Rob Kardashian is ‘furious’ at the weight comments Kim made to Rolling Stone

Kim Kardashian’s Rolling Stone cover is confusing. She’s not a musician, so some people wondered why she was on the cover. But even Jennifer Aniston once covered the magazine, which hasn’t been a serious music journalism rag in quite some time. In the interview, Kim talked about how her brother, Rob, gained weight because he smoked a lot of weed and played too many video games. She said he definitely didn’t do meth because then “he’d be skinny.”

Kim is usually pretty awful about Rob, which is why he compared her to Gone Girl‘s Amy Dunne. But her statement about meth simply articulates many people’s thoughts about InTouch’s cover story claiming Rob was hooked on meth. Should Kim have commented on Rob’s weight to Rolling Stone? Rob is reportedly furious and won’t take her calls:

Too soon. Rob Kardashian is furious with sister Kim Kardashian after the reality star joked to Rolling Stone that he’d be “skinny” if he was actually using meth.

“Rob and Kim had been cool again and were getting along,” an insider tells Us Weekly exclusively. “Now he’s furious at her again for her comments to Rolling Stone. He was been bitching her out on her phone. He’s mad — pissed as hell.”

Kim’s comments for her Rolling Stone cover story interview came after she was asked about her troubled younger brother, who has kept an extremely low profile since putting on weight in 2013.

“Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes,” she added, before joking about Rob having a larger issue. When RS asked if she thinks “it’s not more like hookers and meth at the Ritz,” the Selfish author responded: “No no. Or he’d be skinny.”

“Rob has blocked Kim on his phone,” the source tells Us. “He doesn’t want to hear what she has to say. He says there’s no excuse she could possibly have for saying that. He will not forgive her.”

[From Us Weekly]

Rob is surely angry with Kim for speaking publicly about his weight, but I doubt she tries to call him, so blocking her would be pointless. Yes, he probably smokes weed all day and has the munchies. Rob was papped at In-and-Out Burger a week ago, and he looks even heavier than last time we saw him. There’s no dancing around that fact, and Rob has opened up discussion about his own weight for years. I still feel sorry for him and feel like there are deeper issues, but (this time) Kim simply said what everyone else was thinking.

    What did he expect from a vapid, self obsessed, creature like Kim? Empathy?

  2. aims says:

    I agree there’s deeper issues there. What bothers me is that Rob no longer wants the attention. So why does Kim feel like she has the right to talk about him? Leave Rob alone. He doesn’t want to be apart of the freak show.

    • word says:

      Kim has nothing else to talk about. Her favorite thing to do is put others down. God only knows what she says during private conversations.

    • Michelle says:

      +1. There are definitely much deeper issues at play. Kim wants to pretend Rob is crazy or just a loser because she doesn’t like how bad he makes their family look. Rob is living proof of the negative aftermath of being willing to sacrifice anything and everything for fame and fortune. Kylie is another mess, but she’s got sex appeal so they can use her. Rob is useless to them, and just like all the other men in Kim’s life, she has disposed of him because he serves no purpose in her life.

      Kim has zero right to talk about Rob. He is a grown man and he has nothing to do with her “brand” or the show. This was really nasty of her, and if this were my sibling, we would be done. No matter what he’s doing with himself, I can’t fathom what would possess someone to publicly humiliate their sibling like this. Even if she doesn’t agree with his lifestyle or his choices, a magazine isn’t the place to discuss that.

      • platypus says:

        Well, she’s learned from the best… It’s clear Kris plays favorites to whichever child is the most “successful” at the moment, and writes off the ones who aren’t getting enough PR for the brand. No wonder they’re all shallow fame wh*res. I hope Rob has managed to cut the cord for good.

    • nikko says:

      She didn’t just bring him up, they (RS) asked her about Rob so she answered. I don’t feel sorry for him. He has alot of good things in his life. He should get the gastric sleeve surgery if he really wants to lose weight.

