Pablo problems! Kanye West reacted to the news of his brother-in-law Rob Kardashian‘s surprise engagement to Blac Chyna on Friday, April 8, and had some really sweet things to say about his wife Kim Kardashian‘s younger brother.
The “Famous” rapper, 38, touched down in LAX after a fun-filled week in Vail, Colorado, with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family, and was setting off for another trip to the Philippines. West was in a great mood as he walked through the check-in area of his flight, and was asked whether he would be attending “Blac Chyna’s wedding.”
West replied: “You know what? I haven’t been invited.”
The dad of North, 2, and Saint, 4 months, was then asked whether the family was supporting the union. “You know, Rob is my brother. I love Rob,” he said, clapping his hands. “I just roll with it. I love Rob, that’s all I can say. I love Rob.”
Us Weekly exclusively revealed this week that while the family members have privately reached out to Rob to congratulate him on his engagement, there’s a reason why they haven’t publicly acknowledged the proposal on social media. A source told Us that family matriarch Kris Jenner was less than enthused about Rob’s making such a big life decision after less than three months of dating the makeup artist, who shares a young son with Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend, Tyga.
“Kris is not happy,” the insider told Us. “Dating Chyna is one thing, but marrying her is another.”
During the family’s ski trip, they deliberated over how to handle the engagement news in public. “The whole family is discussing it and is angry, but they are talking to come up with a unified front for how to address it,” the same source told Us. “It’s a huge mistake to them.”

Another source, however, had a slightly more optimistic perspective. “Obviously the family has some concern due to how fast it happened,” the insider explained. “But Rob has never been better, has never been more involved.”
News of the Arthur George sock designer’s engagement to Blac Chyna (real name: Angela White) broke this past Monday, April 4. He proposed with a 7-carat ring designed by longtime friend Ben Baller.
