Rob Kardashian deletes his Instagram & Twitter, friends ‘express serious concern’

Rob Kardashian

Now we rejoin the winter of Rob Kardashian’s discontent. The last time I talked about Rob, he had (somewhat hilariously) bailed on the Kimye wedding. There were tons of theories about why Rob fled Paris before his sister’s wedding. Most of the guesses involved Rob feeling uncomfortable about his weight gain and Kim giving him a hard time for messing up her wedding photos. Some of you wondered whether Rob’s sudden flight was planned by Kris Jenner as part of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

I don’t think Rob’s weight gain is something that he’s doing on purpose for his family’s show. Nobody gains that much weight (some sources say it’s over 100 pounds) for fun or money. Rob is excruciatingly aware of his weight gain. He knows that people are making fun of him. The really sad part is that I just checked Rob’s latest Tweets, and the first reply to one of them was, “Lose weight, fattie.

No wonder Rob is deleting his social media presence. Since he returned from Paris, Rob has deleted his entire Instagram cache of photos. He’s also deleted all of his tweets except for a few religious quotes from Memorial Day:

Rob did take the time to tweet birthday wishes to Lord Scott Disick — because the downtrodden Kardashian men must stick together. Here are Rob and Scott enjoying what looks like a Maldives vacation years ago:

People has spoken to a Klan source that says Rob’s friends are worried about him: “Friends at the wedding expressed serious concern for him. When I saw him, it looked like something was very wrong. I’m not sure [it's] solely related to weight gain. His friends and family are rooting for him.

This is truly weird — not only because Rob deleted his tweets. Rob did that before after he was called out for bashing ex-girlfriend Rita Ora in late 2012. This time it seems different because Rob is ignoring his whole family on Twitter. He even deleted his prior supportive tweets to Khloe. I really think that Rob feels alienated from his family. There’s no time like the present to make a clean break.

    I actually feel bad for the guy not that he seems all that great but I think Kim has treated him like crap due to her enormous ego and will edit her show to make him look like a jerk. He seems like he genuinely just wants his family to have his back and their hearts have been filled with Botox.

    • Rice says:

      I’ve never seen the show so the only stuff I know about him is through sites like this. But I actually feel sorry for him. I mean, everyone else in the family, except maybe Kourtney, brings profit and fame to PMK. Selling/designing socks is not enough for the PMK. If he has a genuine problem, then I hope he gets help.

      • Becky says:

        He does have a genuine problem, and he has gotten help. There was also an episode on the show in which he tried to buy his own house and couldn’t afford to. He was super disappointed (on the show). He said he felt like a failure. I felt a little bad when I saw the headline about Kendall buying a condo today.

      • jaye says:

        @Becky…that’s really sad and that’s probably why he’s gained so much weight. He’s self medicating, but with food. As someone who has been there, I feel very sorry for him.

    • Nicolette says:

      Their hearts have been filled with dollar signs and raging narcissism. No room for the Botox.

    • Audrey says:

      The Kardashian ladies seem to know how to come together to beat down on men :/

    • HH says:

      Yeah I think they edit the show to make him look like a jerk. That’s the same treatment Kris Humphries (although neither of them had sparkling personalities to begin with).

    • Davy says:

      I’ve never seen the show but usually base my impressions on instinct anyway.

      I can’t imagine growing up in this family. They were all obviously raised to value their appearance and status above all else. In that sense, I do have some compassion even for the girls. Kim being very naturally beautiful must have been praised for that exclusively growing up, learning that her importance and value was derived from her looks – I’ve never heard another pregnant woman complain so much about their looks or weight gain, most seem to be fairly joyous about the pending birth of their child – with Kim it seemed she was in a panic worried her looks and livelihood would vanish. I remember reading something where Khloe spoke of hearing her mother telling friends that she needed a nose job at a very young age – growing up being the “odd one out” of her other two petite sisters, although beautiful herself obviously internalizing that she wasn’t as valued or not as attractive – her recent surgeries reflect that deep insecurity that she is perceived as the least beautiful of all the sisters, in fact she got surgeries to make herself appear more like them.

      Can you imagine being Rob growing up around this group of deeply insecure, narcissistic women whose entire value system is skewed? I will say, all the sisters are incredibly beautiful (though waning with all the tweaks and surgeries, they are losing their naturally beautiful quality), and finding 5 stunning sisters like this has given them a brand that’s easy to sell and make money from. My best friend is a former model and I must admit, during my hardest money struggles it was sort of frustrating to see her make SO much money for just sitting there and being pretty a couple times a month. I dealt with my own anger at this, but in a lesser evolved state, it was hard to see someone so well paid for the looks she did nothing to earn while I sat on two degrees and experience and struggled to find placement or make a decent living. I can sympathize with him on this, he sees even his younger sisters making way more bank than him, and he hasn’t been brought up to seek education and gainful employment and doesn’t have the self esteem to earn – it must seem impossible for him because the only way he was taught to earn is through the fame whore stroll. Granted, a “real” job and education isn’t gonna pay him shit in comparison, so I don’t blame him for taking the “sock” opportunities that likely net him more than the average doctor’s salary.

      It’s likely my own experiences being projected, but I really do believe this story and feel for him. I went through serious depression and anxiety and you simply do not have the physical or mental resources to help yourself from this place. It is not as easy as some of you suggest, because you’re approaching it from a rational mentally well perspective. There are a lot of recent studies linking depression and anxiety to gut health (considering your gut produces significantly more serotonin than your brain) so whatever is happening with his diet and weight gain is contributing, and anti depressants are a giant fucking NO for treating this, if he is taking them I guarantee it’s making them worse.

