape isn’t the best way to do it.
