The Shady Truth About Rob Kardashian

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

Rob Kardashian's relationship with Blac Chyna is the one that was making headlines for how insulting and unhealthy it is, but that's not where his shadiness ends. He's also cruel to his family, doesn't take care of himself, is one of the most bitter exes ever, and is minimally employed. Behold, the supremely shady side of Rob Kardashian.

He's way too dependent on his family

Out of all the Kardashians, Rob depends the most on the infamy of his last name, because he's accomplished the least. Khloé Kardashian has a fitness book, Strong Looks Better Naked, and her own spinoff series, Revenge Body. Kourtney Kardashian runs the family's Dash boutiques while balancing her time with three kids. Kim Kardashian created an empire, married Kanye West, and has two adorable kids. Kylie Jenner makes bank off of her makeup line. Kendall Jenner is a certified supermodel. Kris Jenner manages everyone. Meanwhile, Rob Kardashian once appeared on Dancing With The Stars and has a sock line. He's just not as impressive as the rest of his famous family, and he's never made a concerted effort to change that.

He lied about going to college

In August 2012, Kardashian said he would be attending the University of Southern California's Gould School of Law. Not so: The school tweeted that Kardashian never even applied to the school, let alone enrolled in the program, writing, "News to us. Wish him luck at the law school he's really attending."

He cheated on his ex

For as much as Rob Kardashian s***-shames other women, you'd think he could keep his own stuff in his pants. You'd be wrong.

In a Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode in 2010, Kardashian admitted to cheating on ex-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon, whom he dated from 2007 to 2009. Bailon explained on The Real in  September 2016, "I will say this, I think anyone who has been in a relationship where they've been cheated on or hurt, it affects you. It affected me so much that I made it a conscious decision not to do that to the next person because when you experience the kind of hurt that being cheated on will make you question yourself. " She added, "He was 21 years old at the time. We were super young. This was over 10 years ago. This is such old news ... With that being said, being cheated on will make you question yourself. 'Was I not pretty enough? Was I not sexy enough? Am I not thin enough? Do I need to do more crunches?' I mean, you will drive yourself insane and sadly sometimes the next person pays for what the last person does."

She previously dished to Latina magazine in 2014, "It's common knowledge that he cheated on me. In my situation, it wasn't like, 'Oh my God! I made a mistake!' He strategically planned things out so that he could cheat on me, and that to me was so disloyal."

He s***-shamed Kim

In a 2011 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the very sister who put the Kardashian family on the map, Kim Kardashian, called Rob a "d**k." He responded by calling her a "w***e," later adding, "I think that you're a w***e and you should shut up." How mature!

He beefed with Kylie in a big way

After Kylie Jenner, Rob's younger half-sister, began dating Tyga, Blac Chyna's ex and father of Chyna's first child, Rob went and hooked up with Chyna. (Still following us? Whew.) After Rob got together with Chyna, he went on the offensive against Jenner — even though Jenner let the roller-coaster couple live in one of her houses (which, btw, they almost trashed).

In an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in April 2017 (via The Daily Mail), Jenner explained, "I agreed [to let Rob and Chyna live in her house], 'cause me and Chyna kinda put everything behind us, and my brother seemed really happy and I wanted him to enjoy his new life and I wasn't here to block anyone's blessing. But my mom calls me to kind of keep me informed on what's going on in my home, and apparently Chyna threw something at my television that I left there. It's just a little disrespectful and I wouldn't do that in anyone else's home ... It's really hard to support a relationship that's really unhealthy, especially when it's hurting my brother and now it's affected me. I just wish they could just stop this kind of roller-coaster ride."

In September 2016, Us Weekly reported that Jenner didn't invite Chyna to a baby shower she'd hosted for Rob, in part because Rob and Chyna were supposed to have been broken up at the time. In retaliation, Rob tweeted Jenner's phone number twice to his 6.66 million Twitter followers, forcing Jenner to have that number disconnected.

