Last week, we reported that Rob Kardashian was hospitalized and diagnosed with diabetes after complaining of a number worrisome ailments.
Family, friends and fans hoped that the situation would serve as a wake-up call for Rob, but sadly, that hasn't been the case.
Sources say Rob is ignoring his diagnosis and continuing to indulge in the risky behavior that nearly left him in a coma just a few weeks ago.
Fortunately, Kris Jenner seems to think she has the solution - and the momager may be willing to shell out big bucks in order to kill two birds with one stone.
According to Radar Online, Kris is planning to pay Rob $1 million in order to check into rehab.
Of course, this is Kris Jenner we're talking about, so there's a PR angle in play here.
Sources say the deal would also require Rob to return to Keeping Up With the Kardashians so that his struggle with depression and addiction issues could be used as a storyline for the shows twelfth season.
“Kris looks at Rob’s health crisis as a potential storyline for the show,” one insider says. “She wants him to let cameras inside of his struggle because she believes that his downward spiral would make for great ratings!
“But there is a catch. She told him that in order to get the money, he must check in to treatment when the show is on hiatus.”
Whatever works, we suppose. Of course, we'd have more faith in Kris' parenting abilities if getting Rob into rehab were her primary concern, and appearing on the show was "the catch."
Insiders say Kris is still attempting to handle the situation from afar, and has not seen Rob since his hospitalization.
“Kris still has not seen her son in person,” says the source. “However, she has ordered a private chef for him, as well as a team consisting of a psychologist, nutritionist and therapist.
“She has basically done everything except for actually going to deal with his situation in person.”
Yes, it sounds like Kris is still a manager first and a mom second. The approach seems to work very well for some of her daughters...not so much for her son.
