Could Blac Chyna be hurting Rob Kardashian more than she’s helping?
Initial reports suggested that the Instagram model might be a positive influence on Rob Kardashian’s life, but secondary reports question whether that’s truly the case. In fact, TMZ reported Tuesday that the Kardashian family is concerned that Rob’s life is in danger.
In 2015, the Kardashian brother was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, which means he has to take insulin and medication. According to the report from TMZ, the Kardashian family is concerned that Rob is partying hard with his new girlfriend, Blac Chyna, which is causing him not to take his meds. In fact, TMZ reported that Kris Jenner’s trip to Blac Chyna’s house was done in an effort to remind Rob of his medication.
“What’s more, the family is deeply concerned Rob’s life is in danger because they think he’s not taking his diabetes meds. We’ve learned when Kris Jenner beelined it for Chyna’s house last Friday, she arrived with Rob’s insulin and other Rx meds, worried he had stopped taking them.”
On the same day that Kris Jenner rushed to her house, Blac Chyna was arrested in Austin after she allegedly verbally abused an airport bartender and was barred from boarding her next flight. After the incident, police described Blac Chyna’s behavior as “unpredictable,” saying that she “going from extremely angry, cursing at everyone then to crying.”
Chyna was ultimately charged with public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance. According to reports, Chyna allegedly had two ecstasy pills in her glasses case.
The possession charge was enough to raise eyebrows for the Kardashians, especially when you consider a phone call they allegedly received two weeks prior. According to TMZ, a family member received a call from one of Rob’s party buddies. The friend is now clean, according to the report, but that didn’t stop Kardashian from allegedly looking to score drugs. The source told TMZ that Rob has been calling many of his old party friends as of late.
After Blac Chyna’s arrest, Rob reportedly drove from Los Angeles to Austin to pick up Blac. A recent photo of Kardashian looking scruffy seems to confirm the report. Find out more about the trip in the video below.
Driving to Austin seems like a drastic action to take for a brand new girlfriend, and TMZ isn’t the only news outlet with reports that the Kardashian family is concerned about the new relationship between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. A source also told People that the family believes the relationship to be worth watching closely.
“It’s troublesome that she was caught with drugs. There is a concern now that Chyna might not be great for him. Nobody wants their relationship to have a negative effect on Rob or end badly.”
In recent years, Rob Kardashian has retreated from the Keeping Up with the Kardashians spotlight as he’s reportedly struggled with depression and health issues. Rob’s relationship with Blac Chyna has thrust him right back into public view, though, and Blac’s contentious relationship with Rob’s famous family likely has something to do with that.
Blac Chyna and Rob’s sister Kim Kardashian West used to be close friends, but that all seemed to fall apart after Kim’s younger sister Kylie Jenner began dating Tyga. Blac Chyna and Tyga previously dated and even have a 3-year-old son together, King Cairo Stevenson. Blac Chyna and Kylie Jenner have had an ongoing feud for quite some time, and for the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, Rob’s hookup with Blac Chyna feels like a betrayal.
What do you think? Do you think Rob Kardashian’s health could be in danger if he’s decided to start partying hard again? Why or why not?
