We know that Caitlyn Jenner's own family barely speaks to her. But that's the Kardashian side of things.
On the other side, they still want her in their lives. In fact, Brody Jenner invited Cait to his wedding.
Curiously, Cait has said that she can't attend -- and a report claims that the blame for that lies at the feet of gal pal Sophia Hutchins.
From what a source tells RadarOnline, Sophia is holding Caitlyn back from attending her own son's wedding.
"Cait can go to Brody’s wedding if she really wanted to."
Caitlyn Jenner's estimated net worth is somewhere in the ballpark of $100 million dollars. She can attend just about anything at any time.
"But she can’t and won’t because of her boss Sophia."
That's a bit of hyperbole, but ... this source claims that Sophia has quickly become the center of Cait's world.
According to this source, Cait is willing ot miss a major milestone in her son's life.
"The truth is, Sophia’s Cait’s number one priority."
This really fuels the rumors that these two are closer than ever.
"And they’re inseparable."
Apparently, Cait and Sophia have a scheduling conflict with Brody.
"Brody’s wedding date and all the traveling screws up things that Cait already has planned with Sophia."
This source says that it's mostly Sophia's cold feed that are keeping them from attending.
"Sophia wasn’t up for all the wedding extravaganza and because she wasn't, neither was Cait."
They say that Caitlyn indulges her much younger gal pal at every opportunity.
"Caitlyn spoils her rotten."
Apparently the two of them share more than similar interests and a mutual love of dogs.
"Everything she wants: clothes, vacations, jewelry, all of Cait’s attention, she gets."
That may lend some credence to the rumor that Caitlyn and Sophia are planning a wedding of their own.
We should note that, though some may have doubts about whether or not this can be blamed on Sophia, Caitlyn not attending Brody's wedding is not fake news.
Cait has had a strained relationship with the children she had before marrying Kris Jenner.
Cait has been able to reconnect with some of her kids through a shared love of sports. Cait is an Olympian and she likes that sort of thing.
But since none of that interests Brody, their relationship has remained strained.
However, TMZ reports that Caitlyn did attend the bridal shower.
They also say that she does not disapprove of Brody's fiancee or of the marriage.
But she told Brody that she can't attend due to a business opportunity that she just can't pass up.
And that has left Brody feeling very hurt.
It's easy to lay the blame at Sophia's feet, but it may be that, quite simply, family and family relationships are complicated.
Sophia and Caitlyn have a lot in common and are rumored to be in a relationship, but Cait could make time to go to her son's wedding.
If she really wanted to.
Turning down an invitation or canceling plans can be stressful, but it is also a relief to not have to prepare for an awkward occassion. We totally understand that.
It's sad that Cait won't be attending Brody's wedding.
It's probably even sadder for Brody, since apparently neither Kendall nor Kylie even bothered to RSVP that they wouldn't be coming.
Family is complicated.
