Brody Jenner wasn’t the only Kardashian-Jenner family member not in attendance at Kim Kardashian‘s wedding to Kanye West. Also missing from the festivities was Kim’s younger brother Rob, 27, who bailed on the ceremony at the last minute.
A source confirms to Us Weekly that Rob flew out of Paris, France, on Saturday morning, May 24, a few hours ahead of his sister’s much buzzed-about nuptials in Florence, Italy. He arrived in L.A. shortly after the bride and groom exchanged vows at the picturesque Forte di Belvedere.
Unlike the rest of his famous family, Rob had been keeping a low profile abroad. While his mom and sisters were seen hitting up all the tourist spots in the City of Light, Rob was never photographed. He was also conspicuously absent from the group’s Wednesday feast at Hotel de Costes, and from the Friday morning brunch at Valentino’s Chateau de Wideville.
The elusive sock designer was finally spotted on Friday, May 23, in the lobby bar of the George V hotel in Paris. An observer told Us Weekly he seemed to be in a relaxed, good mood as he dined with stepdad Bruce Jenner, nephew Mason Disick, niece Penelope Disick, Bruce’s son Brandon Jenner, and other friends.
Rob has struggled publicly in recent months amid rumors that he went to “fat camp” to lose weight. He shot down those rumors on Tuesday, May 20, after leaving L.A. for Paris with mom Kris Jenner. “First, I don’t believe in rehab or therapy or anything of that sort and second, I’m a grown man and will work on myself when I choose,” he tweeted.
