Rob Kardashian just can’t seem to get his life going. Three years after he appeared in what may have been his final episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Rob Kardashian continues to hide from the prying eye of the media, and in the latest report, it has been revealed that he’s refusing to participate in his family’s annual Christmas card photo shoot.

“[Rob Kardashian] is still struggling, he’s made progress but he still isn’t comfortable being seen in public,” a source told Hollywood Life on November 18. “[Rob Kardashian] doesn’t want to be on their Christmas card, he’s said he won’t do it this year, it’s causing a lot of drama.”
Rob Kardashian’s reported Christmas snub comes just weeks after he failed to attend the 60th birthday of his mother, Kris Jenner.
Earlier this month, Jenner celebrated her milestone birthday surrounded by her friends, including Heather McDonald and Melanie Brown, and family, including Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, but sadly, Rob Kardashian was a no-show. Jenner’s 35-year-old boyfriend, Corey Gamble, was also in attendance, along with Kanye West and Kylie’s then-boyfriend Tyga.

Prior to the event, a source told Hollywood Life that Rob Kardashian’s sisters had begged him to be there for their mother on her special day. On November 5, a source revealed the following information in regard to the sisters’ efforts with Rob Kardashian.
“All the girls wants Kris’ party to be a family affair. They absolutely, 100-percent want and need [Rob Kardashian]’s presence. Each of them have called him and told him how much they love him, and how special and equally important it is for him to commit to attend Kris’ shindig.”
Rob Kardashian’s former roommate, Khloe, who he lived with for years up until recently, spoke the longest, according to the site, and during their intense chat, Rob Kardashian spoke about their childhood and some of the funniest moments they shared with their mother growing up.
“[Rob Kardashian’s] been hurting a lot for a myriad of reasons but Khloe reminded him of how strong and brave he is, and told him to remember that he’s a Kardashian and that they always rise to the top!” the source explained.
By the time Rob Kardashian’s conversation with Khloe had ended, she told her little brother she couldn’t wait to see him, but unfortunately, Jenner’s big day came and went, and there was no sign of Rob Kardashian.
Although Rob Kardashian appears to have gone back into hiding after being spotted in mid-October, he was believed to have filmed his Keeping Up with the Kardashians return just months ago. At the time, a source told Us Weekly that Rob Kardashian was ready to return to the E! Network reality show, and to his family, after losing 15 pounds with the help of celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson, a personal chef and several members of his family.
While the magazine claimed Rob Kardashian had already shot scenes for the currently airing season of the show, he has not yet been seen on Season 11 and is not featured in the Season 11 trailer.
Still, according to the source, Rob Kardashian couldn’t turn down the $2 million per year paycheck he was due upon his return to the reality show and is expected to be seen at some point after losing weight and getting to a healthier place after struggling with depression for about three years.
