Bensimon released a statement and said she is taking some time for herself right now. “I have decided that my two daughters are my priority, and I won’t be moving forward with this wedding,” Kelly said when discussing her decision (via Page Six). She then asked for privacy after making this decision.

The wedding was supposed to be in Boston in Scott Litner’s mother’s backyard in front of friends and family on Saturday. The couple also planned a second big wedding in the Hamptons. Bensimon, 56, just went on a small bachelorette trip with her two daughters, Sea, 26, and Teddy, 24, in Jamaica.

Kelly moved in with Litner last year. She was previously married to fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon from 1997 to 2006.

Why Did Kelly Bensimon Call Off The Wedding?

While Kelly Bensimon originally said she wanted privacy, some reasons that might explain the canceled wedding are now revealed. According to reports, Scott Litner wouldn’t sign a prenup before the wedding, which Kelly took as a “red flag.”

Kelly said that Litner, who works as a wealth management consultant, refused to sign a prenup (via Us Weekly). ““I haven’t come this far in business and life to start making poor decisions because of a man,” Kelly said. “He, of all people, should have understood the need to protect each other before we tied the knot. I’m truly shocked he refused a prenup.”

Kelly said Litner thought they could marry without “legal protections in place.” She said he wanted to leave “everything to faith,” which she wasn’t okay with. Even though Kelly said she was excited to marry Scott, the prenup protecting her wealth ended up being more important to her than her feelings toward him. Kelly is worth $10 million.
