Rob Kardashian has been avoiding the spotlight for several months while his family members are still basking in it. Although Rob was never as attention-craving as his sisters and mother, he didn’t necessarily shy away from the cameras either.
Rob was once known for his laid-back attitude and partying, but now he seems withdrawn and even depressed. Rob has been avoiding family functions and public appearances and his family and friends are all worried about him.
Khloe and Rob always appeared to be close, and Khloe is still sticking by Rob’s side while he is dealing with his inner demons. Rob has recently gained a lot of weight and has admitted to being depressed and having problems with drugs and alcohol.
Khloe doesn’t just feel bad about her brother’s problems, she feels guilty about them. On a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe spoke up about her feelings and why she feels so guilty about her brother’s issues.
She told her stepbrother Brody Jenner, “Rob has said, ‘Being in that house, it was so dark, and it made me do dark things.’ It gets to me, it makes me feel bad.”
Brody assured Khloe that Rob’s problems are not her fault, but Khloe said that she feels bad that she didn’t protect him or pay more attention to his issues before they got out of hand.
“I definitely feel guilty, and I don’t care what anyone says. I was not there to protect Rob, I was not even there to protect myself,” she added.
A lot of families struggle to keep it together while filming a reality show. Most of the Kardashians and Jenners seem to be fine with the constant filming and spotlight, but it appears to have taken its toll on Rob and maybe even Khloe.
