Rob Kardashian & Kim argue, she says he’s ‘bringing down the family name’

Rob Kardashian

Here’s a photo of Rob Kardashian in 2012. I wonder how the gossip world would cover Rob Kardashian’s weight if he was one of his sisters. He’s perfectly aware of the issue, and I think most of us feel a little bad for him right now. He’s the only male sibling in a family full of image-obsessed women. Looks are all that matter to the Klan … well, besides money. But looks = money for the Kardashians.

Depending on the source, Rob has gained close to 100 pounds. Friends are worried about him, and the situation came to a head last weekend when he bailed on the Kimye wedding. The prevailing theory is that Kim gave Rob a hard time for ruining her photos with his fatness. Radar has even more on Rob and Kim’s differences:

After Rob Kardashian arrived in Paris, for sister, Kim‘s wedding, the siblings got into a heated argument in which the sex tape star accused her brother of leaking negative stories about her to the media causing the sock designer to abruptly leave Italy before the reality star’s wedding to Kanye West, is exclusively reporting.

Adding insult to injury, the source claims Kim also hurt Rob’s feelings by bringing up his weight.

“Kim and Rob haven’t been speaking to each other for months…she thinks he is lazy, and bringing down the family name because of his physical appearance. After arriving in Paris, Rob and Kim got into a very heated argument because she thought he was just moping around the hotel. She encouraged him to go out and sight see, which he declined to do,” the source told Radar.

“This made her extremely angry, and they exchanged words. During the course of the argument, Rob was accused by Kim of leaking negative stories about her to the press. That was the final straw for Rob, because that is something he would never do.”

The source continued, “So, he packed his bags, and left Paris before the wedding. He wanted nothing to do with it, and thought it was ridiculous that Kim’s third marriage was so over the top.”

“He’s looking sad and ‘depressed’ big time right now,” a pal close to Rob told Radar. “He’s not exactly the famous one in his family and he sort of feels like he’s nobody except the Kardashian name.”

Shadowed by sister Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, half-sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner and their momager Kris, Rob has taken to self-medicating as a way to cope.

“He takes Xanax and has been drinking really heavily,” the pal said. “Not to mention he’s eating like crazy!”

Sources also tell Radar, “The last thing Rob should be worried right now is about his weight….it’s just a symptom of his problems. He is clearly struggling and needs the support and love of his family. Judging him, making snarky comments about his weight, and so called lack of ambition isn’t helping.”

[From Radar Online]

Oh, this is rich. Kim thinks that Rob is “bringing down the family name“? Kim must have forgotten how she became famous in the first place. Rob’s also not the one ducking in and out of marriages. If Kim wonders who’s leaking info about her to the tabloids, I suggest she look up the family chain instead of targeting Rob. He only wants to build his sock empire.

US Magazine, on their “Kim’s Wedding” cover, promises to reveal “Why Rob Fled His Family.” Their explanation is weak and claims that Rob “suffered a bout of self-consciousness” after spending “four days in France shrouded in jogging suits.” Their source claims that “Rob had a fit of depression. He just couldn’t handle it.” Kim was allegedly “upset, but at that point, there was nothing she could do.

TMZ has a weird story from Rob’s trainer, Gunnar Peterson. Gunnar details his plan for Rob, which include an hour daily of high-intensity exercises and a full diet transformation. I don’t understand why these celebrity trainers talk like this about their clients. Gunnar sounds like a male version of Tracy Anderson, who delights in verbally abusing her own clients and their “disaster bodies.” I’d never pay some a-hole trainer to trash me in public like that.

Here’s Rob in March 2013 with the nefarious Kris Jenner in tow.

    oh yeah….rob is the problem
    ~Said no one ever

    • Jules says:

      So says the sister who made the p0rn tape.

      • CL says:

        So says the sister who was peed on in said pr0n video.

      • Dani says:

        So said the sister who willing sold and profited from her pr0n video where she gets peed on.

      • MCraw says:

        OMG she was PEED on?! How did I forget that detail in all these years??!

        I guess that’s been the gameplan all along: make everyone forget the porn tape that catapulted these people to fame.

        I thought R Kelly was the only celeb who did that on tape. Ugh!

    • Carrie says:

      Omg…..never knew that little detail.

    • Wren says:

      Well, duh! Who else could possibly be the problem????? I just can’t imagine any of the other family members causing trouble.

