Apparently, the Kardashian bro is going through a tough time both financially and emotionally, and his famous family doesn’t really know what to do to help him.
The source reportedly told Radar, “It’s bad. The family is very worried.” They added, “They’ve given up trying to fix him.”
The outlet reported that Rob has been struggling with depression and with his weight for years, and honestly, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he’s struggling again now. Rob is in the midst of an intense legal battle with Blac Chyna — his ex and the mother of his daughter, Dream Kardashian — and is reportedly very deep in debt.
According to The Blast on Nov. 13, Rob claimed he “can no longer afford” the reported $20,000 he owes to Chyna every month. The online outlet reported that he is blaming Chyna for his financial state, partly because when it comes to his family’s hit TV series Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Rob wrote in a declaration, “I have not participated in the filming of any episodes since this summer when [Chyna] filed a request for a restraining order against me. Her request was widely publicized and I was scrutinized by the media.”
That’s led to a loss of income, because according to legal documents The Blast quoted, Rob’s old contract with the show guaranteed him a minimum of a $1 million annual salary for participating, but in 2018, he’s only paid for the episodes he’s in, and makes just $50,000 per episode.
Radar reported that Rob was present at a recent birthday party for his daughter — one that his sisters Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim posted photos and videos from on social media — but that he hid from the cameras. If he’s not feeling great about himself or his situation, that’s not totally shocking. At least he’s spending time with his family, even if they’re not sure how to help him. Hopefully, Rob breaks out of this funk soon.
