Rob Kardashian: Did Lamar Odom’s ‘Abandonment’ Trigger His Issues?

Rob Kardashian Lamar Odom Abandonment

This is so sad. Rob Kardashian’s current troubles are due to a feeling of ‘abandonment’ that he is suffering following Lamar Odom’s estrangement from Khloe Kardashian, according to a new report.

It’s no secret that Rob Kardashian, 27, has been having difficulties as of late, his weight gain only a symptom of a larger problem. Sources have previously revealed to that Rob is “deeply depressed,” and a new report claims that the trigger for his depression was sister Khloe Kardashian‘s separation from Lamar Odom, 34.

Rob Kardashian: Lamar Odom’s Abandonment Could Have Triggered His Problems

Rob saw Lamar as a father figure, TMZ is reporting, and the subsequent “fatherly abandonment” that Rob is feeling is what drove him to alleged excessive partying and to weight gain.

The death of Rob’s father, Robert Kardashian, was totally devastating to him, sources have revealed to TMZ, and he “never really got over it.”

However, when Khloe married Lamar back in Sept. 2009, Lamar filled that void in Rob’s life. “Rob thrived around Lamar, inspiring him to start a business and get in awesome shape. They became best friends, but Rob idolized him.”

Khloe Kardashian Reveals That Her House With Lamar Odom Made Rob Kardashian ‘Do Dark Things’

In Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe, 30, has said that Lamar basically poisoned her brother. “Rob has said, like, ‘Being in that house, it was so dark, and it made me do dark things,'” she told Brody Jenner, 39, on their Thailand trip in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

However, it wasn’t Lamar’s drug use that was the culprit for these dark deeds — it was the dissolution of Khloe and Lamar’s relationship, says TMZ.

Basically, Rob was seeing mum and dad fight and that was bad enough; when Lamar disappeared off the face of the planet to allegedly abuse drugs and to cheat on Khloe, that was the final straw which led to his depression and its physical manifestation — the oft-talked about weight gain.

That said, Rob is, predictably, not thrilled that KUWTK is examining his personal issues. “Rob really resents that his entire family is capitalizing on his weight issues by talking about them on Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” a source previously revealed to

“It’s embarrassing enough, so much so that he’s just isolating himself, especially from the family. He still talks to Khloe, but he just doesn’t spend as much time with her because he wants to isolate himself.”

So sad!

HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Was it Lamar that triggered Rob’s depression, or is there something else at play? Let us know what you think.
