Rob Kardashian is about to get a fat paycheck.
But only if he stops being so gosh darn fat.
Hey, this is not our assessment of the often-maligned reality star. We're just paraphrasing his mother.
Indeed, sources tell Radar Online that Rob is set to return to Keeping Up with the Kardashians after effectively not appearing at all on the prior two seasons of this E! reality show.
But there's a unique catch to the arrangement.
“Kris is bribing her son with millions of dollars to lose weight,” a source close to the 63-year-old matriarch tells the aforementioned celebrity gossip site.
It's been well-documented in the past that Rob has struggled to maintain a healthy weight -- and also that his family members have grown embarrassed by his ballooning figure.
Rob himself has also been embarrassed, which partly explains his absence from the series of late.
"[Jenner] told [Rob] that she will give him a half a million dollar increase for every ten pounds he loses," Radar claims, explaining of this unique situation:
"He has been working out non-stop and she is so proud of him because she really wants him to come back strong."
Rob's weight loss journey will provide Keeping Up with the Kardashians with a fresh storyline, of course, as will the shocking fact that someone out there apparently wants to sleep with him.
He's reportedly been getting hot and heavy with VH1 personality Alexis Skyy.
We have no idea what she sees in him, either, we know.
But Rob's mom is psyched that her son is happy; and, again, that the show may have a new storyline on which to focus.
“Kris is thrilled that Rob is getting back out there and dating again. All she wants is for Rob to happy,” Radar writes, ignoring the fact that all Kris really wants is for her kids to make her money.
The insider does acknowledge this aspect of Jenner, adding:
“Needless to say, Kris would love it if the two of them are together when he starts filming because that would mean she could use their romance for ratings.”
We don't yet know when Keeping Up with the Kardashians will retuen for another season.
But you better believe Kim's plans to add a fourth child will be featured prominently on upcoming episodes, along with the rumor that Khloe wants to get pregnant again... by Tristan Thompson.
We know, right? SIGH.
Rob, meanwhile, is involved in a legal battle with Blac Chyna.
In court documents that have been made public, Kardashian wants his estranged baby mama pay him over $17,000 after he claimed she did “significant damage” to his property after “violently attacking” him while the exes were living at with Kylie Jenner in 2017.
There's no end in sight to their back-and-forth.
