Rob Kardashian is “depressed” and refuses to get help, according to a new report that says the Kardashians have staged “multiple interventions.”

As Gossip Cop has reported, Kardashian has been largely absent from the public eye since fleeing sister Kim’s wedding last May. At the time, Kardashian was in a months-long battle with weight gain, and had spoken about his unhappiness on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” which also showcased the family’s attempts to help him. But things became more alarming in recent days. As Gossip Cop reported, after sister Khloe said her brother is suffering from “social anxiety,” Rob took to Instagram to seemingly rip Kim, posting a photo comparing her to “the b*tch from Gone Girl.”

Kardashian family sources initially downplayed the shocking message as Kardashian just playing around, but there seems to be more to his disturbing post. “He’s sad, he’s bitter, he’s single. He is very depressed and has been [for a while],” a source tells People, explaining, “It’s really hard for him that his sisters are so public and he looks like the shut-in.”

While his sisters’ empire is only getting bigger, Kardashian has struggled to find success with his own efforts, which most recently included a sock line. There have also been allegations of drug use, but the family’s interventions have reportedly failed. Another People insider says, “He is very against therapy and any kind of rehab. But his family will continue to push for him to get help until he does.”

“The attitude has always been that when Rob gets his act together, starts working out and loses weight, everything will be good and he will be happy,” continues the outlet’s insider. “But behind the weight gain is this very unhealthy mental state that he keeps struggling with.”

The comments seem to jive with what Khloe said last week. The reality star told an interviewer that her brother is “definitely not at his happiest place that he once was,” and said that “especially over the last year, Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety.”

She further shared, “I know he can get to that happy place and he will. 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.”
