Rob Kardashian can’t seem to catch a break, unfortunately. First of all, he has the unlucky misfortune of being a part of the Kardashian family, which is already a big setback if you’re not a massive famewhore obsessed with attention and money. Then, the poor guy went and gained a ton of weight earlier this year, and he was all but banned from attending his own sister’s wedding in Europe.
Now, a new report from In Touch Weekly suggests that Rob might be addicted to powerful narcotics. Apparently, Rob has been dealing with the pressure to lose weight by turning to drugs, including powerful prescription painkillers like Xanax, Norco, and Percocet. He’s also been drinking a lot of ‘sizzurp’ [the prescription level cough medicine], the drink of choice for Justin Bieber‘s crowd.A source tells In Touch, “He’d just lie around his place smoking weed, doing drugs, watching movies and eating. He said he ‘needed’ the pills.” The source also adds that Rob didn’t attend the wedding not because he was embarrassed to be seen in photos, but because he is ‘seriously depressed’ and needs help.
Well, it’s not hard to believe that Rob is battling with depression, which explains the over-reliance on prescription medicine as well as the massive weight gain. Unfortunately for Rob, he’s been going about this the wrong way, and the first thing he needs to do is start seeing a psychiatrist and/or check himself into rehab. Otherwise, the cycle of addiction and weight gain will just continue to feed into each other until it’s too late to get out of it.
