Did Rob Kardashian bail on Kimye’s wedding because Kim bashed his weight?

Rob Kardashian

Here are some photos of Rob Kardashian arriving in Los Angeles on Saturday. As Kaiser mentioned, Rob fled Kim’s Florence wedding in haste. I’d speculate about whether Kris Jenner tipped the paps off about Rob’s pending arrival, but the paparazzi always swarm LAX. These are the first full-body photos our agencies have captured of Rob in many months. He intensely dislikes being photographed at his current weight. Now we’re all left to wonder why Rob bolted from Kim’s wedding at the last minute. Something major had to happen to make him willing to brave LAX on his own. Here are several theories:

* X17 spoke to a Kardashian insider who says Rob fled after a major fight with Kim at Valentino’s chateau. Kim wanted everyone to look fantastic and dressed up in Valentino couture as they departed Paris for Florence. When Rob couldn’t fit into his suit, Kim reportedly lost it. Rob fired back: “Rob said he was sickened by Kim and Kanye’s display of wealth and clothes and beauty and called it ‘superficial bullsh-t’ but Kim was p-ssed that Rob hadn’t made an effort to drop any weight over the past few months. Rob basically said he’d ‘make life easier’ for her and just leave.” Rob also feels like “he just doesn’t fit in” with his family anymore.

* TMZ adds that Rob booked his flight in a hurry, and he was “in tears” as he made the plans. Kim supposedly gave Rob a bunch of crap about ruining her wedding photos with his fatness. Rob refused to talk to TMZ when he arrived at LAX.

* Us Weekly calls Rob “the elusive sock designer” and says everything was fine for days in Paris. Rob had a great time joking around with Bruce Jenner and Scott Disick at a hotel bar on Friday. Then the big blowup ruined everything.

* Hollywood Life says Khloe cried when she heard Rob was leaving the festivities. She tried to convince him to stay and tried to make excuses for Kim’s behavior. Because Kim was “getting married and is all nervous and freaking out.” (Seriously? This is her 3rd wedding. She should be used to it.) Most of what Kim was saying was behind Rob’s back, but he found out and confronted her. Then “everyone decided to take Kim’s side — Rob was devastated and left.” The poor guy needs to never look back.

    That poor guy … not a fan of him or his family, but it can’t be easy to have to deal with that family all the time, when you’re less than a perfect cash cow (without looking like a cow of course, just a perfect plastic doll with an ass of lies …)

    • LeahMommy says:

      This guy is a douche but his mother and the rest of the family except for maybe Khloe treats him like crap. He is looked upon with contempt by them all especially by his mother and Kim(I’ve watch the show, shame on me). PMK hates that he’s not bringing in the dollar which has always been her # 1 love. It must be hard feeling like the only failure in your entire family but I don’t feel too too bad for him because he’s not very nice either.

      • TG says:

        @ Leahmommy – I agree 100%. Plus if Rob is miserable there is nothing stopping him from moving far from this Klan and getting a regular 9 to 5 or any other job just like the rest of us. I think Rob thinks just wants attention. There is only room for one a$$ at KimME’s wedding. Although in this case I guess there were two actually.

      • bluhare says:

        There was a lot more than two!

      • Snazzy says:

        I guess I don’t know enough about him to know if he’s an a$$hat or not (although the sock thing is pretty funny) … I just kind of feel bad about the fat shaming, and I actually totally believe that people in that family would give him sh*t for not fitting their gold standard …

        Maybe it’s cause I come from a family who keeps offering me lypo as a gift …

        But yes, he could always take things into his own hands leave – but imagine if PMK has them all under some kind of contract so they actually couldn’t walk away? Is that too much of a conspiracy theory?

    • whipmyhair says:

      @snazzy, if my family offered me lypo i would eat really badly in front of them all the time to piss them off!

      I’m so sorry that your family is like that. Just be true to yourself and do what makes you happy!

      • TG says:

        If my family offered me lipo I would take the money and go on a fabulous vacation. Would teach them to STFU.

    • zbornak syndrome says:

      Don’t worry Rob, you can attend Kim’s 4th wedding soon.

      • abbizmal says:

        Hahahaha, zbornak syndrome. This is highly probable. Wonder how long this one will last? I love you, mom and dad, and thank God you’re good people, and not superficial moneygrubbing assholes.

  2. Beatrice says:

    Another theory–could this be scripted for the E special?

    • Enny says:

      +1 my thought exactly

    • Kiddo says:

      Exactly, IMO.

    • joey says:

      Sadly, exactly what i thought, too. Can’t put anything past this family anymore, imo.

    • Macey says:

      thank you for snapping me back to realty before I almost posted something sympathetic about this guy. I was actually really beginning to feel sorry for him but you are probably right, just another story line for these people.