      He needs someone to control his diet, eat clean and get caught up on leading edge research on the best diet for gut health. Once his body starts to regulate his neurotransmitters and blood sugar etc he will automatically start to feel better and will find the motivation to exercise and find health. He needs to get far away from this family as obviously they are triggering the issues for him, from a clean bill of mental and physical health he will be better equipped to handle their nonsense.

      Can you imagine struggling with this and having TONS of people writing about you online saying heinous and insensitive things? That would have made me in my worst state spiral off the deep end. Be compassionate.

      • erin says:

        well-said Davy. I think the Kardashians are a valuable lesson in the importance of NOT teaching your children to value or obsess over their appearance above anything else. Even if he is a jerk, no one deserves to get made fun of or ridiculed for their appearance, because it is superficial and has nothing to do with the PERSON at heart. We’re all stuck with a certain body, but it doesn’t have to define us. It makes me so sad that we continue to glorify people who value appearance above everything else so highly in the media and everywhere else.

      • FLORC says:

        And Kris is the ultimate evil here. I can’t fault any of the Kardashian/Jenner children. Kris has been manipulating them all along. They’ve all at some point said it. Rob probably feels the abuse from his mother the most. All image all the time. I wouldn’t doubt he’s sinking into major depression.

        And sorry if you said it and I missed it, but Rob’s father is gone. Yes he had a father figure and step brothers, but that doesn’t replace the emptiness of a son not being able to turn to his father.

      • jaye says:

        TMZ reported that the family issued a statement that Rob felt very self conscious about his weight and didn’t want to appear in any of the family pics. He then went home because he felt uncomfortable. The report also said they love Rob and are supportive of him. I know it’s more than likely that it’s spin, but there it is.

        Also, one of the reporters stated that he talked to Gunnar Peterson and Rob is back to working with him again. The reporter asked Gunnar what would it take for Rob to lose the weight and Gunnar said that Rob needs someone to be with him at all times to make sure he was eating the right foods. He even said that HE wanted to live with Rob in order to provide him with the help he needs.

    • Mingy says:

      Really interesting points, Davy. I wonder if good quality probiotics would help.

    • nikko says:

      I don’t feel sorry for him. He has enough money to assist w/ him losing weight; be it surgery, trainer/ing, support, therapy. He likes to feel sorry for himself (he’s the youngest and they probably spoiled him). He doesn’t have the get go like his sisters, so he’s always mad at all or one of them. Kim knew how fat he was, if she didn’t want him there she would of told him to stay home from the beginning. He just didn’t want any pics taken of him and he would look foolish if he was at the wedding and not participate in family photos. Some people wish they have what he has – family, money and love. Grow up and quit whinning!

      • FUTMZ says:

        …would “of”? Duuuuhhhh….

      • jaye says:

        It doesn’t matter how much money the man has. If his overeating stems from some internalized emotional turmoil he more than likely is eating to stuff his pain. I agree that he probably needs therapy. but you don’t become an emotionally damaged person over night, and you don’t develop the tools to manage those feelings and emotions over night either. I have compassion for the guy. From the few episodes I have seen of KUWTK, his mother is very distant and she and his sisters are sometimes downright awful to him.

  2. LadyMTL says:

    IF this isn’t just an overblown stunt for TV (not the weight gain per se but this whole “bailing on the wedding” drama) then I think the best thing that he can do is step back and go dark, so to speak. If he has issues and needs help then he needs to focus his energy on that and not on Twitter, Instagram and whatnot.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I agree. It’s a good first step.

    • Kiddo says:

      +2, “If”

    • kri says:

      +3, you guys. I am sure that the Evil Succubus controls the purse strings, but if I was Rob, I would be sitting down with a ghostwriter for my tell-all. Maybe get out of LA, find some normal non-Z-list friends, and only look at those Gorgon’s reflections in a shield.

    • mayamae says:

      I find the sudden bible references concerning. Hopefully, he’s surrounded by people who are watchful of suicidal symptoms and care enough to look for them.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I don’t know him so I have no idea if he is religious. He is half-Armenian and they are usually very strong in their faith, if he was influenced by his father’s family, his faith is perfectly understandable, however if this a sudden thing, I agree it should be viewed as a flag. Religious fixation can sometimes occur when people are having certain problems. If can be a precursor to certain behavior if the belief that you are receiving divine instruction becomes fixed.

  3. Sisi says:

    That statements only purpose is just to make Lucifer’s people at the wedding sound more sympathetic, right?

  4. Dani2 says:

    I just feel so sorry for him, and I don’t think this is all just for an upcoming Kardashian tv special, I think he could actually be going through a lot right now.

    • Erinn says:

      I agree. I really really think this one is legit. Call me crazy, but I don’t believe he’s staging any of this. I had mentioned on another post last week, I had accidentally watched about ten minutes of an episode while channel surfing, and he just seemed pitiful. Genuinely pitiful. He seems like he just wants some kind of acceptance, or praise, and I really really doubt that he got much of that growing up. Yes he’s rich, yes he’s got more opportunity than most people, but mental illness doesn’t discriminate, and it’s looking more and more like he might be dealing with depression. And I can empathize with that.

