GVK/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images(NEW YORK) — The Kim-Kanye wedding was missing a Kardashian. Kim Kardashian’s brother, Rob Kardashian, chose not to attend the ceremony between his sister and Kanye West in Florence, Italy, on Saturday.
A People magazine source says the 27-year-old did fly to Paris, but he ditched the pre-wedding celebration at the Palace of Versailles held on Friday night. The insider continues, “He just didn’t want to see a bunch of people both nights and really just is not feeling like himself.”
TMZ is claiming Rob skipped the wedding because he’s embarrassed by his weight gain and didn’t want to appear in family photos. Supposedly, the matter was a source of friction among the Kardashians, so much so that he flew home alone.
People magazine’s source denies there was a “big fight” between Rob and Kim before he returned to the U.S.
Last week, Rob defended himself on Twitter against snarky comments made online about his appearance. He brushed off rumors that he’d entered rehab or therapy, and added, “I’m aware that I’m fat that def aint a surprise to me lol and my only therapy will be in the gym anyways had to say somethingggggggggg.”
Rob posted several tweets on Monday but didn’t address his absence from Kim’s wedding. Instead, he paid tribute to the military in honor of Memorial Day, and wished his brother-in-law Scott Disick a happy birthday.
