NBA star Richard Jefferson was set to marry fiancee Kesha Ni'Cole Nichols but apparently "changed his mind" less than 12 hours before their lavish wedding.
No one told the paparazzi or fans, or more importantly the guests who began showing up in Manhattan to witness the star's nuptials. Always a classy move.
Everything was going according to plan as yet another beautiful ($2 million) celebrity wedding was about to take place. But the groom had other ideas.
The New York Post says Jefferson got "cold feet" last week, then actually left Kesha Ni'Cole Nichols standing alone at the altar. Talk about a traveling violation!
Nichols, who was surprised, but not "altogether shocked," according to reports, stayed at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel were the wedding was supposed to be held anyway, upgrading herself to a suite on the 45th floor. Hey, might as well.
The new member of the San Antonio Spurs and former New Jersey Nets star was recently featured in Sports Illustrated along with the former Nets dancer:
TIME OUT! They look so happy in this picture, but runaway groom Richard Jefferson appears to have fouled out of his engagement to Kesha Ni'Cole Nichols.
