Rob Kardashian has a new weight loss strategy — taking a hike.
The famous reality star sibling was seen hiking in Culver City near Los Angeles on Thursday as he tried to shed more pounds. TMZ noted that the the former Dancing With The Stars finalist and Keeping Up With The Kardashians star opted for black athletic gear during the hike to get a “slimming look.”
For Rob Kardashian, weight loss has been a sensitive subject that’s gotten him into some trouble in the past. Back in March he was leaving a Los Angeles gym when a photographer, Andra Viak, snapped a picture of Rob shirtless.
Rob, who is reportedly sensitive about his weight, got into a spat with the photographer. He allegedly assaulted Viak and ended up getting charged with battery and petty theft related to the spat.
Viak claimed in a lawsuit that Kardashian ripped the memory card from her camera. She also says Rob Kardashian struck her in the face during he scuffle.
In court documents obtained by E! News, Vaik claimed she was “struck in the face and suffered severe contusions on her arm and chest, as well as damage to her property” as a result of Kardashian’s “violent use of force.”
After the charges were first filed, Andra Vaik’s lawyer toldTMZ:
“While this case is still in the preliminary stage, it is clear from our investigation that Robert Kardashian’s violent behavior and his use of force towards Ms. Vaik was completely unjustified.”
Rob claimed that his response was reasonable given that Vaik was trespassing in the gym’s garage.
After Rob Kardashian was charged he was released on his own recognizance, though the prosecution asked for $21,000 bail to be set. He pleaded not guilty to the charges this month.
After the trouble he got into leaving the gym, it seems Rob Kardashian is trying a safer weight loss approach.
