Rob Kardashian has been struggling for quite some time. A few years ago, Kardashian had a very public breakup with Rita Ora that led to accusations of cheating, neglect, and them supposedly planning a family together. It was tough for Kardashian that she didn’t want to acknowledge the relationship in public, as she wanted to be perceived as a single lady.
But when they broke up, Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Rob Kardashian revealed that he had been trying to get her pregnant because they wanted to start a family. When they broke up, Kardashian was left completely alone to defend himself and many signal this as the beginning of his changing attitude.
According to a new Radar Online report, Rob Kardashian was actually forced into rehab by his mother, Kris Jenner. Sadly, the experience didn’t last long, as Rob had a friend pick him up and he disappeared for three days without informing his family about his whereabouts.
“Kris took Rob to a facility in Malibu last year at night for a tour. She did it at night, so the press wouldn’t know about it,” a source has revealed, adding, “She assured him that there was no pressure to enroll, but Rob felt ambushed and got very angry.”
Of course, Khloe Kardashian’s efforts to get Kardashian into rehab were documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. This would have happened after Kris Jenner’s attempts to get her son some help. Perhaps Khloe feels a bit guilty, as her divorce from Lamar Odom has also taken a huge toll on Kardashian. Rob and Lamar were very close.
“Khloe wants Rob to go to Betty Ford because of the stellar reputation of the facility. She knows Rob can’t be forced to go, so until that time, all she can do is support him,” the source has revealed, adding, “The family wants Rob to go to rehab, and feel it’s the only thing that will get him back on track. It’s just a very, very sad situation.”
Kim Kardashian recently spoke out about Rob’s behavior while addressing Bruce Jenner’s decision to become a woman. Even though Kardashian had compared his sister to a psychotic killer, she had nothing but nice things to say.
“I don’t necessarily think it’s because of the fame. I think it’s been circumstances in his life that he just really hasn’t dealt with,” Kim recently revealed on the TODAY show, having her mother add, “I feel like if I don’t help him do something drastic, that he’s gonna die. He’s gained over 100 pounds in the last year…He doesn’t go out of the house. He’s missed Christmas, he missed Kim’s wedding.”
Even though Rob’s family is speaking out about him in the press, he doesn’t really respond too much. But he did fire back at his own mother, saying that she is the one who need professional help, according to the Inquisitr. Rob claims that he is working hard on himself.
