One of the greatest Kardashian mysteries has finally been solved! Fans wondered for years why Rob Kardashian left Kim’s wedding without seeing his sister marry Kanye West. Now, Rob has revealed the reason why he skipped out on the ceremony!
“I was doing my suit fittings in Paris right before the wedding,” Rob, 29, tells PEOPLE magazine during an intimate interview, and I just wasn’t comfortable. I’m 6’1″ and at my most I probably weighed 300 lbs.”
It was Rob’s weight and insecurity that ultimately made him ditch Kim Kardashian, 35 and Kanye West’s, 39, big day. “There were cameras at the airport on our trip there and I was very unhappy with the person I saw in all the pictures,” Rob confesses. “I’m upset I missed my sister’s wedding but it was a personal decision.”
Aww. It sounds like it’s one decision that Rob still regrets. He still struggles with the weight, even with help from his gym partner (and current fiancé) Blac Chyna, 28. After Rob dropped an astonishing 30lbs., the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star admitted he gained about 20 pounds back. While he weights 285, his ultimate goal is 210 lbs.
He can do it, so long as he doesn’t get discouraged. After he ditched Kim’s wedding, Rob withdrew from the public, ashamed of his appearance. “I wasn’t happy with myself so I didn’t want my family to see me that way. [Khloe Kardashian and I] butt heads about it. She’s all about, ‘your biggest revenge is your body,’ and I’m trying to find happiness in my own way.”
Happiness includes a life with Blac, as Rob credits her with helping him get through his darkest times. She has also helped him shed the pounds and get a better grip on his life. Now, Rob has a fiancée, a baby on the way and a brand new reality television show – Rob & Blac, which will detail their life together. When the two sit down to mail out wedding invitations, it’s safe to say that the first one sent will be to Kim and Kanye!
What do you think about Rob’s reason for skipping Kim’s wedding, HollywoodLifers? Are you surprised or did you suspect that it was his weight all along?
