Rob Kardashian appeared on social media on December 5, the day his nephew, Saint West, was born, but rather than congratulate Saint’s parents, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the reclusive former reality star chose to instead mention his youngest sister Kylie’s lip kits.
Although Rob Kardashian didn’t exactly say that he and Kim were feuding, they have been at odds in the past, and his failure to mention the birth of her son seemed to hint at trouble in paradise.

On December 11, Radar Online reported news of Rob Kardashian’s alleged snub, claiming Kim was upset that he hadn’t mentioned her, or been to visit Saint at the hospital. In the report, it was noted Rob Kardashian was the only member of the Kardashian/Jenner family who hadn’t reached out to her after Saint’s birth to offer their congratulations. The site also noted a March Instagram post as a major moment in their ongoing feud.
In March of this year, Rob Kardashian took to his Instagram page, where he compared his sister Kim to Rosamund Pike’s character, a crazed murderess, in Gone Girl.
“Although [Rob Kardashian] will always be there for his nieces and nephews, not much has changed between him and Kim,” a source told Radar. “They will never be the same since the whole Gone Girl incident. That really destroyed them.”
While Rob Kardashian’s ongoing feud with Kim made it no surprise that he hadn’t immediately traveled to be at her side after birth, a second report, via Gossip Cop, claims the sock designer eventually did visit Kim.
“[Rob Kardashian] has met Saint and has visited Kim on multiple occasions since his birth,” the source revealed.

In addition to his ongoing drama with Kim, or perhaps their now-ended feud, a source recently claimed Rob Kardashian was refusing to appear in his family’s Christmas card. On December 13, Youth Health Magazine reported news of Rob Kardashian’s salary demands, claiming he was acting like a diva, and demanding he be paid $50,000 for his participation.
“[Rob Kardashian] is still struggling, he’s made progress but he still isn’t comfortable being seen in public. [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 has been struggling with issues of weight gain and depression for the last few years. After quitting Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2012, Rob Kardashian began living a more private life, and has rarely been seen in public. In fact, in 2015 alone, Rob Kardashian has been photographed just a handful of times.
While Rob Kardashian no longer appears on his family’s reality series, he has been mentioned a number of times since his 2012 exit, usually by his concerned family members, who often speak of their frustrations with his mental state and failure to get help for depression.
“[Rob Kardashian] was always someone who was very athletic growing up, and he’s gained over 100 pounds in the last year,” Kris Jenner revealed to a life coach, according to a report by Entertainment Tonight in April. “He doesn’t want to participate. He doesn’t go out of the house. He’s missed Christmas, he’s missed Kim’s wedding.”
Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 11 is currently airing on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on the E! Network. So far, Rob Kardashian has not appeared on the new installment.
