Rob Kardashian is lashing out at his “haters” this week, making it clear that he hears the criticism of his weight gain and doesn’t care what they have to say.
The more reclusive brother of the spotlight-hogging Kardashian sisters posted a picture of his younger self to Instagram, saying that he is well aware of his struggles with weight gain.
“Last throwback of the day and yes I’m fat now so yall haters can literally suck d***,” Rob Kardashian wrote alongside a black and white photo that showed him shirtless and looking very muscular.
But Rob wasn’t done, posting another picture that had a more motivational tone.
“Last throwback of the night before I go play some fat boy ball!! MOTIVATION,” Rob wrote.
Rob Kardashian has reportedly had a difficult time dealing with his weight gain, and his critics haven’t shied away from pointing it out. Last year, when pictures emerged of Rob on the way to his sister Kim’s wedding, many people took to social media to comment on his much larger size.
I feel so bad for @robkardashian that’s gotta be humiliating to have the media follow your weight gain

I really feel bad for Rob Kardashian. That weight gain is NOT normal. He used to be sexy. — You Not My Dad (@ItsJustArianaaa) May 19, 2014
Rob Kardashian may have problems that run much deeper than just weight gain. Sources say he is also dealing with a substance addiction, and family members are now pushing for him to enter rehab.
“Khloe’s been the one spearheading the entire thing… she wants him to get help,” a source told In Touch, adding that Khloe has tried to get Rob into the Cirque Lodge in Utah, where a number of celebrities have gone for their rehab stints.
But it might be a difficult sell. Rob has already made his feelings known about rehab, saying back in May after hastily leaving sister Kim’s wedding that he doesn’t need help.
“First, I don’t believe in rehab or therapy or anything of that sort and second I’m a grown man and will work on myself when I choose,” Rob said at the time.
But Rob has plenty of support as well. Many people came to his defense this week, including one who wrote, “I’m fat too. Who gives a s—. Chipotle and in n out are the f—ing best…..”
Sources close to the family say Rob Kardashian has stayed out of the public eye for most of the last year as he’s battled self-esteem issues.
