Though North West recently rang in her second birthday surrounded by friends and family, Khloé Kardashian was notably absent for the celebrations. So, why did the aunt skip the big fête?

Before you jump to conclusions, it’s been reported that the reality star skipped out on the Disneyland party because she was busy mourning over friend Jamie Sangouthai. (So no, she didn’t pull a Rob Kardashian à la Kim Kardashian’s wedding.)

“Khloé was too upset over Jamie dying,” a told E! News. “She wasn’t there.”

Sangouthai, who passed away on Sunday from an apparent overdose, was also a friend to Khloé’s estranged husband, Lamar Odom. He was 37.

Soon after news broke of Sangouthai’s death, Khloé tweeted:

According to reports, Odom is “beside himself” with grief and “really shaken” over the loss of his pal.

While Khloé wasn’t at her niece’s birthday festivities, sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner were all present. Kanye West and Tyga were also in attendance.