      • kcarp says:

        Right! Me too. Who are the kidding? Rob storms off, the whole family are left wondering did he really leave, Kim stares at the door not really believing someone could leave Her wedding, Rob takes a break from the family and magically (lap Band) loses tons of weight by the next time they see him.

    • birdie says:

      I thought of that as well, if that would have been Scott for example, this would be likely, but Rob is someone who has issues right now and doesn’t want to be photographed at all. The last paparazzi shots of him were months ago. I don’t think he would put himself out there for a storyline anymore. I guess he really wanted to be there at the wedding (you could see how uncomfortable he was at the airport while his mother smiled into every camera), but something happened. Someone this uncomfortable with himself doesn’t fly all these hours to another country (he was never photographed in Paris, because he didn’t leave the hotel) just to fly back just like that.

      • LeahMommy says:

        @birdie…That’s the conclusion I came to. First I thought this whole thing is probably scripted for their show and then I thought about his behavior for the last few months and it does not add up. He seems to really be struggling. Has not been photographed or on social media, he’s like a recluse now. I can’t see him putting himself out there like that. Unless PMK threatening him like “you better get with the program and start making me money or else…”

      • bluhare says:

        I agree. Maybe he is a jerk (I don’t watch the show so I’ve got no idea), but if they were complaining about his weight (which they knew about before anyone got on any planes) that’s awful. So much for weddings being about love and family. It’s all about how many people you can impress and how much money you can spend.

        I feel sorry for people today especially men wanting to propose.

    • Kate says:

      Absolutely. I’m sure he was all broken up about leaving the “wedding” of his sister and her “true love.” Every single bit of it is fake.

    • Heather says:

      I feel like this is scripted. This whole family’s life is scripted. They are probably positioning this for a spin off show for Rob that shows him losing the weight and starting a new life – ‘Rob on the Rebound’ or something. There is of course the possibility that this is true because Rob does seem depressed and withdrawn, BUT with this family, THAT could also be part of the set up for a new show. Who knows with these people.

      • swack says:

        I kind of agree with you. When the whole story about Rob reacting to the stories about his weight he made several statements that make me feel like he’s not as depressed as everyone thinks he is. He stated that he didn’t believe in therapy and that he would work on himself when he wanted to (which is the only way he will lose the weight, no amount of telling him to lose weight will make him lose weight). If his mom and siblings are harassing him, shame on them.

      • Heather says:

        Agree. It is all likely scripted. Maybe not intentionally as I doubt Rob gained a lot of weight on purpose, but now that he has, it would not surprise me if his mother is trying to spin this into a money maker. Ugh.

      • snowflake says:

        but who would gain that much weight so they can have a reality show based on weight loss? don’t get me wrong, kris might spin it that way so he can make some money. but to me he looks depressed and that’s why he’s put on all that weight. everyone always picks on him, saying he’s a loser. that would make anyone depressed and a lot of people eat when they’re sad.

      • Kim says:

        People who are depressed don’t generally go around saying yes I’m depressed or I need therapy.I guess if he attempts suicide that will be for ratings as well.GMAB
        I hope Rob is able to pull himself out of this dark hole.I hope he can stop hating Rob.There is a lot of self hatred in that family.

    • LeahMommy says:

      Yeah that was my first thought. Everything about these people is fake so you never know.

    • kri says:

      I agree-probably is going to be used for the show. But I don’t think Rob is that good of an actor, so “used” for the show is exactly what they’ re doing to him. I know he treated some women like crap and I am not down with that at all. I’m just wondering if he would improve as a human being without that klan of strigoi around him. Oho!! What about a show with Rob and Bruce called “Kasting Off The Kardasians” or “Bruce and Rob-Escape From Bitch Mountain”? I would so watch that. Go ahead, guys. Spill all the filth!!

      • Tulip Garden says:

        I would watch that show too! Anyway, I agree with everything that you said. I have often wondered if Rob would straighten out and be a wholly different human being without the influence of PMK and the sisters. That family really seems to treat males as second class citizens. Perhaps, Rob’s view of women has been colored by his exposure to them and their treatment of him plus being present for all the belittling remarks and dismissing attitude they seem to have toward Bruce and pretty much every other male particularly their romantic partners. Regardless, in the end. Rob is responsible for Rob and I hope he climbs out of whatever dark place that he is in and along the way learns to treat women (and men) well including himself.

        Lastly, is Rob still on the show? For some reason, I thought he had bailed from that. I don’t watch so I could be wrong. Does anyone know?

      • TG says:

        Oh gosh @KRI – I laughing so hard. I like either title.

    • Becky says:

      I was surprised he didn’t give away the bride. Did Bruce give her away last time too?

