Rob Kardashian Receives Support From Kanye West In Quest To Lose Weight

Rob Kardashian is currently on a quest to lose weight, a mission that will require a lot of hard work and plenty of support from his family.

The world couldn’t stop talking about Kardashian’s size when a photographer snapped Rob’s pic during his trip to Kim and Kanye’s wedding. People were totally shocked by how much weight the reality TV veteran had gained in recent months, and the amount of negative attention his waistline received prompted him to hit the gym.

According to Perez Hilton, Rob Kardashian is getting some words of encouragement from his new brother-in-law, Kanye West. Since the guys are now family, the rapper reportedly reached out to Rob to give him some moral support. Every little bit helps when you’re trying to ditch those unwanted pounds, that’s for sure.

A source has all the details about the alleged encounter.

“The whole family is pulling for him. Even [Kanye West] has been reaching out to him more and showing he cares. They are all his biggest cheerleaders right now.”

The insider added that Khloe is there to help him through the process, as well.

“Khloé knows how depressed he’s been and is probably closer with him than any of her sisters. Rob also helped Khloé through the divorce with Lamar. He was really there for her more than anyone.”

Hollywood Life reports that Rob Kardashian is pretty depressed about his weight gain, and is completely dedicated to losing weight in a healthy way. However, getting out of the funk is easier said than done, and sources claim that Rob is still in a pretty bad place.

“He was embarrassed to go to the wedding in the first place because of his weight gain and to be ridiculed by Kim and basically rejected has put him over the edge…. The Kardashian family prides themselves on looking absolutely fabulous and the fact that they would choose looks over family is simply appalling.”

The Inquisitr previously reported that Rob Kardashian wants to shed around 50 pounds in the near future. To make this happen, Rob is reportedly working with personal trainer Gunnar Peterson to make sure he loses the weight — and keeps it off for good.
