As I wrote yesterday, I had no idea who NBA star Richard Jefferson was until my readers emailed me to say he left his gold digging fiance at the alter.

According to online reports, Jefferson is easing his ex-fiance’s pain by giving her a six-figure pay-off. I think he did the right thing since money is apparently what she was after from the start.

In an interview, Jefferson said, “There was a lot of stress and tension in the relationship. We’ve been through a lot — but we just couldn’t continue.”

That’s code for she wouldn’t sign the pre-nup.

Say what you will about Jefferson being gay, but what sense would it make for a down low brother to spend $2 million on a wedding just to cancel it the day before? Wouldn’t he go ahead with the wedding as a cover — and to shut his critics up?

It sounds more like Jefferson realized Kesha Ni’Cole Nichols was a gold digger. Especially if what he said about them constantly bickering is true. Who wants to marry a golddigging nag?