    • wolfpup says:

      So Kim is angry that her brother is not towing the line for her fame? Two men have left the family so far, Bruce, Lamar…and now Rob’s having a problem with all the female narcissism? Who really has the problem?

  2. kcarp says:

    If Rob was a out banging transexuals wearing a clown costume he couldn’t bring down the family name.

    How can you go lower than a gutter? It’s like they are completely delusional about how people view them. Then someone does something stupid like give them a Vogue cover and feeds the egos.

    Rob’s ass is not even as big as Khloe’s.

    • Zimmer says:

      Love the ass comment. Team Rob all the way. How miserable to be part of that family!

    • Susan says:

      My dad said they used to say in the Navy-lower than whale shit on the bottom of the ocean.

    • Nicolette says:

      Exactly, how can you get lower than gutter trash? It’s truly laughable that she is so deluded that she thinks this. She needs to check herself, really check herself.

  3. Greata says:

    That happened the day you made the sex tape honey.

  4. Rob,
    Run away from these people.
    Run your sock empire.
    Make your own life.

    If this is true, Kim is not just the shallow, undereducated person that I thought she was…she is also mean spirited and cold. Clearly he is struggling.

    Rob, get thee away from these people, get yourself fit mentally and physically, and enjoy your life. Your REAL life.

    • Lis says:


    • Camille says:

      What real life?! He is part of this klan and he loves it. He loves the money, attention, press. His problem is that PEOPLE DON’T GIVE A SH@!$T ABOUT HIM AND HIS SOCKS. He clearly can’t get over it. He behaves like spoiled, little child. I have no sympathy for him at all.

      • LeahMommy says:

        @Camille…You are so right. Rob is not mad because he’s a Kardashian, he loves all the perks of being part of the K family. He’s struggling because he is not as famous as the girls and does not bring as much cash if any. He would LOVE to be Kim. He is pretty envious of his sisters. I’ve watch the show, he IS lazy, a whiner and complainer and he’s mean. I know Kim is horrible but Rob is no angel and does not deserve a lot of sympathy either.

      • rya says:

        I agree. He always wanted to be like his sisters but no one cared about him. Even his little sisters have a bigger profile than him.
        So this whole “oh poor Rob” media roll out is a bit suspicious to me.

    • Naye in VA says:

      Yea you have to be an asshat not to see that your brother is suffering. Nobody gains 100lb in less than two years without a medical condition, unless there are serious emotional problems going on. He needs some help and advice from people other than his toxic family.

    • SnarkGirl says:

      Took the words right out of my mouth!

      Best thing this guy could do is run far, far away from the drama circus that is his family. Lay low for a bit, get himself healthy on all levels, then get back to working on his own projects.

    • yolo112 says:

      OK, here goes a deep hidden truth about me… I actually watched a KUWTK show…like the FULL episode and even half of the to be continued part… **hangs head in shame** It was the one where they ended up in family therapy and he Broke. The. Hell. DOWN. and said exactly what he felt and how he saw the family dynamics (with the girls). He was straight ugly face crying and left the room. All those bitches kept their huge fake asses seated and didn’t do a thing, not even Lucifer’s home girl…she just sat there *almost* looking upset (botox only allows so much movement on the face). But really, it broke my heart. Kim, Kourt and Kris didn’t even attempt to comfort him and eventually Ass of Lies got up to do the job.

      I really do feel for him. Yeah, he’s kut from the same kloth but from what I’ve seen, he’s ignored and really emotionally beat up. He doesn’t rush out to get botox, nips, tucks, sucks, this reduced or that enlarged, he’s struggling to hold his own in a family full of fake ass bitches, Hell, even Mr. Jenner himself had tons of work done. Who does this guy have to look up to that’s remotely real??? Watching the show, I never got the feeling that he seemed or acted like a spoiled brat, I see it as him just wanting to find something that gets a small little sliver of attention from his “mom”…because he doesn’t get that. We all know that that biatch has made a career out of pimping out her daughters and totally forgot about Rob. He seems desperate to find a niche of his own and get some positive attention, not just the constant nagging and bitching that he gets 5 fold from all of these “women”…

      I’m Team Rob. Just like I was Team Humps.

