When keeping up with the Kardashians First aired in 2007, four Kardashian siblings starred in the reality show. Although the sisters, Kourtney, Khloé and Kim Kardashian, got most of the daytime air time, another Kardashian appeared regularly in front of the cameras.
Rob Kardashian, Kris Jenner’s only son, was once an integral part of KUWTK. Now he has yet to be spotted on The Kardashians, the new Hulu reality show following her famous family. Fans recently speculated as to why Rob avoided the spotlight for so long.
Fans Noticed Rob Kardashian Didn’t Attend Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s Wedding
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker recently made headlines due to their extravagant wedding in Portofino, Italy. It was an incredibly exclusive event; only close friends and family were present. However, The The Kardashians fans noticed that a family member was missing.
Rob didn’t make the trip to Italy to see his big sister Kourtney get married. There has been a lot of speculation as to why Rob hasn’t been on social media, including Reddit. Some fans noticed Rob wasn’t at Kourt’s wedding, while others weren’t bothered by the absence. As one fan wrote, “Sometimes I really forget they even have a brother.”
Rob Kardashian has a daughter, Dream, with ex-partner Blac Chyna
Rob may have missed his sister’s wedding in Italy for many reasons. First and foremost, Rob has a daughter with his ex, Blac Chyna. Dream divides her time between her parents. He may not have been able to bring her to Italy. Kim didn’t bring her young children, only her eldest daughter, North West. Kourtney may not have wanted many young children at her wedding, or Rob may not have been able to travel with Dream due to his custody agreement with Chyna.
Rob recently applauded Chyna on Twitter. When she claimed she wasn’t getting child support, Rob tweeted that he had Dream most of the time. Rob probably couldn’t break his custody schedule with Chyna to go to Italy, especially since things are contentious between Rob and Chyna.
Chyna and Rob have been fighting for custody of Dream for a long time. But Chyna’s legal battles aren’t just about Rob himself. She Recently Lost a Lawsuit Against the Kardashian Women Claiming They Interfered With Her E! contract for his reality show with Rob and used their influence on the network to get Rob and Chyna canceled.
Fans think Rob Kardashian is done with the spotlight
Some fans think the reason Rob didn’t go to the wedding is that he’s just done being in the spotlight. Although the KarJen’s lifestyle seems glamorous, it’s not easy. The sisters are constantly ridiculed, criticized and judged for everything they do. Rob was in the same boat until he took a step back after Rob and Chyna has been cancelled.
A Reddit commenter wrote: “I suspect the last thing he wants is to be photographed outside and I bet taking a picture of the ‘elusive’ rob jr. would make money for any photographer who would have it and who wants to deal with it?
Other fans believe that the reality TV nature of KarJenner’s life makes family events work, in reality. One fan wrote, “I think Rob viewed the wedding as a work event for the show and had no interest. It did not give a family wedding atmosphere.
It’s true that when your job is filming your life for a reality show, almost every event is a work event. Rob is no longer on the show. It’s not his job.
