Washington, 12 June-2014, ALLISON TAKEDA: Khloe Kardashian’s relationship with younger brother Rob has always been a close one, but it seems as though the recent drama in the Arthur George designer’s life may be tearing the two apart.

On June 10, Khloe posted a photo to Instagram in which she mourned the recent lack of closeness between her and her baby bro.
The photo, which shows the two sitting together as children, with Khloe’s arm protectively wrapped around Rob, bore the mournful caption, “I miss my best friend @robkardashian.”
While the 27-year-old Rob has insisted that he’s getting his life under control on his own terms, sources close to the Kardashians reveal that Rob’s depression is still getting the best of him.
One Kardashian insider tells RadarOnline.com that Rob’s weight gain has greatly increased his stress level, and that, despite his frequent trips to the gym, his poor eating habits are making it hard for him to lose the pounds.
However, while the weight may be at the forefront of his mind, it’s Rob’s family that has dealt him the most crushing blow.
“Rob feels that the reality show has truly ruined his family, and that momager Kris Jenner is always on the lookout for the next big deal for one of her daughters,” says a source close to the family. “He just feels very alone.”
Do you think Rob can get things back on track before it’s too late?
He has since re-followed them, but friends and family are worried nonetheless. Kardashian pal Jonathan Cheban, for one, expressed his concerns during a chat with Rob’s ex-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon at the 2014 Fresh Air Fund Gala in New York City in May.
Rob’s mom, Kris Jenner, said he’s going through some stuff but will eventually come out on the other side. “Rob is working on himself,” she told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb during an appearance on the Today show earlier this month. “He’s going to be okay. A lot of prayer and, you know, he’s such a great human being…he’s my heart.”
