Mark Wahlberg has finally broken his silence after skipping out on brother Donnie Wahlberg's wedding to Jenny McCarthy on Aug. 30. Was his reason for missing out good enough?
When it was revealed that Mark Wahlberg, 43, would be skipping out on his brother Donnie Wahlberg's wedding to Jenny McCarthy, many assumed that it was a confirmation that he didn't approve of his brother's other half. On the day of the wedding, Mark finally broke his silence. Find out what he said!
Jenny and Donnie married on Aug. 30, and Mark expressed his congratulations later that day with the following tweet:
- Mark Wahlberg (@mark_wahlberg) August 30, 2014
To which Donnie replied:
- Donnie Wahlberg (@DonnieWahlberg) August 30, 2014
Jenny has yet to tweet back herself as of the morning of Aug. 31, though she hasn't tweeted much of anything.
Mark also expressed his congratulations to Jenny and Donnie via an adorable video which he posted to Facebook and Instagram:
In it, the whole family is gathered, with his four children (Ella Rae, 10, Michael Robert, 8, Brendan
Joseph, 5, and Grace Margaret, 4) screaming congratulations at the camera.
It's pretty cute, but it's also kind of a funny way to congratulate your brother on his marriage - shouldn't it be a more private affair? Did he send any private messages? Is this his way of proving that there are no hard feelings for Jenny?
Or, is this just how famous families communicate with each other in 2014?
As TMZ initially reported, the Wahlbergs aren't huge fans of Jenny; the outlet also claims that Mark's wife, Rhea Durham, is annoyed with Jenny over a recent interview with Howard Stern in which she talks about her relationship with Mark and her sex life with Donnie.
Mark's reps told TMZ that the Transformers actor didn't attend the wedding in favor of celebrating Ella Rae's birthday early since he'll be filming on her actual birthday on Sept. 2.
While the tweet and video is a pretty public statement about a lack of bad blood, what do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are the Wahlbergs not fond of Jenny, or did scheduling really keep Mark away? Let us know.
