Khloe Kardashian has once again reached out to her kid brother, Rob Kardashian, in order to show her support for his ongoing struggles.
It’s no secret that Khloe has been Rob’s number one supporter the past few years as he has struggled with his weight problems, depression, and reported substance abuse issues. But as we have seen, Rob is slowly but surely making his comeback! According to the Mirror, Khloe took to social media to post a photo of herself and Rob with an endearing message for him:
I’ll never let you carry more than you can hold my sweet brother. Almost home kiddo! http://t.co/6VPWUoGGUp

While the photo was originally posted to Khloe’s Instagram account, she also shared it on her Twitter account. Soon after doing so, Rob came back with his own reply:

Despite all attempts to stay out of the lime light, Rob’s struggles have been nothing but public. While he kept a low profile on social media, and all but disappeared from the family’s reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Rob Kardashian’s personal business became very public in June after he was spotted not only boarding a plane to sister Kim’s wedding, but shortly after, returning home before the wedding even started.
Rob began first making news again as he was photographed heading off to Kim’s wedding to rapper Kanye West. While he tried to keep a low profile, his significant weight gain made him the paparazzi’s next target. Rumors quickly began spreading about the Kardashian’s weight gain, and before those could even begin to settle down, Rob was, one again, photographed at the airport, this time arriving home only hours before his sister was scheduled to walk down the aisle. From there, rumors of family tensions began floating around, some which have been proven true thanks to this season’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
In the recent episodes of the show, the Kardashian-Jenner family can be seen criticizing how Rob has been dealing with his stress and emotional difficulties. At one point during the family’s vacation in Thailand, a few of the Kardashians stated that Rob isn’t working hard enough to work through his issues. Sister Kim even stated that she uses the “tough love” method when dealing with Rob, and went so far as to say that Khloe “babies” their brother.
According to Hollywood Life, Khloe Kardashian has felt incredibly guilty for Rob’s depression, so it’s endearing to see that she is still supporting her brother, both in private and in public.
