Rob Kardashian jetted out of breathtaking Italy days before Kim and Kanye said their “I do’s” in gorgeous Florence. It was reported that the only son of the Kardashian family was upset and in tears as he hurried to leave Italy before his sister’s wedding. Rob was also a “no show” at the rehearsal dinner that was held in Paris, France on Thursday.
A bodyguard for the Kardashian family reportedly said that Rob chose to stay in his hotel room during the celebratory dinner because it simply wasn’t his scene. Rob was reportedly under a great deal of pressure to lose weight, and it was said that Kim was disappointed that her brother did not try to work harder in an effort to lose the extra pounds in time for her wedding. It may have been for these reasons that Rob decided to discreetly high-tail it out of Florence and not share in the happy couple’s joy.
A source revealed that Rob claimed to have been “sickened” by Kimmy and Kanye’s opulent displays of clothing and wealth, and that these extravagant displays were not his cup of tea. Kim Kardashian’s alleged disappointment at her brother’s appearance only added fuel to the fire. Rob believes that Kim only cared about him for his appearance at the wedding, so he simply decided to “make life easier” and leave Italy. The 27 year-old realty star and Dancing With The Stars favorite, reportedly left Italy on Saturday morning, choosing to skip all the pre-wedding festivities, including the family luncheon.
According to Hollywood Life, Kim was bashing Rob about his weight, and she was concerned that his presence in the family pictures would ruin them. Kim’s comments apparently got back to her brother, and consequently, he called her out on them. Hollywood Life also reported that as Rob and Kim’s argument escalated, everyone choose to side with Kim, and as a result, Rob was devastated and decided to leave.
According to the New York Daily News, Rob also did not attend a pre-wedding brunch held at the Paris mansion of Valentino Garavani. Rob was not the only famous celebrity no-show. Jay Z and Beyoncé also did not show up, choosing instead to spend the weekend in the Hamptons. The celebrity guest list included singer John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen, and television personality LaLa Anthony. Spectators allegedly broke into a raucous applause when the couple, famously known as Kimye, kissed for the first time as husband and wife.
