Brody Jenner had a good reason for missing the wedding of stepsister Kim Kardashian — he had work to do.
The reality television star explained this week the reason he missed out on the Florence nuptials of Kim and new husband Kanye West. Brody raised eyebrows last week when he went to the wedding of his pal Reggie Bush, the NFL player and Kim’s ex-boyfriend.
During his podcast, The Brody Jenner Podcast with Dr. Mike Dow, Brody explained that Kim’s wedding was just too far and he was too busy to be able to make it.
“There are a few reasons that came into play on why I didn’t go to Kim’s — one thing being it was in Paris, which is a long way away. Reggie Bush’s wedding was right down the street. It was in San Diego so it was a lot closer,” the 30 year-old said.
“The second reason is she didn’t let anybody know in the family until like right before — only a few weeks notice,” Jenner continued. “By that time I booked stuff that weekend. I was working and had DJ gigs.”
That wasn’t all. Brody explained that he and Kim aren’t exactly the closest, and that he barely knows Kanye West.
“To be completely honest, I don’t know Kanye. Like at all. I really don’t,” Jenner said on his podcast. “I’ve had one conversation with him that maybe lasted 15 seconds or 20 seconds. I’ve known Reggie for a very long time. Reggie dated Kim for years and I developed a very close relationship with Reggie and Lilit. We spent a lot more time together as a whole.”
“That’s not to say I didn’t call Kim and say, ‘I wish you the best and I love you and support you. This is a great decision,” Jenner continued. “But by the way — I would have loved to have gone to that wedding… it just didn’t work out and it’s all good.”
Brody Jenner wasn’t the only noteworthy absence at Kim’s wedding. Her brother Rob Kardashian also skipped out, leaving Florence the night before and catching a flight back to Los Angeles. His quick duck-out was reportedly the result of a family squabble mixed with Rob’s own insecurity about his weight gain.
It appears that Kim Kardashian isn’t all that broken up about it. A source toldUs Weekly that Kim doesn’t care if Brody Jenner went to Reggie Bush’s wedding, as he and Reggie have been friends since Kim introduced them years ago.
