Former New Jersey Nets forward Richard Jefferson called off last Saturday’s wedding to former Nets dancer Kesha Ni’Cole Nichols.  The couple was supposed to get married at the Mandarin Oriental Columbus Circle in Manhattan, New York.

Thursday morning on the Dan Patrick Show, Jefferson said that he told Nichols via e-mail last Sunday, he notified his family on Monday and she informed her family on Tuesday.

The New York Post reported that one of his friends said that he was informed two hours prior to the ceremony.  Jefferson responded on the radio show, noting that none of his friends would have spoke with reporters of the newspaper. 

Jefferson, the recently acquired San Antonio Spur, said the reason he wrote Nichols an e-mail was to communicate his thoughts in an organized manner.  They had been constantly arguing, so he decided not to get married.  In return, he gave her a six-figured amount.  He added that he was upset and not happy or relieved about their situation.

    I’ve hated Richard Jefferson for years, but this takes the cake. Dennis Rodman looks like a saint compared to him. Only reason why Richard Jefferson doesn’t get as much heat is because he doesn’t do it nowhere near as colorful as Rodman. Jefferson just acts like a normal person and then bites you harder than anyone else.
