Fans were pretty shocked to see Scott Disick and Caitlyn Jenner in the Kardashian/Jenner Thanksgiving photo posted by Kylie and her sisters, but everyone wanted to know—where was Rob? Well, Kris Jenner explained the reclusive star’s absence this week!
The Thanksgiving dinner was held at Khloe’s house, and Kris told Maria Menounos during a radio interview, “He lives with Khloe. So he was around, and then went over to a buddy’s house.”
Over the past few months, a sighting of the 28–year-old has been rare, if not impossible, as he has chosen to stay out of the public eye for a number of reasons, the main one being due to his weight gain.
But his mom said he’ll be just fine. “He’s doing all right. You know, he’s doing his best,” she said. “He’s not into being on camera as much as the rest of us. But he’s working on himself. He’s going to be okay.”

A few weeks ago, Khloe revealed that Rob's weight gain stemmed from Lamar Odom and her splitting in 2013.
"My dad died when Rob was 16," the 31-year-old in People magazine. "Rob doesn't have a father figure in his life. When our stepdad Bruce now Caitlyn Jenner was around, he was great, but he was going through his own things that none of us understood at the time.”
But then Lamar entered their lives and filled a void for Rob. “Lamar was Rob's father figure,” Khloe continued. “Once Lamar left – and it's not Lamar's fault at all – I think Rob didn't know where to go. He was like, 'I don't have guidance anymore.'" Well we're glad Kris is saying Rob is doing alright these days! What are your thoughts on her explanation for Rob's absence on Thanksgiving?
