The photo was taken at Kris’s birthday party in 2021, where she enjoyed karaoke with her family.
Kim captioned the post sweetly: “Happy Birthday Mom @krisjenner. We had so much fun celebrating you last night and loved feeling what it’s like to see a version of you dressed up like you.”
‘It felt powerful and fun! That’s who you are! Hearing that all your friends were giving speeches about how to make time and appear in front of each of them made me happy that they got a glimpse of what it’s like to be your daughter. It doesn’t matter what you show up to me and all my siblings at any hour of the day and never complain when we all need your attention at the same time,” Kim said.

Rob was largely absent from the final seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, following the breakdown of his failed relationship with Blac Chyna, who lost her $100 million lawsuit against several of his sisters and his mother Kris.

He also chose not to attend Kourtney’s lavish Portofino, Italy to Travis Barker in May 2022 because “he didn’t feel comfortable with all the “spectacle,” according to a report by e! News at the time.
They added that the celebration “just wasn’t his thing” and that he didn’t go out often because he had “become an extremely private person” in recent years.
Fortunately, there was no bad blood between Rob and his eldest sister, who understood his situation and desires.
“Kourtney and the whole family understand completely,” the source said. “Kourtney didn’t expect Rob to be there and knows she has his support no matter what.”

No thanks: He also chose not to attend Kourtney’s lavish Portofino, Italy to Travis Barker in May 2022 because “he wasn’t comfortable with all the “spectacle,” according to a report by E! News at the time; Kourtney and Travis wed on May 22, 2022 in Portofino, Italy
The Poosh founder was likely warned that Rob would not make the international trip after he also served his sister Kim’s 2014 wedding to Kanye West.
In 2016 he revealed to: People that part of the reason he skipped the wedding was because of his discomfort with his body and weight gain at the time.
“I was trying on my costumes in Paris just before the wedding and I just didn’t feel comfortable,” he explained. “I’m six feet and at my highest I probably weighed 300 pounds. There were cameras at the airport during our trip there and I was very unhappy with the person I saw in all the photos. I’m upset I missed my sister’s wedding, but it was a personal decision.”
Rob quit the family’s former reality show shortly after after the implosion of his relationship with Blac Chyna.

“Rob likes to stay out of the limelight and keep to himself,” the source added. “He’ll be performing at more private low-key events, but he doesn’t like being around the cameras and at these kinds of events.”
Last year, during the reunion finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe tried to explain Rob’s absence from the series, which she attributed more to his traumatizing relationship with Chyna than to his body image and health issues.
“It’s not so much about physical appearance,” she explained, adding that he “just needed a break” from filming.
“It’s about how he internally felt about some of the women in his life, and how they treated him or how he thought they might have used him to reach certain areas or levels,” she continued.
“I think that really touched him because my brother is such a lover and has an incredible heart and personality,” Khloe gushed. “I think he’s only going to get stronger. I think you need to be heartbroken and learn from your mistakes, and I think he’s just stronger and feels better to be around, and more vulnerable or exposed.”
In May, Rob’s former partner Blac Chyna lost her $100 million lawsuit she filed against Kris, Kim, Khloe and Kylie for allegedly defaming her and the E! Network cancels its reality series Rob & Chyna.

The jury voted against Chyna on all counts, although they admitted that the Kardashian-Jenners often acted in bad faith.
During the intense trial, Rob testified that a celebration on their show’s first refresh turned into a violent altercation when she allegedly pointed a gun at him, hit him with a metal bar and wrapped a phone charging cord around his throat.
In her own testimony, she denied being violent but admitted to pointing the gun and putting the cord around his neck, which she said was just a joke.
Rob got into the water before when he posted naked revenge porn photos of Chyna on Instagram in 2017. The platform subsequently banned him, but his mother’s communications company was later allowed to run an official page for him, on which he claims not to post directly.
He and Chyna share a five-year-old daughter Dream, who spends a lot of time with her cousins, but is also largely absent from their reality shows.
