Rob Kardashian Is Not In Rehab, Contrary To Multiple Reports
Rob Kardashian, the lone son in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, is reportedly not in rehab despite reports that claim he was seeking treatment.
Rob Kardashian Not In Rehab
Kardashian, 27, was reportedly seeking treatment for depression and substance abuse issues at the Meadows Trauma and Addiction rehabilitation center in Wickenburg, Ariz. Now, however, sources have come forward to shut down those claims.
"Rob is not in rehab,” a representative for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and fashion entrepreneur told E! News. Another insider claimed that Kardashian was in L.A. training with fitness guru Gunnar Peterson on Wednesday, and not – as had been reported – in Arizona.
"He was in really good spirits, seemed very much himself," the insider revealed. "Said he'd been working out every day and was focused on getting back in shape."
Rob's Rehab, Addiction Rumors
Previous reports claimed that Kardashian was struggling with depression and an addiction to the cough syrup concoction “sizzurp,” as well as his ongoing issues with his weight.
“Rob has been checked into The Meadows for about a month for substance-abuse issues,” a person claiming to be an insider had told Star magazine. “He’s been feeling stronger and more relaxed without the incessant berating from everyone. I would love to see him show up a changed man at Kim’s wedding and gain some independence.”
“Rob was drinking a lot of Sizzurp, and that’s one of the reasons he gained so much weight,” the insider had continued. “Rob is well past the point of desperation and now is just flatout miserable. He wants to be the star of the Kardashians for once in his life, but right now he feels like he’s bringing the entire family down.”
