The singer has been very private about her ceremony plans, but word is that she’s now ready to make it happen after years of engagement and waiting for the trial to end.

“Jennifer feels she can now close the door on that terrible chapter in her life and start again by planning a wedding-and that her late mother would approve,” the tipster told the National Enquirer.

The source added, “She said she couldn’t have a celebration like a wedding until there was a conclusion to the murder trial, so she put it off. Her fiancé, David Otunga, was supportive and agreed with her completely.”
