News of Kardashian’s relationship comes a day after he penned a heartwarming tribute to his ex-fiancée on Instagram, in which he referred to Chyna as “the woman I love.”
“On my first episode of Rob’s Random Cornball Thoughts is This young lady who grew up to be the woman I love and the mother of my child,” Kardashian wrote about the mother of his child. “She is beautiful and gave me my first child. @blacchyna.”
But after a year of ups and downs, including screaming matches, therapy sessions and even a paternity test, which were documented on their E! reality show Rob & Chyna, and a fight that nearly ended their engagement right before Christmas, their romance came to an end in February.
“Chyna is super fed up with Rob and thinks he is way too emotional and depressed. She thinks he has terrible issues,” a source, who knows both Chyna and Kardashian, previously told PEOPLE about the exes. “He is always battling his own insecurities and is unstable. It’s a major turn-off to her, and she thinks it’s incredibly unhealthy for the baby and their family.”
A rep for James would not confirm or deny if she is dating Kardashian.
