The Kardashian clan is now blaming Rob Kardashian for the family feud that forced him to skip Kim’s wedding. After being criticized for humiliating Rob about his weight and driving him away, the Kardashians have gone into damage control mode and started telling lies on Rob.
The Kardashian’s shallow, insensitive remarks to Rob about how his appearance would ruin Kim’s wedding pictures have made the whole Kardashian family look bad. So as of May 26, they are flooding People magazine and other news outlets and celebrity gossip sites with stories about how it’s all Rob’s fault.
In their efforts to put a positive spin on the situation and make themselves look good, the Kardashians are unfairly blaming Rob for the family feud that caused him to miss Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kanye West. Initial news reports on May 25 about Rob’s abrupt return to Los Angeles in media outlets like Hello Magazine reflect so poorly on the Kardashian family as a whole, that they’ve gone into overdrive in their attempts to twist the truth.
Twisting the truth about Rob to make themselves look good
According to earlier news reports, Rob left Paris early and flew back home after Kim Kardashian humiliated him about his weight, saying that he would ruin her wedding pictures because of his size. The rest of the Kardashian family sided with Kim. Khloe Kardashian was the only one who begged Rob to ignore Kim’s remarks and stay.
However, as of May 26, pro-Kardashian clan TMZ.com is reporting that Rob was so insecure and depressed about his appearance that he chose to skip Kim’s wedding to avoid being photographed. They say he refused to be in the family wedding pictures, despite his family's encouragement.
People magazine, also known to be very pro-Kardashian, went so far as to say that there was no fight between Rob and Kim – that leaving without attending his sister’s wedding was a decision Rob made on his own.
The New York Daily News quotes “insiders” as saying that the only person who had a problem with Rob's weight was Rob himself.
Other anonymous sources have now emerged with claims of how the Kardashians tried to encourage Rob to stay and were 'heartbroken' when he left. The reality is that it was their insensitive remarks about Rob’s weight that drove him away. Furthermore, they were happy to see him go.
Why the Kardashian clan’s lies about Rob don’t ring true
Blaming the feud with Kim on Rob and trying to pin Rob’s absence from Kim’s wedding on his insecurities and embarrassment about his weight doesn’t ring true for several reasons.
First of all, Rob was fully aware that hundreds of pictures would be taken at the wedding and associated events. He also knew that everything would be taped for reality TV. Yet Rob still chose to attend the wedding in good faith. If he had any misgivings about being photographed, he wouldn’t have bothered to attend.
Secondly, Rob even had his personal trainer Gunnar Peterson accompany him to Paris. They were observed working out together in the hotel gym.
Third, people are overlooking the fact that Rob appeared to be enjoying his first few days in Paris. He was relaxed, in a good mood, and seemed to be enjoying the company of Bruce Jenner, his niece and nephew, Bruce Jenner’s son, Brandon and other friends. It was only after Kim started ridiculing Rob and making disparaging remarks about his weight, that things started to go downhill.
It was Kim Kardashian’s insensitive remarks to her brother about his weight and his family’s rejection, not stress or insecurities that caused Rob to react the way he did. People familiar with the Kardashian clan and how they operate are not fooled by the lies they’re trying to tell on Rob.
