Rob Kardashian has been a target for media scrutiny for quite some time.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has reportedly gained more than 50 pounds over the past year, and he’s not too thrilled about being seen in public.
Back in May, he made his first public appearance to attend his sister Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Yeezus rapper Kanye West. Unfortunately, the 27-year-old reality TV star turned heads for all the wrong reasons.
The media immediately went to work pointing out his noticeable weight gain. Rob reportedly opted not to even attend the wedding because he was embarrassed about how he looked.
Now, he’s reportedly tired of being the subject of ridicule. According to E! Online, he’s prepared to make the changes needed to shed the extra pounds.
He’s expressed that he hates being big and has enlisted the help of his sister Khloé Kardashian for moral support with workouts and clean eating. An inside source close to Rob recently spoke with E! News about his plans to achieve his weight loss goal.
“He hates being big, but he gained all that weight from being depressed,” the source said. “He wants to lose over 50 lbs.”
However, health and fitness aren’t the only areas of his life he’s looking to improve. Rob’s also turned his attention toward new business ventures and career advancement.
“He’s also planning to attend more events and look into new business ventures,” the source revealed. Although Rob has several areas of improvement he’s focused on, he also understands that greatness takes time. “He’s taking it slow and feeling great,” the source explained.
The Arthur George sock line owner also has a strong support system. It’s no secret that he and his sister Khloé are extremely close. With his personal issues and her tumultuous marriage to NBA player Lamar Odom, the two have weathered several storms together. Of course, she’s there to help and motivate her younger brother!
“Rob and Khloé have always been tight. And Khloé has been there 100 percent for Rob since he’s been going through hard times,” the source said. “Also, Rob and Lamar were really close, and after Khloé and Lamar split, it was so hard for Rob. He felt like he lost a brother that he had always wanted. Khloé knows how depressed he’s been and is probably closer with him than any of her sisters.”
Hopefully Rob and Khloé will continue to support each other and move forward!
