Details Behind the Usher & Tameka Foster Non-Wedding

by at . Comments

As Usher fans celebrated the fact that their man did not go through with marrying Tameka Foster, celebrity gossip outlets were left with one question: Why?!?

At issue, reportedly, were family disagreements and the event itself.

"Usher's mother [and former manager, Jonetta Patton, whom he fired in May] is against the wedding. That is one of the main obstacles," a source told People magazine, who also added: "They only decided two weeks ago to have a wedding. They wanted to have it take place before the baby bump started showing."

Right. That's always awkward. The couple could not pull it off, though - and now the canceled wedding is getting almost as much attention as the Lindsay Lohan drunk driving case.

Usher and Foster, a stylist, also "had a lot of differences about the details. For example, the bride wanted barbeque, [and] he wanted to have [renowned chef] Jean Georges cook," said the source.

As a result of the differences, the wedding "was on again off again for the past few days. [Foster] was calling it off because she wasn't getting the things that she wanted. The mother was calling it off. ... Usher was calling it off."

Heck, Kate Middleton even called it off. Just kidding.

On Saturday, only hours before the afternoon ceremony was to take place at the Southampton, N.Y., estate of music mogul L.A. Reid, Usher's publicist Patti Webster issued the following statement:

"It was announced today that the wedding ceremony for Usher Raymond IV and Tameka Foster was canceled. No additional information will be given regarding the circumstances of the cancellation, but we hope the privacy of this matter will be respected."

According to the New York Post, the 70 to 100 guests who needed to be informed there was to be no wedding included couples Beyoncé and Jay Z, as well as Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri.

"The tents were up," an insider said. "And they paid all of the people, the vendors, so that wasn't an issue. ... Hotel rooms were an issue. Janet [Jackson] was coming, but she had eight security people. Ashanti and Nelly were coming."The source added that it was a possibility that the wedding may still come off. On Saturday, however, Webster would not comment on whether Usher and Foster were still engaged or even remained a couple.

So, fans, do you think these two will make it to the altar? Or are they headed the way of Diddy and Kim Porter instead?


that ugly gold digger need 2 do her own make up(^ugly ass pic above) she need to take care of her own damm children and get a real job LEAVE USHER ALONE AND FIND SOMEBODY YOUR OWN AGE


I don't know why beyonce and jay-z were notified that the wedding wouldn't take place, because the same day the wedding was called off, I was driving to a concert to see she wouldn't have been there anyway..not after i paid 90 bucks per ticket!!!


i'm glad the wedding was called off. usher your mother only has your best interest at heart and she only wants was best for you. she senses something that you don't. taking on a family is a huge responsibility. donot allow tameka or anyone else to alienate the key people in your life. good luck to you


Its starting to look suspicious. Tameka might have some confessions of her own. Usher leave that old woman alone.


When your own mother has a problem with your woman, trust her - she's a woman she knows. Never let a woman split your family. You don't have kids and there are a lots of women with no kids just like you - find one of them to marry.


When you choose to marry someone, stack up what it is they bring to the table. She's old, ugly, already has 3 kids by her first baby daddy, made you fire your mother and frankly, just gets on my nerves. Find someone who can mesh with your family, not break it apart. Good riddance to her :o)


Usher man, whatcha doin playa? Atlanta has a lock on beautiful ladies, career women, and single mothers. Why in the world would you settle down with an old lady. She's cute as my pitbull Bella. I'd have better things to say, but I can't support Betty Crocker make-up Covergirl.


I am all for loving who you want but Usher come on the gold diggin hoochie help you come to the conclusion to fire your mother as your manager. You stars soon forget that it was mama having to break her back and sleep with men she does not won't just to get you all sorry asses a record deal. You f--K a hoochie you don't marry them. Good for you Usher..


I thought same sex marriage was illegal in California, cuz that looks like a drag queen to me. I'm glad he didn't marry that ugly ass gold digging hoochie.


I predict we'll get even more of the lolo by Monday.
