Sock entrepreneur Rob Kardashian, who famously became a recluse after a bout with depression, is reportedly in danger of shutting himself off to the world once again.
In the teaser for the next episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris Jenner can be seen talking to Khloe and Kim Kardashian about the fight between their brother and his fiancee, Blac Chyna.
Apparently, as revealed in the clip, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are still not talking to each other.
Kris Jenner then revealed that she already talked to Chyna who expressed to her the same experiences that the family went through when Rob Kardashian first went into hiding.

Blac Chyna is pregnant with her second child and Rob Kardashian’s first.
When Kim suggested that Chyna might prevent Rob from seeing his child, Khloe was not entertaining that possibility since their brother was still very much in love with Blac Chyna the last time that she talked to him.
“You really think they’re over? He seems like when I talked to him he was very much in love with her,” Khloe wonders aloud. “Am I missing something? How long have they not been speaking for?”
James Harden’s former girlfriend also reveals in the teaser that she’s been trying to reach out to their brother by calling him and sending him a text message.
However, up to that point, the 29-year-old has not responded to any of her calls or texts.
Khloe then tells the camera that she’s worried that Rob Kardashian will go back to his destructive habits, knowing that her brother is very sensitive.
“The more they’re fighting and the longer things are bothering him, the more depressed he gets. He’ll go into hiding again, go missing,” she says. “I don’t want Rob to live that life anymore.”
It isn’t clear what prompted Rob Kardashian to go into hiding the first time, but it did create tension in the family. He even ditched Kim’s wedding to Kanye West in Paris because she allegedly scolded him on his weight gain.
He also walked away from a lucrative contract with Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which has become a cash cow for the family.
Rumors have pointed out to the divorce between Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom may have triggered his depression considering that Rob Kardashian and the former Los Angeles Lakers were like brothers.
For a time, Rob Kardashian holed himself up on Khloe’s mansion as he refused to talk to the rest of the family.
Meanwhile, ET Online reported that Blac Chyna’s kid with Rob Kardashian won’t have a letter “k” in the name. Apparently, the couple agreed on that decision together.

Fans and followers will have a chance to get to know Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna some more as they star in their first reality show together, simply titled Rob & Chyna. Talking about the reality series, Blac Chyna said, “I wanted to show people my personality, that I’m not just a pretty face or what some people paint me out to be: this bad person, this stripper ho. I want them to see me as a mom, a business-woman, a growing being.”
However, a source told People magazine that Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian are still very much together.
But the pressure of filming their reality show is reportedly getting to him. At some point, Rob Kardashian lashed out at Blac Chyna while filming episodes and they broke up for a brief spell, but they have gotten back together since then.
