Fans of Rob Kardashian have watched the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star pack on the pounds. However, according to TMZ, Rob’s problems may be more than just his weight gain. He allegedly has a drug problem as well.
TMZ posted pictures of Rob enjoying himself at a party. The pictures show him passing what appears to be a joint to another person. In front of him is a ‘double cup’ containing his favorite drink, Sizzurp. This drink contains a mixture of super sugary pop and prescription-strength codeine cough syrup.
The pictures show that Rob’s cup has the words, “Codeine Boys” on one side and “Siplean” on the other side.
A source told TMZ "[Rob's] family wants Rob to get help for what they say is a very bad drug problem." However, a source told In Touch that Rob has been self-medicating for months. He allegedlly uses Norco and Percocet which are powerful prescription painkillers.
The Kardashian family is trying to do an intervention by calling rehab clinics, but Rob refuses to go. They are hoping that now his drug problem is exposed, Rob will admit that he has a problem and want help.
This isn't the first intervention that the Kardashian family has tried to instigate and failed. Lamar Odom had a drug adiction and refused treatment. This helped drive his marriage into the rocks as Kourtney filed for divorce.
In May, Rob flew to Paris to attend Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s pre-wedding party and wedding, but according to rumors, Kim allegedly told him that he was fat and a disgrace to the family. However, the point was driven home when Kim and her family were invited to have lunch at Valentino’s home. Kim required everyone wear a Valentino couture to attend. Because Rob had gained a lot of weight, he couldn't fit into any Valentino couture label clothes. He was unable to attend, so he boarded the plane and came back home to the states.
Other rumors have circulated for a while that Rob is addicted to food, alcohol, and Zanax. He said that he does not believe in therapy. When he feels the time is right, he will work on himself to drop the weight.
In May, a close friend told Radar Online that Rob’s depressed and sad so he eats a lot, drinks heavily and take Xanax. “He’s not exactly the famous one in his family and he sort of feels like he’s nobody except the Kardashian name.”
While the other members of the Kardashian family have fulfilling and successful jobs. Rob’s business as a sock maker/designer didn’t go anywhere. Most of his problems, particularly his weight gain began when he and Rita Orta broke up.
