Rob Kardashian 'Can No Longer Afford' Paying Blac Chyna $20K Monthly in Child Support: Report
Kardashian claims he “can no longer afford” his $20,000 per month payments and is asking for a modification. He also claims that his volatile relationshipwith Chyna and the domestic violence restraining order she filed last year has damaged his career and is keeping him from earning money.
According to the outlet, Kardashian claims he stopped participating in Keeping Up with the Kardashians after his relationship with Chyna turned sour.
“I have not participated in the filming of any episodes since this summer when [Chyna] filed a request for a restraining order against me,” he says in the declaration, according to The Blast. “Her request was widely publicized and I was scrutinized by the media.”
He continues, “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.”
The Blast reports that he previously earned a minimum $1 million salary from the show, but in 2018 he was only paid $50,000 per each episode he actually appeared in. He is allegedly not contractually obligated to appear in show.
He reportedly says in the documents that his monthly income has dwindled from nearly $100,000 a month to less than $10,000 since their split.
Meanwhile, Kardashian claims Chyna's career only benefited from the media attention surrounding their relationship and that her net worth has risen. Based on financial records, Chyna is allegedly worth over $1.4 million.
“She has appeared in the press and on social media to discuss both cases at every opportunity,” he says in his declaration.
He claims Chyna's monthly income is nearly $60,000 per month.
Kardashian is now asking that Chyna pay him support. His lawyers estimate he should collect $2,864 for his 50/50 custody of Dream.
Chyna objected to Kardashian's request to modify child support and accused him of “manipulating” his financial situation, according to The Blast.
All child support obligations have been suspended while the stars work toward an agreement. Both sides have been asked to hand over several financial documents.
The two are reportedly scheduled to meet with a judge in December.
Kardashian's filing comes after Chyna blasted him over Father's Day in June, accusing him and rapper Tyga (the father of her 6-year-old son King Cairo) of failing to pay child support.
Kardashian and Chyna went public with their relationship in January 2016 and initially raised eyebrows due to Chyna's complicated history with his family: her ex Tyga dated his sister Kylie Jenner for years, and she is also best friends with Amber Rose, an ex of Kanye West, who is now married to Rob's sister Kim Kardashian West. They got engaged in April 2016 and welcomed Dream that November but split for good in February 2017 — and have had a contentious relationship ever since, sparring over custody and accusing each other of abuse.
Dream turned 2 on Saturday, and the Kardashians flooded social media with cute photos and sweet messages.
“You have brought such joy into our lives and I love you so dearly… what a special blessing you are my precious girl.. I LOVE YOU,” grandma Kris Jenner wrote on Instagram.
Chyna also celebrated her daughter's special day with an Instagram post, writing, ” “I wish you the most fulfilling experiences on your journey, blessings that overflows on your hands and the courage to pursue your ‘Dreams.'”
