LOS ANGELES, July 30 (UPI) -- Khloe Kardashian and her brother Rob have been on-again, off-again roommates for some time, but the motherly television personality says she "wouldn't have it any other way."
In an "uncut" version of her Complex interview, Kardashian revealed that her younger brother is living in her home while he undergoes "a hard time."
"I love having him with me. I have a big [expletive] house and I wanted it so he could feel like, comfortable," she told the magazine. "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."
The 31-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star reminisced on the time she moved into Rob's three bedroom townhouse after her split with Lamar Odom, saying that he was "so great about it."
"It was fun at first, and then I think it was overwhelming for both of us," she said. "Obviously he would get annoyed from time to time or when he wanted girls over. I totally get it."
She says she's a good roommate, however, and gives her brother space. "I'm good with him. I never bother him," she said. "I call him my son as a joke. 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."
In March, Khloe revealed Rob wasn't "at his happiest place that he once was," although she was sure that he would get there. "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," she said to Wonderwall.
"It's a growing process...I will always be his number one supporter."
