Sandilands had in July negotiated to sell New Idea magazine the exclusive rights to cover his wedding next Friday, with the radio star believing the lucrative deal was all stitched up.
But New Idea has pulled the plug at the last minute, the Sydney Morning Herald reports, citing insiders as saying the magazine had gone cold over the lack of a celebrity-filled guest list.
Kevin Rudd and his wife, Therese Rein, and Nicole Kidman had originally been invited to add the necessary glitz for the occasion, the newspaper said.
But all three declined to attend the extravagant do — which includes nine bridesmaids for Jaber and at which the couple will be carried on thrones.
Woman's Day and OK magazine have stepped in to strike a new deal with Sandilands, but the contract is reportedly only worth half of what New Idea had originally been willing to pay.
While Australia's A-list celebrities have snubbed the chance to see Sandilands and Jaber get hitched, there could more than a few average Joes in attendance.
On its website, OK magazine is running a competition giving away 10 double passes to the wedding.

'the couple will be carried out on thrones' - WTF are they anyway??? !!! ??? Serious delusions of Grandeur. Nothing more than just wanna be's as illustrated by his record label "KING KYLE" records.
Nothing more and nothing less than gutter trash entertainment (?? !!) nobodies.
