Kris Jenner’s fears over her son Rob came to light in the latest episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The Kardashian matriarch appears to finally be at the end of her rope when it comes to Rob and decided that an intervention is in order and enlists the help of an expert.
It was during the family meeting that she voiced her fears about Rob’s weight gain and depression to an “expert” (whose face, it must be pointed out, is never seen nor his credentials ever mentioned).
According to Kris, the 28-year-old Rob used to be so athletic but has ballooned to more than 100 pounds in the last year. He also has become a recluse – withdrawing from his family, not attending family events (he was notably a no-show during Kim’s wedding to Kanye West) and not responding to calls and letters from his mom and sisters.
“I can’t take it anymore. I just kept thinking it was going to go away and he would figure it out on his own, but he’s not…I feel like if I don’t help him do something drastic, that he’s going to die,” the worried mom confessed tearfully on camera.
Unfortunately, the intervention didn’t go as planned. When the team of experts the mystery man brought along arrived at Khloe’s house, Rob locked himself in his room and was notably angry when he called his sister.
This refusal to accept help has Kim wanting to pull out the really tough love card. She tells her sisters that their constant coddling of Rob is “pathetic” and says they have to tell him that “You are cut off financially, not taken care of whatsoever, so either go now or accept our help.”
While the plan might be a legitimate last resort to take, it’s obviously not going to work unless everyone is onboard.
The situation ended with Rob calling Kris, who allowed him to stay at her home.
“I cry myself to sleep literally every night worrying about [Rob],” Kris admitted. “It’s breaking my heart.”
