This is heartbreaking. Rob Kardashian’s personal issues are beginning to take a toll on the rest of his family. The reality star’s battle against depression and weight control saddens his loved ones as they only want to see him happy.
It’s no lie that the Kardashian clan sticks together. When it comes to the only boy of the fam, Rob Kardashian, 28, there is no exception. Through years of fighting through issues of depression and weight control, Rob’s sister’s and family have never given up on him. Unfortunately a family source is saying that Rob continues to “struggle”, leaving his family feeling helpless.
When fans think of the Kardashians, they often forget about Rob, which comes as no surprise as the entrepreneur has been left out of much of the spotlight surrounding the family. In the past few years, Rob has been absent from numerous family get togethers, including Kim Kardashian‘s epic European wedding.
The KUWTK star began shielding himself from the public eye after gaining 100 pounds and dealing with the effects of depression. Now, after years of watching Rob suffer, his fellow family members are beginning to feel the effects of his pain. “Rob is still struggling and it makes the family sad. He deals with depression, weight issues and low self-esteem, but that’s been going on for a long time,” a source recently told People.
Still though, his family, and older sisters specifically, have been working hard to bring Rob back to his joyful self. “The family, especially Khloé, is very much there for him but it has to be his own journey to figure out,” the source continued. Both Khloé Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian have openly supported Rob through the use of social media, posting throwback pictures with their baby bro alongside encouraging captions.
In the past, Kourtney has shared her thoughts on Rob’s problems in an interview with People. “He’s such a great guy. That’s also what’s so infuriating,” Khloé said. “He’s charming, charismatic, everything. But I’m like, where is your will to live? Where is your will to live life? Let’s be around people!”
We hope Rob can overcome these issues and find happiness soon! What do you think HollywoodLifers, are the Kardashian’s doing all they can to help their brother? Speak up below!
