Kim said during an interview with the powerhouse mag that the reason Rob hasn't been seen on Keeping Up with the Kardashians lately isn't because of a drug problem.
"It's not that mysterious, what's happening with Rob," she said. "He has gained weight. He feels uncomfortable being on the show, and that's OK."
Us Weekly points out that Rob was last photographed last month at In-N-Out, though he's been keeping a low profile since the weight gain started back in 2013.
Still, Kardashian goes even further, "Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes."
But when asked if she thought Rob had bigger drug issues, she called BS. "It's not more like hookers and meth at the Ritz. No no. Or he'd be skinny."
Clearly, if Rob is already so sensitive about his weight that he's avoiding being seen on the family's reality show, hearing Kim's interview would have made him upset.
Us Weekly's source explained, "Rob has blocked Kim on his phone. He doesn't want to hear what she has to say. He says there's no excuse she could possibly have for saying that. He will not forgive her."
Of course, maybe Kim was just trying to get the harsh truth out there in order to encourage her brother to get back into shape. And while there may be much better ways of addressing a situation like that, the Kardashians do love the spotlight.
"It's not Kim's personality to nurture," another source told the outlet. "She loves him, but she's direct."
It seems not even those pregnancy hormones have made her sympathetic to her brother's struggles.
