Rob Kardashian isn’t doing too well when it comes to filming his new reality show, Rob & Blac.
Throughout the first several months of this year, Rob Kardashian appeared to be on top of the world as he and Blac Chyna announced they were engaged and expecting, but after production began on his Keeping Up With the Kardashians spinoff, the 29-year-old sock designer appeared to take a turn for the worse.
“He’s struggling to readjust to the grueling work schedule,” a source explained to Us Weekly on August 10.

According to the report, Rob Kardashian is beginning to feel that his decision to film a spinoff with his fiancee, who is currently 5-months pregnant with their daughter, the first child for Kardashian and the second for Blac Chyna, who also has a 3-year-old son, King Cairo, with her ex-boyfriend Tyga, was a mistake.
“It was like a honeymoon every day with Chyna before filming started,” the source explained. Now, however, Rob Kardashian is said to be under major stress as he and Blac Chyna attempt to film their 6-episode series.
“Working with your pregnant partner and living together has been stressful. [Rob Kardashian] just shuts down,” the source said. “You will see a lot of stress and fighting on the show.”
During one particular shoot, which was scheduled for San Diego, where Rob Kardashian and his family were expecting to celebrate his grandmother MJ’s July 26 birthday, Blac Chyna was unable to get in contact with her soon-to-be-husband and ended up filming the scene by herself.
“This show is capturing their real lives,” a pal explained of the couple. “There are great highs and low lows. It goes back and forth. Production is still in full swing and Chyna is very happy with the way things are going.”

Although Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna reportedly split briefly last month when Kardashian removed all traces of the model off of his Instagram page, she later surfaced with her engagement ring on, confirming she and Rob Kardashian had not split.
“They’re not broken up,” a Blac Chyna source told People Magazine at the time.
“They filmed over the weekend and had an argument,” a second source explained to the magazine. “It’s hard to see Rob and Chyna actually splitting. [Rob Kardashian] is looking forward to becoming a dad. It would take a lot for him to break up with her.”
Prior to his relationship with Blac Chyna, Rob Kardashian had been living a reclusive life far away from the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cameras after quitting the show in 2012. However, after embarking on the new relationship, Rob Kardashian began stepping out in public and during Season 12, he returned to the show and landed his own a short time later.
As Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna continue to struggle as they attempt to complete production on their spinoff, they have remained silent about their issues in the press. Meanwhile, his family struggles are playing out on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. During the show, Rob Kardashian’s family members have openly expressed frustrations with Rob, who failed to inform him of his engagement prior to his public announcement on social media.
For more of Rob Kardashian and his family, tune into Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 12, which airs on Sunday nights at 9 p.m., and don’t miss Rob & Blac, which is expected to air on the E! Network later this year.