    • Dani says:

      I agree. In a bunch of the episodes (even old ones) they’re always ganging up on him and he seems to truly be hurt. He needs to run.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      @Dani2-Yeah you and I have been on the same page about this story.

      I too feel sorry for him and I don’t believe that it’s staged. My bestie suffers from depression and I’ve seen first-hand the toll it takes. It really does have a devastating impact on one’s life. Also, it can take years to get the right combination of medication and therapy to get a depressed person to the point where they can function in society.

      It’s a long road that involves a lot of trial-and-error with various prescription medications as well as some incredibly low points that can last for weeks-to-months.

      What’s sad to me is the complete lack of compassion and the dismissive attitude that people seem to take when it comes to people who suffer from depression.

      • Kiddo says:

        OKitt, I don’t think the dismissiveness is in re to depression, but to the Ks instead. They manufacture drama and plotlines, so it is difficult to discern when it diverges into legitimate reality, instead of ‘reality’.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Regardless of the reason for dismissing, it’s still dismissing nonetheless.

        I doubt Rob Kardashian is going to go to such great lengths to get television ratings for a TV show which he has said repeatedly that he doesn’t care about.
        Plus does he really have that many friends who would go out of their way to fabricate lies just to sell a story? …because there are a lot of people surrounding him who are saying something is wrong.

        There comes a point where I think it’s ok to put the cynicism on the back-burner and allow yourself to believe that someone might actually have a problem, instead of brushing off the rumors because you want to believe everything this family does is part of some grand scheme.

      • Kiddo says:

        I gotta say, I’m not really invested in it, so we’ll go with what you said.

      • Jackie says:

        @TheOriginalKitten…I feel sorry for him too, and don’t believe it’s all staged. He really does seem to be suffering from depression. Of course, I’m no doctor to be diagnosing him, but so many signs are there. As far as his weight gain, I know he gets a lot of flack about it. But it seems like he is at least trying to lose weight. He’s been seen on the show with his trainer and has talked about it. Some people when they are depressed don’t feel like eating, and some overeat. Plus, many anti-depressants cause weight gain. So that could be part of what’s causing him to gain weight too (assuming he is on any anti-depressants).

        Your bestie is really lucky to have you! As someone who has struggled with major depression for over half my life, I know how rare it can be to have family/friends who are truly supportive and understanding. Like you say, it’s a hard road and people can be really dismissive about depression. It’s not as simple as thinking happy thoughts. And anti-depressants aren’t a happy pill, like some people think. With the right ones, it lets you feel “normal” and better able to live your life and handle what comes your way. Again, kudos to you for being so supportive of your bestie. :)

      • Lauren says:

        TOK your comment made me cry. I wish I had had someone like you when I was going through some of the darker times of my depression. I had a really bad mental breakdown in 2012 and it carried over in 2013. Only recently am I starting to recover through therapy and medications.

        You are so right that people can be so dismissive. I have had my father tell me all I need is to have the power to overcome. Mind over matter as he says. Or then he will be very ignorant and say things like ‘black people don’t suffer from depression.’ Just comments like that make me feel ashamed or alienated/ stigmatized by a lot of family and friends. My mother also just doesn’t get it. She tells me that I just must try to be happy. She doesn’t see that every day I am trying. But she acts like depression is just simple sadness etc.

        I have a sibling who was in and out of the mental illness ward for years. My fathers response was ‘go ahead and kill yourself. See if I care.’ It hurts when doctors/ society and friends are dismissive of mental illness but when it is family it is crushing. Family should be the one place where a person should feel like they can get help. I feel sorry for Rob regardless of how rich his family is. Wealth means nothing. You can have it and still lead an alienating and depressed life.

      • jaye says:

        Yes. People say “cheer up” or “stop whining” like you can control the way you feel when you are mentally ill. As someone who suffers from mental illness, it pisses me off.

    • Reece says:

      I think, whatever it is, it’s probably been brewing for a while and now it’s coming out.

  5. GiGi says:

    I’m worried for him, too! I’ve watched enough of their show to see that (whether factual or not) Rob feels like Kris has focused only on the girls (cash cows) and has pretty much left him to raise himself. He feels that Kris, as a manager, hasn’t sought out opportunities for him in the same way she has for his sisters.

    That kind of family sh!t can be hard to break out of, especially when you’ve tried to address your feelings and there’s now acknowledgement or change in behaviour by your family. I think he’s always felt like an outsider in that family – I would hope that they’re worried enough about him to really get to the heart of what is going on with him.

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      Totally agree GiGi! I’m not a big Rob fan by any means, he kinda seems like an entitled brat but I do feel for the guy right now. It can’t be easy to feel like you don’t fit in with your own family. I hope that he gets some help and that he realizes that 99.9% of the world wouldn’t fit in with that family. Thats nothing to be ashamed of.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      No one in that family cares about anyone but themselves, Rob included. His mother has failed him as far more than a manager.

  6. Damaris says:

    So much for “Khloe has Rob’s back”. It’s nice to know she’s just as conceited and shallow as everyone else in her family.

  7. BeckyR says:

    This overgrown kid has every advantage in the world and appears to do nothing. Sock designer, my ass. What a joke. I have no sympathy whatsoever. He needs to quit feeling sorry for himself and GET A REAL LIFE.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Maybe that’s what he’s trying to do?

