Hip-Hop power couple Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys have reportedly officially tied the knot and married over the weekend.
According to hip-hop personality Miss Info, Beatz and Keys are now a married couple.
The couple brought together an intimate gathering of family and friends and celebrated their new marriage and their baby on the way, aboard a 260-foot yacht on the Mediterranean Sea, near Sardinia's uber-exclusive Costa Smeralda enclave* (think St.Tropez-swag on 100-thousand-trillion, lol). Obviously because Swizz and AK aren't Italian citizens, they got officially hitched in the Tri-State area before leaving for Europe. And at that small ceremony, the bride reportedly wore Vera Wang, the groom wore Tom Ford, and, of course, the footwear was all Louboutin (Swizz's friend and collaborator*). (Miss Info)
Earlier this month, Beatz denied rumors of a marriage having taken place last weekend.
"Well its not this weekend!" Swizz Beatz says. "But you know, were excited. Our union is amazing. Our union is pure. Our union is positive no matter what people say or what people think, time will tell everything and you know, silence is the best thing. We just keep it private and we do our thing and just have fun with it." (OK Magazine)
Beatz also addressed the popularity of rumor mills being spun around their relationship.
Shooting down online reports of a lavish ceremony to be held on a yacht, the rapper says, "People are very creative [with gossip], but it's cool. We have fun with this stuff. [The rumors are that] we're taking a boat to do this and we're like, 'Man, who's paying for that?' " he jokes. (PEOPLE)
Aside from the couple expecting their first child together, Beatz is also working with his new wife in the studio.
"When we in the studio, we work on a lot of things that ain't planned," Beatz revealed in an interview. W"e was just in the studio vibing on some stuff for her album, vibing on some stuff for my album. We might use it, we might not use it. Anytime we in the studio, it's just musical genius, minds connecting on another level, which is always cool. I got a joint [that] she played on for my album with John Legend called 'I'm a Star.' It's stupid. John Legend killed the joint. The album is gonna be stupid. I got so many titles. I think I'm gonna let Twitter pick the title [of the album] for me. I'm having fun with the fans, getting them involved." (MTV)
