Getting a divorce is hard enough, but it’s especially hard when your brother and ex-husband are still close! Khloe Kardashian is warning younger brother Rob Kardashian to scale back his contact with her ex Lamar Odom, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Khloe Kardashian, 29, and her brother Rob Kardashian, 27, are extremely close. They’re so close that Rob even lived with Khloe and her ex-husband Lamar Odom when they were married! Khloe knows that Rob is going through an extremely hard time right now and understands that he needs “male companionship” and guidance, but a source tells HollywoodLife.com that she REALLY wishes Rob would stop turning to Lamar for support.
Khloe Kardashian Warns Rob Kardashian: Stay Away From Lamar Odom
We completely understand why Rob needs positive male figures in his life right now. He’s extremely depressed about his recent weight gain and all the drama surrounding Kim Kardashian’s wedding. At the same time, we also understand why Khloe would feel uncomfortable with Rob reaching out to Lamar — he is her ex-husband, after all. Khloe has finally decided to talk with Rob about where he should turn for help.
“Khloe has been in contact with Rob and urged him to seek Bruce Jenner‘s help with his problems and not Lamar,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY about the situation. “She wasn’t threatening Rob or anything like that, but she made it clear that she doesn’t approve of him being in constant contact with Lamar because she thinks he can be toxic and clingy.”
Wow. Khloe is definitely trying to be supportive of Rob while trying to get him to open up and build a deeper relationship with their stepdad, Bruce!
HollywoodLife.com’s source also revealed EXCLUSIVELY that Khloe wishes she could be Rob’s biggest source of support, but understands that he’s looking for guidance from another male right now.
Khloe Kardashian’s Pain Over Rob’s Weight Gain
Khloe feels devastated when people make fun of her younger brother for his weight troubles. On her jet ride to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s May 24 wedding, Khloe cried just thinking about her brother’s depression.
“She’s so protective of her family and took a moment to cry on her flight to Paris just thinking about how awful Rob must feel,” a source close to Khloe revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “She cried for him because she knows somewhere he’s lost touch and let his weight get out of control.”
We sincerely hope Rob finds the support he needs to feel happy and whole again. It’s clear that Khloe is on “Team Rob” and wants to help him in any way she can. What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Khloe’s pushing of Rob to open up to Bruce, not Lamar, is a good thing or a bad thing?
