Usher & Tameka Foster's Wedding Canceled
Quote:


The wedding of Usher and Tameka Foster, originally planned for Saturday afternoon at record executive LA Reid's home in New York's Hamptons, has been canceled, a representative for Usher confirms to PEOPLE .

A source also says that the 70 to 100 guests who were expected at the wedding are being advised that the event will not take place as originally planned. Flower decorations have also been seen being removed from the Reid home.

In a statement to the Associated Press, publicist Patti Webster said, "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."

This was to have been the first marriage for the R&B singer and actor, 28 (real name: Usher Raymond), and the second for Foster, 37, a stylist who has worked with Lauryn Hill and Toni Braxton – as well as with Usher.

The couple, who became engaged earlier this year, first became a serious item a year and a half ago, Foster has said.

In January, the couple announced they were expecting their first child together, due the fall. Foster has three other children from a previous marriage, to Noontime Music cofounder Ryan Glover.

Webster would not comment on whether Usher and Foster are still engaged or even remain a couple.

^ I'm not too surprised. Usher has always struck me as a drama king.

It would be much more shocking if they DID get hitched.

Hm, seems like somebody got cold feet...

...anyway, cancelling a wedding is cheaper than divorcing.

They don`t seem like a good match anyway. Usher should date a hot, young model.

I'm surprised Usher is even with her. She seems to have a brain, and since Chili Usher usually dates fembots.

I knew this girl was a gold digger from the start. I guess Usher just figured that out.

Usher’s “surprise” wedding to his ten-years-older pregnant fiance, Tameka Foster, imploded in his face when the ceremony was cancelled at the last minute on Saturday.
It is unclear if the pair are still even a couple.
What went wrong????
EVERYTHING!!!
According to The New York Daily News:
- Some guests speculated Usher was furious after discovering his intended had concealed details of her past. Late last week, the National Enquirer reported that Foster was an ex-con whose drug-dealing ex-lover had been gunned down.
- Others suggested the bride, who has three children from a previous marriage, may have balked at signing a prenup.
- Still others wondered whether the long-standing enmity between Foster and Usher’s mother was to blame. In May, the singer fired his mom, Jonetta Patton, from her job as his manager, allegedly at Foster’s prompting. “Jonetta was invited to the wedding at the last minute, but she didn’t want to go,” a source told the Daily News. “She’s not a hypocrite. As much as she loves her son, she’s not going to pretend that everything’s fine,” the source said.
According to People:
- “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 tells the mag.
- Also, “They only decided two weeks ago to have a wedding. They wanted to have it take place before the baby bump started showing.”
- “The tents were up,” an insider tells People. “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.”
- Usher and Foster 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.”
According to Life & Style Weekly:
- Usher invited his previously estranged father to the ceremony, along with his godfather, Ben Vereen. Singer Robin Thicke was to perform at the affair, organized by famed wedding planner Diann Valentine and catered by Harlem chef Sylvia.
- The multimillion-dollar couple had registered with Crate & Barrel and Williams-Sonoma, asking for items such as $8 asparagus tongs and a $4,000 espresso maker. One guest called that decision “tacky.” “You’d think that he’d invite people to give to a favorite charity,” the source said. “Does he really need another toaster?”

Sources tell News Usher racing to estranged mama's side after he said nope to nups

Runaway groom Usher is headed back into his mama's arms.

A day after the last-minute cancellation of his Hamptons wedding to pregnant fiancée Tameka Foster, the Grammy winner was bound for Atlanta to make peace with his estranged mother, Jonetta Patton, sources told the Daily News.

"The reason he called off the ceremony is that he couldn't go through with it without Jonetta," said one insider. "He had an eleventh-hour epiphany."

The source said the 28-year-old multiplatinum R&B star was expected to fly home yesterday to Atlanta, where his mother lives. It wasn't known last night whether the 38-year-old Foster, who is expecting his child in the fall, would be traveling with him.

The nuptials appeared to be going full-steam ahead late last week. After some negotiation, Foster had signed a prenuptial agreement, according to people close to the singer.

"Usher conceded to some of her terms," said one source.

On Thursday night, he had his bachelor party. But, on Friday, "he started having second thoughts again," said a source. "He was obviously troubled that Jonetta wasn't coming."

For weeks, it had been unclear whether there was a wedding hall big enough to hold Patton and Foster, who've long been at odds. Last week, sources said, Foster agreed that Patton could come to the wedding - but, by then, Patton had resolved to stay in Atlanta.

"Usher woke up on Saturday and said he couldn't go through with it," said a source. "Apparently, he also couldn't bring himself to call all the people who were invited. He had the wedding planner call everyone in the wedding party."

The word also went out to stunned guests who were about to board a shuttle bus from a nearby inn to the Sagaponack estate of Island Def Jam chief Antonio (L.A.) Reid.

Foster was furious: "She was marching around, cursing," said a source.

Foster, a divorced mother of three, had at one point worked as Usher's stylist only to be forced out by his manager-mother.

Later, she won a more important place in Usher's life, as his girlfriend, and started crossing swords with several of his longtime friends and handlers.

Shortly before Mother's Day, Usher announced that Patton, who had guided him toward superstardom, would no longer be his manager. Usher denied that Foster planned to take over the role Patton once held.

This month, Usher wrote an open letter in People magazine, declaring "I am not being led" by Foster. That letter prompted AOL Black Voices columnist Jawn Murray to call upon Usher to make up with Patton, or risk alienating his fan base of women. "You only have one mother," wrote Murray, whose letter Usher is said to have read last week.

Also factoring into the crisis was a National Enquirer story alleging that Foster had served time for petty crimes and had once dated a drug dealer killed in an ambush.

The story quoted Foster's half-sister, Valencia Foster, as saying, "Poor Usher has no idea who he's marrying."

Valencia Foster also said Tameka had threatened to ban her mother from the ceremony - because she had lost her false teeth!

"Tameka told her: 'You're not coming to my wedding without teeth.'"

Usher's rep, Patti Webster, did not immediately return a request for comment.
^ WTF? I know that Usher fired his Mom/manager but I didn't know that he did it before Mother's Day!

Just Married...

After all the drama of the last minute cancellation of their wedding last weekend, they are now officially husband and wife!
Usher and his pregnant former stylist, mother of three Tameka Foster, ten years his senior got married quietly in Atlanta on Friday, according to this report in the Chicago Sun Times.
In contrast to the more lavish ceremony they had planned, the pair held their quiet I Dos at an intimate ceremony in the Atlanta offices of the singer’s lawyer.
Hopefully that means Usher’s got a good prenup. He’s probably gonna need it real soon!
Among those reportedly present at the nuptials was Usher’s mother and former manager, Jonetta Patton, who, it has been widely reported, staunchly disapproved of the marriage.
Usher and Tameka are expecting their first child together, due this fall.
They’ll be divorced by winter.
