It’s not unusual for a family to be divided over an in-law, and in the case of the clannish Kardashian family, it was bound to happen. Rob Kardashian is the only son in the Kardashian clan and the only one who can carry on the family name. That seems to make Rob’s choice of a partner especially important for his sometimes overly protective sisters.
Hollywood Life reports that Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian have never been “the biggest fans” of Rob’s girlfriend, Blac Chyna, and are often very outspoken about their dislike and distrust of Blac. It’s true that the whole world is watching the huge improvement in Rob’s physical and emotional health ever since he started hanging with Blac, but Kylie and Khloe have yet to be convinced that Chyna is good for their brother in the long term.
Kylie can hardly be blamed for her attitude, since she has to deal with the complications brought about by Blac having once dated Kylie’s boyfriend, Tyga. It doesn’t help that Tyga and Blac have a son together.
Momager and Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner has just about had it with the family squabbles over her only son, and it looks like she’s stepping in with a plan to “squash their differences.” A source close to the family shared some of the inside scoop on Kris’ hopes, explaining that Kris knows her son Rob, and she is determined to “rally all the girls, especially Kylie and Khloe,” to help Rob hang on to the happiness he’s finally found after years of depression and mental health struggles.
“If Kris knows one thing, it’s her son. Rob hasn’t been this happy in years. He’s healthy, smiling and he’s out and about and that’s largely in part because of Blac.”
The source said that “under no circumstances” would Kris do anything to take away Rob’s precious happiness, and the manager side of momager Jenner has been “slowly but surely” persuading the Kardashian and Jenner sisters to “accept Rob’s relationship” and start welcoming Blac “into the fold” as part of the family.
“Kris wants her son to be his best self. And it’s obvious he will be that with Blac by his side.”
However much Rob’s sisters look down on Chyna, they can’t deny that their brother is looking better than he has looked in years. Rob has lost weight, he’s working out, and he’s eating healthier. Blac took charge of the menu and put her own nutritionist on the job of making sure Rob has the healthiest food choices right there in front of him. Chyna shared her home gym with Rob so that he could work out in private and not have to face going out of the house each time he wanted to hit the gym.
Chyna’s dedication to helping her man has been a huge benefit for Rob, who is reported to have lost as much as 50 pounds since he’s hooked up with Blac. People reports that a source close to Kris Jenner says Kris sees how well Rob and Blac work together, and she’s happy to promote their relationship.
“Kris is actually super stoked on them being together now. She feels like Rob was pulled out of his depression phase because of her.”
