Last week, James pulled out of attending the lavish nuptials in Los Carlos reportedly due to concern over the impact the media attention could have on his mental health recovery. 

The billionaire boarded his private jet in Ecuador at 2.30am and is expected to land in LAX at 6.18am – plenty of time before the newlyweds arrive in the City of Angels on Tuesday. 

While it’s not confirmed if the close friends are meeting up, Karl and Jasmine will be staying at the ritzy Beverly Hills Hotel for one night before flying to Aspen, Colorado.  

The casino mogul will be positioned perfectly to spend some time with the couple in LA before potentially flying with them to Aspen.

Karl and Jasmine are planning on having a ‘mini honeymoon’ in the area where James owns a lavish estate.
