Khloe Kardashian is reportedly warning troubled brother Rob Kardashian to steer clear of her ex Lamar Odom, to whom Rob has been famously close.
If you watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians online, you know that Rob even lived with Khloe and Lamar for a time when they were married.
Rob has reportedly reached out to Lamar in the aftermath of the Kimye wedding debacle, asking the baller help with myriad personal problems.
To Khloe's chagrin, apparently.
Despite Rob Kardshian's weight gain, the ensuing issues stemming from it and his need for companionship, she would prefer he seek it elsewhere.
Rob, who is extremely depressed about his appearance, has been in contact with his sister, who has urged him to seek Bruce Jenner's help instead.
"She wasn’t threatening Rob or anything like that, but she made it clear that she doesn’t approve of him being in constant contact with Lamar," a source said.
Lamar, she believes, "can be toxic and clingy” and is not the type of person to take advice or counsel from, especially given his own struggles.
Instead, a deeper relationship with their stepdad, Bruce, could be just what he needs in a positive male role model as he goes through hard times.
Khloe and Rob have always been close, but there's a void she can't fill.
“She told Rob she understands that he needs support and male companionship to deal with his weight issues and depression," says the insider.
Of his three sisters, Khloe is taking Rob's situation the hardest. She reportedly feels "devastated" when people make fun of her younger brother.
On her jet ride to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding, Khloe cried just thinking about her brother’s depression.
“She’s so protective of her family and took a moment to cry on her flight to Paris just thinking about how awful Rob must feel,” a source said.
“She cried for him because she knows somewhere he’s lost touch."