His relationship with Blac Chyna caused Kardashian in-fighting

Anyone with half of a brain could have predicted that Rob's relationship with Blac Chyna would have ended in disaster, especially considering her previous connections to his family, but he chose not believe his family, causing a whole lot of drama within the Kardashian clan.

In October 2016, Blac Chyna accused Kylie Jenner of ripping off her idea for her and Tyga's son King Cairo's birthday party. In December 2016, People reported that Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian filed to block Chyna from registering her name, Angela Renee Kardashian, accusing her of of "deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity" that her new name will give her, and alleging that the family would "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill" if the trademark were granted.

He finally claimed to see the light in July 2017, when he tweeted, "Soon as kylie and tyga broke up Chyna was over the game. She had a baby out of spite and I'll never view her the same ... I truly thought Chyna wanted to be a family and that's why I was so loyal to her but I learned my lesson and everyone else was right."

If your whole family thinks someone is bad for you, even if your family is the Kardashian family, it's safe to assume that they're onto something.

He posted revenge porn of Blac Chyna

In July 2017, Kardashian posted a slew of photos of Blac Chyna, whom he'd accused of cheating on him with multiple men, in various states of undress, including explicit photos of her breasts, buttocks, and genitals. When the photos were removed, he posted them again. Not only is that super shady, it's also potentially against California's revenge porn laws. Beverly Hills lawyer Adam Michael Sacks told Radar Online, "Rob can face criminal charges and can go to jail. This would be a misdemeanor case of up to a year, since the photos were really egregious. However, since he took down the photos, he is mitigating the damages. Because he showed remorse, he will be less likely to be prosecuted. He's trying to correct his mistake." (In a truly sick twist, TMZ thinks he did not violate revenge porn laws, because Chyna actually "liked" the photos.)

Still, it's unclear how much remorse he truly feels, because the nude images eventually got him banned from Instagram, so he posted them to Twitter instead, where they were promptly removed again.

He severely s***-shamed Rita Ora

Rob was in love with Rita Ora in 2012, but it didn't last. The fledgling sock designer started a "#ritawhora" hashtag trending on Twitter when he accused her of infidelity.

"She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together," he tweeted (via E! Online). "I wonder how many she will sleep with now that we apart? But I mean 20?!!!"

He added, "When a woman cheats on you with one man I can live with that. People make mistakes, trust me. I have forgiven numerous times...But when a woman disrespects herself by messing with more than 20 men all while being in a relationship with a Faithful man..."

When called out on his public tirade, he got defensive. "I posted what I posted to keep myself from taking her back," he insisted. "Every time she messed up, I took her back for over a year now. I just had to do that to make her hate me."

For her part, Ora denied the cheating accusations, as well as ever being in an actual relationship with Rob to begin with. She told an Australian magazine (via The Mirror), "I never thought it was actually a relationship, in all honesty. I never mentally defined it as 'boyfriend, girlfriend.' When I split up with him, I said, 'It's because I'm never there, I don't know how to do it.' That's all I said, then ... the rest happened. He obviously felt that creating myths was the way forward."

... and he hasn't stopped

After Kardashian split with Ora, he blamed her for his weight gain. On a February 2013 episode of Kourtney And Kim Take Miami (via Daily Mail), he told his sisters over a carb-heavy dinner, "All I did was waste a lot of money and gain 40 pounds." If it was Ora's fault, why did he gain even more weight when she supposedly broke his heart? During a 2012 therapy session, he blamed sister Kim for his issues, whining, "She brings out my negative energy." He's also refused help from his family, including mom Kris Jenner, since he first began his downward spiral. A source told People, "He is very against therapy and any kind of rehab. But his family will continue to push for him to get help until he does."

He still holds a grudge against the singer: On the second episode of Rob & Chyna, which aired in September 2016, Kardashian was still harping on Ora. He told Chyna after an argument, "I had a really bad past relationship where the girl was cheating and having sex with so many different people. That is why I know this is stupid stuff." He didn't name names, but based on how public he's been with his splits, we can all pretty much infer who he meant, and he knows that darn well.