  3. MediaMaven says:

    awwww, look how nice Kim and Khloe looked in those photos, with some of their original parts still intact.

  4. Alexandra says:

    I want to feel bad for him. But when he was younger and thinner, he was such a douchebag. You know he probably made fun of women that were heavier, so no sympathy from me now. He’s rich, he can easily get help, whether it’s mental or just physical. He doesn’t want it, so it’s on him. That said, Kim is so rude for bringing him up in interviews.

    • Mia V. says:


    • Wren says:

      That’s very true, but look where he likely learned it from. I feel bad for him. I can’t say I LIKE him very much but I do feel bad for him. I saw him on DWTS (my mom loves that show), and it was heartbreaking how happy he looked to be accepted and how he just drank up praise like it was a new experience. Which it probably was.

      • jwoolman says:

        And I remember seeing Kim in the audience when he was on DWTS- his other sisters were watching the stage, Kim looked bored and focused entirely on her phone. She has never cared about him.

      • misery chick says:

        @ Wren: +1,000,000

    • Bridget says:

      There’s a certain amount of projection when it comes to Kim (or Kris) when compared to anyone else – they tend to be so awful that it’s easy to go overboard on the praise or sympathy. Rob Kardashian has issues, but just because he and Kim have been on the outs doesn’t change the fact that he’s something of an entitled prick.

  5. Loopy says:

    I am almost certain had Rob senior been around he would be in a far better place,probably would have used his college degree and took a different route.

    • word says:

      Well of course. If Rob senior was around, Kim’s tape would have NEVER been released and no one would have known who this family was. Rob would have been the successful one and Kim would probably still be hanging out at clubs trying to land herself a rich man.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      Yeah, what Loopy said. Also, I think Rob is suffering from a lack of a strong male presence. I mean, his father Rob Sr. died; his stepfather Bruce became Caitlyn; his brother-in-law Lamar, who he was really tight with, has gone off the rails himself; and don’t get me started on Scott. The two most influential members of the family now are Kris and Kim, two female and soulless vultures. Rob may be a grown man himself but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t still need that kind of support.

  6. kitty28 says:

    I really feel for this guy. I went through something similar years ago where weight crept on due from depression and anxiety caused by things in my past.
    obviously he has some deep seated issues from his upbringing with a mother like kris (or maybe not, I’m guessing) and has lost his way in life. I hope he leaves Hollywood and starts a life that is true and can find some meaning.
    I’m rooting for him.

  7. Nicolette says:

    Really wish he would get his act together, write a tell-all and throw them under the bus.

    • AlmondJoy says:

      That would be awesome! I doubt it though… Kris would cut him off and I think he still gets money from them.

  8. word says:

    I hope Rob writes a tell all book about Kim. It would be so good. She deserves it for always putting Rob down. Why does she care? She’s not good enough of a sister to actually want to see what his issues are…she just wants to talk crap about him instead. Kim thinks that being fat is the worst thing ever. Karma is real and she should watch what she says.

    • Loopy says:

      oohhhhhhhhhhhhh that would be so juicy, because I am sure she does not have no disclosure agreements with her siblings, but she would lawyer up real quick.

    • lisa says:

      krob would be slkwooded off the road before it would be completed

  9. Miss M says:

    Khloe’s has he public sympathy, Kourtney eill ignore Kim’s bs, who Kim will mock? Rob who is fragilr and will react.

    I wonder if dating Rita Ora was the last variable for his downspiral…

  10. Michelle says:

    Rob’s life isn’t Kim’s business to discuss. Rob is not a little boy and he is not on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” anymore, therefore he is not a part of her brand whatsoever and she has no right or reason to talk about him, period. I don’t think what Kim does is really “tough love.” I think Kim throws people, mostly men, away. Have a relationship that’s less than perfect? Immediately divorce this person without even telling them that you’re doing so. Kim has a track record of acting almost as if men don’t have feelings or don’t deserve to be treated like their feelings matter. Kris Jenner had blatant affairs right under her husband’s nose and emasculated Bruce on national television. I think for both Kris Jenner and Kim, men are totally expendable. It became clear a long time ago that a huge part of Rob’s issue is that he never got the same kind of love and affection and attention that his mom bestows on his sisters because he isn’t a cash cow. Rob is proof of how badly fame affected this family, and because of that, I think Kim just wants to laugh him off like he’s either crazy or a total loser so that the truth seems less obvious—they sold their souls for fame and fortune and whoever couldn’t contribute got left behind.

