Kim Kardashian totally dissed her younger brother Rob Kardashian on ‘KUWTK’ when she made fun of his Rita Ora tattoo being stretched out from his weight gain. But now a source tells HollywoodLife.com how she feels after the major backlash from the episode!
Kim Kardashian seemed like the meanest sister ever when she laughed about Rob Kardashian‘s weight during the Jan. 3 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The 35-year-old reality star was talking with her family during their St. Barths vacation and began to reminisce about Rob’s tattoo of Rita Ora which she said went from looking like a Barbie doll to a Cabbage Patch Doll — ouch! Kim knows some fans think she sounded just horribly unsupportive and now we know what she want her fans to realize.
“Kim and the rest of the family have tried everything, whether it is tough love, crying, yelling or joking to get Rob to realize he needs help,” a source tells us. “Kim really is worried about Rob but anything she has done hasn’t been to start a feud, it has been to help her brother. She just wants him to be OK.” But fans still think it was really awful what she said and in case you didn’t see the episode, here’s exactly what she said: “He covered it with a life-sized Barbie doll of Rita that has now turned into a Cabbage Patch Doll,” Kim laughed. “Have you seen it lately? It was like a Barbie doll and he’s gained weight and it’s now like a huge Cabbage Patch Kid. Huge!”
This really isn’t cool at all but family can sometimes say things they don’t mean. Then again, Kim needs to be supportive of Rob, 28, during this time. We told you that during the holidays Rob was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and raced to the hospital. He barely made it there before going into a diabetic coma! “Rob was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after not feeling well over the holiday weekend,”E! News reported. “Once his condition seemed to worsen, he was taken to the doctor to see what was going on. After performing various tests, doctors explained that Rob’s health needs to be a priority. He’s home already. He went [to the hospital] for a little and is fine now. It was a wake up call. Rob’s tests revealed his blood sugar levels were very high, and doctors told him that he needs to lose weight, exercise and dramatically change his diet, or it will get worse.”
