Kelly Bensimon, the real estate broker and reality TV fixture, revealed on Wednesday that she made an 11th-hour decision to call off her wedding to financier Scott Litker after he balked at signing a prenuptial agreement.

“To be clear, he refused to sign a prenuptial agreement, and I refused to marry him,” the 56-year-old told People. “Full stop.”

Bensimon characterized Litker’s brush-off as the “ultimate red flag” to Us Weekly.
