The Kardashians and the Jenners all came together for Rob Kardashian’s surprise birthday party this past week, but Rob’s heart-throb and girlfriend Blac Chyna was conveniently left out of the guests list, according to Hollywood Life.
According to the report, Rob Kardashian turned 29 on Thursday, and although all his family members could not get together for a birthday bash on that particular day, they made sure to make Rob feel lucky all the same a couple of days later on Saturday, as the entire family and Rob’s close friends gathered for a St. Patrick’s Day-themed get-together at Nobu in Malibu on March 19.
Reality star Kim Kardashian was present at her brother’s birthday party with husband Kanye, while Rob Kardashian’s younger half-siblings, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, were also present at the party.
Although the guest list was not extensive, family matriarch Kris Jenner, who is not particularly fond of Blac Chyna, was also in attendance, along with Scott Disick, Tyga, Corey Gamble, Kourtney Kardashian, North West, Penelope Disick, and Mason Disick.
Kim uploaded Snapchat videos of the event, in one of which North West and Kanye West can be seen smiling at the camera. Kylie, on the other hand, Snapchatted the pre-sunset meal, which included green sunglasses and party favors that she and Kourtney wore while wishing Rob a happy birthday.
Thanks to the sisters’ documentation of the event through Snapchat, we also know that Caitlyn Jenner and Khloe Kardashian did not attend Rob Kardashian’s birthday bash. While we do not yet know what prompted Caitlyn to miss the party, Khloe took to Twitter to explain her reasons for missing the get-together.
“The kiddies got me sick… feeling like s**t today. Take your vitamins world[.]”
But while virtually the entire Kardashian-Jenner family was present for Rob’s birthday bash, his model girlfriend, Blac Chyna, was probably not invited to the party. Chyna was spotted hanging out with a friend in Los Angeles when Rob was celebrating his birthday with matriarch Kris Jenner and the rest of his family.
Kris Jenner’s skepticism at Rob’s relationship with Chyna is well known. When Rob started dating Chyna in January, she was not a favorite among Rob’s family members, with media reports suggesting that Kris did not initially approve of the relationship.
A few weeks later, however, a source close to the family suggested that Kris had taken a liking to Blac because of her ability to set Rob out on a new path of transformation.
“Kris thinks Blac is a live saver and may be good for Rob. She is hoping Blac is going to take Rob from being a boy to a man. Rob has been out three days in a row after not being seen for months. Kris is pleased about that and knows Blac is the reason — she’s grateful Blac is helping Rob get his own shine back. No one has been able to get him out of the house, and Blac should be credited with helping him out of his funk.”
So while many expected Rob’s family to have buried the hatchet with Blac, her omission from the party indicates that all might not yet be well between her and the family.
But even if Chyna is shown the cold shoulder by Rob Kardashian’s family, we all know that Rob is extremely happy with Blac. The couple celebrated Rob’s birthday together last Tuesday and also took a trip to Legoland and flaunted major PDA.
We can only hope that Rob’s heart is in the right place, as would his family.
