Many thought that Mark Wahlberg was throwing shade at Jenny McCarthy after he skipped brother Donnie Wahlberg’s nuptials. However, a source close to Mark has revealed to HollywoodLife.com the truth behind a possible family feud.
It’s not secret that the Wahlbergs are close — they have a family reality show in The Wahlbergers to prove that — and so there was speculation that there might be a family feud after Mark Wahlberg, 43, skipped out on brother Donnie Wahlberg‘s wedding to Jenny McCarthy. While many pointed the finger at Jenny as a reason behind the feud, a source close to Mark has revealed to HollywoodLife.com the EXCLUSIVE truth behind all of this drama.
Mark Wahlberg Not At Donnie Wahlberg’s Wedding To Jenny McCarthy: Was It A Diss?
“The [stories] of a feud [are] bullsh*t,” our source reveals. “There is truth that Mark didn’t think the relationship would last once it started and he definitely thought that it was a fling but as time passed by he realized that Donnie was actually really falling in love with [Jenny].
“Mark appreciates that she makes his brother happy. Family is extremely important to Mark.”
We’re so glad to hear that! It’s such a nightmare when your family doesn’t approve of your spouse.
Mark Wahlberg Posted A Sweet Video On Instagram Congratulations Donnie Wahlberg & Jenny McCarthy
Mark tweeted out his congratulations to the happy couple, and considering the various reports which alleged that Mark doesn’t like Jenny, it seemed as if the Transformers actor may have congratulated them so publicly just to ward off suspicion.
That said, our source went on to explain that “We all have to realize he is one of the biggest stars in the world. So, when he is home from filming he wants to celebrate moments with his family, and a birthday is very important and one of those moments.
“But he supports his brother and he is not sending these social media messages just for show, he really means the words he is saying.
“He couldn’t attend because of family obligations; it is as simple as that.”
Mark’s daughter Ella Rae‘s 11th birthday is on Sept. 2, but Mark will be unfortunately be filming that day. So, the family decided to celebrate the weekend before.
No drama here! (Sorry to disappoint!)
