This weekend, Rob Kardashian called sister Kim Kardashian a gendered slur, compared her to a manipulative sociopath and a murderer from a movie, and deleted his family from Instagram.
Sock-designer Rob compared Kim to “that b**ch from Gone Girl”. 24-hours later, the post is still live on Instagram.
Today, insiders talk about what’s really going on with him: is he joking or is there something more serious going on?
“He has a funny sense of humor and posts weird things and then deletes them,” a family insider told PEOPLE, dismissing claims that Rob’s message was a cry for help. “It’s just him.” Indeed, the family reportedly found the headlines this generated “so dumb.”
However, more forthcoming family members admit: “He’s been depressed [and struggling with his weight] and just a bit off in general… But he has always been this way.” The source added, “He just can’t lose the weight and he doesn’t try – he just sits around.”
Other sources told HollywoodLife, Kris Jenner was disturbed by the outburst.
“Instead of seeing Rob’s Instagram as a cry for help Kris is pissed that Rob is taking to social media to bash the family,” revealed the source. “She has told Rob to apologize to Kim but he has refused which is only getting Kris more heated.”
