Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were married in an extravagant wedding in Italy, but surprisingly, many of their close friends choose to skip the over-the-top affair. Not only did Rob Kardashian skip the wedding after a huge family fight, but Brody Jenner, Anna Wintour, and close friends, Jay Z and Beyoncé, also decided not to attend.
Rob Kardashian flew over to France and was all set to attend the big wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Rob even flew over his trainer to work out with him during the week. However, there are reports that Rob felt like he didn’t fit in with the rest of his family, and he bailed on the wedding. There are pictures of Rob at the airport, flying out of France only a few hours before the ceremony started.
Rob was not the only family member that skipped Kim Kardashian’s wedding; the reality star’s stepbrother Brody Jenner was also a no show. Jenner claimed that he had to work as a DJ in Chicago on the same day that Kardashian and West were going to be married. There were reports that Jenner skipped the wedding because his girlfriend was not invited to attend. However, Jenner has admitted in the past that he had not met West, and Jenner also did not attend the couple’s surprise engagement.
Although Brody Jenner has always had a strained relationship with the Kardashian clan, his brother Brandon went to the wedding, along with his wife Leah. Even with Brody skipping the wedding, there was obviously still a lot of family drama, as Rob Kardashian left in tears before it even started.
There has also been a lot of speculation as to whether close friends Jay Z and Beyoncé would attend the nuptials. West had asked Jay Z to be the best man, and it was reported that Jay Z was going to attend, along with Beyoncé and baby Blue. However, in a surprising twist, Jay Z and Beyoncé both skipped the wedding. The couple was reported to be relaxing in the Hamptons instead.
Beyoncé posted a picture of the couple on Instagram, with words, wishing them a lifetime of happiness. Perhaps the couple wished to avoid Rachel Roy, who was rumored to spark the elevator fight between Solange and Jay Z only a few weeks ago. Beyoncé also posted a selfie with a new hair do, leaving fans to wonder if the singer was trying to steal the spotlight from the wedding.
Another famous face that skipped Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s wedding was Anna Wintour. Even though the couple invited the Vogue editor, Wintour declined due to a long-standing family commitment. However, Andre Leon Talley, also from Vogue, was at the wedding.
Even with everyone who skipped the extravagant wedding, nothing tops Rob Kardashian leaving hours before the wedding due to family drama. Rob stepped out the week before the wedding and caused a media frenzy when he appeared heavier than he has ever been before. No doubt everyone is wondering about what could have happened to make Rob feel so awful and need to leave the country immediately? It certainly drew more attention away from the wedding than Beyoncé’s selfie did.
