After years spent away from his family’s hit reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Rob Kardashian is ready to get back in the game. In the past, the Arthur George designer battled with weight fluctuations, which caused him to sink into a depression and eventually quit the show.
But now that he is working on himself and is “in a good mental state,” Kardashian plans to rejoin his family on their long-running reality series, and we can’t be more excited.
Rob Kardashian spent a few years avoiding the spotlight
When Kardashian rose to fame on KUWTK in 2007, he sported a slimmer and more muscular figure that he didn’t mind showing off in front of the camera.
However, following his split from Rita Ora (who denies they ever dated) in 2012, the reality star’s appearance underwent a significant change.
While dealing with the aftermath of the breakup, Kardashian found comfort in food and began gaining a substantial amount of weight around the year 2015.
As his binge eating continued, Kardashian found himself plummeting into a depression and struggling with self-esteem issues.
This, in turn, caused forced him to maintain a low profile and skip out on family events, vacations, weddings, etc. He also began appearing less and less on KUWTK and eventually quit the show altogether.
Though Kardashian resurfaced in the public eye when he and ex-girlfriend Blac Chyna snagged their own reality show, Rob & Chyna, in 2016, he retreated into seclusion after their relationship and the show came to an end later that same year.
