Yesterday was Tax Day. It was also singer-songwriter Elle King’s wedding day. Though instead of showing up to the altar, the “Ex’s & Oh’s” singer showed up at Paramount Theatre in Seattle. The cancelation wasn’t due to a change of venue, or unexpected travel, oh no. It was because King called off her engagement to Andrew "Fergie" Ferguson.
“Skipped out on my wedding,” she said in an Instagram caption under a video. Instead of hiding out she hung out backstage at an Eagles Of Death Metal show, and she captured it all on video. “I married Rock&Roll... instead so I hopped on tour with... EAGLES OF FUCKING DEATH METAL,” she said.
In the shaky video, King stucks her tongue out and raised a classic hand-horn symbol to the camera. She’s clearly having a good time.
As pointed out by Us Weekly, the 27-year old hinted that she and Ferguson might have been going through a rough patch. Less than a week ago, King posted a photo in which she’s seen embracing her dog. She then wrote a lengthy caption alluding to “loyalty” problems.
She noted that her dog was her “best friend and the only true loyalty I've ever known.” With a wedding looming so near, this couldn’t have been a good sign.
On March 28 she shared another photo with a couple of friends, sitting cozily on the floor, for what looked like a girl’s hang session. “All my single ladies,” she said marking the caption with a few middle finger emoji.
The two were engaged early last year, “Fergie asked me to marry him on a sailboat under the Golden Gate Bridge. I said yes,” she said under a photo of the two.

Fergie asked me to marry him on a sailboat under the Golden Gate Bridge. I said yes.

King also appeared on TLC’s Say Yes To The Dress, ultimately choosing a lavish beaded number for nearly $5,000.
King, the daughter of comedian Rob Schneider, also noted on the reality TV show that her beloved Fergie proposed only 12 days after they met for the first time.
No official statement has been released from either party and Ferguson has yet to comment on the broken engagement.
