Things are getting UGLY between Rob Kardashian and his famous family. As if refusing to appear in the clan’s annual Christmas card wasn’t bad enough, Rob also reportedly attempted to bribe them, claiming he would only pose for the photo if he was paid $50K for his appearance!
The holiday season: it’s the happiest time of the year — just not for the Kardashian/Jenner clan. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Rob Kardashian, 28, will NOT appear in the family’s famous Christmas card once again this year, an event he’s snubbed for three years running now. Unfortunately, the drama surrounding his appearance didn’t stop there, as a new report is now claiming that Rob had allegedly demanded Kris Jenner, 60, pay him $50,000 to make his comeback appearance, before ultimately turning it down completely! Where’s your holiday spirit Rob?
There always seems to be some sort of drama surrounding the Kardashian/Jenner family Christmas card, and this year, it seemed to have a whole lot to do with Rob…and money! Having skipped the over-the-top photo shoot for three years now, Rob felt that his appearance was now worth a little extra cash — ok, make that a lot of cash! “This year, Rob refused to appear,” a source told Life & Style magazine. “But Kris begged him, and he demanded $50,000.” Ouch!
As nasty as that may sound, Rob may actually have a valid reason for not wanting to get in on the family’s outrageous seasonal greetings. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Rob has wrestled with his weight over the past year, and still really isn’t feeling all that confident in his appearance. “Rob is still struggling, he’s made progress but he still isn’t comfortable being seen in public,” said our source on Nov. 18. “He doesn’t want to be on their Christmas card, he’s said he won’t do it this year, it’s causing a lot of drama.” We’ll say!
This also isn’t the first time that Rob has skipped out on a major family photo opt either. On Thanksgiving, The youngest Kardashian member was noticeably missing from the giant Thanksgiving day family snap that nearly every member of the family posted to their social feeds. As we later came to find out, Rob was indeed at the festive feast, he just chose not to participate.
“He lives with Khloe,” Kris explained during SiriusXM’s Conversations with Maria Menounos on Dec. 2. “So he was around, and then went over to a buddy’s house. He’s doing all right. You know, he’s doing his best. He’s not into being on camera as much as the rest of us. But he’s working on himself. He’s going to be okay.” Good to know!
