Rob Kardashian pictured taking drugs, his family wants him in rehab

Rob Kardashian

I honestly don’t know how feel about Rob Kardashian these days. Okay, I feel badly for him. That much is true. It’s terrible that everyone picks on him for his weight, and the paparazzi are waiting to take “glum” photos of him as he leaves the gym. His trainer, Gunnar Peterson, keeps talking to the press about Rob’s weight loss plans. There are rumors that Kris Jenner has been trying to land a Biggest Loser spot for Rob. I do realize that he’s either being used as a Kardashian storyline pawn, or he’s playing along. I don’t think his weight gain is something he did on purpose for the family show, but maybe he’s a willing part of the drama.

We heard a few weeks ago that Rob was possibly addicted to pain killers and Sizzurp. He has previously denied a rumored rehab visit. TMZ has some exclusive new photos of Rob at some drug bender of a party. He’s sitting next to a Sizzurp cup that is very clearly labelled as such. He’s smoking pot. His family is very concerned and wants him in rehab:

Rob Kardashian’s family wants Rob to get help for what they say is a very bad drug problem … sources directly connected with the family tell TMZ.

Our sources say the family is well aware of what has been going on with Rob, depicted by these photos during a drug-fueled party a few days ago.

You can see Rob holding a double cup … the container of choice for Sizzurp. The cup on the table actually has the words, “Codeine Boys” emblazoned on it. He’s also seen smoking weed.

We’re told the Kardashians have been calling rehab facilities, but Rob refuses to go. They feel desperate because they don’t know what to do and hope pictures like these may change Rob’s mind.

The Kardashians have stepped up before … attempting an intervention for Lamar Odom’s drug problem.

[From TMZ]

Radar has another story about “the sock mogul.” A source says he’s avoiding his family and “has no reason to talk to Kim.” He’s also been ignoring Khloe’s phone calls and texts and “really isn’t in a good place.” Is he really ignoring Khloe? He’s overseeing the construction on her home, and he responds when she tweets at him. Maybe he wants to make it look like he isn’t ignoring his family. I truly can’t blame Rob if he’s ignoring Kim. She’s terribly cruel to him.

    They need to do an intervention.

    • briargal says:

      A crazy family do an intervention??? I don’t condone doing drugs but it’s totally understandable being he is a member of the family that he is. He totally needs to get far away from this sick family. Hopefully he has some sane friends who can do an intervention on him but not his family!!! Besides, Mommy would only want to help him if it makes money for her!

      • word says:

        Yeah I see PMK wanting cameras to follow Rob through this ordeal and he’s probably not having it. Who in his family is sane enough and caring enough to give a damn about Rob? Which one???? He is close to Khloe but do you guys think Khloe might be sippin that sizzurp and smoking weed with Montana ? You think she just sits and watches? I don’t know….maybe she is clean, who knows. I wonder if Rob blames Khloe for his addictions? Maybe living with Lamar was really bad for Rob. Maybe Rob had addiction problems before Lamar even came along? Who really knows the truth?

      • briargal says:

        @word–I think just being a member of this stupid, crazy family is bad for Rob! He needs to tell them to leave him alone and not have anything to do with the whole lot of famewhores!

    • Caz says:

      It’s not up to his family to get him help. He needs to do that himself. And without it being this season’s main storyline on the kartrashian show.

    • lee says:

      Oh they will do an intervention–of course! It will make for lots of attention and ratings…these pics have been put out there by them for that reason and that reason only. These people can buy ANYONE, the person who snapped them would blackmail for a fortune before leaking them–what are we idiots! These pics are SOLELY for storylines and ratings and a new project for the (ha ha ha ha!) “sock mogul” LOL!

  2. GeeMoney says:

    He’s gained waaaaay more than 40 pounds.

    • qwerty says:

      I saw his pics a few weeks back and couldn’t be bothered but wanted to write that he reminds me of Eminem when he was taking pills. Got very fat as well.

  3. mayamae says:

    I just noticed he has his mom tattooed on his arm. Why is it that the children most scorned are the ones who are most devoted? It’s sad.

    • Chicagogurl says:

      This and it really really is. Hungry for love.

    • lassie says:

      This is the saddest, most insightful statement I have read about the Kardashian family. Nicely done.

    • mayamae says:

      Thanks Lassie. I’ve been in nursing for years, and have seen it all. I guarantee that the family that seems the most attentive, wails the loudest and throws themselves on the floor at a relatives death, comes from an extremely dysfunctional family. It’s heartbreaking because they never get the closure they crave.

      • tessy says:

        That’s for sure. I work with someone just like that. She doesn’t go to her parent’s place for Christmas and Thanksgiving, or ever have them over. She fights with her sisters all the time and takes it out on us at work too. Her father has been sick for a few years and she got a call at work that he was in the hospital dying and to come right down. She went absolutely insanely hysterical, shrieking and screaming. That was over a year ago and the man is still with the world. Very dysfunctional family, one of her sisters is also her first cousin, the old man messed around with his sister in law while his wife was giving birth. Given how she acts I wonder if he messed around with more than his sil.