    • Jag says:

      Especially since it was said that he wasn’t going to the wedding anyway because his pregnant girlfriend wasn’t invited. Perhaps he was paid to do this because they knew he wasn’t going to be there as it was.

  3. Lis says:

    Poor guy. It isn’t a nice feeling when your family hurts you. Feel better, Rob.

  4. LadyMTL says:

    Although I personally can’t imagine bailing on my brother’s wedding (no sisters for me, alas) I also think that – if it was true that Kim was insulting him and fat shaming him – then he for sure had the right to leave. Being a “stressed out bride” doesn’t give anyone the right to be that cruel.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Kim is a mean person, she pretends to be otherwise but I have no problem believing she was cruel to him over his weight. I think any bride that acts like an arrogant self-centered bitch needs to get an earful whether it’s her third “special day” or not. If this were my family, my mother would kill me if I upset my brother this way. Such nasty behavior is unacceptable in a loving family and the fact that no one stood up to the queen bully Kim speaks volumes about that horrible family.

    • Marybelle says:

      I remember an episode of one of the K-shows (I had just had a baby and was watching a lot of TV while nursing) Kourtney had just given birth to her daughter and hadn’t lost the baby weight. Kim was shaming her for wearing frumpy clothes and not caring about her appearance, plus she kept trying to make Kourtney go to the gym. Kourtney’s baby was like 2 months old or something – really new. Kourtney was really upset but trying to play it off. Khloe finally said something about how Kim had been gaining weight since being with Kanye and should be quiet. It was horrible! Who SHAMES their sister, who just had a baby, because she’s not a size 0 like six minutes after.

  5. smee says:

    Well, those synthetic sweat pants he’s wearing would make me cry too.

    • BRE says:

      Thank you! He looks like crap not because of his weight but because he seems to have adopted this as his wardrobe. It is hard to dress when you are larger but he has the money (family money) to get designer outfits that fit well.

      • Squiggles says:

        One thing: if you are already feeling bad about yourself because of your weight, no amount of money will help you feel and dress better. Once he decides and accepts himself as he is, chances are, he will dress better.

      • Snazzy says:

        I’m with you squiggles. Chances are, if he feels like crap, he’s not going to make an effort because he doesn’t see himself as being worth it. Once he accepts himself then he can buy some great designer suits that cost more than my yearly salary 😉

        But unlikely his family will allow that … so Captain Sweatpants he remains …

    • bluhare says:

      What should they have been made out of? Organic silk made by hand raised silkworms who only eat the blood of virgins? He was getting on a plane!

  6. Elisabeth says:

    I actually feel bad for him. If that’s the real reason (which all signs point to yes it is)

    • Snazzy says:

      Yes me too. That family makes me nuts, but I really do feel for him.
      He really needs to get away from them and never turn back.
      Of course he won’t though 🙁

  7. birdie says:

    This shows how superficial and soulless these people are. Rob clearly has issues and needs support, but all this Kim person sees is her wedding, dresses, looking good. His mother is a joke, because she obviously only cares about her daughters, they make the most money after all (oh, hello 10%). Work through your issues, get away from your toxic family and live YOUR life. Not this superficial, famehungry life your sisters live.

    • tifzlan says:

      PMK only cares about Kim, tbh. I honestly feel sorry for Rob and i’m angry that anyone tried to excuse Kim’s behavior.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        PMK is a soulless pile of clothing posing as a human being, if she cared for Kim, she would not have marketed her sex tape.

  8. Shauna says:

    I can’t believe I actually feel sympathy for a Kardashian but I do for Rob. Who cares what someone looks like in a wedding photo?? Good for him for standing up to that nasty family.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I don’t know if it was standing up to them or just fleeing his abuser, either way he’s better off without them. I too am amazed but if this story is true, and his abrupt departure does seem to support the tale, I feel sorry for him as well. And I don’t like any of them, at all, but I do feel bad for him, it must be a nightmare to have to live with these people.

  9. K-rock says:

    I feel so bad for him. And to have it all play out in public. Shame on them!

  10. Aussie girl says:

    Maybe they tried to make him wear the dress Kim wore to the MET ball last year when she was preggo..? I know bit nice and I know something must have gone down to upset rob to make him leave. But in this point of time, I could give two shits.

  11. Turtle says:

    This guy looks like he is really in pain.
    You don’t just gain 100 lbs without a physical or mental health issue- I’d say depression and neglect are his problems and no one in their family are taking care of him. They only care about each other as how they pertain to promoting themselves and that is messed up.

    A real mother would have never let that go down between Kim and Rob but we can’t expect that of Kris.

    Kim has some nerve acting like a Princess Bride as a 33 year old thrice married out of wedlock mother porn star acting like this. I’ll be glad when this wedding hype is done and the Kartrashians are finally over.

