Rob Kardashian seems to be making amends with his family after all the drama that followed his announcement that he's dating half-sister Kylie Jenner's current boyfriend Tyga's baby's mother Blac Chyna. But while the Kardashian-Jenner clan seem to have forgiven him for "going against the family" as Khloé Kardashian once put it, they haven't yet extended that same courtesy to Blac.
This weekend, the reality TV family took Rob to Nobu in Malibu for a belated birthday celebration (he turned 29 on March 17, St. Patrick's Day) and nearly the entire crew was present: Kim, Kanye West, their daughter North, Kylie and Tyga, mom Kris Jenner and her man Corey Gamble, Kourtney Kardashian and her estranged baby daddy Scott Disick along with their kids, and even jetsetting Kendall Jenner. Khloé couldn't make it, she explained, because she was sick. Caitlyn Jenner was reportedly out of town. Blac, however, was definitely in town but seemingly not invited for the festivities:
The festivities included a cake with a throwback picture of Rob's face screen printed on it, lots of St. Patty's Day decor and — of course — a constant stream of Instagram posts and Snapchat videos. "It really seemed like a fun celebration," an eyewitness tells People. "There was no tension and everyone enjoyed themselves. They all sang Happy Birthday and gave Rob a cake with a picture of his face. Rob looked and seemed very happy."
It's hard to imagine that this isn't going to cause problems between Blac and Rob. Clearly, the Kardashians are not ready to welcome her back into the fold the way she was when she engaged to Tyga and she and Kim were besties.
Blac, meanwhile, threw Rob a birthday celebration of her own last week. In addition to a lowkey dinner party at home with a few friends and her son King Cairo, "Chyna got him a few thoughtful gifts and she is giving him attention," a source says. The source also points out what Chyna had an appearance in LA on Saturday night, the same night his family took him out to dinner, but considering celebs don't usually show up for their club appearances until late at night, it doesn't seem like a fitting excuse for her missing the family celebration. In fact, Chyna was spotted hanging out with a friend around the time Rob was at dinner with his family.
With Rob seeming happier — and healthier — than he has in years, hopefully his family will get on board with his love life and he won't be stuck in an awkward situation.
