Rob Kardashian got some love from little sister Kylie Jenner recently, when she shared a photo of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star on her Instagram account.
Of course the photo Kylie shared of Rob was one taken prior to his 100-pound weight gain.
As anyone who follows the Keeping Up With the Kardashians saga knows, Rob Kardashian has struggled in recent months with self-esteem issues. Some, including his mom, Kris Jenner, thinks he is depressed.
Kylie’s post is no doubt a show of support for Rob while he is hurting.
“My best friend, my heart, my brother,” she captioned the shot.
Rob Kardashian doesn’t have a particularly great reputation on Instagram–at least not according to his sister Kim Kardashian. It wasn’t so long ago that he posted a bizarre, bloody photo of Gone Girl star Rosamund Pike, comparing it to his sister Kim. He captioned that photo, “the bitch from Gone Girl.”
Kris Jenner tried to get some help from her son, but–as usual–the intervention of sorts was aired on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“I cry myself to sleep literally every night worrying about [Rob],” Kris said. “It’s breaking my heart.”
Kim Kardashian insisted that the family makes life too easy for Rob Kardashian, and spoke out in favor of a tough love approach instead.
“We’re not gonna cater to him anymore, but it has to be all of us,” she said.
Perhaps Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and the rest of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians gang should simply have a private conversation with Rob Kardashian–away from the cameras. Maybe if he finds his family members to be sincere about him needing help, rather than making a big deal of it for TV ratings, he might feel a bit more inclined to get some.
Aww! Kylie Jenner has got nothing but love for her brother Rob Kardashian http://t.co/BReJpeKhqs pic.twitter.com/t1KXYEYet4

At least Rob has Kylie Jenner in his corner–if only to show support via Instagram.
