Chris Henry 'Aggravated' by Wedding Costs

12/18/2009 9:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Just one day before he died, Chris Henry met with a rep from a North Carolina wedding planning company who claims the Cincinnati Bengals star was "annoyed" and "aggravated" at the cost of putting together his wedding.

The rep tells TMZ Chris and his fiancee Loleini Tonga came to the office on Tuesday night to discuss the pricing of a photography package. The rep claims Henry became upset when he saw the bill and "with an attitude" asked Loleini, "How much we paying for all this?"

The rep claims the two "bickered" over details -- and eventually Henry walked outside so Loleini could work out the details, fill out paperwork and fork over the deposit.

As we previously reported, Chris and Loleini had a "domestic situation" the following day which moved from a home to a moving pickup truck. Chris ultimately fell from the truck and died Thursday morning from his injuries.

Looks like he may have jumped off the truck to kill himself according to this article -

"Tonga's neighbor, Lee Hardy, was perched on a 15-foot ladder cutting back some trees when he saw the yellow pickup "zooming" up the Tongas' gravel driveway just a few yards away.

Hardy said a shirtless black man clung to the top and side of the truck while standing in the bed, begging her to stop the vehicle.

"He was banging on the top, on the doors, screaming at the lady, 'We need to talk,'" Hardy said. "He said, 'If you take off, I'm going to jump off the truck and kill myself.'"

rest in peace sweetheart! May the chaos that surrounds you and the even more chaos that is imminent keep your soul at bay and in peace. You were a fighter on the field, and obviously you were a fighter when it came to love. I truly believe that you and your fiancee were completely ready to promise forever to eachother. Thank you TMZ for the respectful presentation of the facts on this beloved man - I follow you everyday. You have done nothing but give this wonderful man a respectful send off. Thank you! As for the beloved pair - no one is perfect - every couple will fight, argue, and disagree....sometimes the outcome is good, sometimes the outcome is bad. Whether the outcome is an emotional loss or physical......there are many outcomes. We must choose our battles with wisdom. But sometimes the heart overcomes our brains, and the heart comes out strong, and a little bit of fight comes out with it. My gut is telling me that he knew his time was closing in on him. Rest in peace young soul - please be the angel you were always meant to be. Gone too soon, but you will do many awesome deeds upstairs in heaven.

Awesome TMZ, very respectable. How about posting a story about his 3 children continuously asking their mom where their Father is, or Chris Henry's Mother and Father celebrating Christmas without their son for the first time in 26 years? The more dirt you can bring up THE DAY OF A MAN's DEATH the better. Classless.

Maybe had she kept her legs closed and married this guy before giving up the goods and having 3 babies out of wedlock he probably would not have been upset about affording a a lavish baller wedding. Noooo she wanted to bankrupt the man and instead she ended up killing him. Now her children don't have a father and he more than likely didn't have a will so what assets he had will be divided between his parents and his children. Let this be a lesson to all the want to be baller wives he should put a ring on it before he sees if he likes it!

.....and the imminent chaos continues with the extremely, HIGHLY, uneducated folks that MUST speak their minds. Please, before you go to bed tonight, after you brush the teeth that belong to your strongly odorous mouth......ask yourself....can you sleep on your pillow with an honest heart??? it's sooo easy to judge with words on the internet - no one knows who you are, but, in all honesty....DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?????? Judge yourself before you judge others - even the slightest evil jab will bring an unwilling karmatic slug.....I promise :) Look for it in the coming moments of your being :)

Dotherightthing.....your "donation" to this article is quite frankly humorous and completely does not belong here. What you should immediatley do is remove yourself and find something else to consume your time. I'm sure your elbows are raw from sitting for hours in front of a computer screen whether it's a regular bunky pc or a sleek laptop, nevertheless, please pick another hobby - knit, color with crayons, or walk on over to the 7-11 and get a flippin' slurpy!!!!! shut up already! Thanks :)

Never heard of the guy before, but..... having 5 arrests, causing major problems in his career, 3 children with a woman that wasn't his wife, several witnesses to his anger problem and irratic behavior with running out of the house shirtless after a domestic dispute, jumping on a moving vehicle, pounding the windows and yelling at the driver.
And this guy was only 26 yrs old and had it all.

Tragic that his life ended .....BUT

Can't deny the Facts.

Can we say THUG??

Bored are we? Resorting to dispensing your wisdom and advice to the unwashed and uneducated masses? Do yourself and all of us a favor and save your breath. Your pseudo-intellectual verbiage is wasted on a site like this so maybe YOU should find a more productive pass time.

omg..are you serious? he got upset over a $3,000.00 photography package for his wedding...that's ridiculous! I paid a little more for my wedding package and i'm no NFL player. That's just ridiculous.
