Rob Kardashian’s Weight Issues: Kris Jenner Wants To Stage Family Intervention
Could Rob be in a deep depression — so much so that he needs professional help? His mother seems to think so after he decided not to join the family on Kim’s big wedding day.
“Rob needs professional help but is unwilling to get it. He doesn’t believe in therapy or rehab, even though his family and friends have urged him to get support for his weight struggles,” a friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He has been isolating and when he got to Kim’s rehearsal dinner in Paris, he had a panic attack and was freaking out.”
Family members did their best to persuade Rob to stay and attend the festivities in Florence, but they didn’t have any luck.
“Kris and Khloe [Kardashian] tried to convince him to stay but once he made up his mind to leave, no one could convince him otherwise. He got mad at his family for not taking his panic attacks seriously,” the insider explains. “No one really made an issue of his weight gain. In fact, he was the one who kept saying, ‘I am a loser,’ ‘I am embarrassing the family’… he was making it all about him, when in reality no one cared, they were just happy that he made it to Paris.”
Poor Rob! It sounds like he really needs the support of his family and friends right now.
“Rob said he didn’t want to ruin the wedding and deal with all the beautiful people who would be talking about him behind his back. He really needs help,” says the friend. “Kris wants to stage an intervention, but the whole family needs to get on board in order for it to be successful.”
Rob Ditches Kim’s Wedding — Valentino Clothes Didn’t Fit?
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Rob skipped Kim’s wedding because none of the Valentino clothes he was supposed to wear on the big day fit him.
“Rob said he was sickened by Kim and Kanye’s display of wealth and clothes and beauty and called it ‘superficial bullsh*t’ but Kim was pissed that Rob hadn’t made an effort to drop any weight over the past few months,” a source told X17. “Rob basically thinks Kim cares about him only for his appearance and he said he’d ‘make life easier’ for her and just leave.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers, does Rob need professional help? Should Kris stage an intervention? Let us know.
