Brody Jenner is getting married, but because of a family divide, Caitlyn Jenner will not be attending the wedding. The rift apparently goes back to the time when Bruce married Kris Jenner, and sources say Brody is extremely upset that his dad won’t be there for him on his wedding day.
TMZ is reporting that Caitlyn RSVP’d “no” because of a lucrative business opportunity, and her refusal to attend has hurt her son. It also didn’t sit well with Brody’s siblings Brandon, Burt, or Cassandra.
Insiders say that after some heated discussions, Caitlyn chose business over her son. She did, however, attend the bridal shower and doesn’t object to the marriage. And, insiders say she is planning to throw the couple a big party when the newlyweds return to Los Angeles.
For years, Brody and Caitlyn have had a strained relationship because he felt his dad abandoned him when Bruce married Kris. Brody and his siblings blame Kris for being “selfish,” and they also thought Caitlyn was an “enabler.” Apparently, they believe Kris put a wall between her husband and his kids from previous marriages.
Of the four kids, Brody has had the hardest time forgiving Caitlyn because they have not connected, and they haven’t bonded over something like car racing or sports like his siblings have. Caitlyn also allegedly has issues with Brody’s “life choices,” but his siblings believe that should be irrelevant when it comes to Brody’s wedding day.
The older Jenner kids feel that both Kris and Caitlyn have failed to act like responsible adults when it came to them, and that has caused a lot of suffering. But, even though he has had a difficult time letting go of his grudge, Brody still wanted his dad to be a big part of his wedding day.

Also skipping Brody’s wedding will be his younger half-sisters Kylie and Kendall, but the older kids don’t blame the two girls because they were both very young when their parents put up the wall between the families. So, Brody never really had a relationship with Kylie or Kendall.
“My two little sisters, we never even heard from them. They never even RSVP’d I don’t think,” the 34-year-old revealed. “We sent them an invite, but we just never heard anything back. They’ll be missed. I would have loved to have had them there.”
Brody and his fiancée Kaitlynn Carter will be tying the knot in Nihi, Sumba Island in Indonesia. The Hills alum proposed in May 2016 after two years of dating. At the time, he said he couldn’t be more in love with Carter, and he can’t wait to spend his life with her.
Caitlyn Jenner has not commented on Brody Jenner’s upcoming wedding.
