Rob Kardashian called older sister Kim the b---- from “Gone Girl” because he felt ignored by her, Us Weekly reported Wednesday. Rumors of a family feud reignited after the Arthur George sock designer posted the graphic photo to Instagram, but neither party has officially issued a statement-- leading to endless speculation.
“Rob is in a dark place” and “Kim told him he needs to get out of his funk,” an insider told Us Weekly. “His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored,” a second source said.
Rob, 28, has gone on a media hiatus since he gained 50 pounds. His sisters occasionally discuss him and his weight on the family reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” but he hasn’t appeared on the current season.
Since his sisters have apparently abandoned him, the failing sock designer has sought companionship with attractive women he finds on social media, Radar Online wrote. “He has never said anything sexual to me. He’s a very respectful guy,” an unnamed Instagram model told Radar. “He just asks me what I like to do for fun, how my day was.” She added: “It just seems like he wants someone to talk to.”
Even Khloe, his “No. 1 supporter,” admitted to MSN’s Wonderwall her brother isn’t in the best place. “I just feel, especially over the last year, Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety,” she said. “He’s definitely not at his happiest place that he once was, and I know he can get to that happy place and he will.”
