Playing Khloe Kardashian: I Call Rob My Son As a Joke

Khloe Kardashian says she gets "crazy" when her brother Rob Kardashian threatens to move out.

The 31-year-old reality star says she loves that Rob, 28, stays in her "big ass house" and it sounds like she's looking after him as he goes through a "hard time."

"Rob lives with me now and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love having him with me," she told Complex magazine in an uncut interview. "He's going through a hard time now and it's behind gates. With this crazy lifestyle you have to think of places where you can still have your freedom."

As for how he feels about her not wanting him to leave, Khloe admitted, "Listen, he's a man, and 28 and I'm sure it doesn't sound good to say, 'Oh I live with my sister,' but it's not because he has to. I'm like, 'Put this into perspective, your friends live at home with their parents because they can't do anything else. Your sister’s literally holding you captive and actively making you. So if that makes you feel better, say that all you want.' I don't want to put words in his mouth, but I'm sure that's why he would threaten to move out."

Once thing is for certain, Khloe has Rob's back. "I call him my son as a joke," she said. "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."

As for whether she thinks her younger brother feels "suffocated" at times, Khloe confessed that he does but she's working on it.

"I never bother him," she continued. "I just bought him a rug for his bedroom and he was so cute. He'll text me and tell me how much he likes it and he notices things. So, I like it."

Rob is rarely seen out in public but in June, ET obtained photos of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star making a late-night food run at In-N-Out Burger in Woodland Hills, California.

Khloe said that like Rob, she too is a homebody because of all the paparazzi. "Sometimes. When all your friends want to go to dinner, my brother and I are like, 'No' because we just get too much anxiety," she disclosed.

He wasn't the only sibling Khloe defended during her Complex interview. She also spoke out about her 17-year-old sister Kylie Jenner's relationship with 25-year-old rapper Tyga.

"I think at 16 I was probably f**king someone that was in their 20s, for sure," she said. "I wouldn't say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old."
