Richard Jefferson sets the record straight about his love life
We know this much is true: San Antonio’s newest Spur, Richard Jefferson, called off his wedding via e-mail. But he did not — as some organizations reported yesterday — call off the wedding hours before it was to happen.
Jefferson made the radio rounds today, talking to Howard Stern and Dan Patrick to assure loyal listener’s of both that he broke up with Kesha Ni’Cole Nichols after “a tense Fourth of July weekend,” according to the New York Post. Their wedding was scheduled for July 11.
Before you go feeling to terrible for Nichols, you’ll sleep easier tonight knowing that Jefferson, who told the Post Nichols is one of her best friends, is giving her a six-figure settlement.
Of the money he’s giving Nichols, Jefferson said, “I’m not trying to buy her off. She has a lump sum to help her move on.”
Unfortunately, there were also circulating rumors about Jefferson’s sexuality, prompting him to tell the paper, “I’m not gay. That could be further from the truth.”
The Big Lead has a bunch of photos of Nichols here.
