WEDDING FAB: NBA Baller Jason Maxiell & Brandi Duncan+Kelly Rowland Updates

Detroit Pistons baller Jason Maxiell (26) married his longtime fiance Brandi Duncan in Dallas back in August.  Brandi battled Ovarian cancer two years ago and won with Jason by her side.  He shaved his own head bald when she had to be bald herself because of the chemo.  Definitely a fab love story for the two.  And because we know you love beautiful weddings, we've got some of the pics:

They hired fab wedding planner Donnie Brown ("Whose Wedding Is It Anyway?) for their event.

And Jason's NBA baller buddies Tayshaun Prince, Amir Johnson. Richard Hamilton. Antonio McDyess, Rasheed Wallace, Maurice Evans, Jarvis Hayes, and Theo Ratliff were all there. Lots more pics under the cut... And Kelly Rowland is covering the pages of the new OK! magazine talking style and makeup:

Fab.  According to Rap-Up, she's working on her third album now and is very close to signing a new record deal with EMI Music.  It's the home to David Guetta (who she has that "When Love Takes Over" song with), Letoya Luckett, and Snoop. More pics of Kelly and the wedding when you read the rest...

Gorgeous  looks for Kel.

And more wedding pics of Jason and Brandi:

She had the NBA wives there to celebrate: Fatima Wallace, Liara McDyess, Illia Hayes, Farrah Prince, and TJ Hamilton.

Looked like a gorgeous wedding.  Congrats to the couple!

These comments just go to

These comments just go to show that you can't believe everything you read and see. Too late for Jason to be faithful. Unless it only count after the wedding. But I'm sure people can change. Maybe he's better than he used to be.

boo, you can take alll that

boo, you can take alll that and suck your teeth on it. a man partakin in some pu-nanny would have nothing to do with jumping off a bridge. anyone in the sports world would be an idiot to think that most of them are faithful (especially nba'ers)! some are, most aren't, i clearly didn't say they all do. i wished her luck cause she's gonna need it. and maybe you too with your stank ass attitude. i expressed an opinion and i guess, you as well. and mine still stands that her sheer panel/victorian bustier wedding dress is a miss. good night doll LMAO BEYONCEISBETTER!!: YOU ARE A HATER!!! Just because his friends jump off the bridge mean he will jump 2?? your sound stupid. NOT ALL MEN CHEAT(THIS INCLUDES ATHLETES) some understand the sanctity of relationships and marriage… AND YES MOST BALLERS HAVER BLACK WIVES even thou the white media wants to say other wise… THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL and CONGRATS!!! Lets get back to getting married and respecting marriage my black women!!! GOD CREATED IT FOR A REASDON!!

When I first read this story,

When I first read this story, my heart was so full of joy. It's so refreshing to see positive stories about black people, instead of the usual negative diatribe. This brother did what a good man supposed to do, and quiet as it's kept, there are more couples out there like these two. This is the picture of true love. Remember that ladies. If you are only a dime piece to your man, I would be very wary. Congrats to this beautiful couple, and I hope they have a long, strong, happy marriage.

kikimarie09: That’s why I’m

kikimarie09: That’s why I’m still waiting on the man for ME!!! It’s beautil to read about black love!! Agreed - AMEN!!!! - ladies - stories like this should let you know that you should not have to lower your standards to get or keep a man. If you want to be picky - you have the right to do so!!! There are definitely still good ones out there (black men - oh yes!!!)- I can attest to that!!! TELL THE LOSERS TO TAKE A HIKE!!!! They don't want to be there for you, cheat on you, blah, blah, blah - put the relationship on pause, send their bags back to their mama's house and they can call Tyrone to come get 'em!!!!

Whoever: No it’s not rare!

Whoever: No it’s not rare! It just happens that all black women want to see is a baller with a white girl so they can complain and run their mouth! It is fact that over 3/4 of the ballers are married and with a black woman! Co-sign

YBF - you officially stole my heart away with this post. After I read the couple of sentences about Brandi's cancer struggle, I had to close my eyes tight to stop the tears. This is truly a couple that God has made. This will last forever. Everyone wishes they could have a spouse that loves unconditionally like that. Before reading the post, i was going to make a comment about the wedding dress but this post is too great for stupid superficial comments. Thanks for sharing Natasha. P.S. Brandi looked fab with a bald head too! Go girl - you whipped that cancer's ass!!!!!!!:)

She is gorgeous. They are a beautiful couple. Kelly spread is nice. Im mad that they had to throw Beyonce name in the mix saying "you'll never guess what Beyonce told her". It must suck to be a shadow! And I thought that by now she would be known as just Kelly Rowland, but to them she is still the Former destiny's child member.
