Rob Kardashian’s Stunned Reaction to Caitlyn Jenner Cover
Rob Kardashian was stunned by Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Cover. Rob has been famously absent from the family festivities and reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Sister Kim told Access Hollywood at the CDFA Fashion Awards about Rob being in the dark about the shoot.
“It was so funny because all the girls, we knew that Caitlyn was shooting this but my brother had no idea.”
What was Rob’s response to the group text Kim sent of the cover with Caitlyn’s big reveal?
“Kim, why are you sending me this? Who is this woman? And why do I care?”
After explaining to Rob who it was, he was supportive and complimentary saying, “Oh my God, she’s beautiful!” He then, according to Kim, called Caitlyn and had a “lovefest.”
Kim called it cute but Rob being so clueless only highlights just how absent he has been from the family circle. While the girls and even Kris have all been open about their struggle and support of Caitlyn’s transition, Rob may as well have been in Siberia.
Rob send out this Tweet after Caitlyn’s sit down with Diane Sawyer:
But outside of that, Rob has been MIA in public. Some rumors have made claims that he is struggling with addiction to cough syrup while others have him depressed over gaining weight. He publicly claimed ex-girlfriend Rita Ora cheated on him with at least 20 guys. He later said he had to write those horrible things publicly to prevent himself from reconciling with her.
Rob’s absence was addressed on the show but only slightly. Kim urged them to use tough love accusing the family of “licking Rob’s ass,” while Kris tearfully worried that her son would die if she didn’t intervene. Rob is living at Khloe’s house and she seemed to be taking it the hardest getting calls from Rob upset over a potential family intervention. Khloe cried into the phone letting him know the toll this was taking on her even comparing it to the drama she endured with Lamar.
The family never said what the actual issue was on the show leaving room for speculation and gossip about what exactly Rob’s real issue is. He had been seen less and less on the show and in public but the problems became most obvious when he flew home before attending Kim and Kanye’s wedding. Rob flew to Paris but skipped the rehearsal dinner at the fabulous Versailles.
Though family sources claim there was no fight and that the issue was not between Rob and Kim, Rob took another recent shot at Kim posting a picture on Instagram of the villainous lead in Gone Girl captioning the shot, “This is my sister, kim, the bitch from Gone Girl.” He later removed the picture with no explanation.
Whatever is going on with Rob is not clear but his reaction to the Caitlyn Jenner cover shows how far removed he is from what is going on in his family. What do you think is going on with Rob? Is he tired of the media glare or do you think there’s more to the story? Let us know here at Haveuheard.
