Rob Kardashian In Rehab — Reality Star Seeking Treatment
The younger brother of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, is reportedly being “treated for depression” at the famous facility.
“Rob has been checked into The Meadows for about a month for substance-abuse issues,” a source tells Star. “He’s been feeling stronger and more relaxed without the incessant berating from everyone. I would love to see him show up a changed man at Kim’s wedding and gain some independence.”
The report goes on to say that he didn’t want to go on the trip and feel pressure to take his shirt off on camera. Rob has reportedly skyrocketed to 260lbs.
“Rob was drinking a lot of Sizzurp, and that’s one of the reasons he gained so much weight,” the insider alleges. “Rob is well past the point of desperation and now is just flatout miserable. He wants to be the star of the Kardashians for once in his life, but right now he feels like he’s bringing the entire family down.”
Rob Going To Kim Kardashian’s Wedding?
HollywoodLife.com spoke to Rob himself who told us: “My number 1 goal is working on my sock business and getting my health straight, losing a bunch of weight and feeling good and happy again. We have all been working out more — me, my mom, and Kim. Khloe has been going hard, we kinda all do. Kendall even started hitting the gym and she never use to hit the gym because she’s just young and she’s skinny but now [she does]. We are all helping each other out and I’m trying to lose a crazy amount of weight. I’ve been struggling and it’s a new year so we are all kinda on the same page.”
He also told us that he is definitely planning on going to Kim’s wedding:
Yeah, of course, obviously you want to look good, you want to wear nice suit so I definitely have a goal. I’m just going to go really hard. I go to the gym two times a day and I changed my diet and I’m eating pretty intensely. Now I just have to stick with it, that’s my biggest thing. I always want to jump around; there are so many friends I have that all want to help out in some way and I just have to stick with one plan — I can’t keep switching. You have to be consistent. I have a chef that makes the right type of food. I consulted a nutritionist so I’m eating the right amounts of food and all around healthy stuff.
We are so happy that he’s getting the help he needs.
