Rob Kardashian is not in rehab, despite some online reports.

Earlier today, tabloids claimed that the 27-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star had checked into the Meadows Trauma and Addiction rehabilitation center in Wickenburg, Ariz. to undergo treatment for depression and substance abuse issues. However, a rep for Rob tells E! News exclusively that, "Rob is not in rehab."

Additionally, a source says Rob was working out with his trainer Gunnar Peterson in L.A. today when the false rehab reports broke this morning.

Another source tells us they spoke to Rob a few weeks ago. "He was in really good spirits, seemed very much himself," they dished. "Said he'd been working out every day and was focused on getting back in shape."

Rob has been lying low recently, even deciding to forgo his family's big vacation to Thailand earlier this month (sister Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick also skipped the trip).

Rob wasn't shy about missing Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and the rest of his family while they were across the globe. On the day that the brood returned home to L.A., Rob tweeted, "Mi Familia is home! Yeee!!" Sister Khloé replied with a heart emoji.

Several days before that, Rob tweeted (then deleted) a cryptic message the day before April Fool's Day that read, "No one will ever understand how much it hurts."
