Kim Kardashian and the Paris wedding that everyone is talking about has even gotten brother Rob to come out of hiding and it is obvious the 27-year-old is still struggling with his weight gain. Rob Kardashian and Kris Jenner were both seen together at LAX airport in Los Angeles as the two-headed off for Kim’s third try at wedding vows.
Rob has been battling with personal demons for quite some time now. It first being noticed when the 27-year-old was gaining a lot of weight during the TV hit series Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Rob was binge eating and mother, Kris was beginning to get worried for the black sheep of the family. Rob also displayed some serious issues with depression when the Kardashian clan started to do some family therapy. Of course it cannot be easy trying to make a stand when surrounded by some very high maintenance sisters. The reality show has always touched upon on how Rob was always trying to branch out and do his own thing and try to make a name for himself, other than being attached to one of his more famous sisters. Like most train wrecks, it is only apparent after the fact and Rob’s downward spiral seemed to get lost in the shuffle of the Kardashian woman’s lives.
With Rob keeping a very low profile, many speculated that the sock designer was going through weight issues and emotional stress and was seeking professional help. A source told US Magazine that Rob’s weight gain could be linked with a thyroid problem, along with sessions of binge eating. Last month the troubled celebrity tweeted, “No one will ever understand how much it hurts.” Rob then deleted the tweet and has been silent on social media since.
Rob has removed himself from the Keeping Up With The Kardashian series and was not present at the family’s vacation to Thailand which was filmed recently. While it is obvious to many fans of the show that Rob has been depressed lately, reports suggest that the 27-year-old has gained about 100 pounds.
Though Rob has reportedly been working out with Gunnar Peterson, who is also sister Khloe’s trainer, the television personality has yet to lose the weight. Family, friends and fans are all concerned for Rob’s well-being and prayers are going out for Rob to get on the right track.
Rob was photographed wearing a black t-shirt and black sweatpants with a blue baseball cap and yellow and white sneakers. Kris Jenner dressed up more than casual comfortable for the long flight, wearing a cowel neck black gown and black leather heels. Jenner looked happy to be out with son, Rob as the two made their way through LAX among the paparazzi.
With Kim Kardashian’s third wedding just days away, Rob braved the paparazzi even though struggling with his shocking weight gain. Stepping out with Mom may have given Rob some inner strength to make himself visible to the public as the television personality has made a point of not being seen, anywhere.
