Rob Kardashian has been extremely active on Instagram lately. Although the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was previously known for going weeks at a time without so much as a “peep” on social media, things appear to have changed in the last couple of weeks.

On October 21, Rob Kardashian shared a photo of himself eating with sister Kim, along with the caption, “Happy birthday Kimburrrrr, thanks for always feeding me cheese fries all day baby.”
For the last couple of years, Rob Kardashian has been infamously struggling with his weight. In fact, he has put on so much weight in recent years that he’s actually gone nearly into hiding, only appearing publicly a number of times since the start of 2014.
During episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, members of Rob Kardashian’s family, including Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian, have expressed their concern for Rob Kardashian, but so far, he doesn’t appear to have made much headway when it comes to his weight loss and dealing with depression. He has, however, remained extremely close with his sister, Khloe, who is currently dealing with the fallout from her husband Lamar Odom’s overdose.
“Lamar Odom has undergone 2 emergency surgeries, and it has taken a toll on his mind,” TMZ reported on October 22. “The procedures involved chest issues, but we do not know if it’s connected to his lungs or heart… The surgeries have put Lamar in ‘a fragile mental state.’ ”
At times, the report claimed, Odom is “very upset,” and due to his mental state, doctors have banned all visitors, aside from Khloe, from entering his hospital room as Odom “deals with the immediate physical and mental issues.”
Rob Kardashian does not appear to have visited Odom since he was hospitalized. That said, he was seen behind the wheel of Khloe’s Range Rover on Monday, just before she and Odom arrived to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood, California.

Rob Kardashian’s brother-in-law was hospitalized on Tuesday, October 13, after he was found unconscious by two staff members at a brothel in Pahrump, Nevada. As TMZ reported, Odom was “fighting for his life” when he arrived to a hospital after being found with mucus running out of his nose and mouth. After paramedics arrived to the facility, where Odom had reportedly been partying since the prior Saturday, Odom was stabilized and taken to a nearby hospital, where he was intubated, indicating he could not breathe on his own. He was then transported to a second facility, the Sunrise Hospital, where he was deemed to be in a coma and several of his organs were failing.
During his time living with Khloe and Odom, Rob Kardashian grew extremely close with Odom, whom he refers to as his “brother.” On Khloe & Lamar, the couple’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians spinoff, Rob Kardashian and Odom engaged in what many would refer to as a “bromance.” Their playful behavior with one another was fun to watch, and for two seasons, it continued.
Then, in 2013, when Kardashian and Odom parted ways, Rob Kardashian was said to have been majorly impacted by the split. He had lived with the couple for years, so for Rob Kardashian, it was almost like he too was going through a heartbreaking split in having to say goodbye to his close friend. Now, however, that could change since Kardashian and Odom have called off their divorce.
