It has been six years since Adrienne Bailon called it quits on her relationship to Rob Kardashian, who was not only blindsided by the split but devastated by the loss of his best friend. Bailon is undoubtedly the only woman who has made the 28-year-old feel good about himself, having professed his love for the former Cheetah Girls star endlessly in interviews during their time together.
It makes it even more upsetting to then consider the fact that after Bailon ended the relationship, Kardashian more or less started to spiral out of control when it came to the ladies. Having often boasted about the girls he bedded on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the socialite became more of a jerk than the loveable boyfriend fans knew him for.
2012 quickly approached, and once again, the Arthur George sock designer was seeing yet another woman. This time, it was none other than Rita Ora. The British-songstress dated Kardashian for several months before their relationship would take on a very sour ending; so appallingly shocking that it would cause media headlines for weeks. Kardashian accused Ora of cheating on him with more than 25 men during their romance, a claim which Ora strongly denies.
Whether it was true or not, the breakup was so painful for the 28-year-old that he would begin consuming food as a way to block out his feelings. Months after the couple had gone their separate ways, it was evident that the socialite had packed on a couple of pounds — the weight that one usually gains when going through a deep breakup.
And while many fans would have expected Kris Jenner’s son to bounce back and make a strong recovery from his somewhat of a downfall, he continued to gain weight over the course of months, which has now turned into years. Kardashian is said to be so “embarrassed” with his appearance that he even refuses to interact with his own family when they invite him to fun trips all around the world. Sources say that even his depression has worsened due to his weight gain, which reports claim has most definitely surpassed over 90lbs.
Keeping all of this in mind, it is understandable to then hear that Kardashian is looking back on his life and realises that the only person who he has ever felt worthy to was Bailon. The Real host, who always remained faithful to the reality star, considered the TV-personality someone she could see herself settling down with. Hectic work schedules in different countries were believed to have torn their relationship apart in the end, but all bad stories tend to have a happy ending, right?
For one, Bailon just recently confirmed that she had parted ways with longtime fiance, Lenny Santiago, confirming that their breakup was mutual. This, of course, means that she is single. Secondly, Bailon’s talk-show The Real happens to be taped in Los Angeles, making this the perfect opportunity for Kardashian.
“Rob has always followed Adrienne’s career,” Celeb Dirty Laundry reveals. ”He definitely heard about her break-up, and now that he is getting back to his old self, he will probably reach out to her.
He has been telling his siblings how badly he wants to change his unhealthy lifestyle; his fitness would be his main priority, but at the same time, the secluded son of the late Robert Kardashian wants to find love again. And this time, it has to be with someone he knows will treat him right. Someone he wants to marry, settle down and have children with.
Sister, Kim Kardashian, has recently admitted that her brother was slowly but surely getting the hang of a strict fitness routine, convinced that the 28-year-old is destined to get his body back — and maybe even the love of his life. He may be making baby steps, but progressing forward is always better than standing still in the same position as yesterday.
