Kim Kardashian baffled her followers when she posted several photos of her brother Rob on Instagram to celebrate his birthday, only to remove them minutes later.
Mysteries surround Kim K. after she posts and then deletes a photo of her reclusive brother Rob
Celebrating her only sibling Rob’s 36th birthday on Friday, the 42-year-old reality star posted a trove of photos online.
As her followers pointed out, however, Kim quickly deleted the set of photos, only to repost the same message and photos with one of the images missing.
On Friday, Kim posted a video and a series of photos to Instagram in honor of her brother’s special day.
She wrote: “Happy Birthday Robertito.
“I just love you SO SO SOOOO much!!! I wish I could post your singing voice notes on here to show the world your true talents.
“BUTTTT swipe to the last one to hear Robbie speak fake Armenian.”
Fans who scrolled through the images would have seen a video grab of a text conversation with audio of what appears to be Rob speaking Armenian with a heavy accent.
Kim then added: “You make our entire family’s days with you’re silly messages! Not sure what I would ever do without you!”
In addition, followers swiped through a gallery of photos spanning decades, including throwbacks to Kim and Rob’s childhood and teenage years.
However, the brother and sister appeared in a now-deleted photo that was never replaced.
Rob and Kim’s oldest sister Kourtney, their youngest full sister Khloe, and their half-sister Kendall Jenner were all present in the photo in question.
However, Kylie Jenner, the youngest member of the Kardashian family, was partially cropped out of the photo, leading some fans to speculate that Kim deleted the original post because of this.
An enthusiastic supporter wondered: “When Kim re-posted the image, she deleted the original. It puzzles me why.”
Another supporter pointed out, “none of these pictures are recent from like this year or last.”
On Friday, Rob’s other siblings posted tributes to him online, with Khloe writing a lengthy Instagram post.
Khourtney also shared a throwback snap of Rob, branding him a “80s icon” as they posed together in a photo as kids.
Neither Kylie nor Kendall, meanwhile, have mentioned their only sibling in any social media posts.
