Kris Jenner Made Rob Kardashian Gain Weight To Score Fitness Deal?!

Truth rating: 0

“Too many carbs aren’t the only thing behind Rob Kardashians dramatic weight gain,” begins a piece from In Touch, which claims Kris Jenner wanted her son to “gain as much weight as possible so she could launch a weight-loss campaign for him.” Say what?

The mag, which has been repeatedly blasted by virtually every single member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan for repeatedly spreading false stories about the family, quotes a so-called “source” as saying, “Kris is hoping to get a deal for him.”

According to the supposed “source,” “She told him the bigger he got, the more money they all could make.” The tab goes on to point out that Jenner has “brokered weight-loss deals for Rob’s sisters,” with the “insider” noting, “She is the brains behind the girls making so much money.” “Rob is all for getting there, too,” adds the “source.”

Wow. As in wow, this story is beyond ridiculous. If any of the writers at In Touch actually bothered to watch the family’s reality shows, they would know that Rob has struggled with his weight for years, and that every one of his family members — including Jenner — has worked to help him get in shape and eat healthy. And Rob himself has attributed his most recent weight gain to his split from Rita Ora. Once again, In Touch is thin on the facts.
