Rob Kardashian has been in a dark place lately.

The sole male Kardashian and former sock designer made headlines for the first time in years when he skipped Kim Kardashian’s wedding seemingly to avoid negative press regarding his overweight and generally unhealthy appearance.

It didn’t work. Photos of a bloated and bleary-eyed Rob spread like wildfire on the web, as did news that Kardashian is suffering from an addiction to sizzurp that may well prove deadly.

No one knows for sure what may have triggered Rob’s decline, but his sister Khloe scertainly has her theories:

Discussing the matter with Brody Jenner in a a clip from the next episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe blames her troubled relationship with Lamar Odom for sending Rob down a bad path.


"Rob has said, ‘[Living with Khloe and Lamar] was so dark and it made me do dark things.’"

In a voice over for the episode, Khloe says, "Only Rob and Lamar and I know what went on in that house. I’m a nurutrer and I want to protect everyone. I wasn’t there to protect Rob. I wasn’t even there to protect myself. No one can make me not feel guilty."

Khloe never mentions drugs specifically but considering Lamar struggled with crack addiction amongst other demons, it seems pretty clear that she’s blaming her brother’s addiction troubles on her ex.