      • Lucky says:

        I saw the same episode, it made me feel so bad for him. He was really crying so much so that you could not fake it. Those bitches were so disgusting to him

      • happyfeet says:

        I will confess. I saw that episode as well. Yes me, happyfeet, hater of all things Kardashian, saw that episode and my heart ached for Rob, when those tramps just sat there. From what i remember khloe ran out and comforted him. Kourt tried to grab him and tossed major shade at kris and kim. I want rob to succeed the most. He has potential but just doesn’t realize it. He should’ve done socks, belts and hats for men and put tge line in target for a reaobable price. It wouldve sold. He just needs To get away from them. Unfortunately you can’t choose your family but you can choose your destiny.

      • wolfpup says:

        I love that, “you can’t choose your family, but you can choose your destiny”. Serious lesson – thank you, as it applies to me.

  5. Sisi says:

    Yeah it is totally Rob’s fault that the Kimye wedding was a dlist event. The Ktrash name in RUINED now thanks to his big ass.

    • Jules says:

      At least he earned his the honest way, not through plastic surgery.

    • gefeylich says:

      Kim and the rest of them honestly don’t hear themselves when they make these ludicrous pronouncements, do they? Yeah, your poor chubby brother is “bringing down the family name” – not your stunt weddings, stunt parenthood, porn videos, escorting Eurotrash for kash, fake charities, horrible clothes and general trashiness. Bitch, please.

  6. Sarah says:

    I am indifferent to him but he sounds like he is suffering from depression and his family doesn’t get it. If that is the case the problem is deeper than just working with a personal trainer.

  7. Frida_K says:

    I didn’t see the tape, but didn’t Ray J urinate on Kim?

    Hm. What’s more lurid and “bringing down the good family name” here? Whizz-play p0rn, butts of lies, a momager aligned with Satan, or depression-induced obesity?

    I guess I need more coffee because I wouldn’t have picked the fourth option here.

    • Tracy says:

      I did not see it either (not enough eye bleach in the world) but yes, from what I understand in the unedited version Kim received a golden shower.

    • Dani says:

      Yessss she gets peed on, very willingly. I (unfortunately) saw it.

      • lisa says:

        dani, how does that work? is it on the bed ruining everything or do they take it to the shower?

  8. Stef Leppard says:


  9. Sugar says:

    Tiny hands man.

  10. BeckyR says:

    They are all trash. Can’t “bring down” something that is already as low as you can go.

  11. NewWester says:

    That logo for the nightclub and Rob’s crotch are in a interesting position in that first photo. As for bringing down the family name, Lucifer’s Homegirl should also accept some responsibility
    Also how can one tell if Kim is angry? Her face is so frozen she can’t show any emotion

  12. Foodie says:

    Satan Kris is just hoping to feed off a Rob suicide pity party… Please no flowers.. Cash only.

  13. lucy2 says:

    I hope at some point he said to her “that’s OK, I’ll come to your next wedding”.
    Do they really think they’re some kind of high class, high society family? They’re gross, and we all know how Kim got them famous.

    • doofus says:

      “I’ll come to your next wedding”

      ZING, and OUCH, and…quite frankly…BRILLIANT. Bravo.

    • Wren says:

      Ooooooh BURN!

      I would be so happy if this actually happened…. assuming any of the rest of it actually happened too……

    • word says:

      Rob doesn’t take a back seat to Kim. He does talk back to her. He said “I hope your sex tape haunts you for the rest of your life”. You know Kim hates when people mention her tape.

  14. eliza says:

    As if we needed further proof of how shallow and superficial this family is.

    Ahahahahahahaaaaaaa. A woman with a sex tape complete with golden shower is talking about bringing down the family name? A woman with a 72 days marriage is talking about bringing down the family name? A woman with a friends like Joe Francis is talking about bringing down the family name? I could go on but you get the point.

    I wonder how the Sr.Robert would feel about the family name now and who is actually bringing it down.

    Rob Jr may be a misogynist pig but at least he has an education.

  15. Susan says:

    I love how she is noted as “sex tape star” in the article.

    I do feel bad for Rob and hope he gets some help. I would hate to see him hurt himself or worse. It must have been bad for him to flee his family from a different continent.

  16. Buckwild says:

    Oh god that photo with Rob and a devil at his back. I really hope he gets the help he needs (and that’s not just this weird trainer who is talking to the media) and learns to become his own person away from his family.

  17. Arhodo says:

    The whole lot of them need to disappear. So sick and tired of hearing about this family.

