The entire Kardashian/Jenner family must have let out a collective gasp when they saw Rob’s nasty Instagram comparing sister Kim Kardashian to ‘Gone Girl’s murderous platinum n,blonde, Amy Dunne. This is a cry for help, if there ever was one!
Rob Kardashian — you must be furious with your sister Kim Kardashian and the rest of your high profile Kardashian/Jenner family to have posted such a vicious Instagram calling her “the bitch from Gone Girl”.
Rob Kardashian Compares Kim Kardashian To ‘Gone Girl’ — Don’t Get Angry, Get Help
It was a totally public slam on March 22, just hours before the second episode of this season’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Rob, 28, apparently inspired by Kim’s new platinum blonde locks, posted a photo of Gone Girl‘s psychopathic main character, Amy Dunne, covered in blood, after murdering an ex-lover. He captioned crazy Amy as “my sister Kim, the bitch from Gone Girl.”
For a very public family that has made a career out of airing all its laundry, even dirty, in public — usually on one of its own shows — it was still a breathtaking overshare, to his 2.7 million followers.
Rob Kardashian: Residual Resentment Towards Kim Kardashian From Wedding Fiasco?
Clearly, the rift between Kim and Rob that erupted over her May 24, 2014 wedding is not healed. No, it’s as wide as the Grand Canyon. And those of us who are outside the family still don’t really know what the beef between Rob and Kim was about. And why it was so bad, that Rob boarded a plane back to LA from Paris, rather than go to his sister’s highly anticipated nuptials.
Was it really about Rob not being able to fit into his Valentino wedding outfits after gaining weight, or was it something even more upsetting to Rob?
Kim, 34, gave her version of what happened on an episode of KUWTK: “When Rob flew to Paris, he read some nasty comments about himself and he just didn’t feel comfortable. He didn’t want to see all my guests. It makes me so sad for him. It’s heartbreaking. It really is. I don’t want to think about it…today is my wedding and I don’t want to cry. I want it to be a happy day with amazing memories. We’ll talk about Rob when we get home.”
So big question: did Kim and Rob EVER talk out their issues when she got back from her fairytale wedding, or have problems and resentments been simmering ever since?
Rob Kardashian Needs Help — Dr. Gilda Says
Rob has rarely been seen in public in the past year after gaining weight. In fact, he was last photographed on Dec. 8, 2014 and has been noticeably absent on the new season of KUWTK, didn’t appear on the recent season of Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons and was rarely on KUWTK last season.
“He’s trying to get some attention and it’s a cry for mommy too,” believes celebrity relationship expert Dr. Gilda Carle. “He may feel that the girls in his family are on a pedestal. They can all promote their beautiful bodies. He may feel like an outsider and he’s angry about it.”
Dr. Gilda is convinced that Rob is “living with rage” and something has just happened which got him to “pop the cork”. She urges him to get help. “He needs to channel his anger in a positive way” — like working out at the gym or writing down his thoughts, expressing them to a friend or therapist. “When you stuff your anger down inside and don’t express it, you do damage to yourself — physically and mentally,” she explains.
And that certainly seems to be the case. Rob may be so used to living in a family that shares almost all with the public that he doesn’t even realize that publicly calling his sister a psychopathic “bitch” is a terrible thing. It must be so hurtful to Kim and extremely worrisome to the rest of the family.
Now, a source close to Kris tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that she has told Rob to apologize to Kim, but he has refused, which is only getting Kris, 59, more heated.
Well, who can blame her for being upset with Rob? Not only has he refused to apologize, he also hasn’t deleted his angry Instagram post. It’s up for all the world to see.
Kardashian/Jenners Show Rob Kardashian Birthday Love On Social Media
No doubt, Kris and his sisters have already urged Rob to get help for all his emotional and weight issues.
Their Instagram posts on his birthday, March 17, were overflowing with love. “Happy Birthday handsome I love you madly @robkardashian !!! #proudmama,” gushed Kris Jenner.
“Happy Birthday to my one and only brother Robbie!!!! I love you so much…Kiki ❤️ Riki!!!!,” enthused Kim.
Only Khloe, 30, the sister he is closest to, seemingly referred to the problems he’s been experiencing: “I know this is the year where you will find your happiness again! I will be right by your side, holding your hand, every step of the way!!!,” she Instagrammed.
Khloe Kardashian Speaks Out On Rob’s Disappearance
She’s also the only Kardashian/Jenner who has spoken out about Rob’s public disappearance. “Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety,” she told Wonderwall before hosting a party in Las Vegas at 1 OAK on March 21. “He’s definitely not at his happiest place that he once was…”
No, he certainly isn’t. That’s why Kris and all the rest of Rob’s family, you have to try not to answering his anger with anger.
Rob must be in a very bad place to lash out so nastily, that it’s a serious cry for more help. Help him get that help!
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Should the Kardashians urge Rob to try and get the help he needs instead of getting furious at his shocking Instagram? Let me know.
