It wasn’t all that long ago that this foreign born former A+ list boy bander was set to marry some random underage cousin or family friend.
It had been set in stone for many years.
The boy bander got out of it by paying a lot of money to the family of the bride. Back in the day, when the same thing happened to an A list singer, it was a much more difficult process.
In the case from back in the day, our singer was female and had been promised to a cousin long before she became famous.
Until she became famous, she was kind of wandering on the fringes of being slightly famous, but primarily just here in Los Angeles.
All of you know our singer even though she hasn’t had a hit in decades.
She was never much of an actual singer.
She had a lot of help in the recording studio, but she had genuine monster big hits.
So, her prospective groom wanted a big piece of money to go away and have to find some other cousin to marry.
Our singer could have blown the cousin off, but her family would have suffered.
So, she was about to write a big check, when a past misdeed actually helped her out.
While trying get a record deal, our singer also did a little choreography on the side.
One of her employers was a B list singer/musician who came from a singing/musical family all of you know.
The thing is the singer/musician was married at the time our A+ lister was working with him and the pair ended up having a sexual relationship.
The wife of our singer/musician knew about it and for whatever reason chose to publicly talk about it right during the wedding money negotiations.
Once the cousin heard the singer was no longer a virgin and had an affair, he wanted nothing more to do with her and walked away with a fraction of the amount he asked for before.

Whoa..Jackie Jackson’s Ex-Wife Reportedly Did Major Damage To Him & Paula Abdul, But…
This alleged Jackie Jackson and Paula Abdul situation is a wild story and according to Jermaine Jackson’s former common-law wife of 7 years, it’s also a very true story.
Now we have nothing but love for Jackie and Paula Abdul, but word on the Old School curb is that our girl, Paula “Straight Up Now Tell Me” Abdul had an alleged rendezvous with Jackie Jackson back in the day and the you-know-what hit the fan big time one evening in Los Angeles. Jermaine’s ex, Margaret Maldonado, revealed exactly what went down in her tell-all book, “Jackson Family Values.”
According to Maldonado, Jackie’s wife, Enid caught him having an affair with Paula Abdul (at the time, a Laker Girl and would-be choreographer for Janet). Maldonado claims Jackie did little to keep it a secret during its long run. Well, in 1984, it came to a head when Jackie took Paula to a Drive-In theater in the LA area. Marlon’s wife, Carol, found out about it and told Enid and that’s when the heat got turned up.
She goes on to say, Enid drove to the theater and located Jackie and Paula and yanked ‘Ms. Straight Up’ out of the Range Rover by her hair and dragged her across the theater lot. Then Jackie tried to pull his wife away. He was still trying to help Paula when Enid got into her car and put it in reverse and ran into Jackie’s leg and broke it.
The broken leg kept Jackie from performing on the first half of the massive “Victory Tour.” Three years later, he and Enid divorced. Shortly afterwards, Enid had Jackie arrested for violating the terms of the divorce, by showing up to their former house together to use his home studio. If all of this is accurate, I guess it’s safe to assume that Enid didn’t play…LOL. All we kept hearing back in the day was Jackie broke his leg and would have to miss the tour because of a “car accident.” Glad to see that eventually all was forgiven among them and our beloved Enid Jackson was a beautiful soul, may she rest well. – Source
