NBA Star Richard Jefferson, who plays for the San Antonio Spurs, left his fiance, Kesha Ni’Cole Nichols at the altar last weekend, ruining a $500k to $2 mil (depending on the source) wedding. Think of all the wasted cake! Some wedding guests were unaware of the canceled wedding and showed up to find the groom missing. But they only showed for the open bar anyway.
Jefferson claims he sent an email to Nichols a week beforehand. Oh, an email. Was a text too intimate?
The couple met when Jefferson was a player for the New Jersey Nets, and Nichols danced for the team (on the squad, not in a bar one night). After a five year courtship, Jefferson couldn’t stand it any longer after they hung out Fourth of July weekend.
Jefferson maintains that they are still friends, and that he has given Nichols a nice nest egg, a “sorry I ruined what was supposed to be the happiest day of your life” present.
Gay rumors have startled circling, but Jefferson denies them. He gave no reason to the press for the last minute cold feet. I’m guessing that he couldn’t stand the idea of being married to a woman who has an unnecessary apostrophe in her name.
