Kris Jenner is seemingly desperate to keep her only son, Rob Kardashian, in the family fold, and she’s recruited an unlikely ally to make sure everything goes her way. Notoriously reclusive reality television star Rob Kardashian made a splash on celebrity news outlets when he revealed that he and Blac Chyna were officially a couple.
Thanks to Blac Chyna’s year-long feud with Rob Kardashian’s younger half-sister Kylie Jenner, most of the famous Kardashian-Jenner sisters have turned their backs on their brother. Rob Kardashian has had a few difficult years. Rapid weight gain and rumors of substance abuse in 2014 prompted Rob Kardashian to skip his sister Kim Kardashian West’s lavish Italian nuptials, and he’s rarely been seen in public since. The one sister who stayed by Rob’s side during his reclusive period, Khloé Kardashian, threw him out of the mansion they shared. Now, Kris Jenner is calling in reinforcements to make sure Rob stays on the right track.
According to Radar Online, Scott Disick and Rob Kardashian have been spending a lot of time together since Rob’s relationship with Blac Chyna became public knowledge. While Rob Kardashian is notoriously close with his former brothers-in-law Scott Disick and Lamar Odom, there is reportedly more behind the meetings than family members catching up.
It seems that Rob and Kris were barely speaking last year, but that all changed when he started dating Blac Chyna. In fact, Rob even took Blac Chyna to meet Kris, a sure sign that he’s serious about the new romance. An unidentified source told Radar Online that Kris Jenner doesn’t feel that Rob Kardashian’s renewed presence in her life is stable if the only person connecting them is Blac Chyna. She reportedly sent Scott Disick in to secure those ties.
“Because of Scott and Rob’s rekindled friendship, Kris now has another outlet to Rob which is all that she wants right now. Kris is insisting that she be a part of her son’s life right now because all of her daughters have, in some form or another, turned on her. She really just craves the connection with her son again.”
Fortunately for Kris Jenner, there are signs that her behind-the-scenes scheming is having exactly the effect she’s after. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Rob Kardashian reached out to Kris Jenner through his Instagram account. The shout out featured a photograph of Kris Jenner’s bejeweled hands clutching an expensive pair of sunglasses.
In fact, Kris Jenner’s schemes have been so successful, that she might have given Scott Disick another target. Tyga and Kylie Jenner have been dogged by breakup rumors in recent weeks after the couple took a time-out in November 2015, on the eve of Tyga’s 26th birthday. Reportedly, Kylie is slowly phasing her older beau out of her life, a delicate process because at any moment he might lash out and damage her reputation.
There’s one problem with Tyga and Kylie’s relationship demise, the couple has been ratings gold for the family flagship reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. With Kim Kardashian West happily married with two children, Kourtney Kardashian’s fiery relationship with Disick over, and Khloé Kardashian taking a break from dating to care for her estranged husband Lamar Odom, the Kardashian-Jenner family brand can’t afford to let any storylines slip through the crack.
Could that be why Scott Disick and Tyga were spotted partying together recently? According to Us Weekly,Scott Disick and Tyga took Las Vegas by storm on February 5, when the rapper made a club appearance at Drai’s Nightclub. Disick and Tyga reportedly chilled in a VIP booth all night. There’s no word on what the two men discussed during the hangout. Which begs the question, are the men of the Kardashian empire on Kris Jenner’s side or each others?
