Jay-Z & Beyonce Knowles Married!

Just days after reports that Jay-Z & Beyonce had acquired a marriage license, they now have acquired the marriage itself. People magazine reported that Jay-Z & Beyonce Knowles wed after a lavish party at Jay-Z's Tribeca loft. The hip hop couple had 60 days to use their marriage license, but it didn't take long at all. It was a very private, intimate affair and guests included family such as Beyonce's sister Solange and her parents. Also present were Destiny's Child pals Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and the couple's friend Gwyneth Paltrow. See People Magazine's report.

People became suspicious of the wedding when they saw flower arrangements and a tent delivered to Jay-Z's apartment. At first the speculation was that it was all being done to celebrate Jay-Z finalizing a multi-million dollar deal with concert promoter Live Nation.
Perez Hilton's weblog had reported the address for the wedding and the following behind the scenes info:

"-BEYONCÉ's dressing room is set up in gym with a vanity and flowers
-There are secret service everywhere inside…they swept the place
-Fridge stocked with JAY-Z's favorite champagne
-There was a platform - maybe for the ceremony
-Tables were set for about 30, so the event will be intimate" (Source:

While the marriage is a done deal, Jay's deal with Live Nation isn't done, yet. It's nearing completion and is said to be a $150 million dollar deal. This would rival some of the biggest music contracts signed in the biz. The deal would mean Jay leaves Def Jam and then is locked in to a nice package including the financing of Jay's own entertainment venture. It would also include future recordings and tours over the next 10 years by Jay-Z. Jay's startup would be called "Roc Nation", an umbrella company for Jay's albums, production, talent consulting and management. All profits would be split 50/50 between Jigga and Live Nation. Just 5 months ago, Live Nation inked a $120 deal with pop superstar Madonna. Read more at AOL news.
