Since his diabetes diagnosis, Rob Kardashian has got back into shape and has a new romance on the cards. The 28-year-old is now dating model and exotic performer Blac Chyna.

The source told of "concerns" surrounding the new couple due to the model's history with Kylie Jenner's on and off boyfriend Tyga. Blac and the rapper have a child together, which sources feel has lead to a feud between her and Kylie.
The new couple have made their relationship official despite Rob's tendency to stay out of the spotlight. "She and Rob have known each other for a while and she had been staying in touch," the source told the publication.

The American beauty first sparked rumours of a blossoming relationship when she posted a photo of her and Rob cuddling. Although his face is cropped out, his tattooed arm is wrapped around his beau. "The beginning," she captioned the loved-up snap.
Rob has been staying out of the limeight since discovering he had diabetes. His sister, Khloe Kardashian, has opened up about her brother's struggles and the reasons behind his downward spiral. "I don't think he blames any of us. We talk about stuff all the time. I think Rob hit a dark place more so dealing with my dad's death," she explained on Watch What Happens Live when a caller asked if Rob blames his family for his problems.

"His wish was always for Rob to go to college. When Rob finished that, okay what do I do next? He had no direction. I think he felt lost there," Khloe revealed. "Then breakups and all this stuff happened, which I think added to other things in his life."
Mum Kris Jenner opened up about her son returning to life in front of the cameras. "He wants to still come back and shoot the show, he just wants to feel good," Kris explained. "It's not that he doesn't want to be on the show, it's just he wasn't feeling good."
