Kim Kardashian has always supported her brother Robert Kardashian, but when he didn’t show up for her wedding in Italy two months ago and claimed his absence was due to weight and depression issues, Kim is not sympathetic. According to the June 20 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s (see full episode here!), Kim and the rest of the Kardashian family are tired to reaching out to Rob to provide support and get him into rehab, but Rob isn’t interested and insists that he can get help when he wants. Rob Kardashian is reportedly addicted to both codeine and marijuana. Recent photos have show Rob in an overweight and drugged state.
On the way to vacation with Kim and Khloe Kardashian in Thailand, Rob apparently didn’t show up at the airport. In the KUWTK episode, his sister Khloe is so worried about Rob that she almost misses her flight. However, Rob’s other sister – the lovely and beautiful Kim Kardashian wasn’t responding to any of Rob’s antics.
In the episode Kim opens up about her brothers struggle with addiction and depression – she says “We’ve all been here to offer him help and he won’t take it, so I don’t have sympathy. I think I’m just more of the tough love kind of person,” she later went on to tell the camera. “My personality is like, ‘All right, you complain, you don’t like it, get up and do something about it.’”
The transformation of Robert Kardashian is very easy to see – just look at these before and after pictures.
What do you think about Kim’s reaction to Rob? It’s definitely a side of Kim we rarely see – her tough love side. Evidently Robert Kardashian and Kanye West are good friends, so it is probably only a matter of time before we hear from Kanye. Best of luck Rob in your journey!
