Obama confirms he won't attend Chelsea's wedding

Thursday July 29, 2010

Pictured out and about in New York, Chelsea Clinton has been making last minute preparations for her big day.

But there's one famous face who won't be attending the society wedding of the year on Saturday.

Putting rumours to rest, Barack Obama announced on US TV programme The View, “I was not invited to the wedding.”

The Clintons would like to make sure that Chelsea and soon-to-be husband Marc Mezvinsky are the stars of the day, he explained.

Guests can also breathe easier given the extra security that would be required were the president to attend.

"All the secret service, guests going through metal detectors, all the gifts being torn apart." explained Mr Obama.

He later joked on air, "Sorry, ya'll probably will not be getting invited to Sasha’s wedding or Malia’s wedding, either.”
