Khloe Kardashian Says Brother Rob Is Finally Returning To 'KUWTK', Bible
Rob Kardashian is headed back to Keeping Up With The Kardashians, says sis Khloe Kardashian. The 33-year-old stopped filming a few years ago while he battled depression and has not been in the public eye much since.
Khloe shared the news with People, saying Rob was “going to be on the show more”. She added that despite fans never seeing him, he was always still very much part of the KarJenner clan.
"Rob is truly my best friend,” Khloe said. “I love, love, love him. He's always around. People think we don't see him, but just because the public doesn't see him, doesn't mean we don't see him."
She continued, saying the family never pushed him to be in the spotlight – they always let him decide. “We always take photos – we have so many memories, but nothing public, so I was really happy because on my birthday, he said, 'Oh, you can post that. I'm fine, I feel good.' It made us feel so good that he was comfortable. And the reaction from the public was so positive that it gave him a boost of confidence."
Khloe said it was that confidence boost that led to Rob now deciding to appear more on the show. She explained, "We're filming more within our homes, and he is right there with us. I'm excited for everyone to see that. He's such a good person and I'm just happy he's coming back around on camera a little bit more."
News of Rob rejoining the show comes after Kourtney Kardashian revealed that she’d decided to take a step back from filming. Earlier this month, the mum-of-three explained to Vogue Arabia that the show’s set had become a toxic environment for her.
Rob made a rare appearance on a recent episode of the show to celebrate the birthday of daughter Dream who he co-parents with ex Blac Chyna.
In July 2017, Rob reportedly posted revenge porn of his ex Blac Chyna online, uploading a series of naked photos on Instagram seemingly without her constent. Soon after, Chyna took out a restraining order against him, claiming he’d assaulted her. She dropped the case in September that year. Rob later also accused Chyna of assault, saying she’d tried to choke him with a phone cord. Chyna said there was no truth to the allegations. It was all very messy at the time and it seemed to be an incredibly unhealthy and harmful situation for all involved.
The former couple were also reportedly locked in a custody battle over their daughter, Dream. But in 2019, Rob took to Twitter to say that was no longer the case. "Angela and I are both actively co-parenting and there are no pending or active custody cases," he wrote. We're sure his return to KUWTK is an attempt to rehabilitate his image, and knowing the Kardashians, it'll work a treat.
