Rob Kardashian shared this photo to deny that he has split from Blac Chyna
"It's impossible to have a positive relationship with so much negativity from the media and outsiders and we would appreciate it if everyone respects that –ChyRo @BlacChyna."
Rob started dating Blac Chyna in January, and while they are still going strong, his relationship with his sisters seem to have hit a rocky patch. The new romance is said to have caused problems due to Blac's history with Kylie Jenner's boyfriend Tyga. Blac and the rapper have a child together, which sources feel has led to a feud between her and Kylie.
Khloé Kardashian is also said to be struggling with her brother's new situation – she and Rob are very close, and lived together for much of the time he was struggling with his weight and with depression.
The couple began dating in January
"Khloé feels majorly betrayed by Rob after she always stuck up for him," a source told Us Weekly. "She feels like this is a major blow to the family. Nobody in the family likes it."
However the couple appear to have no intention of hiding their relationship, and Rob has slowly been making more public appearances after being withdrawn from the spotlight for several years.
Blac has also been credited with boosting Rob's confidence by putting him on a diet and helping him to lose weight. Since the pair started dating Rob has been looking noticeably slimmer, and fans have remarked on how much happier he looks.
