He however noted that his mother-in-law to be would be working on that day, making the date impossible.
He explained below why he might be moving the wedding from Valentine’s Day.
He said, “The reason why we had to change the date is because Tanasha’s mother will be working on Valentine’s Day. I do not want a small wedding, if it is possible I would like the government to consider it a public holiday,” .
In December of 2018, Diamond revealed his intentions of wedding Tanasha but is now considering postponement as most celebrities reportedly invited to the event might be unavailable, as well as family members.
