Poor Rob Kardashian. The former ‘KUWTK’ star may have lost 40 pounds, thanks to working out with Blac Chyna, but if he doesn’t want to get fit for himself, then she may ‘eventually suffer from burnout and resentment’ and break his heart, an expert tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.

As evidenced by his recent weight loss, it’s clear that Blac Chyna, 27, has been a positive influence on Rob Kardashian, 28, since they started dating, but that could also be the very reason they end up breaking up in the not too distant future, a psychologist tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Find out why.
“Most people want to be in a relationship that is reciprocal, sooner or later. If Blac Chyna’s role is that of the caretaker, she may eventually suffer from burnout and resentment. She can most certainly help lift Rob’s spirits and help him get out of his depression, but only temporarily. Rob has to want to help himself,” Los Angeles therapist Elana Harriman, MSW, of Playa Vista Wellness tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Blac Chyna may enjoy the role of caretaker because it makes a person feel wanted and desired. Being the person who is constantly helping their partner gives that person a sense of importance and the upper hand. The relationship may give Blac Chyna the feeling of being needed above everyone else, also known as the ‘rescue fantasy.'”
Unfortunately, Blac’s past also serves as a problem for her relationship with Rob.
“Based on Blac Chyna’s recent arrest, it sounds as though she has not fully developed healthy coping skills. As a result, she can’t provide a good example for Rob, who already has questionable coping mechanisms. If Rob already uses food to self medicate, he could turn to the substances that Blac uses to self medicate, i.e. ecstasy. To help conquer his depression, Rob needs ongoing professional help to help him learn how to cope with his feelings in a healthy and productive way. A professional can help Rob emerge back into society and form healthy relationships with supportive people,” Elana adds.
