As the couple prepares for the premiere of their E! reality show this September, they had a candid interview with People magazine about their relationship.
Rob was particularly candid about his weight gain, his new relationship, becoming a father, and being committed to mending his broken relationship with his family.
On not attending sister Kim’s 2014 wedding:
“I was doing my suit fittings in Paris right before the wedding and I just wasn’t comfortable. I’m 6’1″ and at my most I probably weighed 300 lbs. There were cameras at the airport on our trip there and I was very unhappy with the person I saw in all the pictures,” he admits. “I’m upset I missed my sister’s wedding but it was a personal decision.”
He also spoke up about withdrawing from his family’s lives, noting the extreme self-consciousness he felt over his weight gain.
“I just wasn’t down to have photographers follow me, so I made sure I was away from all of that. I’m very good at disappearing. I wasn’t happy with myself so I didn’t want my family to see me that way. [Khloe and I] butt heads about it. She’s all about, ‘your biggest revenge is your body,’ and I’m trying to find happiness in my own way.”
Now, he says after falling in love and getting back in the gym, he wants to see his family as much as possible.
“The way I dealt with my issues maybe wasn’t the best, but nobody can make me happy but me. Now I want to see everybody in my family every chance I get. You never know what is going to happen tomorrow, and I don’t want to do that to my mom [Kris Jenner]. There were definitely dark days for me, and I’m still not fully happy looking at myself in the mirror. But I’m working towards that. And I’m happy.”