      • Christin says:

        This has been my observation as well, just from observing people I know. It’s not only dysfunction, but also those who choose not to be very involved with their family members until the end. Those who have been involved and have actually helped usually have more peace and a clear conscience at the end.

    • kri says:

      I honestly believe Kris Jenner is a genuinely bad creature. She is responsible for ruining the lives of her children, and if I was Rob, who must know deep down inside what kind of mother(?) he really has, I would get myself a year-long stay in rehab and a protection order from them all. If he needs money, he could strike his own deals and let the tell-alls begin! He has got to get himself help, though and only he can do that.

  4. Syko says:

    To me, this seems like Pimp Mama’s attempt to get him back under her control. They did the same thing with Lamar Odom. The family “stepping up” makes me laugh. These self-absorbed people don’t step up for anyone unless it’s to get attention or rake in more money.

    • jwoolman says:

      Yes, that was my first thought also. The Demon Mother has started her planted stories campaign on Rob to help their ratings. Stay tuned.

      Demon Mother and Khloe both have real problems at least with alcohol. I’ve suspected Khloe had no problem with Lamar’s drug use and most likely shared it until his cheating became too obvious. It was the publicity about the cheating that threw them into “intervention” mode. With Rob, I imagine if he were skinny they wouldn’t be concerned about any drug use.

    • Maya Memsaab says:

      “Stepping up”? I can see this family, quite literally, stepping *on* each other with their tasteless, ventilation-cutting high heels for ratings.

    • Badirene says:

      The first thought I had was power move by PMK, the second thought was “yep the first thought was probably the right one”.

    • shannon says:

      This ^^^ was my first thought too. I’m not doubting he needs help, but I think PMK is selling these pictures and stories to tabloids for profit/attention rather than going to these people (Lamar, Rob, Bruce) and handling these issues privately. I really don’t think she gives a F about their well-being. Her own son. That’s low, no wonder he’s staying away. I really do feel bad for him.

    • Syko says:

      It seems to me that if Rob were heavy into the drug scene, he’d lose weight, instead of gaining. I don’t believe Lamar ever had the problem they claimed, and I don’t believe this either. Who knows if the photo they have is real? Photoshop experts like the K Klan would be able to fix those right up.

      • Jane says:

        Smoking pot and drinking wine at night made me sit on my butt, and I gained 20 pounds. I quit! 🙂 back to working out instead for the natural high.

      • mayamae says:

        Weight loss is more typical, but both Philip Seymour Hoffman and the Toronto mayor were big guys who abused drugs. It’s sad in a way, because drastic weight loss is often one of the signs that loved ones pick up on.

        I wonder if Rob was on long term Adderall for ADD/ADHD, and recently went off it.

      • Syko says:

        Good for you, Jane. 🙂 Pot will do that for you. But he’s being accused of codeine. I’m no drug expert, but I don’t think it gives you munchies. Personally, it makes my hair itch.

      • qwerty says:

        Depends what you’re taking. Eminem, at the height of his addiction (who this guy reminds me of) was really fat. He just slept and ate, and took pills (painkillers and sleeping pills).

      • jwoolman says:

        Certain prescription drugs can make weight gain very easy and weight loss very difficult. For example, lithium treatment or bipolar seems to interfere with carbohydrate metabolism, among other things. So the weight can creep up fast but not drop the way it should if you just eat less and weigh more. Thyroid problems can also make weight loss difficult even for the most active and disciplined dieter. So there can be plenty of reasons for the weight gain besides munchies from pot. He also is getting older and like many men, keeps eating the way he could when he was more active and still growing. But he has a trainer, he should do all right if Demon Mother stays away from him. I can’t imagine that a weight loss reality show would be good for him- he needs to shut down those cameras entirely. He used to be athletic so that would be his norm.

    • lucylu says:

      I agree with you, I think they want sympathy and attention. Didn’t believe the Lamar stories either, the drug abuse happened out the blue and all of sudden we hear nothing. Where is he by the way?

      • qwerty says:

        He was papped just yesterday or maybe 2 years ago, I remember seeing a thumbnail on the daily fail. We hear nothing cause he’s not on the show anymore and contrary to what the Kardashians (plus Alessandra Ambrosio, Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Garner and more) would have you think, you CAN be a celeb and not get papped every day, even if you are in LA. When was the last time you heard about Kim’s ex-husband?

      • qwerty says:

        *maybe 2 DAYS ago lol

      • Christin says:

        I find the Lamar stories a bit unbelievable as well. He was supposedly in such a bad place, but in recent pics he looks fine and no more headlines about his alleged dire problems.

        The stories about the men may be deflection for the women’s real issues and behavior.

    • lisa says:

      ita. i dont think a drug problem would upset her at all. it would get more magazine covers than socks.

      you know what would upset PMK? becoming an accountant and moving to des moines and living a happy, quiet life that cant be sold to a magazine or tv show. that would kill her.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      I agree, this is exactly like the smear campaign they put out on Lamar and would have put out on the hump if he weren’t squeaky clean. PMK is the devil’s apprentice, run Rob, run your fat ass far away and never look back. Take your sock profits and head for the hills.

