Gwendlyn Brown wasn’t in attendance for her mom, Christine Brown’s wedding to David Woolley, and we have the answer why.
As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Christine married her soulmate, David Woolley, in a “fairytale” ceremony in Moab, Utah.
The outdoor occasion was filmed, seemingly for a future episode of Sister Wives or its own spinoff, and 330 of Christine and David’s friends and family members were there to celebrate their special day.
Not present, however, was Christine’s daughter, Gwendlyn, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Kody Brown.
Reportedly, Gwen’s absence had Christine feeling sad, according to Gwendlyn’s sister, Mykelti Brown Padron.
It’s understandable that Christine would have wanted Gwendlyn present for her wedding day, but according to Gwendlyn, she had more important things to tend to.
Gwendlyn, who still lives in Flagstaff, Arizona — a five-hour drive to Moab, Utah — revealed on her Patreon that she was simply too busy to be bothered attending her mom’s wedding.
Gwendlyn Brown cites being busy with school and her house as the reason she skipped out on her mom’s wedding
Per The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Gwendlyn told her subscribers, “I was busy lol. Lots going on with school and my house.”
According to Gwendlyn, her organic chemistry class studies took precedence over her mom’s wedding.
Gwendlyn also noted that Christine was aware that she would be missing out and planned accordingly.
“She didn’t mind,” the 22-year-old added. “She took me off the guest list [as] soon as I told her.”
According to what Gwendlyn’s sister, Mykelti, told her own Patreon subscribers, the sisters were obviously not on the same page or in contact regarding their mom’s nuptials.
Mykelti claimed that she had no idea why Gwendlyn didn’t show up to the festivities, calling her younger sister’s absence a “shock” to her.
Although Gwendlyn opted not to attend Christine and David’s wedding, most of the rest of the Brown family’s children did.