    • The Wizz says:

      Exactly he’s actually even bigger now, it’s more than just food and booze, there is a broader issue going on that is causing him to overeat. I hope he gets some help.

    • Tania says:

      Yes apparently he got huge off anti depressants. I don’t doubt alcohol might have some hand in there too.

      • bluhare says:

        I gained quite a bit of weight when I stopped taking anti depressants. Not 100 lbs, though, but my metabolism totally changed and now I’m fighting to lose the weight I gained without going back on them!

      • Rockymtnprincess says:

        I gained weight while on anti depressants…a lot, my boobs were ginormous..they effect everyone differently. It makes depression hard to diagnosis properly.
        He is obviously in pain. If it’s bring exploited by E! and LHG for ratings they are horrible. The poor guy needs to get away, go somewhere with limited fast food and get some good old fashioned cardio going. I can’t imagine being surround by all that chaos constantly. I feel for him.

    • JessSaysNo says:

      He is a grown man and doesn’t need his mother or anyone to “take care of him.” I’m sure if it was Khloe cowering under a t-shirt because of her weight everyone would be shitting all over her. Sure, he has depression and is a member of a toxic family which has made it worse. If Kim bashed on his weight, I don’t blame him for taking off.

      More likely, he felt embarrassed because he bases his worth on his looks (he WAS raised by Kris after all) and couldn’t handle the photos. He is a little baby-back bitch to leave the wedding for being insecure. No one needs to take care of him, he is an ADULT.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        He only looks like an adult, his immature behavior demonstrates quite clearly that he is not an adult. People do not automatically become adults at eighteen, most people are still very immature well into their 20’s and beyond. His mother is useless and vile and has kept him infantilized, undermined his sense of self-worth and taught him his appearance is all that matters but somehow because he is a “grown man” he should magically snap out it. Sadly, it doesn’t work that way, the immature man-boy Kris cultivated will not miraculously turn out to be a well adjusted adult overnight.

  12. Jenny says:

    So basically this is just a plot line.

  13. paola says:

    I think he was probably looking for a reason to leave and he found one. Probably Bruce was disappointed that he didn’t think of putting on weight as the only possible way to avoid that circus wedding. You’ll see, for Kim’s next wedding Bruce will be the size of an elephant!

  14. Adrien says:

    I believe this. But I don’t think it was Kim who bashed his weight. I don’t think she’s that heartless. It was probably Kris.

    • Dani2 says:

      My thoughts exactly.

      • springingforward says:

        Someone on dlisted posted a clip from an early Kardashian show when Kim was dating Humphries. She was a cruel b*tch to Rob; heartless and evil. She is totally capable of this and likely did say things to him to hurt him.
        All she cares about is herself.

    • Josephine says:

      If it was ruining her pics, then I can see it. After all, she’s always having the other girls wear contrasting colors to what she is wearing – when she is wearing white, everyone has to wear black, and vice-versa. I think she is exactly that superficial.

    • bluhare says:

      I can see it. I can also see Kanye’s hand in it too.

    • shelley says:

      Kim is that heartless. She’s said to Khloe on tv several years ago that she’s fat and ugly. She’s also told Khloe and Kourtney that she would never be seen with them due to their choice of outfits on a particular day. She is a shallow bitch who thinks she’s better than the rest of her family, when in fact they are better than her as they don’t have sex tapes. She also has been mean to Rob on tv. They did a family therapy session once and when Rob started crying Kim and Kris just sat there and kind of didn’t care that he was crying. Only Kourtney and Khloe actually went after him.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Kim is completely heartless, don’t you recall her second marriage to that goofball she dug up to humiliate for ratings? Heartless.

  15. Dani2 says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the truth tbh, but I personally believe that most of the weight criticism would come from Kris. She’s very business-minded, to the point of being insensitive to her kids, I remember an old KUWTK episode I watched (don’t judge me, one of my closest friends is really into the show for some reason) – Kim wanted to support Scott at an event for some product he was selling or something and PMK was like, “no Kim, you can’t go because you already have endorsement deals with so and so”, and Kim basically had to fight to attend her pseudo brother in law’s event. So in a nutshell, I think this kind of criticism would come from Kris especially and that must really hurt; your own mother being insensitive and hurtful to you.

    • Heat says:

      I hang my head in shame that I’ve been known to watch the show from time to time…it just kinda sucks you in. It’s like watching a train wreck; you can’t look away, no matter how much you want to.
      Anyway, I agree; I really don’t think this is something Kim would do, but I can certainly see PMK doing some major fat-shaming. Rob is a total tool most of the time, but I also feel bad for him, having to deal with his family.

      • whatsmyname? says:

        @heat I hang my head in shame with you.

