After months of living in seclusion and attempting (unsuccessfully) to avoid the glare of the media spotlight, Rob Kardashian is reportedly ready to make an epic comeback.
Sources say Rob has lost weight, and he's finally getting professional help for his emotional and addiction issues.
Rob has returned to Instagram, and though it's tough to tell from his pics, he appears to be in the best shape of his adult life.
Of course, Rob remains a Kardashian, so the most important development for momager Kris Jenner is that he might be ready to return to reality TV...and score a huge payday in the process.
“Rob finally got serious about his fitness and most importantly, dealing with his mental health issues,” a source close to the family tells Radar Online. “Once he made progress with a psychotherapist, Rob decided to begin exercising.”
“Watching what he is eating has made a huge difference, and Rob has quickly dropped 25 pounds. Kris is thrilled because frankly, for her, constantly being asked how he was doing was getting embarrassing!”
Kris is also thrilled because both she and the network are aware that a special "Rob Returns" episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians could translate to major ratings.
“Kris has been so impressed with Rob’s progress, she is offering him $500,000 to return to filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians," the source says. "The money wouldn’t be coming directly from Kris, but from the production company.”
Yes, Kris remains a manager first and a mom second, and apparently, having an overweight son was totally bad for business.
“Kris is all about image and having an overweight son was a tarnish on her picture-perfect family,” the insider claims.
We don't know what's funnier - the fact that Kris thinks she has a "picture-perfect family," or that she thinks Rob is the problem.