He skipped Kanye and Kim's wedding

When sister Kim tied the knot with rapper Kanye West in Florence, Italy, in 2014, Rob stayed behind, reportedly because he was too insecure about his appearance. He told People, "I was doing my suit fittings in Paris right before the wedding and I just wasn't comfortable. I'm 6'1" and at my most I probably weighed 300 pounds. There were cameras at the airport on our trip there and I was very unhappy with the person I saw in all the pictures. I'm upset I missed my sister's wedding but it was a personal decision. I just wasn't down to have photographers follow me, so I made sure I was away from all of that. I'm very good at disappearing."

He doesn't take care of his physical health

In a series of her hacked, leaked text messages from December 2016, Blac Chyna fumed that Rob was "fat" and "lazy" for not taking initiative to take care of his physical health. When he and Chyna first got together, she helped him lose 50 pounds, but he gained it back after spiraling back into depression. Sources close to the family told TMZ that it's all par for the course for Rob: He lacks motivation because of his depression, which makes him gain weight, which makes him more depressed.

TMZ reported that Rob was hospitalized for diabetes in December 2015 after a deep depression. In August 2016, Rob claimed he was cured.

He may be abusing substances

Though Rob accused Blac Chyna of abusing drugs and alcohol in his July 2017 rant, he may be a hypocrite in that regard. In March 2017, a source told Radar Online, "Rob is a total mess right now ... He has even started drinking and smoking pot again." Another insider hinted to Radar Online that Rob was trying to anesthetize the pain of his split from Chyna. "Rob is doing everything that he can right now to cover up the hurt that Blac Chyna is causing him. He is not able to be present for his daughter at all right now. It is really sad because he is relying on his family to help raise Dream. Everyone is extremely worried about him."

He may have verbally abused Blac Chyna

In December 2016, Blac Chyna's Instagram account got hacked after she walked out on Rob. After regaining control of her account, Chyna accused Kardashian of verbal abuse, as well as of not treating his own personal problems. "I'M DONE. This entire year I have done nothing but help Rob! It's so SAD & PATHETIC how low he'd stoop to cover up HIS PERSONAL ISSUES! I have done nothing but help & loved him from the beginning," she wrote (via People).

She added, "I was verbally abused every other day. I was still there with nothing but high hopes for us! I had to beg him to cut his hair, To take his braces of [sic], and To get more into his businesses! I shouldn't have to tell any grown ass man s**t! Not to mention Just brought him a brand new 2016 Range Rover! I PUT MY PRIDE ASIDE & I GAVE UP MY HOUSE TO MOVE INTO KYLIE'S HOUSE WITH HIM TO BE WITH A MAN!! We weren't together in that house 2 whole weeks before he starting calling me all types of b***es & h**s! AND I NEVER NOT ONCE CHEATED ON ROB! EVER! I gave him the passcode to my phone I have nothing to hide.He refuses to do anything! Eat healthy, work out, work, anything positive, he does nothing ... He's on snapchat acting hurt but he's yet to come see Dream yet!"

He may have also physically abused Blac Chyna

Blac Chyna claims that Rob's abuse didn't stop at the verbal kind and alleged that he engaged in full-blown domestic violence.

In a since-deleted Snapchat post (via Us Weekly) in July 2017, Chyna wrote, "Rob u did all this but u beat me up and try to act [like] it never happen !!!!! U put hand on me I swear on god on my kids. But I'm supposed to be quiet because you're a Kardashian ... the light will come to the light."

What's more, a source previously told Radar Online, "[Blac Chyna] has evidence of him partying around [Dream], calling [Blac Chyna] names and grappling her when they've gotten into fights. Chyna's got the proof! She doesn't think Rob can ever get his s**t together. She has told him he cannot be alone with the baby. She doesn't trust him."