      • Erinn says:

        +1000

      • Sighs says:

        Yep

      • littlestar says:

        I hope so. I wish he would realize reality fame is obviously not for him and to go back to school and get his law degree or an MBA. I think he would find real pride in himself if he did that. He probably has this idea that if his sisters can make so much money off of their reality TV success, he should be able to do the same, and thinks he is a failure because he cannot. He needs to distance himself from his terrible mother and seek out a new path in life separate from fame and reality TV.

        Edit: Thinking about it, I’m sure that once you have a taste of “fame”, it’s probably very hard to let it go. But Rob needs to do that.

    • Latisse says:

      I kind of agree. I mean I don’t get it: He has no real job and no real responsibilities so if the weight gain bothers him so much why not just go to a weight loss/ boot camp. He can certainly afford it and I am sure there are some out there that cater specifically to extremely high net worth clientele, so why all the drama and boo-hooing. He has every resource he needs at hand to alleviate his problems.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Simply put, I think people saying “why doesn’t he just get up and do something about it?” don’t understand the crippling effect of depression.

      • mimif says:

        You’re totally right. I think Kiddzilla does have a point upthread but at the end of the day, depression does not discriminate. Depression Lies.
        *feel like an asshole for sh-tting on him downthread so thanks for the wake up Kitten. (For reals. But I’m still throwing vodka at you.)

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        You’re wanton vodka-throwing is sending me into a state of depression.
        It better be the cheap stuff that you’re wasting….

      • Latisse says:

        Fine. He’s depressed? So get help. Go to a therapist. Or is he absolved of that responsibility as well? I suffer from debilitating anxiety so guess what? I see a therapist twice a week and am on medication. Robert Kardashian can afford to see a therapist every day if he wanted to.

        I watched a couple episodes of Lamar/Khole and he didn’t seem like a very nice person even before the depression was externally noticeable. But that is beside the point. If he is depressed, he should get help. That is so much more than other mentally ill people without the means can manage. So sorry not sorry. No sympathy from me.

        If he is getting help already, then good for him! I wish him all the best in his journey towards mental wellbeing.

      • Erinn says:

        Latisse, you don’t HAVE depression. By your own admission, you have anxiety issues. It’s a lot different.

        Yes, he can get help. It took me a shit ton of time to get help to. Your lack of sympathy is startling for someone who likely also had to deal with the stigma of mental illness. Not everyone is the same. Not everyone has the ability to just say “I’m going to do something about this” ESPECIALLY when it comes to depression.

  8. LaurieH says:

    Anyone who has dealt with weight issues can sympathize with him. His family is constantly patting themselves on the back for being “supportive”, but are they really? When you fly out to a wedding in which so much emphasis (in fact, all of the emphasis) is being placed on beauty and deaigner clothes and posing, how do you supppose that make someone unhappy with their body feel? Rob lacks a father figure. His own father died, Bruce wasn’t much help, Scott is busy with 2 kids and Lamar is gone. All he has left are 5 vacuous sisters and a mother endlessly angling to milk her cash cows. Meanwhile, Rob has socks. To me, it’s sad and I think the kid is at his breaking point.

    • Diana says:

      +1

    • Wren says:

      True. I hate the comments of “he could just lose the weight if it bothered him so much!” That just screams of someone never having that struggle in their lives. It’s hard, even with infinite resources it’s still hard. It’s not something you can just decide to do and everything is fine and dandy from there on out.

      And going through any kind of meaningful personal struggle in that family? Ugh, I can’t even imagine. Being the Forgotten One cannot be easy no matter what.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I understand why you hate those comments but ultimately he needs to take the reins in his life. It’s like any other problem in life, denying it and running away from it, won’t solve it. He is very privileged and has no excuse for not getting help regardless of how difficult it is.

    • Chicagogurl says:

      Right? Anyone who has had serious weight gain will tell you it’s more emotional/mental. You have to want to try. You have to get your hope back. Depression can be a beast. It seems like he has dad issues he never got over and then pretty much forgotten about by most of his family. Couple all that with his lack of success vs. his sisters (which he has said makes him feel like crap) and the loss of his relationship with Rita and Lamar – it seems like even though he’s entitled, that he’s never learned to cope with loss. Sad.

    • Chem says:

      Two of the sisters arent exactly at ideal (healthwise) weights themselves. And by that I mean for their height, their ages, their gender, they are medically overweight. And didnt the other one also struggle with losing pregnancy weight?

      Having said that blaming family is pointless if you ask me. Whoevers fault it is, you still gotta rebuild. This is a good first step. Now he needs to vanish long enough to sought out his mental health issues.

    • elisa says:

      Exactly, LaurieH, struggling with weight issues, any kind of weight issues can be truly crippling without familial support, and it can run parallel to and cyclical to depression. It isn’t as easy as snapping out of it or being lazy and I’ve seen some of the truly vicious comments on other blogs/sites. Thankfully, not this site. It is a disorder, with a long and slow recovery, and support is key. I feel for him, truly feel for him. I was anorexic as a teen and depressive and found that my issues were rooted in control. Everything else in my life seemed out of control at that time, but weight, what I put in my body “seemed” within my control, even though it wasn’t really. I felt in control and out of control at the same time, if that makes sense. I’m not saying that Rob is the same or even similar, but given the nature of that family on the show, maybe it could be. Of course, self-esteem always plays a part too. It is never just one thing, or person, or situation that is the cause, and one never knows what goes on within a family. Still, it can’t be easy to struggle with weight and mental issues in that family with that mother.

      His comment about not believing in therapy is troubling. I hope that he realises that he needs help. He truly seems like he is in trouble and I hope that he finds support and peace – away from the spotlight.

