Rob Kardashian skipped out on sister Kim’s wedding because he didn’t want to take part in family photos due to his weight gain, according to TMZ.

The site reports Rob felt “depressed” and “insecure” over his size, and refused to pose for any photos — despite well-meaning encouragement and support from the family.

“Things got heated because the more they insisted, the more Rob dug in his heels … and eventually he made the call to fly home alone,” says TMZ. The outlet describes the Kardashians as “heartbroken” over the decision. The family has yet to comment on his absence.

As Gossip Cop reported, Rob abruptly left the festivities late Friday, and Kim tied the knot with Kanye West on Saturday. He flew to Paris earlier in the week, but wasn’t pictured in any of the family’s activities around Paris leading up to the official wedding events.

As he traveled for the trip, however, he was photographed for the first time in months, leading to mean-spirited comments on Twitter and other sites about his weight. He and sister Khloe later slammed the criticism.
