“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kris Jenner responded to son Rob’s new girlfriend, Blac Chyna. The family has a convoluted history with the model, so Jenner’s response was a little bizarre. Is she switching allegiance from daughter Kylie to Rob?
"I haven't really seen her that much and I don't know her as well as everyone else, but she seems like a really nice girl," Jenner, 60, said on "The Kyle and Jackie O Show" on Australian radio station KIIS-FM 1065 Wednesday. "But you know, he's been very, very happy lately and I think he's in a really good place. I don't know too much about their relationship."
Even though Kris didn’t have much to say about Blac, it was an indirect hit at 18-year-old Kylie when she said Blac seemed like “a really nice girl.” Here’s a quick breakdown of the Kardashian family’s weird history with the model. She used to be best friends with Kim Kardashian West and shares a son, King Cairo, 3, with rapper Tyga. But her friendship with Kardashian West dissolved when Tyga dated Kylie. Bitter over that, Blac took numerous jabs at the teenager on social media. Then things got weird when Blac started to date Rob Kardashian, the black sheep of the family.
But the relationship is apparently a good thing for the former sock designer. "He feels, you know, much better about himself," Jenner said. "He's trying to just get healthy and get in shape. He's been working on a few projects.... He’s "doing really, really well."
It’s unclear how “nice” Blac really is since she didn’t attend Rob’s 29 birthday bash over the weekend. She wasn’t the only one who wasn’t in attendance, though. Khloé Kardashian couldn’t make the party since she was sick and Caitlyn Jenner didn’t appear either. The Kardashian matriarch wasn’t sure why.

"I don't even know where Caitlyn was, to be honest," Jenner said about her ex, formerly known as Bruce. "She could've been out of town, which is usually the case. The kids were making calls and seeing, you know, who could come because we actually did it last-minute... You know, it takes a village to get the whole family together."
The Kardashian-Jenner clan is currently filming Season 12 of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
