NBA star Richard Jefferson caused a quite a stir last week, calling off planned nuptials to former dancer and fiance Kesha Ni'Cole Nichols.

The pair planned an intimate but elaborate wedding at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, which was abruptly cancelled by Jefferson, followed by his prompt dumping of Nichols, reports say.

A source tells that Nichols, once a dancer for the New Jersey Nets, still had her entire family fly out and join her in mourning.

"Kesha's family came anyway...they met at the hotel, as if it was a funeral," the source tells us.

Jefferson is said to have left his American Express Black card with the hotel, to ensure his own friends were shown a good time despite the awkward--and in some cases tragic--occasion.