  9. Dawn says:

    If this is true, well then good luck to Rob but with the Kardashian family there is always the IF. I don’t think that there isn’t any level low enough that this family will not stoop to for attention. Fat shaming Rob would be easy for this pack of under the knife women. Whatever it is I hope Rob can get some help for it but more I hope he can find the strength to distance himself completely from his sisters who have done nothing but trash up the Kardashian name. Maybe he should visit and talk to Bob’s late wife who helped put him through college. Whatever he needs if this is indeed true he will not find it with his mother or sisters or even Scott who loves the life they provide him. Nope he has to leave them all behind. Good luck dude.

    • Sassy says:

      He also has a large group of relatives in LA who are from his father’s side of the family. The “real” Kardashians. Most are educated and successful. Perhaps they would be able to help him.

  10. mimif says:

    How old is this dude and why do I have absolutely no sympathy for him whatsoever? I would assume he has access to mental health care so take advantage of it and get some help already. Or I don’t know, try volunteering at the soup kitchen and get some f-cking perspective.

  11. Tifygodess24 says:

    I can’t help but feel that one tweet was aimed at his family , especially Kim -they worship materialistic things and themselves. Not to mention the whole worshipping of Kanye who thinks he’s a god.
    Its horrible to say but I worry that if something happened to Rob ,his family would use it to gain more fame instead of actually mourn, I just feel at this point nothing is too low for them. I feel like Kris may be seeing dollar signs instead of helping her son. Sounds horrible I know but remember not all people on this earth are good and she’s already past questionable.

    • TG says:

      You aren’t wrong about the Kartrashian’s using Aron’s pain for their own gain. They use their father’s death all the time on their show. PMK went so far as to hire a Medium to tell the girls that Robert Kardashian was speaking to him from the grave and yelling them that it was not PMK’s whoring around that caused the divorce but was his own fault. I still can’t believe the girls allowed their mother to use their father’s memory in such a way to paint herself in a good light.

      Oh and that Tahitian vacation wasn’t that long ago. Kris Humphries was on that vacation along with his then girlfriend and now ex-wife KimME.

      • Mingy says:

        OMG WHAT! That is so sick! So what if the medium said that it was actually PMK’s whoring that caused them to breakup..Jeez, they never cease to amaze me!

      • TG says:

        @Mingy – I can’t respond directly to your comment so I will answer it in mine. Yes, one of the New York episodes, I think it was during the KimME and Kris Humphs marriage sham. Anyway the girls, I think KimME and Khourtney hired a Medium who was supposedly speaking to their father from beyond and he told them that their father was saying that the divorce was his fault and not PMK’s. This was also around the time when there were a lot of rumors that PMK cheated on their dad and so basically I think PMK cooked up this plot to paint herself in a better light. Of course she then went on to write a book telling the world that she did indeed have an affair(s), hinting strongly that Khloe might not really be a Khardashian. So yes, I could see PMK wanting to profit on the possible suicide of her son. As had been mentioned on other posts they once had a family therapy session and Rob walked off crying and Khloe was the only one to get her a$$ off the couch and go after him. PMK and her favorite child KimME sat their looking stone cold not moving. Then later KimME was crying not for Rob but for PMK and how no one gives her credit and everyone is mean to mommy dearest. Gross gross and gross.

    I think he really misses his father and now that Bruce is not around anymore he feels lost and powerless in dealing with a bunch of shallow and self-centered bitches.

    • Liberty says:

      + 1

    • someone says:

      Agreed, although I don’t think girly Bruce was much help either. I think Rob did better when he had men around he could hang with – like Lamar. Lamar might not have been a good influence (drugs, cheating, etc) but he was a MAN. Now all Rob has is women around him. Snippy catty women. Kanye doesn’t count because I doubt Kanye pays any attention to anyone but Kanye.

    • kimber says:

      Yup. Can you imagine being around all those crazy girls?!?

      It’s sad because sometimes in life you run into a guy obviously raised around only woman and it didnt turn out good for them bc they were told what to do all the time…..too coddled or just lonely but it’s sad.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I can’t imagine having to grow up and live in that family. All of the kids have body image issues, and their whole lives are for sale. He doesn’t seem to be the nicest person, but maybe it’s time to make a change and move on.

  14. Rhiley says:

    He probably needs more than his family’s half assed “support.” You do have to wonder, though, if they are they making Rob the new male story line now that there is no more Lamar and Kris. I have been a very overweight person in my life. When I was 10 I weighed 175 pounds and that is the first time I went to Weight Watchers. By the time I was 12 I was smoking and weighed that much again after getting down to around 150. Fortunately as an adult, I do not smoke, I watch what I eat but I don’t diet, and I truly love to exercise so I have been able to maintain a healthy 140 pounds for most of my adult life. Anyway, if Rob isn’t doing all this for a story line, he must really be depressed because he has every resource in the world to help him lose the weight: personal trainers, weight watchers/jenni craig would probably love to have him as a spokesperson, he can go to retreats and fancy outdoor vacations when he is feeling stressed. I hope he isn’t drinking and drugging and his family will truly help him get on the right track before he turns into a Brian Wilson.

  15. maxine7 says:

    I said it on an earlier post and will say it here. Even if his weight gain and leaving the wedding were a stunt you have to be fairly mentally unwell to do that. I think he is a sick guy both physically and mentally and I hope it doesn’t take his death to realize this is not a stunt and he needs help. Get help Rob. Quickly.

