Rob Kardashian is back on E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” after a lengthy hiatus. It seems, however, that not everyone is happy to have the youngest of the Kardashian siblings back on the show.
Previews for Season 12 suggest that the 28-year-old’s reliance on his mother will cause a rift in the family unit. Video release by the network shows Kim and Khloé Kardashian confronting Kris Jenner about her decision to continue paying for Rob’s home. Kim tells Kris that she is “the problem,” adding that Rob is too old to be having his home paid for by his mother. Khloé chimes in, telling Kris it’s time to “cut the cord.” This infuriates Kris, who feels that she’s done the same thing for the rest of the Kardashian kids, bringing up Kim’s disastrous — and brief — marriage to Kris Humphries.
This isn’t the only Rob-centric drama going down during Season 12 of the hit series. On Tuesday E! Online shared yet another clip, this time featuring Kendall and Kylie Jenner. In it, the Victoria’s Secret model is shown shortly after learning that an iPad that she gave her big brother for Christmas had been regifted. Rob reportedly gave the device to his fianceé, Blac Chyna, which Kendall doesn’t think “is very cool.” She addresses the situation immediately, calling Rob and demanding the iPad back. He laughs off his sister’s anger, refusing to return the tablet.
Season 12 of “KUWTK” was announced in February. The network released a teaser trailer for the show which focused on their bond as a family unit. Kendall, Khloé and Kim are shown in the trailer, reiterating their strong connection. During one portion of the video Kendall says she “can’t let” the opinions of outsiders stand between her and her family, while sister Kim says “family really means everything.”
“KUWTK” premieres Sunday, May 1 at 9 p.m. EDT on E!.
