Brody Jenner has already addressed his reasons for missing step sister Kim Kardashian’s May wedding.
He told reporters at a recent event, he had a work obligation. And it’s just an unfortunate coincidence of timing that he missed Kim’s wedding but attended the wedding of Kim’s ex-boyfriend a few weeks later.
Now, he tells PEOPLE in more detail what really happened.
“I simply had a very last-minute thing. They didn’t want to let people know about their wedding early in advance, and I had already booked gigs in Chicago and some other places, so I was already working,” said Brody.
Brody also denies rumours that his girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter, wasn’t invited to Kim’s wedding. “Of course Kim would let me bring my girlfriend if I wanted to,” Brody added. “I’m her brother – it’s her wedding. I am allowed to bring someone if I want to.”
“I’ve been friends with Reggie for a very long time,” he continued of going to Reggie Bush’s wedding. “I really love him and he’s one of my favorite people on this entire planet. I got to have a really close relationship with him through him and Kim being together.”
“The only opinion that matters in this situation is Kim’s, and me and her are good,” he says. “She is incredible.”
Back in 2013, Brody told reporters he didn’t know whether he would even be invited to Kim’s wedding. Referencing the engagement surprise, that he wasn’t invited to witness, he told Us Weekly at the time, “Well, you never know with the family… I didn’t get invited to the engagement, so you never know.”
UPDATE July 19: Brody spoke on a podcast with Dr. Mike Dow. He said he missed Kim’s wedding because it was in Paris, which was too far, and at very short notice, when he already had work commitments. Moreover, he doesn’t even know Kanye and yet he and Reggie are close friends (also, Reggie’s wedding was in the US).