  18. Adrien says:

    Well he’s a college graduate and has an actual job. Well yeah, selling socks whatever, it’s still a job.

  19. Carrie says:

    That’s rich coming from a woman who got famous off a sex tape and trading on her fathers name and success.

  20. Jenn says:

    This Blind Gossip item: says that Rob might have also gone into hiding because he has a secret son?

  21. paola says:

    I wonder if Rob was the oldest child would things been different. My older brother thinks his opinion of me is all that matters EVER and he feels like he is some sort of parent. Everytime he opens his mouth is either to criticize me or lecture me. We love each other but he acts like he’s some kind of life guru only because he’s 6 years older than me.

  22. Mylene - Montreal says:

    The PR Team will made ROB and KIM apparence very soon !!!!! hypokrit people ! Poor Rob ! I feel bad for him.

  23. Miss5280 says:

    Lower than she brought them by being urinated on in a porn film???

    Truly, she has forgotten the trashy things she did in order to get to where she is today.

  24. wow says:

    Is that even possible? Their family name can’t be lower than it already is? I mean, I know their name is a brand, and makes millions. But it’s also a rather tacky brand.

  25. Lem says:

    Gunnar Peterson is absolutely not a Tracy Anderson! How rude

  26. MSMLNP says:

    What is the deal with the men in this family? Bruce, Rob, Brody are all kind of treated like trash by the real trash.

  27. serena says:

    LOL, it really doesn’t take much to ” bring down the family name”, Kim. And she sure should know better.

  28. kimber says:

    He just needs to leave those negative superficial people and live somewhere else and go take a class and re-evaluate life away from where he grew up. Where the people have a different thought process and priorities. . . Some families are not meant to live in each others lives and that’s ok.

  29. pinkytuscadero says:

    last photo- purpley/red rings around eyes=opioid addiction. food is not his only vice.

  30. word says:

    How can she call Rob lazy when Kim is just as lazy. She just signs her name to products and that’s pretty much it. She doesn’t actually “work” at anything. She’s got nerve. She is living the life she has now due to Kanye’s hard work. She wouldn’t be able to afford that house on her own or that expensive wedding orrr those designer clothes she wears. She needs to shut up.

    Also, I’m not surprised about this Kardashian sibling blowout. They had to try to one-up Beyonce and Solange right?

  31. chaine says:

    i’m super-cynical, and i think this is all an elaborate setup for several things. (1) plot line for KUWTK, of course, and one of the following: (2) Rob appearing on Biggest Loser or Celebrity Boot Camp or one of those type shows (3) Rob partnering with this Gunnar person for some kind of fitness tape/diet book/Rob Kardashian workout socks (4) Rob endorsing some sort of weight loss supplement. Rob has been keeping out of the spotlight for months so that his weight gain could make the big shocking splash that it has, thus bringing publicity for these endeavors.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I too am jaded and skeptical but there is no chance, raised as he was by this superficial pack of hyenas, that he would intentionally pack on this weight. The weight gain is either a natural occurrence or a by-product of some other issue in his life. I fully expect it will be kashed in on somehow by PMK, in that I agree with you.

  32. G says:

    I said it once I’ll say it again. Nothing but the most wretched women in that family. Poor little bro never had a chance.

  33. shelley says:

    Kim Kardashian bugs me, not because she made a sex tape, but because she is a lying, grifting, social climbing fameho.

    I’ve seen clips of her sex tape, and there is no way they filmed it themselves. Let’s just say there are some angles shot that the only way they could’ve been shot is if a third person was actually standing there filming her and Ray J. They also talk to the camera like they are talking to the audience at home. She filmed this with the intention of selling it. Period. So she’s a liar. She pretended it got leaked without her permission, fake cried over it, and now she carries on like she’s a freakin virginal princess. Just admit you made a porno and quit acting like you’re above the other porn stars.

    She used Brandy’s mother’s credit card to buy her own self thousands of dollars worth of stuff, without permission, when she was Brandy’s assistant/stylist. When she got called out on it and a suit filed against her she claimed she had permission but quietly paid all the money back. Grifter. Liar.

    The first few seasons of her show, her goal of being famous was quite obvious. She worked really really hard to fameho herself and sell herself. Now she likes to complain about the paps and lack of privacy, when she actually chased those things like it was a full-time job. She wanted it, she got it, now she pretends it’s so terrible and that she should be allowed to live in peace. Liar.

