Rob Kardashian: I’m Broke! I Should Be Getting Child Support!
A couple years ago, Rob Kardashian used his pelvis muscles to thrust himself into Blac Chyna.
As a result, the former lovers now have a baby daughter together.
And, as it relates to that baby daughter, Rob Kardashian has now thrust himself back into the spotlight.
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Rob is alleging that he can no longer afford to pay the $ 20,000 per month in child support that he’s been forking over to his ex for the care of little Dream.
In an ironic twist, Rob and his attorneys argue that Rob doesn’t really have the money to meet this high demand specifically due to a previous action taken by Chyna herself.
Back in July of 2017, Chyna took out a restraining order against Kardashian.
She claimed at the time that Rob beat her — and, even though Rob has disputed this account, he says in these new papers that he’s been forced to lay low due to the scrutiny associated with this claim.
He no longer appears on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which had been Rob’s main source of income.
“I have not participated in the filming of any episodes since this summer when [Chyna] filed a request for a restraining order against me,” Rob says.
“Her request was widely publicized and I was scrutinized by the media.”
Adds Rob in this filing:
“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.”
Based on this report, Rob had been making $ 1 million per year for his participation on the E! juggernaut.
It was on this figure that a judge declared Rob could and should pay Chyna $ 20,000 per month in child support.
HOWEVER, Rob was only paid in 2018 for Keeping Up with the Kardashians episodes in which he actually appeared; at $ 50,000 per episode.
Conversely, Rob argues, Chyna is now a “model and entrepreneur.” (And a rapper!)
He explains that she has used their romance to enhance her public persona and profile and “has appeared in the press and on social media to discuss both cases at every opportunity.”
Based on financial records, Chyna is allegedly worth over $ 1.4 million right now.
Roles have apparently switched in the past year or so, as Kardashian claims he was making around $ 100,000 per month at the time of the couple’s split… to less than $ 10,000 now.
Chyna, however, rakes in about $ 60,000 per month.
Therefore, what the heck, right?!? She should be the one paying him child support!
Rob is actually seeking to reverse their entire arrangement.
His lawyers approximate that, based on what Chyna earns, Kardashian should collect $ 2,864 each month for his 50/50 custody of Dream.
Will he actually win that argument?
Chyna’s team says Rob is “manipulating” these numbers and is not presenting a full, clear picture to the court.
A hearing to discuss this matter further has been scheduled for December.
