Rob Kardashian has been living his life away from the spotlight for the last few years, and judging by a recent Instagram post, his sister, Khloe, may have had enough of his reclusive ways. Following Rob Kardashian’s diabetes diagnosis and years of depression and weight gain, Khloe shared a message that features comments about a “broken person.”
“A girl once told me to be careful when trying to fix a broken person,” Khloe shared in her Instagram post. “For you may cut yourself on their shattered pieces.”
According to a report by Us Weekly on January 12, Khloe’s post may have been aimed at Rob Kardashian, Lamar Odom, or someone completely separate.
Since leaving Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2012, Rob Kardashian has been steadily gaining weight, and in early 2015, his mother, Kris Jenner, cited a 100-pound weight gain during an episode of the show. During the same season, Jenner admitted to being afraid for her son, who had clearly embarked on an unhealthy lifestyle.
While Rob Kardashian has grown distant from the public eye and rarely leaves home, his relationship with Khloe seems solid. Despite her recent post on Instagram, she and Rob Kardashian have lived together for years, and she often speaks of her hopes for her younger sibling.

Around the holidays, Rob Kardashian was rushed to the hospital after complaining of stomach pains. After undergoing several test, doctors determined he was diabetic. According to a December 2015 report by TMZ, Rob Kardashian hadn’t been seen for six months leading up to his hospitalization in Los Angeles.

According to a second report, Rob Kardashian was the target of an intervention before he was hospitalized and diagnosed with diabetes. The event aired on a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“We didn’t mean to film [it] and it just happened. We filmed an intervention that aired… not so much like a sit-down and this blah, blah, blah, it was like over the phone and it was just like that’s when the time happened and we happened to be filming and we just needed to really address a lot of stuff with Rob,” Khloe told E! News last week. “And it came to be that I’m an enabler because I baby him too much but I can’t kick my brother out, that’s never gonna happen.”
Rob Kardashian has been living with Khloe for years, and when he first moved in with his sister, he was seen on episodes of her spinoff, Khloe & Lamar. Then, after the show and Khloe’s marriage came to an end, Khloe moved into Rob Kardashian’s home before getting them a new home in Los Angeles.
Continuing to E! News, Khloe acknowledged her brother’s recent health scare, claiming she hoped it served as a wake-up call.
“I think Rob’s health scare really again, leaving that in 2015 all the bad stuff, 2016 I think is gonna be a really positive great year. And I think that health scare hopefully rattled Rob a little bit and maybe woke him up… I know it’s only what January 7 or 8, it’s only eight days of this year but I think I’ve seen such a great transformation just mentally right now. So I hope that sticks. Again it’s only been a week, but I hope that sticks and I’m always praying and rooting for Rob.”
“I’m very hopeful,” she continued. “We gotta get Rob Kardashian back out here doing his thing. We all miss Rob, he’s the best.”
