Jason Campbell and Yenicia “Jenny” Montes held a party for 162 family members and friends at an exclusive Dominican Republican resort. Sounds like a nice gesture, although things might have gotten a bit awkward when the wedding that the guests were expecting never took place.
The Oakland Raiders quarterback and his fiancee had been planning their wedding for more than a year. But, Campbell told the Washington Post, he and Montes made the decision to “put things off” after discussing it for a couple of weeks.
It was a decision that was not shared with their guests until a party hours before the scheduled wedding. Campbell didn’t explain why they waited so long to deliver the news but said they decided to go through with the trip and “just made a vacation out of it.”
Campbell denied rumors that he left Montes at the altar -- “I love her enough to talk to her before it gets that far,” he said. And he did not give a specific reason for the decision but did refer to the collarbone injury that prematurely ended his season with the Raiders.
“It’s just the fact that I have a lot going on right now with recovering from injury,” he said. “There’s just so much going on in both our lives right now.”
He added that he doesn’t know at this point if the wedding is going to be rescheduled. “We’re not trying to force anything right now,” Campbell said. “We’re taking everything one day at all time, trying to let all the air and the dust clear.”
