Khloe Kardashian Blames Herself For Rob Kardashian's Problems

Something is going on with Rob Kardashian right now. Various rumors have claimed everything from depression to eating disorders to drugs. Maybe it’s all three. Maybe it’s none. None of us are there to know for sure, but if one thing is clear, it’s that Khloe Kardashian blames herself for it.

The likeable thirty-year-old reality star opened up publicly this week for the first time about the troubles her brother’s going through, and it’s very clear, she thinks she’s at least partially responsible for exposing Rob Kardashian to her now ex-husband Lamar Odom. They all lived together for awhile, and Khloe seems to think the two men made some terrible choices after they were exposed to each other.

Here’s a portion of her actual quote, as per TMZ

"Only Rob and Lamar know what happened in the house and know what's going on. I was not there to protect Rob. I was not there to protect myself."

Rob Kardashian is an adult. He should be more than capable of monitoring himself and deciding who or what is influencing him. That being said, I can see why Khloe would feel guilty. She’s the one who brought Lamar Odom into the group, and while that relationship led to some happiness for awhile, it clearly also didn’t work out over the long haul. Beyond that, if even a fraction of the rumors are true, Odom may have made some poor choices in the family home, and peer pressure can be a tough thing for some people to overcome.

Pop Blend’s sincerest thoughts go out to Khloe, Lamar and Rob. All of them are struggling right now. Here’s to hoping they can find peace and happiness and get back on a safe and healthy long-term path.
