Why Rob Dyrdek Stepped Out of The Spotlight

Rob Dyrdek truly is a jack-of-all-trades. At the age of 16, he dropped out of high school and moved to Southern California, chasing his dream of becoming a professional skateboarder. Once he achieved that goal, it seems he still wasn’t satisfied and wanted more out of life. After starting his own skateboard company, Orion Trucks, he began to dabble in entrepreneurship and other business pursuits. However, his life changed after he scored a reality show with his best friend, “Big Black” Boykin called Rob & Big. From there, he continued to expand his brand and his presence on television, becoming one of the biggest names in the industry. However, in recent years, Dyrdek has stepped out of the limelight and is hardly mentioned anymore, check out why.

In September 2015, Dyrdek finally married his long-time girlfriend, Bryiana Noelle Flores. The couple was engaged at Disneyland Resort in April 2015 after Rob literally put on a show. While watching the Aladdin performance, Dyrdek made the excuse that he had to go to the bathroom.

He then went behind the stage and carried out a public proposal that was only fitting for his level of energy and over-the-top nature. He came out on stage riding an elephant, asking Bryiana to be his wife.
