For over sixteen seasons, the world has kept up with all things Kardashian/Jenner through the family's hit reality show. From sibling drama and seventy-two-day marriages (we're looking at you, Kim) to lavish getaways and, of course, Caitlyn Jenner's transition, we've seen it all unfold on screen.
But there's 1 sibling who's more absent than not - Rob Kardashian. In fact, many people forget he's even part of the a-lister family in the first place.
The star has been pictured for the first time in years and since the snaps surfaced, everyone's been saying the same thing. Keep scrolling to take a look.
Remember Rob Kardashian? Here he is pictured years ago.

Rob is the youngest of the 4 Kardashian siblings.
Just like his famous sisters, he shot to stardom in 2007.

Along with Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie, Rob was a staple on the show.And we watched as every drama, scandal, and lavish vacation unfolded on screen. We even got to see Caitlyn Jenner transition back in 2015 (though according to Caitlyn, one Kardashian sibling didn't take to it too well - read all about it at the end).
But from the show's seventh season, everything changed.Rob went from one of the show's most-seen faces to a mere minor character.
Rob's issues with his weight quickly became apparent.The star gained 100 pounds over the course of the year - something he has since admitted caused him immense insecurity and led him to his somewhat reclusive lifestyle.
Almost overnight, we began seeing less and less of him...
via: imdbHis lifestyle plummeted him into the grips of depression and viewers watched as his sisters and mom struggled to come to terms with the "new Rob."
He began skipping family vacations...
via: imdbAt one point, he even tweeted "No one will ever understand how much it hurts."
Kris Jenner admitted she sometimes "cried herself to sleep" thinking about Rob's declining mental state.In an April 2015 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris opened up about her son's worsening depression: "I cry myself to sleep literally every night worrying about [Rob]. It's breaking my heart."
Viewers would get a rare glimpse of Rob on KUWTK just once or twice in an entire season.
Rob found himself in the midst of endless controversy with his highly public relationship with Blac Chyna.
via: Getty ImagesIn 2016, the pair kicked off their romance which quickly became plagued with scandal and drama.
The pair even have a daughter together.
Rob made a brief return to the small screen with the pair's reality show, Rob & Chyna..But their on-off relationship wasn't meant to last, and a hell of a lot of drama went down in the months that followed the breakdown of their then-engagement.
The pair had a very public breakup.

via: YouTubeIn December 2016, hackers leaked what appeared to be texts from Chyna’s phone branding Kardashian as “lazy and fat" and declaring her intention to leave Kardashian with Dream. Just hours later, Rob took to Snapchat and Instagram with photos and videos of his empty house, claiming that Chyna left him and took Dream with her. But Chyna quickly denied it and, a few days later, they were once again posting happy family pictures on social media.
But matters got even worse...
Now he could be facing charges...
But now the star has been pictured for one of the first times since the scandal broke out. His family has posted 2 new snaps of the star.
via: imdbRob, who, as we mentioned before, doesn't post on his own Instagram, has barely any photos of himself on the account - so we rarely ever get to see what he's up to now.
