Before he posted a disturbing Gone Girl image aimed at his sister Kim Kardashian on Sunday, Rob Kardashian's other sibling Khloe was speaking up in defense of her brother.

"I just feel, especially over the last year, Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety," she told Wonderwall while hosting a party at Las Vegas' 1 OAK. "He's definitely not at his happiest place that he once was, and I know he can get to that happy place and he will."

Khloe certainly isn't suffering from social anxiety. The reality star turned heads at 1 OAK when she showed up in a sexy Balmain dress.

This past week, Khloe was echoing similar sentiments about her brother on his birthday, writing: ""Never will I ever meet another man as great as you! I know this is the year where you will find your happiness again! I will be right by your side, holding your hand, every step of the way!!! I adore you my one and only brother!!"

The 28-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star -- who has gained some weight in recent years -- hasn't been seen out in public much since he fled his sister Kim's wedding in Italy this past May.

"We all kind of get to a place where you don't know where to go in life or whatever, so I think it's important for him to know that he always has people to lean on and it's not unnatural for people to not know even where to begin," Khloe, 30, added. "It's a growing process. ...I will always be his No. 1 supporter."
