Nine months ago, Game was so excited about popping the question to his longtime girlfriend Tiffney Cambridge that the L.A. rapper staged an elaborate surprise at the elementary school where she worked. The two were set to wed on July 28, with a reality TV series reportedly based around the nuptials, but this week the couple called off the engagement suddenly.
This week, without further details, a message was posted on the couple's wedding website saying the ceremony was off. "We regret to inform you that the wedding of Tiffney Cambridge & Jayceon Taylor has been cancelled," the brief post read.
Then, on Thursday (July 19), Game took to Twitter to explain what had transpired. "The rumors are TRUE. The wedding is OFF," he wrote. "It's not her fault, it's mine! She's a GREAT woman, I just wasn't man enough 2 see it through. Important message to all men: If you're lucky to have 1/2 of the woman I had... Appreciate her & do everything necessary to keep her happy ! I am truly sorry & apologetic to my family, friends & EVERYONE that this has affected & inconvenienced. Not everyone has a happy ending."
Game recently told Sister 2 Sister magazine that he'd thrown down approximately $500,000 on the event, but a source close to the couple reports that they "just didn't get along."
Back in October, MTV News was on site when Game proposed to Cambridge at Frank D. Parent Elementary School in Inglewood, California. "As a man, this is that day where you throw your player card away and you kinda gotta step up and be a family man, and she deserves it," Game told MTV News following the proposal. "It's been a long run, and we've been together at least seven years. We've been off, we've been on, we've been arguing, we fought. We had good times and bad times, and I think that at the end of the day, as a man, this is something that I owed to her and I owed to my family, so it was time."
"The planning was all quick, last minute," he added. "I woke up today with a different headspace, and I just started planning this at 10 a.m., and we pulled it off by 2 [p.m.]. Four hours to pull all these media outlets, get the school in line, the principal, the bishop from the church to come down. The sun came out, obviously [I'm] sweating here, crazy."
