In 2012, Kardashian participated in Fox's dating game show The Choice. That same year, he launched his sock line titled Arthur George.

The reality series Rob & Chyna premiered 11 September 2016. Its follows Kardashian's relationship with model Blac Chyna as they prepare to welcome their first child. Six hour-long episodes were ordered, excluding a television special featuring the birth of Kardashian and Chyna's newborn. It was later renewed for a second season.

Personal Life[]

Kardashian dated actress Adrienne Bailon from 2007 until 2009. Their relationship was documented on the family reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. After months of speculation, in October 2012, Kardashian confirmed through his Twitter account that he and singer Rita Ora were dating. In December 2012, it was revealed that their relationship had ended.

In December 2015, it was reported that Kardashian was hospitalized after falling ill and diagnosed with diabetes.

In January 2016, Kardashian began dating model Blac Chyna. On 5 April 2016, Kardashian and Chyna announced their engagement via Instagram after three months of dating. In May 2016, it was reported that the couple were expecting their first child together. In September 2016, they confirmed that they were having a girl. Their daughter, Dream Renée Kardashian, was born 10 November 2016. On 17 December 2016, the couple announced their split on social media after Chyna's Instagram account was hacked. Kardashian told his Snapchat followers that his fiancee left him, moved out of their home and took their one-month-old daughter with her. However, the couple reconciled as the split was revealed to be done in the "heat of the moment." In December 2016, Kardashian announced on his Instagram post that he and Chyna have split.

On 28 December 2016, Kardashian was hospitalized again for diabetes. However, he left the hospital the next day.
