Rob Kardashian’s “new girl” Mehgan James allegedly planted relationship rumors for fame, according to a source for TMZ.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Mr. Kardashian has moved on from his relationship with Blac Chyna and hooked up with a new girl, Basketball Wives and Bad Girls Club vet Mehgan James. It didn’t take long for Rob to dismiss the rumors, taking to Twitter to categorically state that he has never met or even heard of her before. Mehgan also set the record straight on Instagram, writing that she is “CLEARLY not dating Rob,” and then adding that those who fell for it are the types who believe everything they read.
Mehgan James, in denying that she’s Rob Kardashian’s new girl, also took a swipe at the Kardashians, suggesting that the famous family had something to do with the romance rumors.
“I do not control the media, BUT we all know who has the media on their payroll,” she said.
As previously reported by BET, Rob’s sisters were not thrilled about the notion of their brother dating Mehgan since they think she’s too “out of control” for him and aren’t likely to provide him the stability and peace of mind that he so desperately needs after his recent breakup with Blac Chyna.
“The last thing they want for Rob is another toxic relationship now that he’s moving on from Chyna,” an insider for E! News said.
Was James playing the “fake news” victim to prop up her popularity? Well, TMZ’s sources claim that she did, categorically stating that she had a “team” contacting a bevy of media outlets to feed them the story. Before long, multiple gossip sites broke the news that Rob Kardashian is dating new girl Mehgan James. As most celebrity reports go, the story took a life of its own.
As such, Entertainment Tonight previously reported that Rob and Mehgan have been dating for three months.
“It’s pretty new,” the source said of the rumored romance. “They’ve been casually seeing each other for a few months now.”
The source even added that James supports Mr. Kardashian in everything that he does, saying that “she’s a good role model in his life.”
If Mehgan really played the internet hoax victim to gain fame, then her plan has worked like a charm. For one, her followers have doubled in a span of a week. As of this writing, her Instagram account already has a little more than 808,000 followers. And Mehgan is giving her followers many good reasons to keep tabs on her, as she’s been updating her Instagram account pretty regularly. And if one of her most recent Instagram posts are any indication, it looks like she’s got a new project in the works, as shown below.
Meanwhile, things between Rob Kardashian and baby mama Blac Chyna remain vague at this point. According to People, the couple ended their relationship and called off their wedding plans because Chyna became frustrated with Rob over time.
“Chyna is super fed up with Rob and thinks he is way too emotional and depressed. She thinks he has terrible issues,” says a source close to the couple. “He is always battling his own insecurities and is unstable. It’s a major turn-off to her, and she thinks it’s incredibly unhealthy for the baby and their family.”
“They’re living separately and she’s keeping Rob at arm’s length, both from the baby and from her,” the source adds.
Despite the split with Chyna, Rob Kardashian is thrilled with his new role as father to Dream Kardashian. He’s been regularly posting photos of her on his Instagram of late.
