Jefferson would have started his first season with the Spurs as a euphoric newlywed, but had a recent change of heart. Jefferson called off his wedding to Kesha Nichols on Friday, the night before the ceremony was to take place.
Nichols immediately notified her family and friends that the ceremony was off while Jefferson waited to notify his friends a few hours before showtime.
According to one of Jefferson’s friends, ” He called about two hours before the wedding. it was nuts.”
The wedding was scheduled to take place at the Mandarin Oriental in Manhattan; the estimated cost of the event, $2M.
Though the reasons for the breakup is unknown, I hope the Spurs make note of this incident and understand that any guy that is heartless enough to basically leave his bride at the alter, can’t be counted as a loyal teammate.
