While Jay-Z and Beyoncé have yet to publicly acknowledge their April 4 wedding in New York, it now appears as though they’re confirming the union, in a nonverbal, but very official, sort of way.
The couple filed a signed wedding license on Friday in Scarsdale, New York, according to a spokesperson for that village’s clerk’s office. The two are notoriously private about their relationship, but ever since they allegedly obtained the license in Scarsdale on April 1 , their marriage has been the focus of nonstop speculation.
Jay and B are said to have wed during a private ceremony at the rapper’s New York apartment. After exchanging vows, the couple — who had dated for six years before tying the knot — reportedly celebrated with a lavish party, which was attended by their families and many celebrities, including Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and wife Gwyneth Paltrow. DJ Cassidy, one of Jay’s favorites, served as the evening’s entertainment.
This news follows recent reports that Beyoncé had been spotted during her hubby’s recent gig with Mary J. Blige in Atlanta, proudly displaying an enormous rock on her left-hand ring finger.
UsMagazine.com reported last week that Beyoncé’s sister Solange “played coy” when asked about the wedding during a visit to the mag’s offices, saying, “What night are you talking about? Friday? Hmm. Friday. I really don’t [know],” and “I have no idea!” when asked if her sister likes being married.
“Family is family, and we’re all [a] very tight-knit, protective family,” she added.
