Jackson told the bizarre story of leaving his fiancée after she refused to sign the prenuptial agreement.
Jackson is keenly conscious of his social standing. He is an NBA player who has achieved a great deal of fame and riches.
Signing a prenup was neither personal nor egotistical. He only wanted to defend what he’d worked so hard for.
“I look after a lot of folks.” I’ll never allow one lady to dictate all of my hard work in my life.
None of these m*****f***** were with me in the gym.
So I told myself that anybody I married would sign a prenup right away. “There’s no second-guessing,” Jackson told WE THE CULTURE TV.
“I hand it on to her. She shouldn’t be startled when I hand it to her because we sat together and agreed on the prenup. We both agreed.
Pay attention, everyone. “We agreed on the prenup,” Jackson stated again.
Jackson took her word for it and began organizing the wedding.
The former NBA champion estimated that he spent roughly $400,000 on the big day.
As they were planning, Jackson noted that the woman had not yet signed the prenup agreement.
He didn’t make a big deal about it, claiming his feelings for the woman.
But everything immediately fell apart on the wedding day.
Jackson noted that the woman had an uneasy feeling about the pastor.
He was unconcerned about who would preside. All he desired was to marry the love of his life.
“I was born in the middle of the night, but not last night.”
However, his fiance’s animosity against the preacher was the least of his worries that day.
It was Jackson’s fiancee who refused to sign the prenup.
“Once we get to that room,” Jackson added, “that’s when I truly turn up, and this is why Stephon Marbury and Mike Bibby are my brothers, like my real brothers.”
We were in the rear room when the preacher and his assistant entered, and my nanny entered with a scared expression on her face.
She pulls me to the side and says, ‘She still hasn’t signed it.’ So I say, ‘I ain’t getting married then.’
Steph says, ‘She hasn’t signed the prenup, what are we even here for?’ ’”
Though Jackson’s choice was quick, the pain he felt lingered for the rest of his life.
After canceling the wedding, tears began to flood his eyes; he had never imagined experiencing such treachery.
“This is when she showed her true colors. So wedding off. Wedding’s off. We’re not doing it.
We’re getting undressed. When we first get back to the room, I break down crying. Honest to God’s truth, I was hurt. I wanted to marry her, bruh.
I break down crying for like twenty-thirty minutes. I’m hard down crying.
I didn’t think a woman would take me to this point over a piece of paper. And we
The narrative did not stop with Jackson walking out of the venue, wiping his tears away; the woman wanted to chat with him, possibly to further discuss the situation, and Jackson accepted after coaxing the woman’s companions.
“Everyone in the room was like, f*ck that. I’m like, ‘Aight, I’ll go talk to her.’ I walk in, she’s still in her wedding gown, and she starts crying. ‘I’ll sign it. I’ll sign it.’
WE THE CULTURE TV, Stephen Jackson
The woman, like any other woman about to marry, must have been overcome by the jitters, which ultimately prevented her from seeing the logic behind the prenuptial agreement.
But this wasn’t a fairy tale or any type of fiction.
Jackson knew that the woman’s fresh intent of inking the prenup was already stained by pressure and stress.
“Listen, I was born at night, but not last night,” she says, “said Stephen.
“Anytime anybody signs anything where they’re crying, under any type of stress, that shit can get thrown out.
I was already told that by my parents, so I was already on the game.
So the sh*t she tried, thinking I was going to buckle so it could get thrown out.
No sweetheart. You chose your decision. Claim under distress, that’s what it’s called.

“That sh*t was classic,” Jackson said.
