Rob Kardashian’s outing in Los Angeles comes just days after he shared a new Instagram post with his followers, revealing he was praying nonstop for his “brother,” Lamar Odom.

Rob Kardashian is typically quite silent and reclusive, so seeing him surface twice in one week, although the first sighting was on social media, is pretty major. For years, Rob Kardashian has struggled with depression and weight gain, and for many months he has practically been in hiding. While he used to be one of the stars of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, he has steered clear of the cameras for the last couple of seasons, at least for the most part, choosing instead to keep to himself.
Although it is unclear what prompted Rob Kardashian to leave home on Monday, it may have had something to do with the recent news of Odom being transferred via medical helicopter from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. According to a People Magazine report on October 20, Odom is currently being treated in the ICU at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

On October 19, TMZ shared photos of Odom leaving the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas in a helicopter, and revealed he was accompanied by Rob Kardashian’s sister, Khloe. The site also reported that the estranged couple had left to Las Vegas at 5:30 p.m.
Below are more details shared by TMZ.
“Lamar has numerous unresolved medical issues. We believe he will be admitted to an L.A. area medical facility for further treatment. Odom is expected to survive, but doctors have cautioned his family there will be some permanent damage, though the extent is unclear.”
Rob Kardashian has been close with Odom for the last several years due to his marriage to Khloe. However, Rob Kardashian was more than Odom’s brother-in-law, he was also his longtime roommate, having lived with the couple for years during their marriage.
Now that Odom is in Los Angeles with his family, including Khloe and Rob Kardashian, Hollywood Life claims Khloe is going above and beyond for her estranged husband, even turning her home into a treatment center.
“While Lamar is doing great and showing all the possible signs of improvement, Khloe knows the hard work is ahead. Doctors have told her that Lamar’s going to need an extensive about of rehabilitation and she’s preparing for that by turning her home into a rehab center.”
Meanwhile, Rob Kardashian’s younger sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, are in New York City, Odom’s hometown. Below is what Hollywood Life revealed of their visit to the east coast.
“Kendall and Kylie are likely in town to attend the Balmain x H&M bash — Kendall models for the brand — but, interestingly, it looks like they also spent some time in Lamar’s hometown. The 18-year-old shared a Snapchat video with a location filter for Queens on the evening of Oct. 19, although it’s unclear if they stayed around to do anything, or if they were just driving through.”
Rob Kardashian shared a photo of himself and Odom last week after hearing about his medical crisis, but since then, he has returned to his online silence.
