Oh dear…Hoopster Richard Jefferson has been crowned Cad of The Week after the San Antonio Spurs star caught a case of cold feet and dumped his gorgeous bride-to-be just hours before their wedding — via email!!
Too bad he forgot to notify the guests!
According to Yahoo! and AOL Sports nearly 100 people showed up in New York City last Saturday to watch Jefferson wed former New Jersey Nets dancer Kesha Ni’Cole Nichols.
He never showed up at the hotel, but “all his boys were there,” says a friend. “He gave his best friend the Black Amex [credit card] for the night.”
Jefferson’s guests made good use of the credit card to party on their pal’s dime.
Jefferson and his former fiancÃ©e had planned an elaborate wedding ceremony, expected to cost more than $2 million. The couple also planned to honeymoon in London, complete with tickets to the Michael Jackson concert.
Luckily for Kesha, Jefferson has decided to smooth things over by offering her a “six-figure” settlement…
“I’m not trying to buy her off. She has a lump sum to help her move on,” the former Nets star explained in an interview with The Chicago Sun-Times.
“There was a lot of stress and tension in the relationship. We’ve been through a lot — but we just couldn’t continue…”
