Rob Kardashian and his obvious struggle with depression and body image continue to spiral out of control, despite interventions staged by his family.
They've apparently held multiple, to no avail, and are currently at a loss.
Over the weekend, Rob Kardashian returned to social media after an absence of several months, and he certainly came back with a bitter vengeance.
Rob posted a photo of the blood-drenched actress Rosamund Pike with a shocking caption comparing Kim Kardashian to "the b-tch from Gone Girl".
Fans of the best-selling novel know that Pike's character, Amy Elliott Dunne, was a sociopath and murderer wrapped in a seemingly perfect exterior.
Some fans speculated that Rob was joking. It does not appear that way.
Why would Rob lash out in such a public fashion at his own sister, the woman who made his family famous? Clearly something is not right with him.
Reports that Rob blames Kim for all his problems may hint at the severity of his depression and insecurity, and why it's so hard for him to turn it around.
According to sources close to the family, she's dead to him and there's no motivation for him not to insult his sister, even harshly and publicly, in his mind.
The Kardashians and Jenners are obvious worried and want to do whatever it takes to get him help, but they've tried this before with the 28-year-old.
“He’s sad, he’s bitter, he’s single. He is very depressed and has been [for a while],” an insider tells People. “He is very against therapy and any kind of rehab."
“But his family will continue to push for him to get help until he does.”
The controversial Instagram post was just the tip of the iceberg for a young man who's become more anti-social, isolated and sad with each passing day.
Everyone in his family knows he’s “not well", but how can they fix it?
That's the million dollar question. The problems Rob is experiencing run deeper than standard sibling rivalry or inter-family squabbles most of us know.
We just hope someone can get through to him, and soon.
