Kim Reveals What Really Went Down With Rob At Her Wedding

It wasn't as drama-filled as you'd expect.

The monumental occasion that was the Kimye wedding brought in guests from all over the world, but there was one noticeable absence: Kim's brother, Rob. While rumors spread about a heated spat between the two followed by a hasty subsequent departure from Rob, the Kardashian Klan has stayed silent about the wedding drama—until now. In an interview with Bravo's Andy Cohen, Kim responded to a viewer question about her approach with Rob, which the questioning viewer called "non-empathetic." He's been shying away from the camera throughout the most recent season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. When the two do interact on-screen, Kim doles out the tough love.

Kim told Andy that Rob's early exit from her wedding wasn't the result of an angst-filled argument, but was relatively drama free. From what Kim said, it sounds like Rob was nervous about seeing all the guests—and the cameras—that were sure to be in appearance at the Kimye wedding, so he decided to duck out early. He wrote her a long email the night before, where he explained his actions, Kim said. Rather than letting it upset her, she shrugged it off and focused on enjoying her nupitals—as any bride should on her wedding day. In the future, she just hopes her brother can come to a place where he feels more comfortable in his own skin. "You can only pray and wish that someone would not miss out on more memories in life, because life is about memories, so, fix the problem." We're with Kim on this one—let's hope Rob gets out of this funk soon!
