Kim Kardashian Mocks Rob Kardashian’s Weight Gain, Compares His Rita Ora Tattoo to a ‘Cabbage Patch’ Doll

Ouch. Kim Kardashian didn’t spare her brother Rob’s feelings on the January 3 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The then-pregnant star, 35, took a jab at Rob’s weight gain while her family was vacationing (sans Rob) in St. Bart’s this summer.

Momager Kris Jenner had just noticed Tyga’s tattoo of her daughter Kylie Jenner’s name and confronted him about it, noting that all of her son Rob’s tattoos had meanings.

“Rob’s stupidest tattoo is when he got Adrienne [Bailon] and then covered it with Rita [Ora],” Kylie, 18, said of her bro’s permanent reminders of his ex girlfriends.

But Kim took the joke further, quipping, “He covered it with a life-size Barbie doll of Rita that has now turned into a Cabbage Patch. Have you seen it lately? It was a Barbie doll, and he has gained weight, [now] she’s like a huge Cabbage Patch.”

The episode was taped months before it was revealed that Rob, 28, was hospitalized and diagnosed with diabetes. The now-reclusive star has been struggling with his weight for years.
