When we first met Rob Kardashian, he was just a regular college lad, deep in a semester’s workload. Oh yeah, he was also giving the entire world an intimate look inside his family’s always-eventful life through a reality TV show’s lens. And since they show’s debut in 2007, we’ve witnessed a whole lot of change in his Hollywood life, from headline-making breakups to a clothing launch to a battle against his weight and a reported rehab visit.
Keep clicking on this timeline to see the many phases of Rob’s life for yourself.
Remember this? Adrienne Bailon was an important part of Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 2 and 3, often appearing on camera and showing off some coupley PDA with then beau Rob. The reality TV star and Adrienne split in 2009 after Rob cheated on her. He later admitted his infidelity on the show. Since Adrienne, Rob hasn’t had a steady girlfriend appear on camera.
While Rob was always super focused on getting his degree from USC, the reality TV star almost bailed on the books to venture into the modeling industry. Who gave him the idea? Big sister Kim, who told explained to him that he wouldn’t always have that bod forever. After a whole lot of yelling from Kris, Bruce, and his other sisters, Rob decided to stick to his studies.
The first tattoos are always the most memorable. And when Rob decided to get a photograph of his father’s face inked on his arm, the Kardashian household (plus Adrienne who was still in the picture!) was not pleased.
Physical violence has plauged this star on-screen, too. Back in 2010, Rob Kardashian and Scott Disick proved they indulged a bit too much at the bar when they got into a fistfight. It was a doozy. Luckily, Rob and Scott have rekindled their brotherly bond since.
Moving in with Khloe and Lamar in brought a TON of wow-worthy moments to the screen for Rob Kardashian. Rob’s weight gain issues truly started while living with his sister and now ex-brother-in-law. At one point, Khloe and Lamar installed an alarm on their refridgerator to get him to cease his midnight snacks. Relationship issues flared up as well. For quite some time, Khloe thought her friend Malika and Rob were dating—and the flirting kind of made the assumption seem true.
Rob Kardashian got in amazing shape while he was on Dancing With the Stars. He got his groove on with Cheryl Burke, and we’d love to see him back on stage. Clearly, this was a happy time for the celeb!
The Rita Ora and Rob Kardashian relationship is super confusing. One says they weren’t a thing, the other says they were! There were also supposed Twitter wars. Overall, it seems the two definitely hung out but realized it just wasn’t going to work out. Do you wish you could have seen Rita Ora on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians screen?
August 2012, Keeping Up With the Kardashians previewed a family therapy session where Rob felt like no one was helping him with potential business ideas. He revealed that he felt like everyone viewed him as a loser. While trying to explain himself, he broke down in tears surrounded by his sisters and his mom.
Things were looking up for Rob when he finally debuted his sock collection, Arthur George. He seems amazingly proud of his creation, even allowing his little sisters Kendall and Kylie model his designs.
So what’s going on with Rob now? He’s repping Viviscal, a product for those experiencing hair loss, and is on a goal to lose the weight he’s gained. Today, the entertainment industry was abuzz with reports that Rob had entered rehab for depression. Apparently, a source told Star Magazine that his weight gain was also the result of drug and alcohol use. However, Rob’s rep shut down those rumors with a simple statement, explaining that he’s simply not in rehab. What do you think of Rob’s drama?
