There were already friends and guests there. “He [Jefferson] never showed up at the hotel, but ‘all his boys were there,'” a friend said. In an interview afterward, Jefferson said: “We had broken up and gotten back together so many times that I didn’t want to make this decision and then say, “Look, I’m sorry,” two days later.” In an interview, Kesha said that she and Richard would no longer be able to talk if the wedding was called off. Nichols also said, “I don’t feel bad about it. I’ll always be concerned about him. My heart is broken. As a friend, I’ll miss him.”
