Rob Kardashian In Rehab?
Rob Kardashian is not in rehab in Florida, despite a new report. The website Gossip Extra reported late Thursday that Kardashian “quietly checked into a beachside Palm Beach County drug and booze rehab center over the weekend.” But now Kris Jenner says it’s untrue.
According to Gossip Extra, Rob is doing a 60-day program that could be extended. The outlet quotes Mark Behar, a supposed friend of Kardashian, as saying he’s “in good spirits.” Behar, a celebrity bodyguard who lives in the area, told the site he helped Kardashian get situated in the treatment center, and that the youngest Kardashian will “probably lose 10 to 20 pounds within the first few weeks by just being in rehab and daily programs relating to his detox.”
Gossip Cop reached out to a rep for Rob, but did not hear back on Thursday. Kris Jenner, however, told “Entertainment Tonight” on Friday that the rehab claim was “completely fabricated.”
As Gossip Cop has reported, Kardashian has retreated from the spotlight over the last year as he battles depression, excessive weight gain, and other issues. On an episode of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” that aired in April but was filmed earlier this year, Kris Jenner cried over her son’s apparent refusal to go to rehab, confessing she feared he was “going to die” if “drastic” action wasn’t taken. Regardless, he is currently not in rehab.
