The Kardashians are no strangers to drama, but the famous family has always stuck together through thick and thin. Sadly, it seems Rob Kardashian’s recent troubles are just too much for Kim and Khloe to handle — the sisters are fighting over how to help their distressed little brother, and things are getting heated!
It’s an all-out battle now as Kim Kardashian, 34, and Khloe Kardashian, 30, take sides in the fight to help Rob, 28, regain his life after their depressed brother has turned into a recluse — shunning his family, refusing to go outside and packing on over 100 pounds. It’s a serious issue for any family to approach, but when the story is played out on TV, the stakes are even higher — and it’s tearing the sisters apart.
Khloe Kardashain & Kim Kardashian Fight To Help Their Brother Rob
It’s no secret that Rob needs help. The youngest Kardashian, who used to be a series regular on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has barely been seen in months, reportedly moving out of Khloe’s cushy Calabasas mansion into a low-budget hotel in Downtown LA. He apparently refuses to talk to anyone in the family but Khloe — and there may be a reason for that.
Kim thinks that Khloe (and the rest of the family) has gone too soft on Rob, “enabling” him while he sinks deeper into his depression, according to US Weekly. Kim wants to use tough love, cutting Rob off financially so he’ll seek help.
“Kris sends her assistants to pick him up In-N-Out Burger and video games, but Rob won’t even walk outside,” said a family source. “Kim gets that he’s depressed, but if he lives this lavish life and refuses to get treatment, she won’t feel bad for him.”
It’s clear that Rob isn’t a fan of Kim’s approach. After feeling betrayed by his sister’s comments about his life during a recent episode of KUWTK, he took to Instagram on March 22, comparing her to the psychopathic “bitch” from Gone Girl.
Khloe’s Approach With Rob: Proceed With Caution
While Khloe agrees that Rob needs a serious intervention, she’d like to do so more gently. Khloe has been letting her brother live rent-free at her Calabasas mansion, checking in on him frequently even when he’s not around.
Khloe claims she’s not the enabler Kim has painted; she wants Rob to be healthy and happy, but doesn’t want to hurt the person she always turned to when her life was a mess — during her 2013 split with husband Lamar Odom.
“She told Rob he could stay with her until he figured out his next move and get a handle on his life,” a source told us EXCLUSIVELY. “He hasn’t been doing that from her vantage point and she’s tired of it and feels used by him.”
