Kris Jenner has remained tight-lipped about her son Robert Kardashian’s controversial relationship with Blac Chyna, which is not surprising given how the romance divided the Kardashian-Jenner clan for months. But on Tuesday, the Kardashian matriarch finally broke her silence on the issue, the Mirror reports.
Rob Kardashian sparked some controversy when he started dating Blac in January on account of the fact that the exotic performer is the mother to 3-year-old King Cairo with her ex, Tyga, who is dating Rob’s sister Kylie Jenner. After learning about the relationship, Khloe kicked Rob out of her house. Since then, Rob’s relationship with his sisters had been on shaky ground.
Rob seems to have patched things up with his Kardashian sisters right on his 29th birthday, as they were seen attending his birthday bash during the weekend. Khloe was the only one unable to attend due to an illness (or, at least, that’s what she said). Blac Chyna also didn’t attend, which proves that all is not well between her and the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
In her appearance at Australia’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Kris Jenner shared her thoughts about her son’s romance with the 26-year-old exotic performer. Jenner admits that while she has never been around Blac that much, she “seems like a really nice girl.”
“I don’t know too much about their relationship. I haven’t really seen her that much and I don’t know her as well as everyone else. She seems like a really nice girl but I just haven’t been around her,” Kris said.
Kris Jenner says that she’s thrilled with the progress Rob has made in terms of his health and general well-being.
“He is doing really, really well. He is trying to be healthy and get in shape and he is also working on a couple of projects,” she said.
Rob Kardashian went into hiding from the spotlight since struggling with deep depression and obesity after being diagnosed with diabetes two years ago. Rob chose to live in seclusion for the better part of two years since then.
Since he hooked up with Blac earlier in the year, Rob appears to have turned his life around. Blac reportedly motivated the 29-year-old reality star to visit the gym on a regular basis and to maintain a healthy diet. Rob appears to have slimmed down, not to mention that he looks happier than ever.
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna haven’t been exactly shy about expressing their love for each other in public, as they were seen numerous times indulging in some major PDA. On February 18, the pair were spotted making out while leaving a doctor’s office in Beverly Hills. In fact, Blac and Rob stopped right in front of photographers and started kissing each other as if no one else was around.
Their PDA moments extend to social media as well, as the couple shared some of their tender and intimate moments on Instagram.
Even with Blac Chyna helping turn Rob’s life around for the better, the Kardashian sisters appear to be not quite ready to welcome her into the family. Rob finally getting to meet his sisters on his birthday, however, is a good start. Even if they don’t openly admit it, his sisters must be grateful for everything Blac has done for their brother.
Since he started living as a recluse two years ago, Rob Kardashian hasn’t appeared in a single episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. But now that he has Blac in his life, Rob seems ready to be in the limelight again, as he is reportedly setting his sights on starring in a new KUWTK-style reality show with Blac, as reported in the Daily Mail.
