Rob Kardashian has been open about his struggle to lose the 50-plus pounds he’s packed on over the past few years, but is his slow progress to shed the weight leading him to take drastic measures?

The 26-year-old star, who has reportedly become withdrawn over the past few months since finding his weight loss a bit more slow going than he’d expected, is allegedly considering going under the knife to beat the bulge once and for all.

Despite his countless posts on social media about his newfound dedication to working out, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star “hates gyms,” according to a source for the National Enquirer.

However, with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding fast approaching, momager Kris Jenner is reportedly egging Rob on to drop the pounds by any means necessary.

“He's under strict orders from Kris to lose 70 lbs before Kim's wedding to Kanye West this summer,” says the insider. “Rob figured that getting his stomach stapled is the only way to meet Kris' deadline.”

While Kris’ influence on her children may be strong, Rob’s had a long history of doing things his way, from eschewing the family business for his sock line to pursuing higher education, so it seems highly unlikely that Rob would cave to his mom’s pressure on an issue this serious.

Do you think that Rob will succumb to the pressure to lose weight by having surgery?
