Well, that's one way to sweep a little family drama under the rug.

Over the weekend, Rob Kardashian posted a bizarre Instagram photo (below) of Rosamund Pike from Gone Girl with the caption: "This is my sister kim , the b---h from Gone Girl."

Clearly, the "Kim" he's referring to would be Kim Kardashian.

Rob, who turned 28 last week, also deleted all of his old posts except for the bloody shot of Pike. He also unfollowed his whole family, including Kim. He eventually followed all of them back.

This isn't the first time the Arthur George sock designer has exhibited weird behavior on social media. He has stopped and started following his famous family members many times before and has posted his fair share of cryptic messages.

Unnamed sources (who it's safe to assume are members of the Kardashian family or their spin control folks) are brushing off Rob's behavior.

"He has a funny sense of humor and posts weird things and then deletes them," a source close to the Kardashian family told People calling the whole thing "so dumb."

"It's just him… He always posts things he thinks are funny and deletes and unfollows people… He's so bizarre, he posts and deletes and thinks people aren't going to notice."

A family insider who spoke to E! concurred: "He's just being crazy and he thinks it's funny... He can just be a little bizarre with his humor." A second source also added that Rob has been struggling with his motivation to work out and lose weight. "He just doesn't seem to care right now. He's not motivated. He seems really sad about his weight, but he also isn't trying to do anything about it."

People's insider echoed similar sentiments. "He's been depressed and just a bit off in general… But he has always been this way. He just can't lose the weight and he doesn't try — he just sits around."

It's no secret that Rob has been battling issues behind closed doors. He hasn't appeared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians in quite some time and is rarely seen in public, which is why it certainly seems like there may be more to his Instagram post than meets the eye. Did the weight gain really make him do it? If you'll recall, Rob was the only Kardashian member to skip out on Kim and Kanye's wedding last May.

Whatever is going on, Kim has publicly shown support for her brother. "Happy Birthday to my one and only brother Robbie!!!!" she posted on Rob's birthday last week. "I remember this Vegas party of yours like it was yesterday! I love you so much and can't wait to share so many more memories with you! Kiki [heart] Riki!!!"

Khloé shared some photos of Rob's birthday celebration later that night, but it's unclear if Kim was in attendance.
