Khloé Kardashian and her younger brother, Rob Kardashian, are living together yet again, and according to a recent interview, the 31-year-old couldn't be happier. The brother-sister duo have lived together on multiple occasions throughout the years, unfortunately, it hasn't always worked out well for either of them.
In an interview with Complex magazine, Khloé, 31, revealed that she and Rob are living under the same roof. According to the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, things are going well for her and Rob this time around. Khloé told the publication she truly enjoys sharing a home with him and "wouldn't have it any other way." Khloé also said she had her little brother in mind when purchasing the home, noting that it's large and very private, which she hoped would help him feel at ease there.
"I have a big a-- house and I wanted it so he could feel, like, comfortable," she revealed. "He's going through a hard time now, and it's behind gates. With this crazy lifestyle you have to think of places where you can still have your freedom."
Although things are going well for them, Khloé says Rob occasionally gets the urge to move out on his own. She assured Complex, however, that it has nothing to do with their relationship. According to the reality star, Rob sometimes worries about how people will perceive the fact that at 28 years old he's living with his sister. She is always there to reassure him that, while it may not sound like an ideal setup, many of his friends are worse off.
"I'm like, 'Put this into perspective: Your friends live at home with their parents because they can't do anything else. Your sister's literally holding you captive and actively making you. So if that makes you feel better, say that all you want,'" she said.
This isn't the first time the siblings have lived together. During her marriage to Lamar Odom, which came to an end in December 2013, Rob lived in Khloé's marital home. He moved out prior to their divorce, noting that it wasn't the healthiest environment for him. After splitting from Lamar, Khloé decided to move in with Rob in his modest condo. At the time, Rob was following a strict dieting regimen which was often interrupted by Khloé. She eventually moved out.
While Khloé tends to take a more motherly approach to dealing with her brother, older sister Kim Kardashian-West is all about tough love. During a July 1 interview with Rolling Stone, Kim revealed to the world what Rob has been up to since withdrawing from the public eye several years ago. According to the 34-year-old, "he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games." While this lifestyle is not exactly what she had envisioned for Rob, the soon-to-be mother of two noted that it could be much worse. She also explained his absence from "KUWTK," saying "he feels uncomfortable" appearing on camera, but "that's OK."
Rob has been very open about his struggles with his weight as well as anxiety and depression. He allowed the early stages of that battle to be filmed for his family's reality series before shying away from E!'s cameras. His family has tried on several occasions to get him to seek treatment. During a Season 10 episode of "KUWTK" his mom, Kris Jenner, organized a surprise intervention for her only son. Unfortunately, not everyone in the family was on board. Rob declined the help, much to the dismay of Khloé and his mother. He is not believed to have gotten help on his own since that incident.
