Rob Kardashian has moved out of the public eye since gaining weight and sinking into a depression. His family members have tried to be by his side, but have had difficult. Currently, Rob is living with sister Khloe Kardashian again and she says that he still gets moody, but right now he’s doing well. Rob was also in the news for calling his sister Kim a bitch on Instagram and comparing her to the villain in Gone Girl. On this season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the family tries to get Rob to go to rehab and it stirs up a lot of emotion among the girls, particularly Mom Kris Jenner and sister Khloe. Kim reveals that she’s tried to reach out to Rob several times and he won’t respond. Kris wants to seek professional help, fearing her son’s life is at stake. At first, the girls decide not to include Khloe because of how protective she is of her brother. It’s also revealed that Rob has missed Kim’s wedding and the holidays because of him being depressed about his weight. Kim says that she’s very tough on him while others enable him a bit. When Khloe does get involved, Rob still refuses to participate in getting help and makes Khloe cry.
Since the episode was shot, Rob has lost over 13 pounds and Khloe recently told E! News:
Rob definitely has his ups and downs, and he’s been struggling for the past year and a half, maybe two years, which I think we’ve all had those times in our life. For the last week, he’s been doing better, but I want Rob to do consistently forever. So right now I’m really proud of him. He’s been working out a little and trying to get his groove back. And he acknowledges it! He’s aware that he’s very introverted and of course not the way he used to be. I think being aware is probably the best thing … Some days are great and some days he’s in his mood. Right now he’s good, though!