    I do believe that Rob is a spoiled brat to a degree because I remember seeing on their show that he would break down and cry because his mom wasn’t making him rich the same way she was doing for his sisters and I would love to see him get his shit together on his own and leave them all behind.

    What Kim did was wrong, inappropriate and really hurtful. It’s one thing to discuss your brother and his problems and say these things to someone you actually know in private, but to say them to a journalist to be written and published for the world to see? Says a lot more about Kim than it does about Rob.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Exactly, Kim who usually plays like an innocent angel is sharpening her claws publicly on Rob. He’s down and she can kick him.

    • swack says:

      But this is pretty much Kim’s MO. Not that it is okay for her to do so because it isn’t. Whenever she is not getting the attention she thinks she should have she goes after someone else and makes their life more miserable. She really needs to sit down and keep her mouth closed.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Maybe he was a spoiled brat, who wasn’t as a teenager, the fault lies with his mother for putting him on TV and exposing him to ridicule because he was immature. Children need to be nurtured and cultivated not exploited, his mother is the root of all his issues.

  11. AlmondJoy says:

    Wow Kim looks great in that first pic! Her smile looks just like her evil mother’s, but she still looks really pretty. What a difference.

    I feel bad for Rob. I hope he gets help. I wonder if he’s close at all to The Jenner boys.. Brody and the rest. I’m sure they understand what being a part of that family can do to you.

  12. Barrett says:

    I would be mad if my sibling did that. She should shut up sometimes, hurtful!

  13. polonoscopy says:

    He has depression. What she is describing are often symptoms of depression, the weight could be from SSRIs and she’s falling into the “get of the couch and DO SOMETHING” school of not understanding depression or caring about depression at all.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Exactly. All the money and resources in the world doesn’t magically change your brain chemistry, it’s amazing to me how people always think you just snap your fingers and you’re perfect again.

      • swack says:

        No it doesn’t magically change the brain chemistry but having all the money and resources makes it easier for you to get the help you need. Only Rob can help himself.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Money does not make it any easier to get help, yes it is easier to afford but that is only one aspect of seeking help. There are plenty of resources for people to get help at all economic levels and it’s classist to say he’s rich therefore his depression is less serious or less legitimate because he can afford help. Look at his horrible family situation, no amount of money can make up for the neglect and abuse he is experiencing from his “loved” ones, and when you feel worthless it is very difficult to seek help.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        Exactly Bob, mental health isn’t a broken leg.

        The very body part that processes your thoughts and needs to go to see a specialist is the one not functioning properly. That in turn can cause a whole host of other physical issues which is why we see weight gain and sluggishness associated with depression.

        I don’t even like Rob but I know about depression and it’s never as simple as people make it.

    • pinetree13 says:

      I personally don’t believe he has the ‘chemical inbalance’ caused depression that some people absolutely have.
      I don’t like how all depression is lumped as one in today’s society. Sometimes, people have legitimate reasons they feel depressed. For example, Rob is depressed because he has DONE NOTHING with his life. He has never achieved anything (other than DWTS). At all. But it’s his own fault! He is lazy and has never attempted to go back to school or work hard at anything. He wants to do as little real work as possible for as much recognition as possible. Since he isn’t getting that and some of his family are, he feels depressed.

      So basically, I don’t really feel sorry for him. He is only depressed because he is choosing to wallow in self-pity. I don’t believe for one second his depression is from mental health issues. It’s completely because he knows he’s the least marketable of the clan. Remember, this guy is a serious misogynist and has made HORRIBLE comments about past girlfriends and women’s appearances. He doesn’t deserve or sympathy. But that’s just how I feel.

