Robert Arthur Kardashian, known as Rob Kardashian, was an American television personality famous for appearing on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, a reality television series that focuses on his family. The show, which also features his mother, and more importantly his sisters, was one of the most popular reality shows in American television. Prior to the launch of the series, Rob struggled to establish himself in the industry. However, he became a well-recognized face following the success of the series. Apart from the series, he has also appeared in other TV shows, such as ABC's Dancing with the Stars where he placed second. He was also involved with several business ventures and owns a designer sock line called Arthur George.
Rob Kardashian was born in Los Angeles, California, USA, to attorney Robert Kardashian and his wife Kris. His parents divorced when Rob was young and his mother went on to marry Bruce Jenner, known as Caitlyn Jenner. As far as his love life is concerned, Rob has been involved with several ladies. He was in a relationship with actress Adrienne Bailon. Following their break-up, he dated singer Rita Ora. His relationship with Rita ended soon. Rob started dating model Blac Chyna in January 2016 and became engaged to her in April. Soon, they announced via social media that they were expecting a baby. Their daughter Dream Renée Kardashian was born in November 2016. Barely after a month of their daughter’s birth, Rob and Chyna announced that they had broken up. Subsequently, it was reported that he was dating Mehgan James, which he denied in 2017.
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna were first linked in 2016. After Chyna posted a now-deleted photo with an unidentifiable man's tattoo-clad arm to her Instagram in January 2016, fans began suspecting the mystery guy was indeed Rob. Then, the relationship between the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and Chyna ruffled a few feathers within the Kardashian clan. Chyna was rapper Tyga's ex, and the two have a son together, King Cairo. Chyna was previously close pals with Kim Kardashian, though the friendship appeared to fizzle after Tyga started dating Kim's sister Kylie Jenner. Despite a tense start, the Kardashian family worked hard to accept Rob's new love, Chyna. The couple's biggest supporter was Rob's mom, Kris Jenner. Rob was also spotted hanging out with younger sister Kylie, who was previously super betrayed upon hearing about the pair's budding romance. After dating a mere 10 weeks, Rob put a very hefty ring on it and officially confirmed that he and Chyna were engaged. One month after their engagement, the pair announced another bombshell: They were expecting their first child together.
Although Rob and Chyna's relationship initially sparked tension among the Kardashian family, his mom and sisters warmed up to the relationship after they realized how much of a positive impact Chyna had on Rob. Chyna even joined in on future sister-in-law Khloé's 32nd birthday party in June 2016, which was also attended by Kim, Kourtney, Kylie and Kris. Later, in July 2016, Rob went on one of his many social media cleanses, wiping all traces of Chyna from his Instagram and leaving a single photo of himself on his account. The action surprised fans, seeing as the star had been very vocal about their relationship thus far. Soon after, Rob went on another family blocking spree, blocking his sisters and Chyna from his phone and Instagram.

In 2017, Rob and his sister Kylie filed a lawsuit against Chyna. Rob and Kylie, who owns the home where the alleged altercation took place, sued Chyna for battery, assault and vandalism. In the complaint, Rob and Kylie alleged they were forced to seek legal recourse against Chyna as they endured several months of injuries after her deliberate attempt to extort the Kardashian family for her own monetary gains. The complaint also claimed that Chyna's relationship and decision to have a baby with Rob was nothing short of an outright fraud to shake down the Kardashian family, branding her as a stripper that has created a reputation as a money-hungry, shameless pseudo-celebrity. Beside that, Chyna filed her own lawsuit against Rob for allegedly damaging her brand and verbally and physically abusing her. She named Rob, Kris and his sisters Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kylie and Kendall Jenner in the complaint and asked for unspecified damages. In the legal filing obtained by PEOPLE, Chyna claimed she suffered significant damages since her ex-fiancé's explosive social media rampage. She alleged the nude photo scandal and the Kardashian family's influence got her E! reality show, Rob & Chyna, axed before season 2.