        Yup I can totally see PMK doing this and fat-shaming him for the sake of their brand since they are $elling the wedding.

        Did anyone see the ep when they where having family therapy or something (the famewhore version) and Rob was crying his eyes out and Kim and PMK just sat there and looked like they couldn’t even be bothered? I think Khloe and Kourtney where the only ones comforting him and he seemed to have issues. But I might be remembering it wrong.

      • Sam H x says:

        @whatsmyname? – I’ll join in hanging my head in shame. I remember watching it, I felt so awful for him because he sat in the therapists office, he sobbed his heart out like a little kid, Khloe did go after him and Kourtney was visibly upset by Rob’s emotional breakdown. Kim & lucifer’s homegirl just sat there with vacant stares, completely unmoved and later Kim cried crocodile tears to the therapist. The only thing believable in that episode was Rob sobbing and Kourtney/Khloe’s reactions.

  16. neelyo says:

    How old is he? I don’t feel sorry for him because he could have left already. I think that while he may be unhappy he enjoys the benefits he reaps from being part of this family. I’m sure he inherited the allergy to real work the rest of them have.

    My cynical theory: When he first gained the weight a year ago or so, Kris made him publicize it in hopes of getting at least Biggest Loser Celebrity (is there such a thing or did I make that up?) or even a Weight Watchers gig. That didn’t pan out so now he really has no purpose and Kris is leading the family in tormenting Rob in hopes that maybe he’ll commit suicide and they can gain sympathy and be rid of the least valuable member of the clan. Yes I think they’re that soulless, especially Mama.

    • eliza says:

      There WAS a Celebrity Fit Club on VH1 but to my knowledge no Biggest Loser Celebrity. DON’T give Kris any ideas! Lol.

      • swack says:

        No, but Biggest Loser had Reuben Stoddard (of American Idol fame) on as a contestant. So maybe she is thinking he could do the same thing.

      • eliza says:

        @Swack- I have no idea who he is but you may be right. I do not watch either show or KUTWTK. I did, however, watch Celebrity Fit Club and LOVED IT! Lol.

    • Bridget says:

      Thrre was a rumor back when Rob first gained a lot of weight that he was angling for a weight loss deal, which never really panned out (though he was on DWTS at one point – was that before or after fat Rob?). I think he gained the weight, and then when he realized it was harder than he thought to work it off that he just gave up. There are a lot of comments that people say he must have issues with depression etc but sometimes people just gain weight.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I think his weight gain is natural too. My brother put on weight the same way and we’re also half-middle eastern, half Western European. My brother eats too much, plays too many video games and doesn’t get enough exercise. Too much pizza and beer.

    • Christin says:

      This theory is certainly plausible. Maybe he began to gain, Kris saw $$$, and then no deal. This guy just doesn’t seem to have a lot of motivation about anything. He once talked about law school (like his dad), but I don’t think he has any real gumption about him. I think that’s why he won’t stand up to or break away from his family.

  17. NewWester says:

    I hope this was just a scripted storyline for their show. But if Kim ( or Lucifer’ s ” Mother from Hell” Homegirl) said things like that, I would not really be that surprised. Kim only cares about is her reflection in a mirror and Lucifer’s Homegirl only cares about money and Kim( PMK does not care about mirrors as she has no reflection)

  18. eliza says:

    Of course she hated how he looked because she is a self absorbed. Superficial attention whore who thinks the world revolves solely around her.

    I have no idea what is fact or fiction for that crappy show of theirs but I do know I fully support his decision and that of “The Carter’s” to not be a part of this ridiculous circus for whatever the reasons.

    It is fairly obvious that those who are not on board with the “Kimye” circle jerk are not welcome around them. There is obviously something going on that 4 people, Jay Z, Beyonce, Brody and Rob skipped the event. I do not believe work, other plans or embarrassment had anything to do with it

  19. JudyK says:

    Oh, get real. You don’t miss your own sister’s wedding for a plot line. You only get one shot at that.

    I totally believe this story, because Kim is so totally shallow and narcissistic that I can hear her telling him his fatness would ruin her wedding pics.

    • Tracy says:

      Rob can catch Kim’s next wedding.

    • aenflex says:

      Agree mostly with you. But one shot? Please, this is his disgusting sister’s third wedding, the man is OVER it.

    • Kate says:

      But the wedding itself is a plot line. None of this is real.

    • snowflake says:

      exactly!! so stupid to me that people think he did this for a plot line.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        It WILL be a plot line now, whether it was by design or not, I have no doubt it will be used because that is all he and his emotional distress are to his caring family, a plot line.

  20. serena says:

    After Khloe ass of lies I think Rob might become my favourite Kardashian (not that I necessarly need one).

  21. Tracy says:

    What a horrible family.

