Poor Rob Kardashian.
The youngest Kardashian has been going through a rough patch in his life. With drug problems, dramatic gain in weight, and distancing himself from his family, the issues were never ending.
Although Khloe and the rest of the Kardashian Klan are doing the best they can to help, it seems like the only one person who can really help him is Lamar Odom, who Rob saw as a father figure to himself.
On a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, KoKo blamed herself for not being able to protect her baby brother.
Khloe wasn't the only person who was affected during these arguments.
She didn't necessarily state the reason why, but an insider has come forward to reveal the reason why Rob went into this downward spiral.
According to the insider, what Khloe actually meant during her KUWTK confessional was the arguments that occurred during the time she and Lamar were experiencing marital problems.
The source went on to say when the basketball player cut off all communication with the family, Rob took it the hardest.
That was the start of his depression because he felt abandoned by the only person who he thought measured up to his father.
That's so heartbreaking.
It's been over 10 years since Rob's father passed away and the loss is still haunting the 27-year-old.
