Lleyton's sister's sorrow: Hewitt family feud
"You couldn’t help feeling frustrated for Jaslyn. She and Rob are so in love and had wanted their wedding to be a reflection of their amazing chemistry, the perfect day. And it was – except for the absence of the bride’s family."

Lleyton and Bec are the golden ones, but the tennis star’s sister Jaslyn has been left out in the cold, with her family not even turning up to see her marry the man she loves.

It should have been the happiest day of her life when Jaslyn Hewitt married her soul mate in the lush surrounds of a tropical paradise, but the celebration was tinged with sadness. The beautiful bride, 28, looked serene as she said her vows – despite her private devastation that her big brother Lleyton, and none of her immediate family, were there to share her joy.

Missing – thanks to a simmering feud over Jaslyn’s groom, Logie-nominated actor, writer and stand-up comedian Rob Shehadie, 34 – were her parents Glynn and Cherilyn Hewitt. Totally against her relationship with Rob, an extrovert who is proud of his working-class roots and Lebanese-Australian background, they made a point of shunning their only daughter’s nuptials, while Lleyton and his wife Bec also missed the ceremony due to a scheduling conflict.

“You couldn’t help feeling frustrated for Jaslyn. She and Rob are so in love and had wanted their wedding to be a reflection of their amazing chemistry, the perfect day. And it was – except for the absence of the bride’s family,” says a guest at the November 2010 ceremony in the North Queensland resort town of Port Douglas.

“Not having Glynn and Cherilyn there was crushing for Jaslyn, even though she was pretty good at hiding the fact that she was upset. “She’s a cool, understated person, so she handled the hurt by smiling all day and all the way through the reception at night, despite the difficult moments – having no mum there to help her with the last minute details, no dad to escort her down the aisle or propose a toast. “It was brave. She must have felt so alone, and that really seems unfair, because she’s always been the most supportive daughter and sister through all the years in Lleyton’s shadow.