  16. Loopy says:

    Poor guy, i really feel he would of been a completely different man if Robert Senior was around during those pivotal years of a boy to a man.

    • Christin says:

      I agree. His dad seemed to be fairly decent. I know that may be questionable due to Kris and OJ, but he got away from Kris and was not as showy as OJ’s other friends and lawyers. During the trial, I thought he was subdued and wondered if he had his own doubts about his friend’s innocence.

      • Nicolette says:

        His facial expression when the verdict was read said quite a bit. Not so much a look of happiness or relief, but more like stunned and shocked.

      • Green Is Good says:

        It’s interesting to note after the trial, Robert had nothing to do with OJ ever again.

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Robert Kardashian pretty much said that he doubted his innocence in a TV interview with Barbara Walters. Barbara asked him what caused him to change his mind about OJ, and he said it was the blood evidence.

        There may have been other things, but that’s what I remember the best.

  17. kiki says:

    This is very sad. I hope Rob can get the help he seems to need to work through these issues.

    BTW, Bedhead, you might want to look up the meaning of “winter of our discontent”.

    • Bedhead says:

      I’ve read the Steinbeck novel & know the Shakespeare quote.

      • kiki says:

        “Winter of our discontent” refers to the ending of hardship and unhappiness, not the height of it.

        Not a big deal, just a pet peeve of mine.

  18. kimber says:

    His family sucks, and hopefully he can find true friends away from that social system of ugly on the inside.

  19. Char says:

    I commented on the last Rob post, but I do feel sorry for him. His Mom & Kim only act like they are concerned about him when other family members (mainly Khloe) start to worry about him, or if they think it makes them look bad because they haven’t been reacting to him (he had to leave the room crying before Kim or Kris even reacted to what he had been trying to talk to them about in the first place, which was basically that he didn’t feel like he was part of his own family & his mom only cared about his sisters). Kim is a flat out b*tch to him & I think Kris just ignores him for the most part, since he isn’t Kim. He cries almost every time he talks about his Dad, which is probably normal for alot of people who have lost someone they loved, but I think it may be more than that with Rob. I saw an episode where Brody Jenner was expressing genuine concern for Rob & while I don’t believe he flat out said Rob was depressed, he said that Rob has been really sad for a while & that he needs support & help.

  20. ~Z~ says:

    I do feel bad for him. But I still have to make a joke….
    If only all those pounds went to his butt and boobs, maybe he could compete with his sisters….

    He could be even more famous than all of them if he wrote a tell all book and became the Anti ~ Kardashian. He’d have lots more fans than all of them put together.

    • Green Is Good says:

      YES. Pimp Mama Satan even spare him a glance occasionally and remember he’s her son.

  21. decorative item says:

    I don’t believe he gained the weight for a story line, but I do think that the family will happily use the situation to spin a story. They are, after all, looking for a niche for him.

    • me says:

      I agree. Either that or he gained enough weight to be eligible for gastric bypass surgery and he may not have been able to lose it by exercise and diet. Who knows…but I am sure the family will use this as a story line on their show.

  22. Bess says:

    Rob should try to do something with his life independently from his mother. Maybe looking for a job or volunteering.

  23. Jgb979 says:

    If anything, the weight gain seems to be the biggest form of rebellion one could possible do with such a vain and superficial family as PMK and her demon spawn.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Very good point. How better to infuriate them than to be fat in their “Royal Wedding” pics?

  24. eliza says:

    My feelings are mixed. I do not believe the family cares.This is stuff Kris leakes to cover up for her and Kim’s superficial and awful behavior, that everyone is alarmed and that Rob is the one with the issues not them

    On the other hand, his past treatment of women and awful things he has said about past girlfriend’s and women in general, make me not completely sympathetic to his plight. Sometimes you reap what you sow.

  25. Andrea says:

    I have to say, I think Rob’s depression is legit but I also see him as feeling very entitled. There was an episode of KUWTK that Scott wanted to team up with Rob gotten a meeting with fashion merchandisers as to get a fashion line started. Rob showed up in sweats and a cap! Not very professional. Rob needs to man up a little and realize that 1. his sisters are a joke and he should be happy not to be branded with them and 2. he could be successful in his own right if he changed his attitude and show some willingness to work with others.

    Rob, we know you have the means, so man up, lose some weight and market your own protein shake or something.

    PMK doesnt know what to do with Rob cause she only knows how to sell her daughters’ bodies.

    • Debb says:

      ITA.
      Is his depression due to his refusal to seek therapy and rehab? Why has ballooned up so quickly? Could it be the drugs he is using to counteract what he was addicted to? Did this entitled brat finish college? So many questions and no one will ever know the truth.
      PMK would rather have him portrayed as depressed instead of an addict.

  26. Sarah says:

    I know he is a jerk too, but I can’t help but feel badly for him. I find this “break” a bit worrisome. Hope he fights through this and ends up OK. Get the last laugh on PMK and your wicked sisters, Rob.

  27. swack says:

    I also have mixed feelings as I have struggled and am struggling with weight issues. But he stated in one of his tweets that he did not believe in therapy or rehab. So in that respect he does not get my sympathy. He also stated that he will work on himself when he wants to (which is the only way he will lose the weight if he wants to do so) do so. He has the ability to take advantage but refuses to do so.

