Rob Kardashian is still in hot water over how he insulted his sister, Kim Kardashian — but why did he do it? Now HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned what may have fueled Rob’s public attack.
The turmoil over Rob Kardashian, 28, and his current behavior continues as the Kardashian family is asking what we’re all asking: why did Rob lash out against his sister, Kim Kardashian, 34, on Instagram? Now, thanks to an EXCLUSIVE HollywoodLife.com report, we have some insight into Rob and Kim’s relationship, as well as what possibly motivated Rob to post such an angry message about his sister.
Rob Kardashian Attack: Kim Kardashian Didn’t Do Anything To Provoke His Attack
“No one in the family is sure what prompted his angry post towards Kim, but it definitely got their attention,” an insider EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. This follows early reports on how Rob has continued to grow more anti-social, refusing to see anyone or leave his room for days on end.
There’s no clear-cut explanation as to why Rob targeted his sister in that Instagram post. “Kim has been more likely to treat Rob with tough love,” the source claims. Generally, that means she’s given him space and time to “do what he needs to do,” while thinking he would come out of the darkness when he was good and ready.
“She certainly didn’t do anything so harsh that it warranted that kind of response from Rob,” the insider added.
This is the most attention Rob has received in a while and that might be his reason behind everything, claims the insider. “All of them are so caught up in their own lives, Rob gets ignored for the most part – unless it’s his birthday or a holiday, but even then, he’s an after-thought.”
This might explain the report in People magazine that Rob was “depressed” and a “bit off,” as he feels bad over his inability to lose weight. But, Rob’s family sees that as no reason to publicly insult his sister, as his mother, Kris Jenner, has demanded Rob to apologize and Kim’s husband, Kanye West, who is looking for a one-on-one confrontation with his brother-in-law.
Kris Jenner Orders Emergency Family Meeting Over Rob Kardashian Crisis
The Kardashian family is going to get the source of Rob’s rage sooner than later. Kris ordered Kim, Kayne, Khloe Kardasian — even Bruce Jenner — to her house for an emergency family meeting to figure out how best to handle the Rob situation, a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. It seems that the whole family is coming together to get to the bottom of this.
