Rob Kardashian admits his relationship with Blac Chyna was “very, very complicated” in the beginning.
The 29-year-old reality star began romancing the make-up artist – who has a three-year-old son, King Cairo, with his half-sister Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend Tyga – at the beginning of the year and was reluctant to discuss his new-found happiness with the rest of his family because of the awkward circumstances.
He said: “I couldn’t really feel comfortable about talking to any of my family members obviously about the situation.
“It was very, very complicated. But my happiness outweighed everything honestly at that point in my life.”
But after having one-on-one chats with his family, Rob – who is expecting his first child with Chyna – insists all is well between them.
Speaking on radio show ‘On Air With Ryan Seacrest’, he said: “There’s no beef between anybody. Everything’s positive.”
And the sock designer can’t understand why people think his relationship with Chyna is a way of annoying his family.
He said: “Never in a million years would I have a child out of spite.”
Before finding love with Chyna – who he proposed to in April – Rob had retreated from the spotlight as he battled depression and weight gain and claims he needed the 28-year-old beauty to help him through his “rough time”.
He admitted: “Sometimes your family can’t get you out of the worst place that I was in.
“I needed an outsider to help me. I couldn’t do it all myself.
“Chyna helped me through my rough time. I was uncomfortable in my skin, just trying to get over that uncomfortable feeling. She really helped me get past that [feeling of] being judged.”
The couple have set a date for their wedding, but are focusing on their new baby first.
Rob said: “First, have a healthy baby, then hopefully a beautiful wedding. But obviously the baby comes first.”