  28. Roxy says:

    It’s apparent that many of the posters on this thread have not struggled with mental health issues or weight gain themselves. It’s not as simple to change as you quickly assume. And for those even considering that this could be a ploy for ratings… Seriously? I do not like this family one bit, but come on! He’s dealing with some serious problems and I hope he is able to feel comfortable and happy about himself in the future. I have to wonder if he may be dealing with substance abuse as well.

    • Size Does Matter says:

      I have experience with both. They go hand in hand. You’re depressed, so you eat. You gain weight so you’re more depressed so you eat more. It’s awful. And if you feel (whether it is true or not) that you have no support system it is even worse. I can’t even imagine how much worse it would be in a family where you feel the pressure to be in the spotlight, looking a certain way, and on top of that you have strangers on twitter telling you you’re fat. People are vicious and nasty to celebrities on twitter. And his father is gone. Of course he’s depressed.

      But only he, with support from somewhere (friends? doctors? trainers? whoever) if he doesn’t have what it takes inside underneath it all, can pull himself out of the pit. And maybe once he’s out he can atone for some if the not wonderful things he’s done and find a way for himself, apart from his mom and sisters.

  29. aenflex says:

    Is a clean break even possible? Who will pay his bills?

  30. swack says:

    From TMZ: “Celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson tells us … Rob texted him when he arrived back from Italy, where he bailed on Kimye’s wedding because he felt too fat to pose for family photographs.
    Gunnar says Rob’s text was clear as crystal — he wanted to hit the ground running … literally … posting up workouts every day this week, and continuing the intensity until the fat is gone.”

    Also: RIP Maya Angelou.

    • Sassy says:

      In order for Rob to lose weight, he must also carefully watch what he eats. Workouts are good for body fitness, of course. Exercise alone will not cause significant weight loss.

  31. Ag says:

    Get away from those plastic monsters, Rob! You can do it! Move to North Dakota and become a life insurance salesman. Or something.

  32. Dame Snarkweek says:

    I’m glad trained mental health professionals know better than to blame the victim.
    Even if the most cynical observer thinks he gained all the weight and is acting out for ratings it still speaks to an extremely damaged/needy relationship with the mother. I know people who have severed ties with toxic family members. It hurt them initially but eventually it lead to healthier, more fulfilled lives for them.

  33. Rex Manning says:

    I think it’s drug-related and the media AKA Kris are using the weight gain as an excuse/distraction

  34. me says:

    I heard the family was doing a Vogue spread in Paris for the wedding but Rob didn’t want to take part in it. He was being pressured by the family to do the photo shoot. He felt so pressured that he decided to just go home.

    No one should “fat shame” anyone. We all could easily gain weight and be right where Rob is, especially if some medical issue is involved. Do I think Rob is the nicest person? No. Do I think this experience of being mocked for his weight will make him be a better person? Yes. His karma is biting him in the butt right now. Hopefully he finally does something about his weight as he does not look healthy…and I also hope he gets some psychological help or that weight is going to creep back up on him as fast as he melts it off.

  35. shelley says:

    I feel worried for him. I don’t think this is some scripted nonsense for the show. If anything, I think he wants off of the show. He was barely on last season, and when he was his family was just on him about his weight. I think he is very depressed, and that his huge weight gain in such a short period of time is a manifestation of this. He obviously feels terrible about himself and how he looks, I don’t get people saying he just needs to get a job and grow up. They must not understand depression. When you feel worthless you don’t feel like you can do any of those things. Just because he’s wealthy and has perceived advantages in life doesn’t mean he can’t feel worthless. He’s been working with a trainer off and on for awhile now, if this was just about his weight he’d already have lost some. Instead he’s gotten even bigger. I think he needs to address whatever emotional issues he’s dealing with first. Instead, his family just focuses on the weight, what he’s eating, how much he’s exercising, etc. and they don’t even look at his mental state (with the exception of maybe Khloe and Scott). The rest just don’t seem to get it, beyond his physicality.

  36. G says:

    What wretched sisters he has. Not one had his back. RUN ROB RUN!! You’re not one of them…RUN don’t walk.

  37. ViktoryGin says:

    I believe that there are more issues at play than only potential clinical depression. From what little I have seen (inadvertently) of the show, he has always struck me as one who suffers from crippling issues regarding self-worth and completely is out of touch with his identity. Add depression to the mix, and you’ve got the perfect shit storm. Suddenly, you’ve dug yourself a hole that is all but impossible to crawl out of. I know that it is easy to deride someone who has as much access and resources as he does, but all of that is naught if you don’t have a strong sense of self to make proper use of them, which is what I think that he lacks.

    As someone, who herself, has suffered from an abiding purposelessness, I know stagnation and listlessness when I see it. And I think that it’s only going to get worse before it gets better. You eat because your will is broken and the only feeling you can muster half of the time is nothingness. You know you’re gaining weight. No one has to tell you. The thing is, you convince yourself that “it’s not as bad as you think.”

    I really do feel that he would have turned out differently if his father were still alive to have imparted a sense of integrity, pride, and purpose, provided of course that Kardashian Sr was such a man. He lost the only stable male figure that he had in his life only to be thrown to the pack of wolves he calls a mother and sisters. They really do little more than emasculate him. It’s not wonder he has “woman issues”.

    He really is better off striking it out on his own for while.

