Though he spent years avoiding the public eye, Rob Kardashian now views his reclusive years with sorrow and regret. While speaking about this dark time of his life, Rob admitted he feels horrible about missing out on so many important family events.
While Kim Kardashian, 35, Kylie Jenner, 19, and other members of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family were living life in front of the cameras (either on television or on their phones) Rob, 29, was busy retreating from the spotlight. “I wasn’t happy in my own skin,” Rob said about his reclusive years while speaking with PEOPLE magazine, revealing why he was once considered the “invisible Kardashian.”
Rob admitted that while he struggled with his self-esteem and weight issues, shying away from the public – and from his family – was not the best move. “I missed out on so many things,” he said with regret. “I missed Christmases and birthday and vacations. I definitely retreated.”
One of the biggest events that Rob missed was the glamorous wedding between Kim and Kanye West, 39. Rob was all set to attend and he even made it to Paris for his suit fitting. However, at 300 lbs., Rob said he “was very unhappy with the person I saw” in the mirror, and with so many photographers following him around, Rob decided to skip out on Kim’s big day.
That won’t happen again – Rob has promised that! Ever since he turned his life around, thanks to help from his fiancée Blac Chyna, 28, Kardashian brother won’t miss another milestone again. “Now I want to see everybody in my family every chance I get,” he said. “You never know what is going to happen tomorrow, and I don’t want to do that to my mom [Kris Jenner].”
Kris, Kim and the rest of Rob’s family better get ready to seeing more of him and Blac – and their babies. Yes, babies. While Rob and Blac are expecting their first bundle of joy, she revealed that Rob wants to have about three or four more kids! It seems like Penelope Disick, 4, North West, 3 and baby Saint are going to have plenty of playmates!
