Rob Kardashian continues to steer clear of cameras — even ones held by his family. Weeks ago, while celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday with his family, including mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian, and Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Khloe recorded footage of the family bash, but unfortunately, she wasn’t able to include Rob Kardashian in her short clip.
On December 8, OK! Magazine revealed details of Khloe’s Thanksgiving movie clip, confirming Rob Kardashian was not seen. In addition, the magazine pointed out that it’s becoming harder and harder to believe Jenner’s claim that Rob Kardashian was part of the celebration at all!

At the end of last month, after Rob Kardashian was left out of the Kardashian/Jenner Thanksgiving photo, leading fans to believe he did not participate in the holiday, Jenner spoke to Maria Menounos on her Sirius XM talk show, via E! News, claiming that while Rob Kardashian wasn’t seen in photos of her family’s holiday festivities, he did make a brief appearance.
“[Rob Kardashian] lives with Khloe. So he was around,” Jenner told Menounos. “And then went over to a buddy’s house. He’s doing alright. You know, he’s doing his best. He’s not as into being on camera as much as the rest of us. But he’s working on himself. He’s going to be OK.”
Although Jenner claimed to Menounos that Rob Kardashian was living with his older sister, Khloe, several outlets had previously claimed Rob Kardashian recently moved out of the home and back into his old apartment, where he was living before Khloe and Lamar Odom’s split in 2013.

Last month, after photos surfaced on X17 Online of Jenner visiting Rob Kardashian at his Los Angeles apartment, Hollywood Life claimed he had moved out in an effort to regain his own identity. However, after Jenner’s claim that he never moved out of Khloe’s home, it’s hard to say what’s really going on.
Regardless of where Rob Kardashian is living, his role on Keeping Up With The Kardashians appears to be obsolete. After leaving the show in 2012, Rob Kardashian has continued to pack on pounds, and some reports claim he’s gained over 100 pounds in the last couple of years. In one particular photo, shared by People Magazine, Rob Kardashian was seen at a Los Angeles In-N-Out Burger, looking to be nearly unrecognizable due to his excessive weight gain.
Although Rob Kardashian hasn’t appeared on Keeping Up With The Kardashians for a few years now, he has been spoken of by members of his family, who wish he would come out of hiding and reclaim the life he once enjoyed. However, things with Rob Kardashian appear to be more complex than most could understand, as he’s allegedly been suffering from depression for years.
In April of this year, Jenner was seen expressing her concern for her son during an episode of their family’s reality show.
“I cry myself to sleep literally every night worrying about [Rob Kardashian],” she said, according to a People Magazine report. “It’s breaking my heart.”
“[Rob Kardashian] is very against therapy and any kind of rehab,” a source close to the family told People Magazine in March, claiming they’ve attempted several interventions. “But his family will continue to push for him to get help until he does.”