      • jwoolman says:

        Rob has been diagnosed with at least mild to moderate OCD, and such disorders tend to run together. It is far more likely that he is indeed dealing with clinical depression, he really does show all the signs. People would have said the same things you do about one of my family members before he was finally diagnosed and treated. He wasted years trying to analyze his childhood with counsellors until the real cause was discovered. When depression after a loss or unhappy event doesn’t lift in a reasonable time (as our body chemistry makes it do when running properly), you always should suspect there is a chemical imbalance that is keeping the mood down and pushing it further down. Recreational drugs, including alcohol, are often used to self-medicate such conditions, but ultimately tend to cause more problems.

        Karma for Kim is coming as Kanye becomes more and more manic and harder to be around. If he is bipolar, he may also be having depressive episodes but it is not unusual to be basically unipolar (or his problem might be due to other disorder, but he is definitely periodically irrational). In the manic phase, he will be always busy and she will mistake that for ambition. Wait til he crashes, darling.

  14. Me too says:

    Kim was SOOO much thinner then. She must be at least 20-40lbs heavier now. I’m not sure she has any room to talk.

  15. Dragonlady Sakura says:

    Rob’s not gonna get sympathy from Kim because she’s vapid and uncaring. If it’s not about her, she doesn’t care. If he wants to get his crap together, he needs to cut his family out while he works on himself.

  16. anne_000 says:

    I noticed that the Kardashian sisters have some sort of pact in which while they say bad things about each other on the show because it’s good for the ratings, they won’t such things outside of the shows like in interviews.

    But Kim doesn’t seem to have such a pact with Rob. If that’s the case, then she needs to stop being friendly to his face if she’s going to talk smack about him in public to reporters. That kind of thing develops a heavy mistrust.

  17. GPSB says:

    She could have refuted any meth rumors by saying simply, “They’re untrue. My brother wishes to have his privacy respected and other than calling b.s. on that story, he’s off the table as a topic with me.”

    Of course she didn’t do that. She’s a horrible human being.

  18. Aren says:

    Why would Rolling Stone do that? Are they trying to become The National Enquirer? What kind of article would need to publish such statements?
    And hey, I would eat and be stoned all day if I had been of that Klan.

  19. alicegrey12 says:

    I have no sympathy for any of the Kartrashians.

  20. Mylene - Montreal says:

    it’s all for the show y’all !

    • me says:

      Yeah I don’t think they even know how to live their real lives anymore. They just do things for ratings. It’s all lies and b.s.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      He left the show and lives like a hermit, everything Kim does is for the show but I think her brother would like to be left alone.

  21. jwoolman says:

    Rob just needs to cut off Kim entirely. She doesn’t care about him, just herself and her brand. She is toxic and he needs to realize nothing is going to change that. He needs to stay away from her completely. She will hurt him again and again, all while playing the “tough love” role in public. That’s not how tough love works.

    Kim might be feeling particularly untouchable because of Kanye, she no longer needs her siblings to be famous. Her fangs and claws will be coming out more and more, starting with the most dispensable.

    • MediaMaven says:

      ……….yet another reason why that Kimye divorce will be EPIC!

      • kanyekardashian says:

        They’re never getting divorced – why would you even think that? They found exactly what they need in each other – someone else to worship every single shallow thing about themselves. The only way they’re ever getting divorced is if Kim gets paralyzed from the nose down and can no longer sexually service Kanye. He ain’t sticking around for that nonsense. It’s the thing he “loves” most about her.

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Never is a long time, those two will not be able to stick it out in the long run. Kanye may have the wherewithal but Kim does not; we all see how she treats her siblings, all lifetime relationships, she is not able to maintain any relationship beyond its sell by date. As soon as the luster is lost, the relationship will fizzle, children or no. Sooner or later they will get sick of each other’s ego.

