Rob Kardashian Braces: ‘KUWTK’ Star Sports Braces, Fixing Self-Esteem Issues?

Rob Kardashian has braces — or at least that’s how it looks. According to Mail Online, the 27-year-old reality star appeared to have braces on his teeth on Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Evidently this is part of Rob’s self-esteem boost: Loosing weight and fixing his teeth, which apparently needed fixing.

According to the report:

“The 27-year-old star’s mouth full of metal was clear to see during one scene in the family kitchen where he received inoculations for the family trip to Thailand which he later backed out of.”

Rob Kardashian’s braces caught the attention of many KUWTK viewers. Why? Well, because Rob has really great teeth. If you look at photos of him, his teeth are super white and perfectly straight. Of course those could have been veneers — or maybe his teeth shifted over the past couple of years, who knows?

Rob’s also in the news today for something else. According to The International Business Times, Rob is under fire for posting a photo of his 16-year-old half-sister, Kylie Jenner. The photo was considered inappropriate by people who saw it because Kylie was scantily clad.

“In the photo, Kylie has her mouth open and a somewhat surprised expression on her face. She seems to be wearing a black bra. The caption reads ‘MEN.’ People immediately wrote Rob, calling him a pervert and saying he was trying to ‘pimp out’ his sister. He has since removed the picture, and claimed he was hacked.”

Rob Kardashian hasn’t tweeted about his braces, however. He hasn’t made mention of much, lately. In fact, he deleted all of his tweets other than this one:

Been hacked. Amazing.

The youngest Kardashian has been criticized left and right lately. Unfortunately, Rob has struggled with depression and he has not had an easy time with life in general. He has struggled with his weight, yes, but he has also had a hard time living in the shadows on his older, successful sisters. Fans of Rob really hope that he can get through all of this and turn his life around. Hopefully his family is supporting him — but you never know.

As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Rob has been at war with his mother, Kris Jenner. The momager has apparently been very hard on her only son — and that’s not really helpful. Like, at all.
