As we reported earlier, Kim Kardashian covers the new issue of Rolling Stone, and though she keeps her clothes (mostly) on for the pictorial, the reality star bares all in what may be the most candid interview of her career.
One excerpt that's getting a lot of attention is Kim's revelation about her reclusive younger brother.
Rob Kardashian has been in hiding for months now, and rumors abound about the cause of his sudden shyness abound:
Sources have claimed that Rob is a drug addict, that his weight has ballooned to over 350 pounds, and that he's on the outs with his fame-hungry family.
Now, for the first time, Kim is speaking out about exactly what's going on with her brother, and it turns out there's a combination of factors that have led to his current hermit-like existence.
“It’s not that mysterious, what’s happening with Rob," Kim says.
"He has gained weight. He feels uncomfortable being on the show, and that’s OK. Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes.”
So there you have it. Rob's not on meth; he's not so obese he can't leave the house; and he doesn't hate his sisters.
He's just suffering from what sounds like a unique form of depression with unusually bro-like symptoms.
Hey, we just realized that "Rob" is an anagram for "bro." Coincidence? Yes. But still...
