Fans of the Kardashian–Jenner clan missed seeing one of the key family members at Kourtney Kardashian's wedding to Travis Barker — her younger brother Rob Kardashian.
The 35-year-old one-time reality star opted to skip the lavish nuptials in Portofino, Italy, over the weekend because he 'didn't feel comfortable' with all of the 'spectacle,' E! News reported on Tuesday.
Rob had been largely absent from the latter seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, following the fall out from his failed relationship with Blac Chyna, who lost her $100 million lawsuit against several of his sisters and his mother Kris Jenner.

Although almost every other member of Rob's family seemed to be living it up at Kourtney and Travis' wedding in coast Portofino, he wanted to keep out of the spotlight after previously shunning it.
'Rob didn't feel comfortable attending Kourtney's wedding because he doesn't like a spectacle,' a source close to him said.
They added that the celebration was 'just not his thing,' and he didn't venture out often because he had 'become an extremely private person' in recent years.
Luckily, there wasn't any bad blood between Rob and his oldest sister, who understood his situation and desires.

'Kourtney and the entire family completely understand,' the source clarified. 'Kourtney didn't expect Rob to attend and knows she has his support either way.'
The Poosh founder was likely cued in that Rob wouldn't be making the international voyage after he also sat out his sister Kim's 2014 wedding to Kanye West.
In 2016, he revealed to People that part of the reason he skipped the nuptials was because of his discomfort with his body and weight gain at the time.
'I was doing my suit fittings in Paris right before the wedding and I just wasn't comfortable,' he explained. 'I'm 6-foot-1 and at my most I probably weighed 300 lbs. There were cameras at the airport on our trip there and I was very unhappy with the person I saw in all the pictures. I'm upset I missed my sister's wedding, but it was a personal decision.'
