Shortly before his sister’s wedding, it was reported Rob had become depressed and was effectively self-medicating with “booze, food and Xanax.” Rob left the wedding before the ceremony and flew home on his own.
Some sources claimed he criticised Kim and the wedding while others claimed Kim was hateful and critical of her brother as his weight problems sullied the family name. Since then, it’s also been claimed that Kris Jenner was extremely critical.
Since then, he’s deleted his tweets and all but two follows. And Khloe reached out saying she misses her “best friend.”
To cope, another source says Rob is still self medicating, but with percocet, norco, “lean” and more.
Rob Kardashian’s problems are far worse than having to drop a few pounds.
In the new issue of In Touch, a close pal of the reality star makes the shocking claim that the 27-year-old has been self-medicating for many months with powerful prescription painkillers. The friend alleges to the mag that Rob is using Norco and Percocet, as well as the anti-anxiety drug Xanax.
According to the friend, in the weeks leading up to sister Kim’s May 24 wedding, Rob was holed up inside his Sherman Oaks, California, condo “doing heavy drugs.” The source exclusively tells In Touch: “He’d just lie around his place smoking weed, doing drugs, watching movies and eating. He said he ‘needed’ the pills.”
Rob has also been indulging in “Lean,” the friend alleges to In Touch. Also known as “Sizzurp,” the highly addictive cocktail of prescription-strength cough syrup, Sprite and a Jolly Rancher candy can cause seizures and even death.
Reports flooded the media when Rob Kardashian fled Europe before his sister Kim’s wedding, alleging that the star was too embarrassed by his weight to appear in photos. But a Kardashian insider tells a different story, claiming that the real reason behind his surprising departure may have been related to his drug use.
“The reason he left Kim’s wedding wasn’t just that he was embarrassed to pose in photos,” the insider exclusively reveals to the magazine. “He only knows how to party to excess. He is so depressed and needs help.” [via In Touch Weekly]
Also, Rob misses his estranged brother-in-law. “Rob really misses Lamar; he was like a big brother to him,” a source told MailOnline. ”Lamar really helped Rob with his problems when it came to wanting to lose weight, and they’ve never lost touch.”
