Caitlyn Jenner took the stage last night at the ESPY awards to collect the Arthur Ashe courage award. During her speech, she thanked her family, including her children, for their support. However, there was one child missing — Rob Kardashian.
The now-reclusive Rob Kardashian hasn’t been featured in Keeping Up with the Kardashians too much and has skipped out on highly publicized events surrounding his family. He even skipped out on big sister Kim Kardashian’s wedding. That said, what was the reason behind his absence at the ESPYs? He doesn’t seem to have beef with Caitlyn.
While we don’t know why he decided to skip the ceremony, Rob Kardashian did take to Instagram to support another member of his family — his niece. Kardashian posted an adorable photo of his 3-year-old niece Penelope, who is the daughter of Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian.
When he posted the adorable photo of Penelope , he captioned it with, “Hey P! She think she so cool I LOVE HER!” In the photo, Penelope had her head tilted to the side with some pretty cool shades, a stylish striped crop top, and a ballet skirt. Looks like she’s on track to being just as stylish as her family members.
The last time we saw Rob Kardashian out and about, he was captured grabbing some In-N-Out in Los Angeles last month. Other than that, he has hidden himself away, which has been a concern for his mother, Kris Jenner. Back in April, a tearful Kris spoke about her 28-year-old son on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“If I don’t help him do something drastic, he’s going to die. I’m just waiting for this horrible thing to happen and there’s nothing we can do about it.”
She continued, “I have a son, he was the star of track team in high school, he was the star of the basketball team. He took on Dancing With The Stars, he couldn’t put two steps together and came in second place. He was someone who was very athletic and he’s gained over 100 pounds in the last year.”
So far, it doesn’t seem like Rob is losing any weight despite having a personal trainer. In the past, Kris has pointed out that she thinks Rob is having problems with depression.
