For a while there, it looked like Rob Kardashian was on the verge of a comeback.
After months spent in hiding, indulging in substance abuse and compulsive overeating, Rob executed an impressive turnaround, landing himself a fiancee, a daughter, and a reality show in the process.
With the help of Blac Chyna Rob lost weight, rebuilt his business, and re-entered society.
Unfortunately, lasting change takes time, and looking back, we should’ve known Rob’s redemption would be short-lived, if only because it happened so quickly.
These days, Rob and Blac have broken up, and they’re said to be locked in an ugly custody battle over 4-month-old Dream Kardashian.
Not surprisingly, their reality series, Rob & Chyna has been canceled, because it’s hard to film a show about two people who refuse to be in the same room together.
Perhaps most troublingly, Rob’s mother froze his checking accounts after being notified that he had been spending money at an alarming rate.
Some sources close to the family took his excessive spending as a sign that Rob is back on drugs.
Others believe he’s merely funneling cash to Blac without his mother’s knowledge.
Either way, the situation seems to have raised an important question among fans:
Just how much money is Rob worth these days, anyway?
At the end of 2016, Rob’s net worth was estimated at around $6 million.
Of course, at the time, he had recently wrapped filming on the first (and only) season of Rob & Chyna, and his Arthur George collection of novelty socks was once again selling after years of lying dormant.
(For a long time the Rob’s business’ website was completely blank.)
Unfortunately, as far as future income goes, Rob’s prospects are looking pretty bleak.
Obviously his show is a thing of the past, sock sales are rumored to have slumped, and insiders say he’s back on the outs with several members of his family and thus, won’t be participating in much Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 13.
(Yes, KUWTK has really been on the air that long.)
All of this comes at a time when Rob will likely soon be shelling out major bucks for child support.
Blac Chyna is well-off, but her net worth is estimated to be less than half of Rob’s, and her career path is looking a treacherous, as well.
Sounds like now would be a good time for Rob to make nice with his more cash-savvy mother and sisters.