  22. AlmondJoy says:

    I know we’re supposed to hate all things Kardashian, but if this is true, I feel bad for the guy. He needs to get as far away from his family as possible.

    Random: I wonder if he’s talking to Lamar on the phone! They were always super close.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      I have wondered about what, if any, kind of relationship he shares with Lamar now too.

  23. Nya says:

    Can’t say I really feel sorry for him. He’s a horrible person (the things he said about his ex girlfriend and something about an abortion) in a horrible family so whatever.

    • eliza says:

      Totally agree as far as him as a person. He treats women HORRIBLY!

    • Andrea says:

      Never heard about this…anyone have a link?

      • eliza says:

        Just look up Rita Ora and Adrienne Ballon with his name.

        He also used to love to call women out on being whores and was very critical of “ugly” women. He is not exactly a nuce person but coming from that family of entitled no talents, what can you expect.

    • Becky says:

      Yes. Rob always goes off the deep end when his relationships end (he is very, very sensitive). He has also been showing signs of depression for many years, although I disagree with most comments here regarding the lack of support from his family. Khloe has always looked out for him, even taking him to live with her and Lamar. She has always seemed aware of his issues and tries to give him advice, so much so that one could argues she enables him. The way she speaks about him w Kim and PMK also show they are all aware of his emotional instability.

      Eta: but yes, the way he treats his exes is disturbing. Worse than what he says is his obsessive, stalker-like behavior.

  24. MediaMaven says:

    ……. And before he left, there was a small child dressed in itchy monochromatic designer clothing, begging him to take her with him.

  25. bettyrose says:

    Wait? Kim K. is a superficial PoS? A heartless, narcissist who cares only about her own image? There’s late breaking news.

  26. Frenchie says:

    I do feel bad for RK, hopefully this not another scheme from pimp mama Kris to add drama to the show or get Rk his own show, endorsement and cover stories about his future weight loss. This may not be scripted this time b/c i doubt kimye would want to be portray as mean and cruel on her perfect wedding day ..
    I think it just show the real nature of kimye and the K family vapid and shallow…

  27. Amanda G says:

    I can feel for this guy up to a certain extent, but there comes a point when you have to either accept who you are or make a change. I know this from personal experience. I was just like him, hiding from the world because I was embarrassed by my weight gain. I finally decided to put up or shut up and lost 85lbs. He needs to weed out the negative people in his life and stop hiding. I have a bad feeling he might be this families first suicide storyline. I hope I’m wrong.

  28. Tippy says:

    Hopefully this will serve as a wake-up call for Rob. He’s only 27 yet he’s obese, depressed, reclusive and shows no inclination towards losing weight. These should be some of the best years of his life and maybe with some perseverance and tough love they could still be.

  29. jujoki says:

    Even with this guy being a douche or whatsoever, I feel sorry for him. I don’t want to be mean or anything, but as someone with that kind of over-the-top kind of mother, fingers crossed this doesn’t go any further, as in an eating disorder or deep depression.
    Rob, pull an Aimee Osbourne and live your own life.

  30. Daria says:

    I felt bad for him until I realized that someone probably wrote this plot point for the next KUWTK finale.

  31. glowrie says:

    I dont believe this…Rob has his issues..
    Kim might be many things…but she is not mean/rude – she isnt that confident!!!..
    Its not true…

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      How can you say that after her behavior with Kris H? Using some shnook for a fake marriage on your stupid pointless show is not nice. I call it both mean and rude. And that is only one obvious example of what a nasty person she is. Make-up can’t hide all her flaws.

  32. Ashley says:

    Wow if this is scripted that is really low. It must suck being that delusional, that you cannot go even one day without creating a scheme for people to watch.

    I stopped watching their show a long time ago but I agree with the others, it must be tough being in a family where you are constantly looked down upon. And the worse thing? Their mother doesn’t even try to hide it! Doesn’t she tell all of them that Kim is her favorite?

    Mostly I’m just pissed that this Kanye thing is going to extend their fame for another decade. They should have been dead and buried by now instead of invading our tvs for who knows how much longer.

    • word says:

      As long as there is a rich famous man willing to marry Kim, the Kardashians will NEVER go away.

  33. The Original G says:

    Well, there are a lot of reasons a person can gain weight. Thyroid issues, hormonal issues, reactions to other medication. It could be depression. Maybe this weight is a way of saying *no* to the K-Empire without words? Maybe it’s a way of repelling the intrusion into his personal life? Maybe it’s not ideal, but being fat isn’t a crime, either.

    It’s my observation that a lot of men in the Kardashian orbit are not doing very well. They seem to have their lives on hold to accomodate that stupid TV show. I thought Lamar was the exception, keeping his independance, but he seems to have crashed and burned as well. Bruce is moving on, but can’t escape being the but of some joke. Scott has accepted being a joke for some time.

