Kim Kardashian West was reportedly banned from attending the birthday party of her step-brother, Brody Jenner.
She wasn't alone in the shadows, however, as her mother, Kris Jenner, was also not welcome.
Brody celebrated turning 31 with other family members at the Beverly Hills Hotel Polo Lounge yesterday. Those invited include his mom and dad, Linda Thompson and Bruce Jenner, his brother, Brandon, and his sisters, Kendall and Kylie.
A source close to the
mess family says,
"His girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter, his dad Bruce, his mom Linda Thompson, brother Brandon, and of course younger sisters Kendall and Kylie were there. Kim, and his step-mom, Kris Jenner, were noticeably absent,"
The source continued, "But there was never any thought to even invite Kim [Kardashian]. Publicly the two will say there is no feud, but that is all for keeping up the appearance of having a big extended family for the sake of the E! reality show."
Another source said of the pair, "Brody never sees Kim except when they are filming, and the two aren't even considered friends."
This non-existent feud seems to have been brewing for some time. We all know it. The signs were there months ago, right?
Brody was not in attendance at Kim Kardashian's star-studded wedding to babby daddy Kanye West in Florence, Italy back in May.
The reason? Reportedly, Kim refused to invite Brody Jenner's girlfriend, Kaitlynn Carter, to the lavish ceremony.
He did, however, attend the wedding of Kim Kardashian's ex, Reggie Bush, in July.
That's strange. He said he didn't attend because he doesn't know Kanye West at all and he had to work, anyway.
What do you think? Is their relationship all for show, literally? I guess only time will tell how the rocky relationship between Kim Kardashian and Brody Jenner will affect the show.
