Rob Kardashian fans were worried that the reality star was spiralling back into his old ways after he suddenly deleted all his Instagram posts – and now it’s been revealed by a friend that he’s in fact going through a “dark period,” but his antics are “nothing new.”

Yep, despite reports that Rob has been skipping filming of his and Blac Chyna’s reality show Rob & Chyna because he fears it’s “compromising their relationship,” the source says that isn’t the case at all.

“He is just going through one of his mood swings, which is common for him. But he is still filming,” the pal told Entertainment Tonight.

“He goes through his dark periods. He gets depressed and doesn’t want to really do anything, doesn’t leave the house. It got better for a bit when he first started dating Chyna, but he’s in a rut now. He’ll snap out of it.”

Rob is no stranger to retreating away from the limelight, after he struggled with depression and weight problems for a period of years. But, his sisters have recently praised his fiance Blac – who he is expecting his first child with – for helping him turn his life around.

“Don’t we kind of think it’s a miracle that Rob – who doesn’t even show up to Christmas for the past three years, literally he wouldn’t leave his room – but the fact that now he’s created a Snapchat; the fact that he wants to be so public blows my mind,” Khloe said on a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Kim agreed and said: “She gave him confidence, more power to her. Even if there’s been some drama … If this is what it takes, then I don’t care who he’s dating. I’m so happy that he’s just feeling better about himself.”

Us too!
