Apparently things aren’t going so well for Rob Kardashian these days. He hasn’t been seen out in public much in the last two years after becoming depressed and gaining 100 lbs. Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian have both posted supportive messages for their brother recently.
A source explained:
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.
“The family, especially Khloé, is very much there for him but it has to be his own journey to figure out.”
I wonder if some of this is at least complicated by being part of a family that is so high-profile?
Khloe posted this message for her brother on Instagram:

Kim Kardashian has remained silent. Then again, she seems to be supporting more of a “tough love” approach. Rob left her wedding festivities in tears before her big day a couple of years ago.
Khloe had this to say about supporting her brother through his struggles:
He’s such a great guy. That’s also what’s so infuriating. He’s charming, charismatic, everything. But I’m like, where is your will to live? Where is your will to live life? Let’s be around people!
“I’ve been working on my patience. I’ve been really trying. But I have my moments and I do snap … I can’t win life for Rob. I have to wait until [he’s] ready to do it for himself.”
Depression isn’t easy to deal with: hopefully Rob will get some help and be able to turn things around.
