Rob Kardashian has been in the news for all the wrong reasons lately—with rumors that he is depressed, on drugs, and feuding with his family. His mother, Kris Jenner, has opened up about her son and how he is doing.
"Rob is living in L.A. right now and he's doing well, finding out what makes him tick and struggling with some stuff," his mom told E!, without going into specific details. "My job is to be there for him and to love him as hard as I can. Everybody goes through stuff."
After gaining weight last year after a bad breakup with singer Rita Ora, the 27-year-old began to seclude himself. Two months ago, there were reports that Rob checked himself into rehab at The Meadows trauma and addiction treatment center in Arizona. He reportedly gained weight due to smoking marijuana, drinking alcohol and prescription cough syrup.
Rob later went onto Twitter to debunk the rumors, but that didn’t stop fans from talking about his new appearance. Now, the young reality star is said to be over the show that put his family in the spotlight—E!’s “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” According to RadarOnline, he does not want to have a recurring storyline on the popular television program.
The younger brother “has been holed up in his house, and hasn’t been returning calls from concerned family members. Rob made the decision months ago that he didn’t want to have a recurring storyline on the upcoming season of 'KUWTK' and drastically cut back on filming,” a source told RadarOnline.
Apparently, he feels the reality show has “ruined his family,” and the weight gain has not helped. Rob reportedly thinks "that momager Kris Jenner is always on the look out for the next big deal for one of her daughters. His significant weight gain has only added to the stress in his life. He has been working out but has very bad eating habits. He just feels very alone,” RadarOnline’s source continued.
