Rob Kardashian: Family Fears Relapse, Suicide Attempt in Wake of Blac Chyna Scandal
In case you somehow haven’t heard, Rob Kardashian went off the rails in frightening fashion on social media yesterday.
Rob attacked Blac Chyna on Instagram, accusing her of cheating on him and being addicted to various hard drugs.
When Rob began posting nude photos of Chyna, seemingly as an act of revenge inspired by her alleged infidelity, Instagram shut down his account, but he continued his tirade on Twitter.
Finally, Rob simmered down and stopped posting, but only after committing what many have described as a sex crime against his ex and making himself vulnerable to losing custody of his and Blac’s 7-month-old daughter, Dream.
Now, his family and friends reportedly fear that the worst is yet to come.
Before he met Chyna, Rob was reclusive and prone to compulsive overeating and self-medication through alcohol and drug use.
Sources close to the family tell Radar Online that his family is concerned he’ll return to his old ways in the wake of his public meltdown.
“It seems like no one can do anything to help Rob and they have all tried,” says one insider.
“He is not working out and he is not eating healthy. He is really down on himself right now and no one can do anything because he shuts his family out whenever they try.”
The source adds that Rob has fallen back into troubling behavioral patterns that are making it difficult for him to serve as any kind of father figure to his daughter:
“He stays up late and then sleeps all day and seems to feel like he will never be happy again. He is blaming Chyna for everything,” the insider claims.
Fans have pointed out a reference to Rob’s alleged suicidal tendencies in a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
In the scene, Kris Jenner’s boyfriend Corey Gamble is seen consoling Rob after a particularly bad fight with Chyna.
“People that don’t know you are going to get the idea that you were suicidal,” Gamble remarks at one point.
Some are now pointing to the exchange as an indication that Rob’s troubles go even deeper than the public realizes.
Here’s hoping the troubled 30-year-old is able to get the help he needs before he does further damage to his own life and the lives of those around him.
