Kourtney Kardashian’s family and friends supported her as she said “I do” to Travis Barker, but Rob Kardashian, her younger brother was not in attendance during the nuptials in Italy.
The 35-year-old decided not to attend simply because the event was on too grand of a scale, as he likes to remain low-key, a source says.
“Rob knew Kourtney and Travis’ wedding would be a big affair with cameras and paparazzi, so he decided not to go. He likes to stay out of the limelight and feels more comfortable attending more private family events and parties where he can be more under the radar,” said the source.
Despite not being there, Rob still offered his support to his big sister and her husband.
“He’s very happy for Kourtney and supportive of her. They are still very close and Kourtney understood Rob’s feelings, as did the rest of the family. Rob is continuing to focus on being the best dad to Dream and absolutely loves being a father,” the source added, according to reports.
But this was not the first time that Rob skipped a family wedding, as in 2014, he flew to Europe and then flew back home to California, on the morning of Kim Kardashian’s wedding to Kanye West, missing the ceremony.
In the month following his family’s public court battle with his ex, and the mother of his daughter, Blac Chyna, Rob has continued to keep a low profile.
But, in Rob’s absence, Kourtney had the support of other family and friends, except her children’s father, Scott Disick, who spent the weekend at the beach.