    Some people take longer in life to find themselves. I think I was one of those people as well. It seems Rob is stuck. Just some thoughts.

  34. The Original Mia says:

    Still feel no sympathy for him. He needs to cut them loose. Go to therapy. Get a job and some perspective. If his family is willing to throw him under the bus for a scripted showmance wedding, its time to pull up his big boy panties and get on with his life away from the toxic mess of his family.

    I will give him credit for leaving and calling out the superficiality of the entire wedding extravaganza. Baby steps.

  35. Rob fan says:

    I really adored Rob on Dancing with the Stars. I’m sorry that he’s having a rough patch, but I think he did the right thing to leave. Families can be the worst. All you can do is separate yourself and surround yourself with people who truly have your best interests at heart. I hope he does this. I also hope he knows that it’s no weakness to get some professional help in dealing with what’s going on with him. Most of us have been through some horrible family drama. Get some help, grow from it, and you end up a stronger, better person. Eff em.
    PS I hear you that you think it is scripted, but I doubt it.

    • Jayna says:

      Kris is too busy with the Kimye juggernaut. and the princess, Nori. She’s too busy rushing around acting like she’s in her 20s with her boytoy and her own celebrity. A son that brings her nothing for her ten percent isn’t high on her priority list.

      He has his own demons, so I’m not blaming everybody. But he is obviously in trouble and depressed among other things.

  36. Maxine7 says:

    So when RK takes his own life because of depression, are we going to say that was scripted too? This is a troubled young man as evidenced by his dysfunctional relationships with women, his family, and ultimately himself. This is a perfect example of how and why people in some sort of celebrity status do not get the mental health they deserve and need. He needs help and fast and he’s clearly not going to get it from his biological family.

    Think about it – even if this is a story line – you still have to be pretty mentally unwell to gain 100+ pounds, then fly 7+ hours to another country only to turn right around and fly back. Either way, he needs help.

    Run Rob – run far , fast and hard away from these people and find other people who help you get on the road to the recovery you need and deserve.

  37. Sam H x says:

    I think Rob is depressed too, deeply unhappy, troubled with issues due to his upbringing and lack of mothering from Kris Jenner. I feel as if he is in denial about his problems or he just wants to keep his inner turmoil private. The best thing he can do for himself is to distance himself from his family for his own emotional wellbeing and get help (there is no shame in it). He needs to gather up the willpower to leave them once and for all. Find people who will support him, put his emotional wellbeing first and boost his confidence.

    Kris Jenner became obsessed with making money, that her love for the almighty dollar blinded her so her kids became walking dollar signs and she forgot how to be their mother.

    This isn’t a manufactured storyline, clearly something went down that Rob abruptly left to fly back home. Kudos to him calling Kim out for what the wedding is. Khloe seems to be making p*ss poor excuses for her mother and Kim. If anyone of them were genuinely upset by his decision then they should have went after him. They didn’t. Shallow, vain, vapid and selfish individuals.

    Trouble is, aren’t they all contractually bound to film this show? Bruce Jenner hasn’t been allowed to go just yet and has to fulfill his obligations to E!. Boy, is E! the devil incarnated & Kris is Lucifer’s homegirl.

    I know how he feels to be taunted by your own mother and others about your weight. Except my mother is the only one who taunts me, bullies me about my weight constantly when she gets the chance and got my dad to join in recently which upset me further. I will never forget it for the rest of my life. Her words destroyed me. She wants to control every single aspect of our lives. Yet she claims to give us freedom. I believe she is a narcissist of the worst kind.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      Walk away, Sam H x, and NEVER look back! I guarantee you won’t miss them.

      After a few months, they’ll stop trying to contact you and then you’ll be free. All the best in life to you!

  38. jwoolman says:

    The demon mother apparently got TMZ to spin the story as they all were being so terribly supportive and encouraging him to take part in the pictures etc but for some baffling reason he wouldn’t listen and left anyway. As if this bunch could be any more supportive than a thin piece of tissue… No mention of his comments about the whole wedding thing being all superficial bs.

    Medications can definitely mess up your metabolism and make it very easy to gain weight but very hard to lose it. It’s not necessarily about “slowing metabolism” but more about interfering with such things as how things get metabolized, fat storage processes, etc. The body is geared to let us gain easily but not lose as a hedge against famine anyway, which is why successful weight losers typically have to go slow.

  39. Nibbi says:

    Meh. Seems like another storyline to keep us interested to me.

  40. JessSaysNo says:

    Kris has raised all of her kids to value themselves based on their looks ONLY. Rob believes he is now worthless because he is fat. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kris and Kim made comments on his weight but I’m sure Kim would rather have her ‘fat brother’ in her wedding pictures rather than not having him in the pictures at all. Not because she cares of loves him, but because it goes against her “perfect family” image and makes her wedding look ghetto.

