The Kardashain/Jenner family is known for living their entire lives in front of the E!’s cameras for their reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and when they aren’t being filmed, they are supplementing their need for attention with a constant barrage of Instagram posts. I’d say Kim Kardashian is the worst offender of the bunch, but perhaps she’s just trying to make up for brother Rob’s absence on social media. She may want to rethink that…
Rob, the only male offspring of Kris Jenner, used to be a fixture in the reality realm like his sisters. He relished in his friendships with Lamar Odom and Scott Disick, and he was especially close to sister Khloe. However, after gaining a lot of weight and rumors of addiction, Rob decided to take a hiatus from reality and his family. He was notoriously absent from Kim’s over-the-top wedding to Kanye West, and she has been less than supportive of his struggles.

Well, he’s back…on Instagram, at least. Technically, Rob never left the social media site, but he rarely posts. When he does, he often deletes his posts not long after making them public. Will he do the same with his recent dig at Kim?
This afternoon, Rob posted the below still from the movie Gone Girl on his verified Instagram account with the caption, “This is my sister Kim, the bitch from Gone Girl…” Ouch. It’s currently the only picture on the account – he deleted everything else. This isn’t going to go over well with matriarch Kris.
Of course, Khloe remains optimistic about her brother’s situation. Contact Music is dishing on a recent interview in which Khloe blames anxiety on Rob’s absence from the spotlight. She says, ”I just feel, especially over the last year, Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety,” adding, ”He’s definitely not at his happiest place that he once was and I know he can get to that happy place and he will.”
Khloe continues, ”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 where to begin. It’s a growing process. I will always be his number one supporter.”
In fact, just last week on Rob’s twenty-eighth birthday, Khloe posted the above picture on her Instagram, writing, “Happy birthday @robkardashian!!!!!! Never will I ever meet another man as great as you! I know this is the year where you will find your happiness again! I will be right by your side, holding your hand, every step of the way!!! I adore you my one and only brother!! Happy Happy Happy birthday!!”
Regardless of my general disdain for this family, I do wish Rob the best, and I love the sincere and loving bond that Khloe shares with her younger brother.
