Kris Jenner insists, Blac Chyna saved Rob Kardashian from a deep depression.
Rob and Chyna cover the new issue of Us Weekly.
The cover says: “Rob Kardashian: Rescued by love. Blac Chyna helps Rob fight his fat-shaming demons and finally come out of hiding.”
Rob and Chyna started dating in January. They quickly exchanged “I love yous” and moved in together.
Rob’s family were against it at first (Chyna is the ex-fiancee and baby mother of Tyga. Tyga is currently dating Rob’s youngest sister, Kylie Jenner).
But Rob’s family is warming to the idea of him and Chyna being together. To an extent. For example, the couple spent Rob’s birthday together at Legoland (with Chyna’s son, King Cairo, 3, too). However she was not welcome at the Kardashian family/ birthday dinner a few days later.
The new issue of Us reveals that Kris Jenner is “grateful” to Chyna for getting Rob’s life together.
Before Rob started dating Chyna, he ate himself into a health condition (type 2 diabetes). He gained 100 lbs (he’s since lost 65 lbs).
Rob was a shut-in. He was a recluse who shunned family and friends. He even skipped Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kanye West to avoid the media attention.
Today Rob is living a public life. He is active on social media, he is working on his line of accessories and he seems to be happy where before he was depressed. Kris credits Chyna with the change.
“The whole family sees that it’s her who brought Rob back,” admitted a source. “Kris is so grateful to Blac Chyna for rehabilitating her son.”
What changed for Rob? Rob “went forever without any girl being interested in him,” revealed the source. “His confidence was shattered for so long, so to have this banging [pretty] girl all over him has given him a new lease on life.”
Also Rob, Chyna and her son “have fun all day long.”
So why won’t his family fully accept them together? “There’s no ill will toward her, but yes, they’re cautious because of the Kylie and Tyga situation.”
