ICYMI: It has been reported on numerous occasions that Rob Kardashian has been in a financial whirlwind due to his ongoing custody battle with Blac Chyna, but we couldn’t have imagined just how bad it really is.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the former reality star is reportedly $300,000 in debt, had to sell his home to move in with his mom, Kris Jenner, and even had to resort to selling her half of his Arthur George sock line.
This may explain why Rob claims he can no longer continue to pay Chyna the $20,000 a month child support for their daughter, Dream Kardashian.
According to court documents, Kardashian said, “When the business was struggling, my mother infused it with capital to keep it afloat and from her infusion gained a 50% share in the company.”
He continued, “Previously, the line’s success was in large part due to my regular posting and general promotion on social media. Angela’s [Blac] request for a restraining order against me includes various prohibitions on what I could post online. In order to avoid any potential future issues, I nearly eliminated my social media presence.”
Kris confirmed his statement in the documents: “I helped Robert with his sock line business, Arthur George. I infused the business with capital, purchased goods, and set up distribution and fulfillment centers amongst other tasks. In exchange for the work I did and the money I put in, I acquired 50% interest in the business.”
Yikes! Not only did he mention losing money because of his limited use of social media, but he also revealed the domestic violence restraining order she filed last year has damaged his career, even on the family’s hit reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“I have not participated in the filming of any episodes since this summer when [Chyna] filed a request for a restraining order against me,” he shared in another set of documents obtained by The Blast. “Her request was widely publicized and I was scrutinized by the media.”
He continued, “It has been an extraordinarily difficult time for me emotionally and I have no desire to continue participating in the reality show. I would like to maintain my privacy, try to recover from the emotional damage of the past several months, and explore other business ventures.”
Seems like, from Rob’s eyes, Chyna’s career has only benefited from the media attention. Her alleged worth is over $1.4 million. “She has appeared in the press and on social media to discuss both cases at every opportunity,” he declared in the documents.
We are sure we will hear more about that case as the former couple is reportedly scheduled to meet with a judge in December.
