Pretty eyes! Rob Kardashian emerged from his self-imposed hiding in the early hours of Wednesday, January 20 — sharing the first selfie of himself for many months, but revealing only his eyes.

The troubled reality TV star has become increasingly reclusive over the past few years, but his return to selfie-posting on Wednesday gave fans the first glimpse they've had of the 28-year-old celebrity in a long time.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star covered most of his face with a scarf and wore a beanie hat over his head. But his unmistakable eyes and well-kept black eyebrows were on display for all his Instagram followers to see.

The reason for Kardashian's post is unclear. He didn't caption the photo, and in posting this new picture, he also deleted all previous Instagram photos, which included a recent joke about the Powerball lottery and a funny photo of Kanye West covered in donuts.

Earlier this week, Rob's sister Khloé Kardashian revealed she believes her brother's struggles stem from his delaying dealing with the death of their father, Robert Kardashian Sr., until after he graduated high school.

"He kind of had no direction and I feel like he felt lost there," she told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. "I think that's when he started dealing with my father's passing," she added. "And then breakups and all this stuff happened, which I think added to other things in his life, but it's issues he had to deal with from the start that he just didn't," she said.
