Who knew Kanye West would be the reason behind Rob Kardashian’s lifestyle change? The reality star has been working hard to get back into shape and he has his brother-in-law to thank for that!
Rob Kardashian, 28, has been struggling with his weight gain ever since 2014. Now, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star is losing considerable weight, all thanks to Kanye West, 38! Apparently the rapper was able to give the 28-year-old the motivation he needed to start dropping the pounds.

An insider close to the family opened up to UsWeekly that Kanye is the main motivator behind Rob’s health and fitness kick. “It’s Kanye working his magic,” a source tells Us. “He’s been a great motivator for Rob. He told Rob how he got into shape after his accident and at a time when he was down in his life.” Kanye was involved in a car accident in 2002 that left his jaw broken in three places and his mouth wired shut. The rapper wasn’t able to move his mouth or talk, but he still managed to create a hit song two weeks after his accident. It sounds like Yeezy shared that motivational story with Rob. All he needed was someone who knew and understood what he was going through.
The source continued to reveal that Kanye was also responsible for fixing Kim Kardashian‘s, 34, relationship with her younger brother. He reportedly “told them to work it out — they are family,” the insider revealed. Kim and Rob have had a strained relationship ever since Rob started having physical and emotional issues. To give an example of how bad their relationship was, Rob decided to not attend Kim and Kanye’s wedding days before the ceremony. Roughly a year after the wedding drama, Kim and Rob made up and even went on a hike together!

Keep up the great work, Rob!
