Brody Jenner reveals his 'disappointment' after Caitlyn Jenner missed his wedding
If there's one truth that's applicable anywhere, it's that the personal lives of the rich and famous aren't necessarily always a bed of roses. Just like anyone, they can get bogged down in familial spats, grudges and feuds; all of which can become exacerbated by publicity and the allure of the limelight. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the case of the Jenner family, who have been given even more exposure through the hit reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
This weekend, Brody Jenner finally settled down and tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend Kaitlyn Carter, exchanging their vows on the idyllic Indonesian island of Sumba. Unfortunately, Brody's parent, former-Olympian Caitlyn Jenner wasn't present for his nuptials, and instead chose to attend a charity event in Austria. Now, Brody has opened up about the disappointment he felt when Caitlyn decided to snub him. His regret was made all the more galling due to the fact that Caitlyn had apparently known about the wedding for more than a year.
In an interview with People magazine, Body stated: “It was a big disappointment. Especially considering that she had known about the wedding for a year." Brody added that he wasn't surprised that his invite had been ignored, claiming "I’m pretty used to [Caitlyn] doing that sort of thing."
He went on to confirm that he had also extended an invitation to his half-sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, saying: "We sent them an invite but we never heard back. I would have loved to have had them there." Luckily, his brothers Burt and Brandon Jenner managed to make it, so he wasn't completely without back-up at the ceremony.
In a recent interview, 68-year-old Caitlyn revealed that she spends most of her time alone in her Malibu mansion, and barely interacts with her children, since they had all chosen to "move on." Jenner stated "I spend a lot of time by myself here in the house ... I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough. They all have lives. They’ve all moved on. We’re just human beings; we’re going to be here for a very short time. We come and we go and at the end, when it’s all said and done, hopefully your family is going to be there."
It's a shame that the Jenner family is so fractured, but you never know: perhaps there's still hope that they might reunite and put their differences aside long enough to meet each other ... if only for the sake of the massive ratings.
