Usher Raymond, platinum selling and Grammy award winning R&B singer gave no further details on Monday about why his wedding to pregnant finance Tameka Foster was canceled over the weekend - just hours before the couple was due to tie the knot.

Usher's representative released a statement on Saturday saying that the wedding, which was due to take place in the Hamptons in New York, had been called off.

"No additional information will be given regarding the circumstances of the cancellation," said the statement.

Usher, whose hit songs include 2004's "Yeah," and Foster, a wardrobe stylist, announced their engagement last March and later it was revealed that Foster was pregnant with their first child. Foster, a divorcee, has three other children.

Usher, 28, began his career as a teenager and he has soared in popularity, winning five Grammy awards.

He also moved from singing into acting. In 2005, he starred in a feature film called "In the Mix" and in 2006 he starred in the musical 'Chicago' on Broadway.