    • pinetree13 says:

      ” She doesn’t care about him, just herself and her brand. She is toxic ”

      You just described every member of their family! They are all SUPER self-involved. That is why Rob is depressed, because he is waaayyy too self-involved and self-pitying. None of these people use their vast wealth to do anything charitable or to make the world a better place. It’s all me, me, me, selfie, me, me, me, selfie

      • Bob Loblaw says:

        Everyone is self involved, I don’t know why people always criticize people for this flaw we all share. I’m not a fan of Rob but I feel bad for him because it is really hard to “snap out of it” especially if you have been raised by she-wolves (no offense to wolves) and have no self esteem. Money or no, it sucks to have someone undermine you from the day you’re born. Siblings should be supportive of one another, not throw each other under a bus in a magazine, for giggles. And parents should protect their children from exposure and criticism, not put them on TV for the whole world to judge and jeer. Rob is not perfect, no one is, but he deserves sympathy, his situation sucks.

      • jwoolman says:

        I think Khloe and Kourtney have shown the capacity to love someone other than themselves. Rob gets hurt for the same reason Khloe gets hurt – for all their faults, they have human emotions and responses, unlike the robotic Kim and Demon Mother. Kourtney has found a purpose in caring for her children, and up and down though her relationship with Scott is- it’s the healthiest one in the bunch. Khloe and Rob would be much happier if they had a focus beyond themselves and downsized their cost of living expectations, but Rob has more going on than that. He does have medical issues, both “physical” and “mental/emotional” – it’s all really physical, but what we call mental disorders affect behavior and so are much more difficult for the person and everyone around them. Trying to deal with this under Kardashian Kamera conditions must be awful. Even hiding away from the Klan doesn’t work to give him some privacy, they keep chattering on stupidly about him and faking telephone calls to him for drama on their stupid show and in Kim’s case, to anyone who will listen and print it. A normal family wouldn’t be obsessed about his weight gain, for instance. Sometimes people do gain a lot of weight, they usually don’t get so tormented about it that they have to walk out of weddings.

  22. Amy says:

    I truly feel sorry for him….he clearly is depressed and needs major help. I don’t watch their show but everything I read or see is disgusting about this family. Kylie (only three years older than my own daughter) parading around looking like a hooker and having her own home while dating a 25 year old rapper??? UGH! I wish this whole family would go away, but that is probably not going to happen. However, as someone who has struggled with a 20 year history of depression, it is a horrible thing to deal with. You need medication (usually) and intense psychotherapy. Don’t you think all of us would need psychotherapy if we grew up in this family? Just very sad all around….I hope one day he does get the right kind of help!

  23. kanyekardashian says:

    I generally have a rule about ever commenting on anyone’s looks or body, but I have to say it. For someone with such a huge, fat a$$ herself, she should probably think about how it makes her feel when people criticize her weight. She’s just vile, as is the entire family.

    • pinetree13 says:

      Personally I’m thinking that’s why she resents him. She probably denies herself a lot of food that she would love to have in an effort to keep herself as marketable (attractive) as possible. So when he gives in and binges on whatever he wants, it probably angers her. Both because she secretly wishes she didn’t have to watch what she eats (she’s made very food -obsessy comments before about what she won’t eat) AND because she probably resents that he doesn’t exercise the same discipline to have his best appearance possible (which they were all raised to believe is the most important aspect of oneself).

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      When people “let themselves go” it is often a physical response to deep emotional stress. It’s easy to recognize self destructive behavior when we see people drowning themselves in calories, it’s a very common response to unhappiness in our society. Kim probably has a whole host of issues with her brother but because they were raised to be image obsessed, attacking his “fatness” is acceptable in their family and in our society. If he had cancer, she would be all fake sympathy, but since it’s the harder to define “emotional” issues and weight, she’s just tears into him. She’s a heartless bitch and life will humble her in the end, especially If the love you sow is equal to the love you reap.
