Poor Rob! Many people struggle with weight issues, but most don’t have to deal with it in such a public manner. Rob actually resents his family for capitalizing on his weight issues by talking about them on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’ a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively!
We can’t imagine how tough it is for Rob Kardashian, who is struggling with weight issues, to watch his family broadcast his hardships by talking about them on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. He’s so embarrassed that he’s now staying completely separate from all the girls in his family.
Rob Kardashian’s Weight Issues On ‘KUWTK’: Star Isolating Himself After Struggles
“Rob really resents that his entire family is capitalizing on his weight issues by talking about them on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. It’s embarrassing enough, so much so that he’s just isolating himself, especially from the family. He still talks to Khloe [Kardashian], but he just doesn’t spend as much time with her because he wants to isolate himself,” a friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
As documented on the E! reality series, the 27-year-old skipped out on a family vacation to Thailand. Rob, who has rarely appeared on the show this season, didn’t explain his absence, but the family speculated it had something to do with depression and his weight struggles.
Khloe admitted that she feels horrible about what Rob’s going through, but Kim Kardashian feels her brother is an adult and he needs tough love. It’s for that very reason that Kim and Rob are not speaking.
Rob’s mom, Kris Jenner, on the other hand, fell into tears while discussing his struggles on the series.

“I want to fix Rob. Sometimes you just can’t. I have not not cried myself to sleep in so long, I don’t even know what that’s like. I go to bed every night worried about everybody and I’m sure Khloe’s doing the same thing,” Kris told Kim on the July 27 episode of KUWTK.
It’s obvious that Rob’s family truly cares about him, but he clearly doesn’t want his weight struggles to serve as a storyline on the series.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is it fair that Rob’s family is capitalizing on his weight issues?
