Kris Jenner breaks silence on Rob Kardashian's romance with Blac Chyna

by Gemma Strong

So far Kris Jenner has remained tight-lipped on the subject of her son Rob Kardashian's romance with Blac Chyna. But this week, the Kardashian matriarch broke her silence.

"He feels so much better about himself (since they started dating)," Kris said during an appearance on Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show. "He is doing really, really well. He is trying to get healthy and get in shape and he is working on a couple of projects."

Kris Jenner shared her thoughts on Rob's romance with Blac Chyna

Once-reclusive Rob started dating Blac at the start of the year, and their romance has certainly raised a few eyebrows; Blac has a son King Cairo with Tyga, who is now dating Rob's younger half-sister Kylie Jenner.

On the subject of 27-year-old Blac – real name Angela Renee White – Kris admitted: "I don't know too much about their relationship. I haven't seen her that much and I don't know her as well as everyone else. She seems like a really nice girl but I just haven't been around her."

Rob has seemed happier than ever since he started dating Blac

Last week, Rob celebrated his 29th birthday with his girlfriend and her young son. The duo surprised the star with a low-key dinner party at home and a big St Patrick's Day-themed birthday cake, and Blac shared videos of them singing 'Happy Birthday' to Rob before he blew out his candles.

A few days later, Rob reunited with his family to celebrate his big day – the first time in years he has been pictured with the clan. Rob's sisters were said to be upset about his romance with Blac, but clearly any differences had been put aside as the group came together at Nobu in Malibu for a belated party.

Rob was joined by his mum and her boyfriend Corey Gamble, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and their daughter North, Kourtney Kardashian with former partner Scott Disick and two of their children, son Mason and daughter Penelope. Rob's sisters Kendall and Kylie as well as her boyfriend Tyga were also by the birthday boy's side.

Blac and Khloé Kardashian were absent from the celebrations, but Khloé later explained she wasn't feeling well and decided to stay at home. "The kiddies got me sick," she tweeted.
