Over the past few weeks, Rob Kardashian has been receiving lots of public praise from his sisters on social media.

Khloe Kardashian gushed about Rob, stating that she’s "obsessed" with him in an Instagram post.

Kourtney Kardashian posted a photo of herself and Rob with a caption that read simply, "Bobby," followed by a heart Emoji.

It was a touching outpouring of support for a young man whose struggles with depression, addiction and compulsive eating have been well-publicized. 

Unfortunately, it seems all that support was the result of Rob suffering a string of setbacks after several months of progress.

Apparently, it seemed that Rob was on the verge of the comeback that he’s been promising for years, but after hitting some stumbling blocks in his weight loss regimen, he seems to have once again given up.

"Rob is still struggling and it makes the family sad," the source tells People magazine. "He deals with depression, weight issues and low self-esteem, but that’s been going on for a long time." 

"The family, especially Khloé, is very much there for him but it has to be his own journey to figure out."

Fortunately, the 28-year-old former reality star seems to have the full support of his famous family.

The Kardashians may take a lot of flak in the media, but they certainly know how to stick up for one of their own.
