Jason Campbell denies leaving his bride-to-be at the altar

Oakland Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell was supposed to get married to his girlfriend, Jenny Montes, on Saturday. Despite having friends and family travel to the Dominican Republic for the destination wedding, the planned nuptials never took place. The website vibevixen.com claims it's because Campbell left his fiancee at the altar.

Campbell denied the rumors to CSN Bay Area reporter Kate Longworth. He told her it's not in his character to do something of that nature. The decision not to marry, he says, was mutual.

The 162 attendees were informed of the wedding's cancellation on Saturday afternoon, according to the Washington Post. They weren't given a reason.

Robert Littal of Black Sports Online doesn't believe Campbell. His reasoning? Montes has a tattoo of Campbell's initials on her back. And since no one in the history of body art has ever made a poor decision about getting the name, initials or photo of a significant other permanently inked on their body, this must mean Campbell played the runaway groom. There's no other explanation, really.

That's not to say I don't believe the original rumor. Lord knows, I get almost all of my news from vibevixen.com. All I'm saying is that I'm willing to hold off on branding Campbell a bride-leaver until Montes appears on VH1's "Football Wives" to clarify the situation.

Campbell and Montes met in 2005. The new Washington Redskins quarterback saw the nightclub hostess dancing on the bar and they began a brief relationship. They remained friends throughout Campbell's tenure in D.C. and started dating anew when he was traded to Oakland. He proposed 11 months later, on New Year's Eve 2010.

Their wedding website was taken down Tuesday morning. It contained an ominous reverse countdown reading "three days since our wedding."
