Rob Kardashian’s return to the public eye ultimately ended in ridicule last weekend.
The reason? The reality TV star apparently gained some weight, which is always a bad thing when there are so many people who can’t wait to tear you down.
Folks who want to read some really cruel and judgmental comments about Kardashian need only spend a few minutes digging through Twitter. Since everyone on the social media site is clearly thin and beautiful, they didn’t waste any time ripping poor Rob to shreds; it’s no wonder that the guy is reportedly determined to shed a few of those unwanted pounds.
According to the New York Daily News, Rob immediately got in contact with his personal trainer after skipping Kim and Kanye’s wedding last weekend. However, it’s unclear if all the ridicule he received during his trip prompted Rob to avoid the ceremony altogether.

Trainer Gunnar Peterson told TMZ that Rob felt too fat to pose with for photos with other members of his family. Instead of sticking around for the wedding and braving the cameras, Kardashian decided it was in his best interest to head back to the US and start losing weight. Peterson said Rob is “lock and loaded” for all the hard work.
Hollywood Life claims the Kardashian family was definitely a little bummed that Rob ultimately decided not to take part in his sister’s big day. An insider reportedly told the website that Khloe was particularly disappointed with her brother’s absence.

Here’s what the anonymous source had to say:
“Khloe’s hurt the most because she wanted her brother to be there, enjoying this special moment with Kim and Kanye and with the entire family. [Khloe] was crying herself trying to convince Rob to stay and not let his sister get to him. She even told him ‘don’t trip’ on what she’s saying but it was not enough.”
Of course, another source said that it was Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s unbearable displays of excess that prompted him to hop a flight back to the United States.
“Rob said he was sickened by Kim and Kanye’s display of wealth and clothes and beauty and called it ‘superficial bulls**t. Kim was p***ed that Rob hadn’t made an effort to drop any weight over the past months. Rob basically equated that to Kim caring about him only for his appearance and he said he’d ‘make life easier’ for her and just leave,” someone else said.
