Khloe Kardashian: Brother Rob Has Developed “Social Anxiety”
Khloe Kardashian opened up about her brother Rob and his ongoing struggles while hosting a party at 1OAK in Las Vegas on Friday. Over the past year or so, Rob has largely taken himself out of the public eye, fleeing his sister Kim’s wedding last spring and dealing with issues including his weight and relentless tabloid scrutiny. His big sister has concerns.
“I just feel, especially over the last year, Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety,” she told Wonderwall. “He’s definitely not at his happiest place that he once was, and I know he can get to that happy place and he will.” She said of the rut in which Rob seems to find himself, “We all kind of get to a place where you don’t know where to go in life or whatever, so I think it’s important for him to know that he always has people to lean on and it’s not unnatural for people to not know even where to begin. It’s a growing process. I will always be his No. 1 supporter.”
Earlier this week, Rob turned 28, and his family expressed their support for him on social media. On Instagram, Khloe posted a photo of her brother in better timers, captioning it, “Happy birthday @robkardashian!!!!!! Never will I ever meet another man as great as you! I know this is the year where you will find your happiness again! I will be right by your side, holding your hand, every step of the way!!! I adore you my one and only brother!! Happy Happy Happy birthday!!” Gossip Cop hopes Rob Kardashian is in a better place emotionally by his 29th birthday.
