Odd man out Kardashian family member, Rob Kardashian, was reportedly rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after feeling ill this weekend and not improving. When the formerKeeping Up With the Kardashians star’s condition failed to improve, his family thought it best to have him medically evaluated. A medical examination discovered that Rob is now a diabetic, a condition he was unaware he had.
Over recent years, Rob has met with more than his fair share of personal battles. The young Kardashian has gained over 100 pounds, struggled with depression and has seesawed over career decisions. Once animated and personable, Rob has seemingly faded to black, opting to take himself out of the public eye, despite being encouraged and supported by various family members. Sister Khloe, who was interviewed by People back in October of this year spoke to the news outlet about her brother stating, “He’s such a great guy. That’s also what’s so infuriating,” Khloé said. “He’s charming, charismatic, everything. But I’m like, where is your will to live? Where is your will to live life? Let’s be around people!” A close family source also spoke to People recently about the effect Rob’s hermit like existence has had on the famous clan, “Rob is still struggling and it makes the family sad.”
One of only a handful of pictures of him from the last few months represented what we can only assume was one of the lowest points in his life thus far. A picture of him arriving back in America just as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were exchanging vows in Florence. A ceremony that Rob Kardashian reportedly skipped after a huge blow-up with both Kim and Khloe of him not wanting to appear in family wedding photos.
Then just this week, we saw another photo of Rob leaving a gym in L.A., which perhaps alluded that he was finally taking control of his life and his health.
It has been well documented that Rob Kardashian has been struggling with his weight. But have things gotten so bad that his momager Kris Jenner is willing to make a deal to get him on the next season of The Biggest Loser?
According to sources that spoke to HollywoodLife.com, that is exactly what is going to happen. But for someone on a reality show, who has pretty much been laying low and not wanting to be photographed because of his weight gain, is documenting his journey on TV really the best option?
