After weeks of being out of the spotlight, Rob Kardashian has resurfaced as he was spotted at the LAX airport on his way to sister Kim Kardashian’s wedding.
Rob Kardashian finally resurfaced in public looking considerably larger than usual after being on the down low for several weeks amid rumors that he was having weight issues.
The reality star was spotted at the Los Angeles airport with his mom Kris Jenner as the pair made their way to Europe for his sister Kim’s upcoming wedding, Us Weekly reported. Kardashian, who looked heavier than he has in a while, is rumored to have been doing daily workouts with a trainer to shed some pounds.
However, the former DWTS contestant has not dropped much weight and is believed to have a thyroid problem, a source revealed. Although, the insider also said that Kardashian has a tendency to binge eat as well.
Despite his heavier appearance, Kardashian looked happy and comfortable, wearing an all-black loose ensemble comprised of a roomy shirt and baggy workout pants paired with yellow and white sneakers.
After reportedly enrolling in a weight-loss program, Kardashian took to Twitter to express his struggles, saying, “No one will ever understand how much it hurts.” He later deleted the tweet and hasn’t been heard from much on the social media site since.
TMZ reported that Rob Kardashian has actually not been participating in any weight-loss programs, or “fat camp” as they called it, but has just been doing frequent workouts with famed trainer Gunnar Peterson.
In addition to weight issues, the sock designer is also rumored to have sought help for emotional distress and a substance abuse problem, although his reps denied the reports. Kardashian was believed to have gone through a rough patch after his breakup from Rita Ora last year, when he accused her of cheating on him.
Reports suggest Kardashian has gained around 100 pounds during his time out from the public eye, and has been mostly absent from his family’s reality show this season.
