Khloe Kardashian Opens Up About Brother Rob’s Depression

Rob Kardashian has been working hard to keep himself out of the spotlight, whilst dealing with personal issues. 

His struggles were well documented on their family’s hit reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, both on and off camera. Sister Khloe was always quick to jump to his defense, and now, in her new book, she reveals just how she feels about her brother’s health.

According to US Weekly, the chapter which is dedicated to her brother is named Make The Best Of Everything.



In her book, entitled Strong Looks Better Naked, she writes: ‘Take my brother Rob. I love him and he knows I love him, but he fell into a deep, dark place and couldn’t find his way back.’

Khloe explained that her younger brother would try to ‘fix things his way’ by diving ‘headfirst’ into solutions that weren’t sustainable, recalling a time that he dedicated himself to a new fitness regime in a bid to change, only to ditch it three weeks later.


If you’re struggling with depression, you can head to the NHS website for help and advice. 

She writes: ‘It was a waste of time… The truth is, he wanted too much too soon, and his unrealistic explanations totally short-circuited his efforts.’

This is such an important issue, and we admire Khloe for speaking out about it, as part of her new self-help book. 

Khloe Kardashian has become known for her protective and loyal attitude towards her family, which we really admire, and she has always been there to support him, even having Rob to live with her.

The self-help author has previously gushed about him to PEOPLE, saying: ‘Rob is such a great guy… He’s charming, charismatic, everything.’

She admitted that she feels he’s wasting it: ‘That’s what’s so infuriating. I’m like, ‘Where is your will to live life? Let’s be around people!’’

We really wish Rob the best, and hope that he’s happy, whether in the spotlight or outside of it.
