Rob Kardashian is more depressed than ever and his family is reportedly running out of patience. They’ve reportedly staged multiple failed interventions and Kim in particular doesn’t understand why Rob won’t snap out of it.
“Rob is in a dark place,” a source told Us Weekly. Adding, “Kim told him he needs to get out of his funk.” Kim has talked on Keeping up with the Kardashians about her initial desire to help her brother and then turning to tough love when all else failed. By all accounts, though, she and Rob haven’t been close in years (not since the Rita Ora debacle).
The insider explains why Rob sent that photo comparing Kim to a sociopath from a movie, Amy Dunne from Gone Girl. “His post was about how she seems caring in public, but he feels ignored,” says the source.
The source explains of the mother-of-one’s tone-deaf communication style: “[It is] not Kim’s personality to nurture. She loves [Rob], but she’s direct.”
However, another source told RadarOnline Kim is NOT the real problem. “Rob is projecting all of his anger right now onto Kim because he feels that she is the cause of his pain,” reveals the insider. “But Kim is not the cause of Rob’s pain. She is simply the catalyst in this situation.”
“Everyone is concerned for Rob right now,” the source added. “Rob’s depression, anger, and everything associated with it, stems from the fact that he is not living healthy right now. He seems to be slipping off of the deep end.”
What is going on with Rob? “He’s sad, he’s bitter, he single. He is very depressed and has been [for a while].”
And why won’t he get help? “He is very against therapy and any kind of rehab. But his family will continue to push for him to get help until he does… The attitude has always been that when Rob gets his act together, starts working out and loses weight, everything will be good and he will be happy. But behind the weight gain is this very unhealthy mental state that he keeps struggling with.”
“It’s really hard for him that his sisters are so public, ” a source tells PEOPLE, “and he looks like a shut-in.”
