Kardashian and Blac Chyna's romance reportedly caused controversy within his family, but a new report on the couple revealed that those reports may not be entirely true.

"Everything about him has changed," a friend of Rob's told Us Weekly. "She's been so good for him. He says he can't believe a girl this hot is into him."

For the first time in months, Kardashian has been seen in public — most recently showing his support for Chyna during a sexy beach photo shoot for 138 Water — and it looks as though this new relationship may be just what Kardashian needed.

"He's changed so much, that's why he was able to talk to his mom," the source added. "They reconnected and had a long talk. I think Kris is so happy he's finally out of his shell, so if it took Blac Chyna to get him here, so be it."