  38. word says:

    I think Rob was pressured into making as much money as his sisters and it just hasn’t happened for him. He needs to realize his sisters use their bodies and shameful tactics and pr stunts to make money. He, as a male, doesn’t have that “luxury”. I’m sure he wished he could make easy money like them, but for a male Kardashian, things are not like that. If he really wanted to go to law school, what was stopping him? He could afford the tuition. He should have become a silent partner in all his sisters’ businesses…he’d be making almost as much as them now. I have seen him on the show talk about becoming a “porn star”. I really hope he was joking.

    • Jen34 says:

      Exactly. This family sells sex, and Rob doesn’t have any game. He has no famous gf, no sex tape, etc. He needs to find something else besides the family business of famewhoring.

      His weight is a symptom not a cause. The whole family has weight issues except for the Jenner kids. Even PMK is looking chunky.

      • word says:

        Kourtney’s never had a weight issue. Yes, Khloe, Kim, Rob, and Kris all have had their weight go up and down. I actually think PMK is slimmer now than she was a few years ago. I don’t know if it’s from lipo or dieting though.

  39. Feebee says:

    Whatever he’s looking for he’s not finding it with his family. He needs friends who’ll support him and help him set and strive for some life goals.

    He needs to find a passion and I really don’t think it’s socks and throw himself into it. I don’t know how much resolve and stamina he has. I imagine growing up with PMK would be emotionally draining, soul crushing at times and possibly without real life skills.

    Good luck Rob.

    • me says:

      If you look at childhood pics of Rob, he was pretty heavy as a child as well. Perhaps he developed bad eating habits as a kid? His dad was alive then, so it wouldn’t have been due to that. He is definitely an emotional eater. During his high school and college years he used to hit the gym a lot and he ran track I believe. He was busy with school, lived away from home and his family and he was doing great. The minute he graduated and moved back home is when his weight issues slowly started creeping up on him again. He’s been steadily gaining weight for a few years now. He didn’t just all of a sudden put the weight back on. He probably feels rejected not only by women but by his own family. Yet, it does seem Khloe is usually the one to comfort him. Perhaps she’s too busy with her new bf to give a damn? I know Kim always gives Rob a hard time. She always tells him to “get a real job”…lol excuse me Kim but what “real job” do you have? You got famous and rich off a sex tape…calm down with the judgement girl !

      • jwoolman says:

        Rob is younger than Khloe, who was about five when the parents divorced. I remember because she said she was in therapy, she was taking it so badly. He was living with Demon Mother as a child. At some point (teens?) he started living with his dad, who encouraged him to get a college education. Kourtney also eventually went to live with her dad (hmm, the only other college grad in the family)… Robert Sr. died before Rob finished (or maybe even started) college. So that’s the timeline.

        Demon Mother really damaged all those kids, and their stepfather (though lacking demon blood) hadn’t much of a clue about how to be a real parent. The K girls all act as though they hate being in the same room with D. M., especially the oldest Kourtney. Khloe really isn’t the nice one- she vacillates between being somewhat sensible and being viciously manipulative and controlling. She was awful to his girlfriend (Adrienne? The Cheetah Girl) and to the girlfriends’ parents. She was pulling the same manipulations with Humphries. Must be even worse off camera. She might change if she gets a child- Kourtney certainly did. Khloe was used as a cheap live-in nanny for the Jenner girls (they got her a driver’s license at 13 so she could take them to the ER if needed, meaning she was alone with the younger ones). So she has nurturing experience at least. But she really is too much like her mother, while at the same time seething with resentment about how her mother has always treated her.

        Anyway, I hope Rob stays away from his toxic family long enough to heal and especially gives up on his mother and sisters as a source of nurturing support. The mother hasn’t a nurturing bone in her body, and the sisters have their own mommy issues to deal with. He needs to realize that has nothing to do with him and he needs to move forward away from their peculiar turmoil. His life would indeed had been very different if his dad had lived. Robert Sr. wasn’t perfect, but he would have definitely guided Rob into a productive life based on actually working for a living. Others in his family really should have stepped up for those kids, but maybe they were also dysfunctional or maybe Demon Mother was too hard to get past even when they were older. Who knows?

  40. Mingy says:

    I think it’s great that he deleted his Instagram and Twitter, the negativity spewing from there can’t possibly help his depression, or low self-esteem.

  41. Miss5280 says:

    I will NEVER understand the whole obsession with “how my wedding pictures will look!” that makes people expect that everyone who will be in them will diet and get makeovers so they look better. Pictures of an event are just that – and they should reflect the people you love and care about as they are. Do you only love and care about them for what they look like? I hope not. Life isn’t a magazine shoot. And if you want to live a life as fake as a magazine shoot, then just hire models to be your “friends” and “relatives” for the day and go on with your empty life.

    Of course, we are talking about the Kardashians here so “empty life” is a given.

  42. ickythump says:

    Ive said it bfore n il say it again hes gotta get away from th kk klan – anyone with a mother like that old pimp is bound to hav issues – hes not making her any money so hes of no value to her -I hope he can find some genuine friends who wont care what his name is and help him to live a real fulfilling life.

  43. Pale fire says:

    This has gotta suck. Could you imagine ? I bug out if someone invites me to go to the beach.
    I’m never happy with how I look. As a self conscious person, I can only imagine how he feels. I would not want to go to that wedding like that or events w that much exposure if I was even 15 lbs over weight. I hope he goes away to a retreat or spa and gets some serious help, meditating , exercise, healing. Hope he finds a nice girl that’s the opposite of his mom&sisters and becomes a part of her family. Hope he decides to go to college and maybe get into charity or non profit work. That would be awesome to see.
