Kardashian Gone Girl isn’t a phrase you see every day, but it’s taken over the web this week after Rob Kardashian–brother to those famous sisters–reportedly posted a photo of the lead female character in the film and attached a strange caption to it.
The photo–of actress Rosamund Pike as she appears at the end of the film, covered in blood–appeared on Rob’s Instagram account over the weekend, along with the caption, “This is my sister kim , the bitch from Gone Girl,,,” Fans and followers of his account seemed unsure as to how to take the pic, and now every other photo has been deleted from the page.
Kim Kardashian hasn’t commented on the incident, although according to CNN, Rob reportedly stopped following his family members on Instagram over the weekend and then apparently changed his mind. Because all other photos on the account disappeared, some are wondering if the Gone Girl photo is the work of a hacker, but according to HollywoodLife, Rob and Kim have a history of turbulence in their relationship, with Rob feeling left out as she, Khloe and Kourtney dominate headlines and advance their careers.
Khloe Kardashian says that Rob is suffering from depression and has withdrawn quite a bit from the ever-watchful eye of the media, especially recently.
“I just feel, especially over the last year, Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety. He’s definitely not at his happiest place that he once was, and I know he can get to that happy place and he will,” she told Wonderwall.com
According to E! News, a source close to the family says there’s a very simple explanation for the photo.
“He’s just being crazy and he thinks it’s funny. He can just be a little bizarre with his humor.”
