Rob Kardashian is over the reality show that put his family in the spotlight—E!’s “Keeping up with the Kardashians”--according to reports. The 27-year-old, who has been famously struggling with his weight over the past year, has retreated into anonymity, and 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.
Rob has already begun avoiding his family members. Last month, he ditched his sister Kim’s wedding in Italy and flew back home to Los Angeles. "He wanted to be there, but he was feeling so insecure and didn't want anyone to see him heavier like this. Kim and Kanye completely understand. They love Rob and only want him to be healthy and happy," a source told E!
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.
Rob started gaining weight after a bad breakup with singer Rita Ora last year. Rob is not the only Kardashian who has been blasted in the media because of their size. For years, Khloe also faced backlash for years due to her stature and weight. The 5-foot-10-inch reality star has since lost at least 30 pounds by working out and eating healthier.
