A few expected faces were absent from the nuptials of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on Saturday (May 24) in Florence, Italy.
US Weekly reports that Jay Z and Beyonce decided to spend Memorial Day weekend in the Hamptons instead of Italy for fellow musician Kanye’s big day. Beyonce did, however, wish Kim and Kanye the best on Instagram.
Another not-quite-as-famous face who is an even bigger surprise being absent for the ceremony is Rob Kardashian, Kim’s younger brother.
A source tells US Weekly that Rob flew out of Paris, France Saturday morning and arrived in Los Angeles shortly after the ceremony was taking place in Florence. An observer from the George V Hotel in Paris says Rob was seemingly enjoying spending time with his family this week, so it’s a bit of a mystery why he bailed before actual ceremony and reception.
