In case his recent request to decrease child support payments didn’t get the message across, Rob Kardashian is low on funds. In the matter of his flailing sock company, however, his mom Kris Jenner is helping him out. Or forcing him to sell the business to her, depending how you look at it.


The Blast obtained documents on Wednesday indicating that Rob was forced to sell half his sock brand Arthur George to Jenner. He says in the document, ‘When the business was struggling, my other infused it with capital to keep it afloat and from her infusion gained a 50 percent share in the company.” Something about this word “infusion” sits uneasy with me; perhaps its association with blood.

Rob went on, “Previously, the line’s success was in large part due to my regular posting and general promotion on social media. Angela’s [aka Blac Chyna’s] 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.”

A further cry for help reads, “My income now is insufficient to pay for my expenses. As of Jan. 17, 2018, I am short nearly $300,000 which my accountant projects I will need to pay for my 2107 tax liabilities. I no longer own a home. I now live in my mother’s home.”

I don’t wish to untangle the Kardashian’s finances or Rob’s relationship with Blac Chyna. I’ll just say saving money doesn’t strike me as a Kardashian requirement or worry. They have so much.

I can’t tell if Zayn Malik is hyper aware of the rumor that Taylor Swift avoided the paparazzi by allowing herself to be transported in a suitcase, or if he’s unaware of not just the rumor but its deep oddness. In any case, he told Vogue this week of Swift:

“She was traveling around in a suitcase,” he says, eyes agog, of his pal Taylor Swift’s ability to avoid the paparazzi.”

Maybe Rob shouldn't have posted all that revenge porn type shit on Instagram? Also, why didn't the sock brand have it's own dedicated social media channels?