    She’s posed nude or partially nude many times, and each time she acts like her decency was imposed upon. Then later she sees the pics and decides they’re beautiful/tasteful/art so she ends up being ok with it. Liar. She was always ok with it, enough with the false modesty.

    She starts dating Kanye and he slowly gives her a makeover. Stupid Anna Wintour puts them on the cover of Vogue. Stupid Kim thinks the world has forgotten who she really was before she got rich and took up with Kanye. She parades around like she is Lady Mary from Downton Abbey. We are all supposed to forget that she clawed her way to fame and fortune using any way possible and with no talent. Liar. Social climber. She wants to be taken seriously and be respected, but her methods have never been respectable. She doesn’t own who she is or the choices she made. We are supposed to think she’s respectable because she wears high fashion clothes now and hangs out with high fashion people. None of that changes the fact that she fameho’d herself using any way possible and would still be D list if she hadn’t married Kanye. She’s a dishonest person in almost every way possible. She’s dishonest about that tape, about stealing, about calling paps, about plastic surgery, about her weight and size, about her family, about her charitable contributions, and on and on, and then she walks around like she is in the upper echelons of society. She bugs to no end. She is new-money gutter trash and will always be.

    • Dawn says:

      Preach it. I never thought too much of her until she was working the Humphries angle and tried to come out like she was so brave to leave him quickly after her 18 million dollar wedding and was hooked up with Kanye and getting knocked up faster than she could tell Humphries NO to the annulment. She blamed him for everything as do her fans when really it was all about Kim losing fans over her fake for ratings only wedding. I still don’t think she is legally married to KanYe West and I will not until I see proof of a legal wedding with the seal on it. That is how much she is a liar and will always be D-list and KanYe West is no longer respected or popular enough to pull her up as he is falling. Geez they had Joe Francis as a wedding guest and he is a known sexual exploiting pig. That says it all about both she and KanYe.

    • boo says:

      Preach it sister! I’m with you.

    • Ming says:

      Hells yes to everything Shelley said!!
      Kim is a liar. Perhaps the most annoying thing about her..all lies!

  34. Stephanie says:

    Kim is a bitch. Khloe is a bitch. Kourtney is a bitch and Kris is an asshole. I saw an episode of that useless show from 2009 and they were on vacation. Kris humphries was there too. Anyway Kim was talking shit about Rob, and when he heard what she said he got in her face and called her a whore. Of course that was a no no, because her big meat head boyfriend got in Rob’s face and tried to scold him about ”disrespecting” Kim. I was thinking to myself, oh so its fine for Kim to talk shit about her brother, but when he defends himself its disrespectful? Give me a break. She is such a hypocrite. And from what I saw of the show, she was the sister who liked/cared about Rob the least. So he had every right to bail on her wedding. She doesnt give a crap about him. He should cut off all contact with his family, take his money and go somewhere else and make a new life for himself.

  35. Ming says:

    Team rob! I feel for the guy. The family doesn’t support him or seem to even care that he’s suffering.
    Someone mentioned above, Kim is acting all butthurt cause bey and J didn’t show to the wedding, but what about your own brother!? So sad.

  36. Bridget says:

    Of course the guy is depressed. Look at his life – its empty. The man has no job, no direction, no love life. He was content to coast along on his father’s money and then his sister’s fame until it apparently all caught up to him.

  37. M says:

    He should go hang out with Jenner brothers….they have waaaay more normalcy to bring to the table. I saw that episode w/therapy session and it was sad! When kim was knocked up the momager was up her ass! “Kim needs me, i’m going to check on kim, etc…”rob was having a meltdown and all they could do was sit like a bump on a log…those women are assholes

  38. Norman says:

    I’d be upset too if “mom” did everything in the world to pimp out her daughters especially Kim and did nothing for me being the sole son. And as for Rob being fat, well the Kardashians especially Kim aren’t exactly specimens of physical fitness. The Kardashians, especially Kim can really care less about Rob as a brother or even as a human being. For Kim it’s all about extravagant events, million dollar cars, mega houses, a G6, and a shoddy clothing line sold at high prices. If I were him I would change my last name and do my own thing worthwhile. If Kim is concerned that Rob is bringing down her family name, she has already done it with the sex tape how about doing an expose with a reputable media crew on the working conditions of the people who make her clothing line “The Kardashian Kollection,” let’s see how damming that would be, Kim would likely not care anyway.
