When Kanye West and Kim Kardashian married back in May, the whole ceremony was perfect and everything went really well, but there was one noticeable absentee. This crowded and stars-filled wedding was short of one important member, Kim’s brother Rob Kardashian.
So, what is the reason Rob wasn’t there?
When Kim was asked by talk show host Andy Cohen if she had reconciled with her brother because of his absence, Kim replied:
“He sent me a long email the morning of the wedding that he was going to leave. There was no fight. I just thought – You know what, this is my day, I’m not even going to worry about it,” the star replied.
Apparently, Rob had decided to skip his sister’s wedding due to his insecurity caused by his weight problem at the time. Rob was struggling with his weight issue for a while and didn’t want to be photographed at the ceremony.
In her recent interview, Kim seems to have confirmed this by saying: “I totally understand that he wouldn’t want to see a lot of people if he was feeling uncomfortable and you can only pray and wish that someone would not miss out on more memories in life, because life is all about memories.”
If you are a fan of their reality TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” you might have noticed Kim giving Rob some tough love on several occasions throughout the show. However, Kim insists she is empathetic about her brother’s struggles and she tries to be supportive as much as she can.
“My brother and I are so close, he’s one of my best friends. I’m definitely a tough love kind of person. If I don’t like something that’s going on in my life, I change it, and I don’t sit and complain about it for a year.”
