There have been several conflicting reports regarding his progress. Some say the KUWTK star is getting better; others say the opposite.
On Wednesday, Kris Jenner attended a TV and pop culture panel for the National Association of Television Program Executives in Miami where she talked about her son's status.
The momager said his diagnosis is actually a good thing!
She confessed :
"That was almost a relief, because then he can take all the steps… It was like a godsend, so it's all good."
The 60-year-old explained that this illness will force Rob to get his life on track.
"It's one thing to say, 'Oh, I'm going to get on the healthy path,' but then you really need to get on the healthy path… Rob has been to that happy place before in his life."'
She admits that one of his weaknesses is that he is especially hard on himself.
"He's such a perfectionist… It's a big challenge for him now to turn all that around, but he can, and that's the good news, is he can turn it around and and be in a much healthier place."
We are rooting for Rob to make a comeback!
