Apparently, Rob Kardashian is the source of a lot of stress for the rest of the Kardashian Klan.
Over the past couple of years, the reality star’s rapid and dramatic weight gain has either been the cause or a symptom of what a source close to the family previously revealed might be depression. Apparently, he’s been really weird about socializing, and his appearance and depression has kept him away from major (and awesome-sounding) events like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding. So, Kris staged an intervention on the newest Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which went, uh, pretty poorly. People reports:
When the interventionists arrived at Khloé’s home, where Rob has been living, he shut himself away in his room and called Khloé, upset over the intrusion. She broke down into tears, begging him to accept help. “Do you think it’s fair to do this to me? …. I’ve been through this how many times?” she asked, likely referencing her failed relationship with Lamar Odom, which became strained amid his alleged drug abuse and refusal to rehabilitate.
“It’s not fair for you guys to do this to me all the time. It’s not fair. Just accept the f—ing help,” she said, crying.
When he continued to refuse, however, Kim, 34, insisted that the family start doling out tough love, calling their constant allowances for Rob “pathetic,” adding, “We’re not gonna cater to him anymore, but it has to be all of us.”
Kim urged Khloé to kick Rob out of the house and to cut him off. “We’ve done every other way,” she said. “There’s no other way to do it.”
When Khloé’s attempt at tough love drove Rob farther away, he called Kris, who acted as his enabler by allowing him to stay at her house.
“I cry myself to sleep literally every night worrying about [Rob],” said Kris. “It’s breaking my heart.”
The attempted intervention shown on Sunday’s KUWTK may have been the first, but apparently the family is committed to getting Rob help, on national television of course. Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays (9 p.m. ET) on E!…will you watch this season or do you think this is too much, even for the Kardashians?
