Recluse and former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Rob Kardashian surprised his three million-plus Instagram followers on Thursday when he posted a rare photo on the social media site. The image captured a shirtless Rob chowing down on a sandwich. “Me just chill-zoning in Malibu eating a pulled pork sandwich,” he captioned the picture.
It should be pointed out that the above is a throwback photo, so it’s unclear when exactly Rob had it taken. Presumably, the picture is poking fun at all of the headlines and media attention surrounding Rob’s recent weight gain.
It’s also likely that the pork pic will not remain very long–Rob has quite the history of deleting images not long after posting them. You might recall his tweet & delete of a photo of Rosamund Pike covered in blood from Gone Girl and his caption, “This is my sister kim, the b!tch from Gone Girl.”
Khloe Kardashian recently opened up about her brother Rob in her Complex cover story. Here are some excerpts:
Was it hard living with Rob at his place?
I honestly had no idea how long I was going to be there. It was fun at first, and then I think it was overwhelming for both of us. We were going from this huge house to his townhouse, so I can’t just like put all my shit everywhere, but he was so great about it. Obviously he would get annoyed from time to time or when he wanted girls over. I totally get it. Rob lives with me now and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love having him with me. I have a big ass house and I wanted it so he could feel like, comfortable. He’s going through a hard time now and it’s behind gates. With this crazy lifestyle you have to think of places where you can still have your freedom. Kourtney and Scott live in the same gated area. My nieces and nephew come over at least three times a week. I have everything, my brother’s there and I love him. I get crazy if he’s like, “I’m moving out.”
Has he threatened that?
Yes. Listen, he’s a man, and 28 and I’m sure it doesn’t sound good to say, “Oh I live with my sister,” but it’s not because he has to. I’m like, “Put this into perspective, your friends live at home with their parents because they can’t do anything else. Your sister’s literally holding you captive and actively making you. So if that makes you feel better, say that all you want.” I don’t want to put words in his mouth, but I’m sure that’s why he would threaten to move out.
Maybe he feels suffocated.
I think so, but I’m good with him. I never bother him. I just bought him a rug for his bedroom and he was so cute. He’ll text me and tell me how much he likes it and he notices things. So, I like it. I call him my son as a joke. I’ll call my assistant and be like, “Did you guys ask if he wanted lunch?” or this or that and my sisters hate that I do that. I do baby him but I’m a maternal person.
We’re going to be optimistic and take Robb’s sense of humor as a very positive sign. 🙂
