Kelly Bensimon Calls Off Wedding Four Days Before Ceremony

Former ‘Real Housewives of New York’ star Kelly Bensimon has called off her wedding to fiancé Scott Litner just days before they were set to tie the knot. The couple was scheduled to marry in Boston on Saturday, with a large celebration planned later in the Hamptons.

Reason for Cancellation

Bensimon revealed that Litner’s refusal to sign a prenuptial agreement was the decisive factor in her decision. She stated, “I haven’t come this far in business and life to start making poor decisions because of a man. He of all people should have understood the need to protect each other before we tied the knot.” Calling Litner’s refusal the “ultimate red flag,” Bensimon decided to end the engagement to prioritize her daughters and protect her assets.

Personal and Emotional Impact

The cancellation came on the same day Bensimon was scheduled to pick up her wedding dresses. She expressed disappointment but emphasized that her decision was necessary. Her representative shared that she realized the need to call off the wedding late on Tuesday afternoon.

Background and Future Plans

Bensimon, who shares two daughters with her ex-husband Gilles Bensimon, had been engaged to Litner since the Fourth of July weekend last year. Despite the abrupt end to her wedding plans, Bensimon remains focused on her family and business endeavors.

This development highlights the importance of financial and personal considerations in relationships, especially when significant commitments like marriage are involved.
