Once again, the Kardashian family concern has turned towards only son Rob Kardashian, as his behavior has been even odder than usual, as they are once again trying to get him into rehab. Kardashian is reclusive, but his weight has once again ballooned, and they fear that he is having severe mental health problems.
According to the Inquisitr, Rob Kardashian has had a break from his family scrutiny as they have been focused on the Lamar Odom drama and the birth of Kim's baby, Saint. Now that Odom is about to move to a rehab facility and the baby has been safely delivered, the spotlight is once again back on Rob. Considering how close Lamar and Rob used to be, if he was in better health, he could have Lamar stay with him, as Rob previously lived with Lamar and Khloe for over a year.Radar Online reports that the Kardashian machine is now focused on getting Rob Kardashian into in-patient care. The entire family is terrified of how he is living.
"Rob has gone off the rails again," the insider said. "He is, once again, out of control."
"According to a separate source, stepmother Caitlyn Jenner, 66, "has been saying she really feels like Rob needs to go into rehab."
Friends say he was doing better when the family focused on other things, like Kim and Lamar, but they are back to him in force.
"Nobody knows what to do anymore because Rob will not even leave the house. He seems really bad off and everyone is really worried," the insider told Radar.Hollywood Life says that Rob Kardashian continues to suffer with severe depression and can't get better on his own.
"The KUWTK star began shielding himself from the public eye after gaining 100 pounds and dealing with the effects of depression. Now, after years of watching Rob suffer, his fellow family members are beginning to feel the effects of his pain."
The Kardashian family feels helpless as they don't know how to help him, as he is an adult and needs to want help himself.
"Rob is still struggling and it makes the family sad. He deals with depression, weight issues and low self-esteem, but that's been going on for a long time," a source recently told People.People asked the question "Where was Rob Kardashian for the family Thanksgiving photo?" Although he refused to be in the photo, he was with the family for Thanksgiving, as he has moved back in with Khloe reportedly.
"Though he wasn't pictured in the 'blended family' holiday portrait everyone shared on social media, mom Kris Jenner revealed during SiriusXM's Conversations with Maria Menounos on Tuesday that her son was indeed there for the family celebration, which was hosted by Khloé Kardashian, 31."
Kris Jenner felt the need to defend him but says he is working on himself -- he just doesn't like the cameras.
"He's doing alright. You know, he's doing his best," Kris said. "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 okay."
Jenner says that she would love to see Rob Kardashian back on social media, but he will come back in his own time.
