Kris Jenner branded as false the claims that Rob Kardashian has entered rehab over his weight gain and alleged addiction.
The momager also congratulated his son for his sock business, Arthur George.
The “KUWTK” matriarch told Entertainment Tonight that Rob Kardashian has not entered a rehab facility in Palm Beach, Florida and the stories are “complete fabricated.” The story about the sock mogul entering rehab was published by Gossip Extra who quoted Mark Behar, supposedly a bodyguard to the stars who became Rob Kardashian’s friend a few years ago.
“He told me ‘This is it, I just need to stick with it and do this,'” he claimed.
“Rob will probably lose 10 to 20 pounds within the first few weeks by just being in rehab and daily programs relating to his detox,” Behar added.
It was widely rumored that aside from depression as a result of his weight gain, Rob Kardashian was also allegedly hooked on marijuana and alcohol.
Meanwhile, Kris Jenner posted on Instagram a photo showing a design for Arthur George which reads “Bad Ass” on both soles of the socks.
She wrote, “Great meeting this morning @robkardashian so proud of you and @arthurgeorge87 !!! You are amazing!!!! #earlybirdcatchestheworm #proudmama #love.” If the rumors are to be believed, Kris Jenner and Rob Kardashian are not seeing eye-to-eye on certain things which is why he left the momager’s house to live with Khloe Kardashian in her Calabasas mansion.
However, in one of the episodes of “KUWTK,” titled “No Retreat,” Kris Jenner expressed her concern over the weight gain of Rob Kardashian.
“If I don’t help him do something drastic, he’s going to die,” she said .
“He was someone who was very athletic and he’s gained over 100 pounds in the last year.
I’m just waiting for this horrible thing to happen and there’s nothing we can do about it.”
