After canceling his wedding, scheduled to take place on July 28th, Usher was married last Friday in his lawyer’s office in Atlanta, GA. The nuptials were much simpler affair than the one previously planned to take place at a music mogul’s home in New York’s exclusive Hamptons.
Friday’s ceremony took place amidst much speculation given that the couple, who is expecting a son, had to cancel their Hamptons wedding plans presumably because the singer’s mother, Jonetta Patton, was against the marriage.
People.com reports that the 28-year old singer and his new wife, stylist Tameka Foster, 37, had planned an elaborate, luxurious wedding and had already spent $10,000 on wedding invitations alone, as well as hired singer Robin Thicke to entertain their guests. Their guest list included celebs like Beyoncé and Jay Z. But alas, the extravaganza fizzled before it even got under way.
The new bride maintains they had to postpone the wedding for health reasons. Foster, who has three children from a previous marriage, is five months pregnant and reported having pregnancy-related problems which required hospitalization. “I’m fine and the baby is fine,” she said.
