Evelyn Lozada gushes over Rob Kardashian’s weight loss on Instagram

Though his billionaire sisters love the cameras, Rob has always preferred to take a backseat from the reality television fame. He appeared as a cast member on the first few seasons of KUWTK and was a staple on Khloé & Lamar, but his insecurities with weight sent him into a depression. Rob has struggled with his weight, fluctuating often, and he’s opted to hide from the spotlight when he feels he’s not at his best size.

“Rob and I have never gone on a date. We’ve known each other for a long time,” she shared on E!’s Just The Sip. “I wished him a Happy Father’s Day and as a joke–because I have no filter and a New York mouth—I said, ‘Happy Father’s Day big d–k Rob.'”

Lozada explained that the message was initially private but Rob dared her to share it publicly. Never one to back down from a challenge, Lozada accepted the dare. Though she insisted their relationship was platonic, she admitted that she was open to more with Rob.

“You never know. I think Rob is a nice guy. I think he’s a great father and I admire that about him,” she said. “I think he’s been dealt some tough cards but I feel like he has a great heart.”