  5. aims says:

    I feel badly for him. I don’t think there’s a real safe place to fall in his family. I don’t know if there was a tipping point for his problems or maybe it has been a long time coming. I am sympathetic.

  6. Josefa says:

    I just don’t know with this guy. I’ve always got the feeling he tried to stay as low-profile as possible. I mean, at least he hasn’t intentionally offended a whole community at a baby’s birthday just to stay on the press.

    Gosh, I just can’t believe how it must be to have a mother like that. Sending you to a TV show to lose weight? Eeeek. Can’t you just keep some more veggies around at home? Or calling off his lazy a*s when he doesn’t go out jogging?

  7. FingerBinger says:

    This family is always doing something for the cameras. They’re always doing something for attention. I can never tell what’s real and what’s made up for public consumption.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Real or not, Rob was raised in this s**tstorm of narcissism, materialism and vanity; he needs to leave and not look back, these people are toxic.

  8. G says:

    So this family that is worth millions uses the tabloids to humiliate and embarrass him into rehab? I really hope he gets it together and just comes out stronger than all of them.

  9. only1shmoo says:

    I can’t help but feel bad for this guy when I see how dismal he looks in pictures. TBH, if I were a member of the Kardashian clan, I’d probably be getting over-baked and high on codeine too.

  10. serena says:

    I feel bad for him, I guess he is in a bad place lately but he should get help wheter it comes from his family or not. Just get help, get the hell away from that family and start a new life.

  11. nico says:

    “They feel desperate because they don’t know what to do and hope pictures like these may change Rob’s mind.”

    I can’t believe TMZ just admitted the family was behind these pictures being released. Harvey is getting sloppy.

    • whatsmyname? says:

      I hope TMZ did it on purpose. I’m sick of their game of selling out their own family members like that.

    • Marx says:

      I caught that too. PMK is an asshole, and this was probably her way of punishing him for not doing what she thought is best for her “brand.”

      If I were Rob I would avoid PMK and Kim at all costs and try to focus on my relationship with the other two (who are unfortunately enmeshed with PMK).

      What sucks is that Bruce is probably also extremely critical of Rob’s weight. I remember him telling Khloe she was fat and that he knew she knew it too because (at that moment) she was wearing all black. Khloe couldn’t have been more than ten pounds heavier with a flat stomach, no rolls or anything. It’s obviously just her body type. Anyway, Rob is probably getting it from all sides.

      There was a study done and others being critical of your weight can actually cause you to gain weight.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        I agree but he’s not a child, he needs to cut them all lose and leave them in the dust. He’s not a teenager, these people are not healthy for him, time to move on.

  12. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    I can’t get over his resemblance to Benji and Joel Madden – it looks like he could be their triplet.

  13. me says:

    Hey doesn’t Kanye smoke weed or am I wrong? So it’s ok for him to smoke it but not Rob? Money talks in that family.

  14. Talie says:

    You know what’s sick about this… his family probably sold the photos to TMZ. Kris is *tight* with TMZ, so is Kim — with Harvey’s main guy Mike, the chubby guy on TMZ TV all the time. They are always given a heads up about what goes up on that site.

  15. Meghna says:

    It looks like Rob knew he was being photographed and he was okay with. Must of been someone he trusts taking the picture. Wouldn’t be ONE BIT surprised, if it was his only family that leaked the pictures.

    • me says:

      or maybe Rob is in on it? He is a Kardashian after all.

    • swack says:

      My take on it is, if he doesn’t want to be photographed why go to a public gym? I’m sure there is one in the house where he is living or in one of the houses.

  16. me says:

    Well isn’t this convenient? NOW the family cares? NOW pics come out? The fam is worried about their slipping ratings…they are desperate for as much publicity as they can get. Rob is now their pawn. Gross on so many levels.

  17. FLORC says:

    He’s clearly in a bad place. I doubt any of this is on purpose since he’s acting genuinely ashamed of his appearance. I feel for the guy. His family is kind of nutty and self involved while he hasn’t found his voice or motivation.

    Posting these stories don’t really help him or keep things neutral either. It only stirs the pot for him.

  18. PixieWitch says:

    Kris Jenner to Rob: “Gas, Ass or Grass, No one rides for free”

  19. moo says:

    I’d be on drugs too if my last name was Kardashian. The humiliation would be just too great to take on my own!

  20. Dommy Dearest says:

    They aren’t worried about him. Getting him into rehab means more attention for their family. He gets out, does tons of interviews, and bam a whole new interest in them and E! continues to swing from the nuts of the Kartrashian family. It’s simple.

  21. brianna says:

    I don’t feel sorry for him, karma is a bitch. Didn’t he used to call out girls for being fat and ugly? And with the drug thing, he has probably been into that for years seeing as he is a rich man child in LA.
    I assume PMK is just leaking these photos to TMZ now to try and up the dismal ratings KUWTK is getting.

  22. lee says:

    This is SO funny that we are supposed to believe this! They have far too much money for us to accidentally know this because of photos being supposedly leaked! They are so desperate to stay relevant! I’m so embarrassed for them that they know their popularity is dwindling! They are so pathetic!
