If you didn’t know already, USHER AND TAMEKA CANCELED THE WEDDING, which was supposed to take place this past Saturday at L.A. Reid’s mansion in the Hamptons. Well apparently last week was not such a good week for the odd couple.
“Usher’s mother is against the wedding. That is one of the main obstacles,” a source revealed to the press, who also said of the bride, 37, and groom, 28: “They only decided two weeks ago to have a wedding. They wanted to have it take place before the baby bump started showing.”
Obviously Ursh changed his mind and told Tameka “it ain’t happenin homegirl.” – Okay he really didn’t say that, but it was probably something of that nature LOL.
“Usher and Tameka 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 snitch. 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.”
Just a few hours before the afternoon ceremony was to take place at the Southampton, N.Y., estate of Def Jam music executive L.A. Reid on Saturday, 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.”
It is believed the 70 to 100 guests, including powerhouse couples Janet Jackson & Jermaine Dupri and Beyonce & Jay-Z, were told just hours before the big event not to bother showing up. As you could tell in the AERIAL PHOTO that we posted, the whole shinding was set up and ready to go! Refrigerated trucks had already delivered the food and just hours before the “big announcement” decorators were putting the finishing touches to the reception tent. Everybody still got paid though! But I wonder what happened to all that food, and I wonder if the decorators will have to be paid extra if they decide to get married again. Hmm…
