Rob Kardashian gained over 100lbs after Rita Ora broke his heart in 2012.
And these days the Keeping Up With The Kardashians vet is so uncomfortable with his weight he only wears black T-shirts and track suit pants.
In a preview for his new show Rob & Chyna, the 29-year-old complains to rail-thin pal Scott Disick that he will not dress up until he sheds more weight. But sister Kim’s stylist Jen Rade does not let the guy off easy, pushing him to squeeze into a too-small suit.
Not a good feeling: Rob Kardashian is uncomfortable during a fitting in a preview of Sunday’s Rob & Chyna episode
Insensitive? Kim Kardashian’s stylist Jen Rade pushed the 29-year-old to try on suits even though what she has brought does not fit
No help either: Scott Disick tries to be supportive by telling Rob everything can be tailored but that does not lift Rob’s spirits; it probably doesn’t help either that Disick is rail thin and fits into everything
The preview is for Sunday’s upcoming episode that airs on E!
Rob tries on clothes with Rade who has worked with not just Kim and Khloe but also Angelina Jolie. Jen also sells her own brand on QVC.
The star needs to get ready for the DailyMail.com Seriously Popular yacht party in Cannes in June, which he promised fiancee Blac Chyna he would attend.
Jen wants him to wear suits but he says no.
Meanwhile, skinny Disick, 32, sits on a bed looking depressed.

‘These don’t fit. I can’t even button them,’ says Rob.
Rade seems annoyed as she tells him sometimes one has to try on 20 pairs before finding the right fit.
‘I mean, everything can be tailored,’ adds Scott.
‘I do not want to go to Cannes anyways,’ says Rob. ‘Even when I was in the best shape of my entire life, I still had an insecurity with my weight.’
Stop! When the stylist tries to get him to try on suit jackets, he says he won’t put one on for ‘at least six months.’ Rade doesn’t seem to get Kardashian is in a bad mood over the fitting and she keeps pushing
Not backing down: Rade won’t stop. ‘Even a linen?’ she asks. ‘No. I’ll only wear a suit on this coming New Year’s,’ he says
Pushy: Jen then seems irritated as if he is causing her stress: ‘It just seems like the point of this was to try and break you out a little bit’
Rob explains his general dislike for being famous.
‘On top of that, there’s paparazzi people that follow me and take pictures of me and that shuts me down to not wanting to go out when I’m obviously not feeling my best.
‘I’m not comfortable in my skin, I’m not comfortable with this weight. So I feel like I’m not happy with anything I do right now.’
No sympathy: At one point Rob seems to tear up, but Jen doesn’t seem to see it
When the stylist tries to get him to try on suit jackets, he says he won’t put one on for ‘at least six months.’
Rade doesn’t seem to get Kardashian is in a bad mood over the fitting and she keeps pushing.
‘I’ll never wear a suit,’ he has to say to get her to back down.
He takes the blame: ‘It’s not you, I just won’t be happy – period. That’s just how I am,’ he says
He is the wisecracker: Scott has clearly been added to Rob & Chyna to lighten the mood with his jokes
The guy is being tortured on the show: Every week on R&C – which airs Sundays 9 pm ET on E! – Rob’s flaws are dissected; Kardashian and Chyna are expecting a baby girl on November 16
But Rade won’t stop. ‘Even a linen?’ she asks.
‘No. I’ll only wear a suit on this coming New Year’s,’ he says.
Jen then seems irritated as if he is causing her stress: ‘It just seems like the point of this was to try and break you out a little bit.’
‘It’s not you, I just won’t be happy – period. That’s just how I am,’ he says, trying to take the blame for the extremely awkward fitting than is low on laughs and high on pressure. It looks as if the reality wonder is about to start crying but no one notices.
Rob & Chyna airs Sundays 9 pm ET on E!
Rade’s work? Jen often styles Kim Kardashian, seen here in Miami on Friday

Kim loves J. Brand. It’s been a while since we’ve spotted her in a pair but she’s going back to her basics with this stonewashed grey/ black denim pair.
These distressed denims feature a roughened up hem with holes at the knees for an edgy look that Kim paired with her favorite wardrobe staple– a nude bodysuit.
