Rob Kardashian has had a tumultuous 2016, and now it looks as though he might be ending his year on yet another down note, as TMZ is reporting that the 29-year-old has been hospitalized after experiencing a medical emergency.
Rob's mother, Kris Jenner, and on-again, off-again fiancee, Blac Chyna, both rushed to the hospital late Wednesday night to visit an unidentified patient who is believed to be Rob.
There were initial concerns that Rob and Blac's daughter, Dream Kardashian, was in medical distress, but insiders now confirm that the infant is at home, being cared for by relatives.
Blac was accompanied only by Kris and her boyfriend, Corey Gamble, when she hurried to the emergency room around 10 pm last night, which seems to confirm that it's Rob who's been hospitalized.
Sources say Rob and Blac are broken up at the moment, but they remain bonded by their daughter.
Blac gave birth to Dream just six weeks ago, and her relationship with Rob has struggled mightily ever since.
Just days after Dream entered the world, it was reported that Rob and Blac were living in separate homes, but were not officially broken up.
Shortly thereafter, multiple sources indicated that Rob and Blac had finally called it quits, after she got drunk and attacked him during an argument at his house.
It's unclear at this time if the stress of his personal life played a factor in Rob's hospitalization.
Last year, Rob was diagnosed with diabetes, and he's struggled with a number of health issues recently, including obesity and substance abuse.
When they first got together, Blac vowed to help Rob lose weight and adopt a healthier lifestyle.
At first, she seemed to be a positive influence, helping Rob shed 20 pounds in their first months as a couple.
Eventually, however, Blac became openly frustrated with the round-the-clock effort of keeping Rob in shape, and as her attention shifted to her pregnancy and then her baby, he began to fall back into many of his old habits.
At this time, no one in the Kardashian family has offered a statement with regard to Rob's condition.
We will have further updates on this story as more information becomes available.