    I don’t understand these rich people. If I was in Florence and needed to leave a tacky and gauche wedding, I wouldn’t come HOME to lay around in sadness. Why wouldn’t he fly somewhere cool? Go on vacation! Spend some money and do something fun… Oh to have unlimited money…

    • jwoolman says:

      Kim seems to just care about Kim. I doubt that she would rather have her brother in the photos at his current weight than not at all. Appearance is excruciatingly important to Kim- that’s why she has the plastic surgeon on speed dial.

      Heaven help Nori. Neither of her parents is naturally thin but her mother and grandmother will shame her for every extra ounce and push her into a bad relationship with food if given a chance. And she looks like her dad- which is fine on a baby, but she most likely won’t fit Kim’s narrow standards of beauty as she grows older. By 16, she’ll be at the plastic surgeons with mom’s signature unless somebody in Kanye’s family rescues her from Kardashian hell long before then. Look at what Khloe has gone through just because she looks different from her sisters. It extends beyond the family, too- women frequently get trashed with phrases such as “mannish”, “man hands”, “horse face”, “tranny” even though women have always come in a great variety of sizes and shapes. Men get the same treatment (look at all the people calling Bieber a girl, a lesbian etc. because he’s still an adolescent, managing to insult both him and half the species at once since being a girl should not be an insult), although maybe not to the same relentless extent. Anyway, I see a lot if that in Nori’s future both at home and in the tabloids, including all those folks gushing now about how she’s a beautiful baby. Catch you in 20 years…

  41. Longhorn says:

    How can kim of all people fat shame her brother. She can shade a house with butt

  42. Nesi says:

    So who is this mystery person who talked to the paps and doesn’t care if they are kicked out of the festivities and main event? I mean, the guests are not even supposed to bring cell phones to the wedding. Can’t see risking being that person just to give a second hand account of what they think the reason is that Rob left. Maybe he wasn’t feeling well or forgot his wedding socks or didn’t like the food on the menu (ok, that was uncalled for). Looks like Rob is seriously depressed and I hope that he does get some therapy because until he understands the role he plays in dysfunctional relationships, it won’t matter what his weight is, he won’t be truly happy.

  43. Jana says:

    That whole family, with the exception of Khloe, who I believe was fathered by someone else, is completely despicable. They all let Kim run ram shod over them because they want money. Kim should be ashamed of herself!

  44. tango says:

    I thought there was a blind gossip item a month or two back about a sibling in rehab and a lot of people thought it was Rob. So it’s possible trying to quit drugs/alcohol caused Rob to gain a lot of weight – replacing drugs with food or the side effects of medication.
    I know nothing of Rob as a person so can’t say if he’s a jerk or not but if he truly is battling depression, trying to stay sober or having health issues, than Kim calling him out on his weight is cruel. I hope Rob leaves the rest of his family behind and makes a loving life for himself.

    Sad fact is sooner or later Kim is going to be old and jacked up from surgery and no one will pay a lick of attention to her. I can only imagine the day her daughter hits her teenaged years. God help if she’s pretty. Kim so seems the type to compete with her kid and try to sleep with her boyfriends.

  45. Sansa says:

    Poor Rob appears to be on meds and bloated up just like Kimmy with Nori. Think she would maybe be less hard on Rbob given her situation… Khloe is the only one with a clue.

  46. decorative item says:

    Honestly, I couldn’t give two shits for this arse. Trust, if he didn’t have a weight problem he would be happily sitting at the bar with the family spitting on the ugly, fat, poor people.
    And what is a grown man doing fleeing from his sisters wedding in tears…really? Don’t feel sorry for him, the family will spin this into a story and cash in on it. Que Weight Watcher endorsement in 3, 2,1.

  47. decorative item says:


  48. CeltLady says:

    If it is true that Kim fat shamed Rob and the family took her side, then I feel for Rob. He needs to be done with all of them.

    I have horrendous idiots who masquerade as siblings, and the wisest move that I have ever made in my life was to cut them off after my parents died. Life is too short to tolerate judgmental haters.

    Rob, move on. You deserve better.

  49. Poink517 says:


  50. Bob Loblaw says:

    I’ll say it, he’s not that fat. With all the talk, I expected to see a moose, please, 100 pounds? I doubt it. He’s put on weight but that’s not unheard of. Many people put on weight after adolescence, look around, I know tons of people who look like Rob and I’m not assuming depression, medication or life crisis. I am assuming sofa, TV and Cheetos.

  51. Dani says:

    It’s not like he missed much. It’s her THIRD wedding. Been there, done that.
