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.

The US hypocrisy continues    

I agree with Fred Farkel - the answer to any photographer charging $3,000 for wedding snaps should indeed be a resounding NO. Men, run far, far away from Bridezillas, as the way they behave in the lead-up to the wedding is the way they will behave after it, guaranteed. You don't need a spoilt princess with an air of entitlement in your life. Nobody needs to spend the equivalent of one year's wage to have a nice wedding - the flagrant rip-off that the wedding industry perpetrates is ridiculous and needs to be exposed. I hope Ms Tonga is charged with manslaughter. Surely, charges must be pending?

So sad that whatever they fought about escalated into such an out of control situation. It's obvious that Chris lacked good decision making skills, but he was trying and everyone that knew him loved him and had nothing but wonderful things to say about him. I'm sure his fiancee is wishing that she could go back and do things differently now. They say when someone threatens suicide that you should always take them very seriously. I don't think she thought he would really jump, but unless her life was in danger and I doubt it was, she shouldn't have been driving with him clinging to the truck whether or not he threatened to kill himself.

My prayers to all of his family and friends who will probably never be able to fully enjoy another Christmas again as this time of year will probably haunt them the rest of their lives.

How sad. The man makes big bucks playing football, and then dies because he's upset at 'how much' his wedding is going to cost. I feel sorry for the girlfriend and especially the three kids who are now going to grow up without their dad.

I hope they are doing their homework in Charlotte. What does the evidence show? Something is not right here. Her fiance was in the back of the truck, why did she drive .6 miles? That is a long distance to be driving with someone in the back of the truck. What did she think would happen? Did anyone see her stop?

Chris Henry was an EXCELLENT football player and anyone who denies that, has failed themselves as a football fan. Cincinnati is sad and we will miss him. Chris turned his life around and this is a tragic loss no doubt about it.

I live about 2 miles from where this happened... Oakdale Road has a coupla curves on it that would throw ANYONE out of a truck bed. If the fiance is from around here, she's know that road well enough to know that... just sayin'...

He was probably upset and watching his money like everyone is -- why tell a story like this. I think just doing this after this young guy was trying to get his life together is classless you are right.

FACTS
1) FOR WHATEVER REASON SHE WAS LEAVING IN THE TRUCK
2) FOR SOME REASON HE JUMPED IN THE BED OF THE MOVING TRUCK
3) HE STOOD UP AND STARTED BANGING AND YELLING
4) SHE KEPT DRIVING ON A CURVY ROAD AND AT SOME POINT HE EITHER FELL AND/OR WAS THROWN OUT
5) IF SHE HAD CHASED HIM DOWN WITH THE P/U TRUCK IT WOULD CERTAINLY HAVE BEEN HER FAULT
6) WHEN YOU RUN ,JUMP,YELL, BANGING ON WINDOWS, WHILE TRYING TO STAND IN THE BACK OF A MOVING VEHICLE -THAT WAS HIS CHOICE- WHICH ENDED IN TRAGEDY.
7) I DON'T THINK IT'S FAIR TO PLACE THE BLAME ON HER BECAUSE SHE WAS TRYING TO GET AWAY SO ONE AND/OR BOTH OF THEM COULD COOL DOWN.

So sad, money or not, domestic abuse will continue to go on, whether you are a athelete, actress/actor, you name it. Money comes and goes, infidelity is an everyday act, and all knows this. She drove off, knowing what could happen.... Let him rest in peace!!!
