Rob Kardashian deletes Twitter feed, starts from scratch following weight gain

What is going on with Rob Kardashian? The “Keeping with the Kardashians” star has his friends and family worried over his recent weight gain and bizarre behavior, according to a report posted on Tuesday by People.

The 27-year-old reality star turned sock designer spent the Memorial Day weekend deleting all of his old Tweets and Instagram pictures, just days after he skipped out on his sister Kim’s wedding in Italy. While the Kardashian brother did fly out to Europe for the wedding, a source close to the situation told the celebrity gossip magazine that he wasn’t acting like himself. He ultimately opted to fly out of Paris before the ceremony in Florence, Italy, but there was apparently no kind of family feud involved.

After his massive Twitter and Instagram purge, Kardashian started a fresh feed by tweeting out some Bible verses and Memorial Day messages to his nearly 5 million followers. Of course, his porn star infused Following list is far from religious, but that's another story.

Kardashian's unusual social media behavior may never be explained, but his absence from his big sis’s wedding to rapper Kanye West may have something to do with his own insecurities about his appearance. A source told E! News that while Rob wanted to be there, he was “feeling so insecure and didn't want anyone to see him heavier like this.”

Indeed, the reality star has put on quite a bit of weight since his svelte “Dancing With the Stars” days (less than three years ago, he was the runner up in the celeb ballroom competition), so perhaps his Twitter and Instragram deletions are his way of starting fresh.

TMZ previously posted some of Kardashian’s social media commentary about his weight gain, in which he wrote, "I'm a grown man and will work on myself when I choose. I’m aware that I'm fat that def aint a surprise to me lol and my only therapy will be in the gym ..."

Last week the reality star was trending on Twitter for being fat, after he was photographed at LAX and in Paris en route to his sister's wedding.
