Rob Kardashian was photographed taking drugs and drinking sizzurp at a party a few weeks ago, and the pictures have made their way online [courtesy of TMZ]. To absolutely no one’s surprise, TMZ’s source stated that Rob is addicted to sizzurp and weed. Apparently, his family is desperate for him to attend rehab, but I’m not sure if Rob’s listening to his family at all.
TMZ states that the Kardashians have been aware of Rob’s ongoing dependence on sizzurp and weed for a while, and are hoping that these leaked pictures encourage him to seek treatment. They have reportedly called multiple centers in a bid to get Rob to attend rehab, but he’s not interested. He’s refusing to go to rehab and he’s probably refusing to admit that he even has a problem, much in the same way as most drug addicts do when they’re first confronted by the idea of rehabilitation.The Kardashians are also not the best at holding interventions, since we know their past history of interventions failed drastically [cough, Lamar Odom, cough]. In this case, they’ll probably try harder since Rob is part of the immediate family, but they probably won’t succeed. Treating Rob’s drug addictions will mean treating his emotional problems, and if the rumors are true and Rob is dealing with depression, then there’s a lot more going on beneath the surface than just a simple drug addiction. And then there’s also the lack of self-confidence and the massive weight gain. Although all these factors are clearly linked, the Kardashians’ attempt to send him to rehab for his drugs shouldn’t necessarily be the first step. Maybe they should try a psychiatrist or therapist first, and then proceed to rehab discussion?
