That was normal!
I imply, the shit that we’ve all gone via, you guys can do something you want and it is Ok and I’m going to accept it all, and I’m going to do the same thing for [Rob], so quit judging me!” Yes, the latest storm Mama Kris is weathering has been created by her son, Rob, and Blac Chyna.
