Poor Caitlyn Jenner! It must be so hard to not have the support of your entire family when going through one of the most important periods of your life! What’s it going to take to get Rob Kardashian out of his reclusion?
Though Caitlyn Jenner, 65, has had family and friends largely praise her after transitioning, there’s one person who has been missing throughout this entire process: Rob Kardashian, 28. Caitlyn’s stepson has been MIA post transition, and it’s not because of his usual tendency to hide from the limelight — he allegedly just hasn’t been able to accept this change. So sad!
Rob hasn’t been to visit Caitlyn even once since she transitioned, according to a report from US Weekly. Though Rob was very close to his stepfather before going into a downward spiral leading to his seclusion from the public, he reportedly can’t seem to gather himself to meet — or support — Caitlyn.
Rob “doesn’t really get it,” an insider told US. “He can’t deal,” another source added. How awful for Caitlyn. While it’s understandable that first hearing about your loved one’s decision to transition could be a sensitive topic, it seems by now that Rob would join his sisters and step-siblings in rallying around Caitlyn!
Maybe this explains why Rob was the only one of Cait’s kids who didn’t attend her magnificent 2015 ESPY Awards honor? Rob’s inability to get out of the house and really attend anything was cited for his no-show, but perhaps his reluctance to see Caitlyn face-to-face had something to do with it, too.
To be fair, Rob has been struggling with issues relating to his own appearance and, according to big sis Kim Kardashian, drug abuse, so he’s not going to jump at the chance to hit up a very public event — but not meeting with Caitlyn is another problem entirely!
But this is for sure: even if Rob allegedly won’t visit Caitlyn, he’s in awe of who she’s become. Rob didn’t know that Caitlyn was going to appear on the cover of Vanity Fair, and when he was shown, he was blown away by her beauty. He called her and talked about the cover, according to Kim. Maybe an in person heart-to-heart is next!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Rob should meet with Caitlyn?
