Rob Kardashian Has Gained Even More Weight, Which Is Weird Because He’s Traveling With A ‘Personal Trainer’

In case you’re wondering why I put quotation marks around the phrase ‘personal trainer’, it’s because I’m not convinced that that’s the job of the person who’s traveling with Rob Kardashian right now.

Rob had previously admitted to gaining forty pounds after his breakup with Rita Ora, but reports are suggesting that he’s put on at least sixty more, which is a shitload regardless, but even more when you consider that this is Kris Jenner‘s son we’re talking about. She barely lets her kids sneeze without Instagramming it, so you know she has to be livid over a one hundred pound weight gain.

Which is why it made sense for us to keep hearing reports that Rob has been in daily workouts with his sister Khloe‘s trainer Gunnar Peterson for months now, neck-deep in a Kris Jenner-Style Fat Camp to get him ready for Kim‘s wedding to Kanye West, which is in four days (!!). Doesn’t mean it’s right to ask your kid to drop seventy pounds in three months, but it at least sounded like something that Kris would insist on.

So imagine our surprise when Rob resurfaced from this supposed gym spree on Sunday, looking the largest we’ve ever seen him. There are a ton of excuses popping up to explain his appearance, like ‘a thyroid problem’, ‘binge-eating’, and having to cut down to twice-weekly workouts because of Rob’s ‘busy schedule’ (I know), but I’m suspicious of all of them. If you’ve seriously been working out with a personal trainer five days a week and you’re putting on weight instead of taking it off, it’s time to fire that personal trainer, not bring him to your sister’s wedding.

…which is what Rob is doing, according to TMZ. Rob’s plus-one Gunnar is literally staying with him all weekend to ‘keep him fit during sister Kim’s wedding festivities’. Sorry, what? That’s not a thing, right? We can all admit that that’s not real? That nobody ever goes into their wedding by warning their planner about a family member by saying:

“Keep him away from the…food. Yeah, the food. Because if there’s one thing you get warned against at weddings, it’s one of your guests having too much to eat and then embarrassing themselves and everyone involved with a long-winded speech, y’know? Just make sure we have the crudites under lock-and-key and that if he’s seeming inclined to do a karaoke rendition of the wedding song, take him aside to do some jumping jacks until the feeling subsides.”

If Rob was seriously committed to losing the weight, he certainly has the resources to do so. The Kardashian-Jenners can afford world-class personal trainers, world-class personal chefs, and world-class plastic surgeons, so if he’s putting weight on instead of taking it off in hopes of locating his lost penis, there has to be something else going on. FACT.

    This just makes me really sad for him. And I cringe even more when I think of how much Kris probs hates that he has to be in the wedding photos with the the other perfect kids.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I know. The poor kid.

    • carrie thompson

      Yeah- I’m the chubby one in my family, but luckily nobody makes me feel badly about it for family wedding photos! I can only imagine what he is hearing from Kris about his weight gain ruining Kim’s perfect wedding!

  • JenH1986

    I’m curious if Peterson is a sober companion…or that they are paying him to be one since he’s a well known trainer it won’t be as obvious.

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      That’s what we were chatting about in the office! It seemed too speculative to include in the post, but a bunch of us were wondering the same thing.

    • JenH1986

      Sorry but a week around food isn’t gonna set this guy back, not enough to pay the kind of money they are likely paying that guy to attend. A week of drugs/drinking? yea. Something is off. And since I am not employed by Crushable I can speculate away! :)

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      We’re glad to have you!
      But seriously…just how much of the cake are they expecting him to eat, that he has to have a 24/7 guard.

    • carrie thompson

      A hundred pound weight gain in, what…a year? And with all of the resources at their disposal, he is gaining rather than losing? There’s an underlying issue. Medical issue seems to be ruled out, since Pimp Momma Kris (I also like to refer to her as Satan’s Homegirl) would have announced that far and wide. So as for what else it could be- addiction, depression, combination of mental health crisis and addiction problem…all of which PMK would want to hush up. I think there’s something pretty serious going on with Rob, which is probably exacerbated by the fact that his family is more concerned with the public image optics of his problem than they are with helping him to get better.
      There’s absolutely no reason for him to travel with Peterson- his workout session rate is outrageous, paying for him to travel must be exorbitant (unless he’s an invited guest- did he ever train Kim or Kanye?). There are trainers in Paris, he could workout with his sisters if he just had to have someone else there to motivate him to get to the gym. Something’s fishy.

    • noodlestein

      You and everybody else at Celebitchy like to refer to her as that, you mean.

    • carrie thompson

      Well, sure- I don’t think I insinuated that I invented the nickname. Just so we’re really clear, I think Michael K. at Dlisted coined Pimp Momma Kris.

  • http://operationtubetop.blogspot.co.at/ Tova

    There was a blind a while back that I think was about him. That he has a secret child with someone and is suicidal and that Pimp Momma Kris has pretty much put him under lock and key in rehab in Florida. I really feel for him. The whole Klan doesn’t really deserve sympathy but yet, this just seems really sad.

  • Katie

    It’s really terrible that his own mother would “fat-shame” him, no matter what the reasons for his weight gain, support and not shaming is the answer. But I will say this, it really ticks me off that they’d use a Thyroid problem as an excuse, those of us who have Thyroid issues like myself, it’s not cool to throw around a diagnosis or feign an issue like that just because you gained weight. And by the by, totally unrelated, wouldn’t Khloe be blowing up Instagram showing Rob as her workout buddy if he were in fact at that gym working out?

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Yeah absolutely — she posts photos from the gym CONSTANTLY. That’s a really good point. And I agree that it’s really unfair and insensitive for thyroid issues to be thrown around as an excuse.

  • Ugh!

    With all the money, access to all the healthy food possible and best fitness trainers in the world? This dude is just lazy! Its so pathetic! He needs to wake up before he dies of a heart attack!

  • lori

    Put everything a side… the fact they have loads of money a reality TV show ect… this guy is a human being with issues too. I know cliche way to start off my point , but I guess what I’m trying to say is that its sad that he’s going trough this weight problem and people don’t leave Him alone about it. You always hear people saying money isn’t everything yet were constantly blasting celebrities for showing bad emotions its like “wait you can’t be sad you have money” “what you have issues? But your rich” really people come on money can’t fix everything . If he hasn’t lost the weight its obvious he has serious reasons for it that doesn’t concern us.

    P.s a lot of this comments are nice :-) this goes out for people that think they have the right to make others feel like shit

  • GV

    I feel bad for the kid. He was pretty young when the Kardashian reality freight train took off– and I honestly feel his mother’s priorities may have been skewed in regards to what constitutes success and happiness. With all the stuff surrounding him (make-ups, break-ups, substance abuse, fame chasing, pressure to earn ungodly amounts of money)– it’s no surprise that he is burying his feelings in something! Not everyone can stomach the Kardashian life and come out intact!

  • moi

    The writer of this article must be a very shallow, small minded and cruel person. Go get a fucking hobby instead of writing about a human being who is obviously dealing with some shit

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      Which part in particular did you find small-minded?

  • markmywords

    I sincerly feel sorry for him. Something’s not right and he seriously needs help and a friend. My money is on a combination of severe depression (medication can make you gain weight) in combination with a food addiction. I would not rule out a thyroid condition and I don’t think this is something you go public with because alot of people have misconceptions about it. I don’t think this personal trainer is a sober coach, I think he’s the suicide watch.
