Rob Kardashian

Lamar Leaving Family ...

Real Reason for Rob's Woes

8/1/2014 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob Kardashian Lamar Odom Problems
Rob Kardashian's downhill spiral was triggered by Lamar Odom ... but we've learned it had nothing to do with Lamar's drug use ... it was all about fatherly abandonment.

Sources connected with the Kardashian family tell TMZ ... Rob was devastated when his dad -- famed O.J. lawyer Robert Kardashian -- died back in 2003. We're told he took it much harder than his siblings and never really got over it.

When Khloe married Lamar ... the bballer became a father figure to Rob. Sources close to Khloe tell us Rob thrived around Lamar, inspiring him to start a business and get in awesome shape. They became best friends, but Rob idolized him.

Khloe has said on the Kardashian's show, Rob's recent troubles were triggered by the dark things that happened in the house. But we're told it's not about drugs -- Lamar compartmentalized his drug use and mostly kept it out of the family home. We're told Khloe was referring to the arguments and breakdown of the marriage.

Our sources say when Lamar cut off the entire family and went radio silent ... Rob went into a tailspin because he felt abandoned by the only person who measured up to his dad. And that's when Rob got deep into lean and other drugs, which resulted in a dramatic weight gain.

Rob's problems started when his money hungry, fame thirsty, Granny Pimp mom Kris Jenner started pimping out the kids, including him.

Rob should cash in whatever he has and get the hell away from that family. She should not be talking about his issues publicly.

He is a grown a$$ man. Stop making excuses! If he doesn't like how he looks or is living, change it instead of crying over it. Ugh!

Rob grow up! Start blaming your drug abuse, weight problems, depression on the death of your father or Lamar Odom leaving the family (like Lamar isn't a phone call away!!).

With all that money get therapy in a confidential/private setting where your wh0re of a mother can't exploit it for Keeping Up With The Trash show.

You Don't Know    

PEOPLE! If all of us would stop reading & commenting on this whore family & make it obvious that we don't care about them, MAYBE tmz will stop doing stories on them. So, this will be my VERY LAST post to a Kardashian story. If you really don't care about them, don't give tmz more clicks by reading stories about them. Stop reading the Kardashian stories & stop commenting on them. My "Kardashian story" strike has begun.

You can't rely on other people to make you happy, you have to be happy with who you are as your self. Everyone needs to have God in their life, God is what helps up through this world, he stands by us at all times, people will disappoint you ever time.

This family will stop at nothing make themselves always look like the victims. It is always someone else's fault and we're supposed to feel sorry for them.


Rob's mother is his first and foremost problem which is just compounded more with each shallow, sleazy, self-centered sister.

No doubt he's been told to detach from these Kockroaches but they'd rather bring back Lamar for another round of trash talking.
