Rob Kardashian Didn’t Attend Kim & Kanye’s Wedding

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.

Details from Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Wedding

KENZO TRIBOUILLARD/AFP/Getty Images(FLORENCE, Italy) — Kim Kardashian and Kanye West undoubtedly had one of the most lavish celebrity weddings of all time.

It was also one of the most impeccably-planned parties.

Their menu, a decadent four-course meal reportedly catered by Galateo Ricevimenti in Florence, gave guests a taste of the best of Italy. A pasta course came first, followed by monkfish, and then beef with a potato-truffle tart and green beans. A seven-tier wedding cake and homemade strawberry sorbet capped off the meal.

Throughout the night, guests entertained themselves in a black-and-white photo booth, and listened to songs including “These Arms of Mine,” by Otis Redding, “This Is How We Do It,” by Montell Jordan, and “I Wanna Sex You Up” by Color Me Badd, according to E! Online. There were live performances too and not just by the groom: John Legend reportedly performed his hit, “All of Me” during the couple’s first dance.

However, one of the most touching moments, E! Online reported, was when West, 36, toasted the Kardashian family in a 15-minute speech, calling them, “the most remarkable people of our time.”

Prince William Returning to the Cockpit?

Photo by Mark Cuthbert/UK Press via Getty Images(LONDON) — Nearly one year after Britain’s Prince William stepped away from his duties as a search and rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force (RAF), new reports say the prince could be climbing back into the cockpit.

The U.K.’s Sunday Times reports William, 31, is seriously considering taking a “day job” with the East Anglian Air Ambulance service in Norfolk, near the country home he shares with his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge, and their nearly 1-year-old son, Prince George.

The reason for the change is that William is not yet ready to take on full-time royal engagements, according to the Times.

“The Duke is fully committed to his foundation and charities, but he feels he has not yet got flying out of his system,” a royal aide told the Times.

William completed seven-and-a-half years of full-time military service before leaving operational service in the armed forces last September. As an RAF pilot, he reached the level of captain and garnered headlines when, in August 2012, he completed two rescues in four days.

As a pilot with the nonprofit East Anglian Air Ambulance, William would join a crew, “called to an average of four incidents per day,” including, “life threatening situations such as road traffic accidents and medical emergencies,” according to the unit’s website.

“He absolutely loves flying and it gives him the opportunity to fly,” said ABC News’ royal contributor Victoria Murphy.

The palace has not confirmed the reports surrounding Prince William’s future. In a statement to ABC News, the palace would say only, “The Duke is considering a number of options for public service.”

In December of last year, the prince went back to school, attending a 10-week program in agricultural management at the University of Cambridge consisting of seminars, lectures and meetings.

An unnamed royal aide told the Sunday Times that Prince William has consulted with both his father, Prince Charles, and his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, about his plans and that the family is “fully supportive” of his plan.

“I think the Queen will be supportive of him having another role as well,” said Murphy. “She wants him to be happy.”
