It's no secret that Rob Kardashian has been having some issues. Following his very-public breakup with pop star Rita Ora after accusations of her cheating, Rob seemed to meltdown and lose focus. His career ambitions, including his sock line, are not panning out and he's always been featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians dealing with financial and identity struggles as his sisters bask in the success of reality TV fame. He was even left out of this year's family Christmas card!
The sole Kardashian male (I'm not counting Bruce Jenner – sorry!) has been battling his weight and all but disappeared from public life this year. Then he bailed on Kim Kardashian's massive wedding fiasco, very publicly leaving Paris the day before the nuptials took place amid reports of Kim fat shaming him. Butt, perhaps, Rob had a crystal ball that told him of the chaos.

Upon returning to the states Rob deleted his entire twitter feed – and all his twitter friends – including his sisters and mother! Rob has since re-added everyone and been spotted hitting up a celeb hotspot gym. There's also the rumors that Rob fathered a secret son and is quietly dealing with that after Kris Jenner ordered it be kept secret.
However new reports say Rob's true issues are that he believes reality TV has destroyed his family as they became consumed with fame and fortune!
"Rob made the decision months ago that he didn’t want to have a recurring storyline on the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and drastically cut back on filming,” a source revealed to Radar Online.
“Rob feels that the reality show has truly ruined his family, and that momager Kris Jenner is always on the look out for the next big deal for one of her daughters," the source adds.
Furthermore Rob believes his family has always placed him second to his sisters and his recent appearance change and floundering sock line have only added to this feeling! "His significant weight gain has only added to the stress in his life. He has been working out but has very bad eating habits. He just feels very alone.”
The source explains that the incidents in Paris really brought all the family issues to a peak. “Kim and Rob haven’t been speaking to each other for months…she thinks he is lazy, and bringing down the family name because of his physical appearance. After arriving in Paris, Rob and Kim got into a very heated argument because she thought he was just moping around the hotel. She encouraged him to go out and sight see, which he declined to do."
Since Rob was already feeling incredibly self-conscience, after Kim accused him of selling out his family, he decided to flee."During the course of the argument, Rob was accused by Kim of leaking negative stories about her to the press," the source adds. "That was the final straw for Rob, because that is something he would never do.”
"With sister Khloé Kardashian filming out of state for Kourtney & Khloé Take The Hamptons, Rob feels more isolated than ever," concludes the source. "Everyone in his family is off doing their own thing, but no one seems that concerned with Rob’s well-being.”
The Kardashians filmed a family therapy session on a previous season of KUWTK, which featured Rob bawling while Kim and Kris looked on stone-faced as Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian comforted him. Rob's feelings of inadequacy seem to be nothing new, and he's always struggled to find his niche. It does seem he has a close bond with step-brothers Brody and Brandon Jenner, so hopefully he finds some support there.
By the way, in the promo photo for the latest season of KUWTK, Rob is also left out!
