Rob Kardashian in Tears After Ditching Kim, Kanye 'Superficial' Wedding (VIDEO)

Rob Kardashian, the younger brother of famed reality star Kim Kardashian, reportedly fled Italy in tears over the weekend ahead of his sister's wedding to Kanye West.

The sock designer, 27, raised eyebrows on Saturday when he arrived at LAX airport hours before Kim was scheduled to exchange vows with West in Florence. Insiders claim Rob opted not to attend Kim's wedding after a family fight erupted, reported the New York Daily News.

"All this wasn't his scene," a bodyguard for the family told

It is unclear what exactly prompted the family feud or whether there actually was an argument, however, Rob appeared downcast upon arriving in Los Angeles, which fueled the fight rumors.

The E! star was reportedly absent from Kim and West's rehearsal dinner in Paris on Friday as insiders claim he opted to stay in his hotel room.

"Rob said he was sickened by Kim and Kanye's display of wealth and clothes and beauty and called it 'superficial bulls---,'" a source told X17.

"Kim was pissed that Rob hadn't made an effort to drop any weight over the past few months," the insider went on.

Rob has experienced weight struggles in recent months which has made him slightly more reclusive than usual. One report claims he chose to skip the wedding due to self esteem issues surrounding wedding photos, but this theory remains unconfirmed.

"Rob basically thinks Kim cares about him only for his appearance and he said he'd 'make life easier' for her and just leave," the sourced added.

"He just doesn't seem to feel comfortable or happy around his family at all," the source explained. "They're all wrapped up in the same pretty world and he just doesn't fit in."

Last week Rob hit back at weight criticism after he began trending on social networking site Twitter due to recent pictures that revealed his weight gain.

"So i found out i was trending for being fat... thank you all it really made my day," Kardashian tweeted to his 4 million followers.

"I'm aware that I'm fat that def aint a surprise to me lol ... I'm a grown man and will work on myself when i choose," he wrote in a series of tweets.
