Rob did not disclose the specifics of his diagnosis, however, he told fans that he will reveal “the full diagnosis/prognosis on the Sunny Podcast”, which will be released in two weeks.
He continued, “It’s not something I would normally talk about publicly but I figured there are others who struggle with similar things and I wanted to remind you that you’re not alone. You’re not stupid. You’re not ‘bad’. It might feel that way sometimes. But it’s not true :).”
