Brody Jenner insists he wasn’t slighting stepsister Kim Kardashian by choosing her ex-boyfriend’s wedding over hers.
Jenner raised eyebrows when he attended Reggie Bush’s nuptials to Lilit Avagyan this past weekend, after previously skipping out on Kardashian’s wedding to Kanye West in May.
“It’s kinda ridiculous that everybody’s making such a big deal out of it,” Jenner told reporters at the 9th annual ESPY Awards All-Star Celebrity Kickoff Party on Monday, according to Us Weekly. ”Reggie’s been a friend of mine for a very long time so I went to his wedding. It’s all good.”
Jenner later explained to People, “I’ve been friends with Reggie for a very long time. 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.”
Jenner also made it clear that one wedding didn’t have anything to do with the other.
“Not going to Kim’s wedding was not me trying to diss her and Kanye,” Jenner told People at the kickoff party, where he later deejayed. “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.”
Despite missing his stepsister’s wedding, Jenner insists there is no bad blood between him and Kardashian.
“The only opinion that matters in this situation is Kim’s, and me and her are good,” he said. “She is incredible.”
