Stepping back into the limelight! Reclusive reality TV star Rob Kardashian was back on Instagram on Thursday, July 30, posting (and so far not deleting) a photograph of himself, shirtless, and chowing down on a pulled pork sandwich while in Malibu.

The 28-year-old Kardashian, who has kept himself out of the public both online and in real life for many, many months, made the now-uncharacteristic decision to share the photo with his online followers amid sister Khloe Kardashian's recent interview about their living arrangements.

But despite Rob's apparent show of increased confidence, it turns out the snap isn't an up-to-date one, but rather a #TBT photo from the past.

"#tbt Me just chill-zoning in Malibu eating a pulled pork sandwich," Kris Jenner's son captioned the snap.

Rob's been making a slow and gradual return to social media in past months, wishing sister Khloe happy birthday on June 27, and gushing over niece Penelope Disick in mid-July.

Earlier this week sister Khloe revealed she's enjoying having her brother live with her in her house while he works through tough times, admitting she might be making life a little too easy for him at times.

"Rob lives with me now, and I wouldn't have it any other way," Khloe told Complex magazine. "I love having him with me. I have a big ass house and I wanted it so he could feel like, comfortable. He's going through a hard time now," she confided. "And [my home is] behind gates. With this crazy lifestyle you have to think of places where you can still have your freedom," she continued.

"I call him my son as a joke," she went on. "I'll call my assistant and be like, 'Did you guys ask if he wanted lunch?' or this or that and my sisters hate that I do that. I do baby him but I'm a maternal person," she said.
