Your wedding day can be one of the biggest days of your life, which is why most people can’t wait to share the news that they’re getting married. But we didn’t find out about the big day of these celebrities until after they said, “I do.”
News of Kim Coles’ wedding in the Dominican Republic surfaced weeks after the Living Single star said, “I do” to former SWAT officer Reggie Mckiver. “I’m 53 and Reggie is 41 but I’m not a cougar,” Coles said in an interview. “It’s about the right energy. It wasn’t like I was trolling for younger men. It’s about energy. We’re ageless. Just two people on the same plane.”
Prenups between ordinary couples don’t get that exciting: “Do you get our collection of angry cat mugs or do I?” But when it comes to celebrities, there is a lot to protect, and a lot to split up. Here are 15 of the most outrageous celebrity prenups.
Excuse us, but we’ve been living under a rock. We didn’t realize that the same people we watch on our favorite shows and in our favorite movies were married to one another at some point in time. While some of these star couples are still going strong, a majority signed them papers and hit the road.
Must be awkward to run into one another at awards shows.
But life and the show must go on. Check out the stars we didn’t know were married to one another in the past and present.
Geena Davis And Jeff Goldblum
And here we thought that they just starred alongside one another in that hella creepy movie The Fly. Davis and Goldblum were actually married from 1987 to 1990.
When I first learned that Bow Wow and Erica Mena were engaged, I was shocked but also immediately assumed it was a publicity stunt. And if I’m being completely honest, I’m still not sure their love is real. But perhaps they’ve taken that next step anyway. Earlier today, on his Facebook page, the rapper and former host of “106 & Park,” posted an extensive message to his fiancé, that seemed to suggest that the couple are already husband and wife.
See what he had to say below.
Some celebrity couples call themselves a “power couple” because they’re both artists or Oscar-nominated actors, but if you ask us, a real power couple happens when celebrity royalty joins actual, crown-and-all, royalty. Here are 15 celebrities who married royalty.
Update: Someone got on the good foot and returned this marriage license to the Miami-Dade County marriage license bureau. And the information on the website has subsequently been updated. No conspiracy, someone was just sleeping on their job.
I know some of you are still in your feelings about the Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union’s relationship. And though they’ve been through some pretty public messiness, I happen to really like them together. They’re pretty cute.
But for as much as I love them as a couple, they might not actually be legally married.
Yes, they had a ceremony and Essence officiated; but in the eyes of the state of Florida they’re not legally bound.
According to the Miami Herald, the couple’s marriage license hasn’t made it to the state records office.
And their wedding was six months ago.
Also according to the Miami Dade County Marriage License Bureau, the license hasn’t been returned.
Miami-Dad county marriage license manger Roberto Reboso, naturally, that this could present a problem if they ever need to prove that they are in fact legally married.
“We know they’re married from what they said on TV; and they obtained a marriage license before the ceremony, but they still haven’t returned the license signed by the person who officiated the ceremony. So their marriage has not been recorded by the state.”
In the state of Florida, couples are asked to sign the license and bring it back to the county within 10 days to make their marriage official.
Y’all know what it is, if you can’t prove you’re married that doesn’t entitle you to any property or assets should the person die or should divorce proceedings come into play.
As a person who almost lost my scholarship freshman year because I didn’t submit paperwork, I can relate.
But in my defense, I legitimately didn’t know that was required of me. In this case, both Gabby and D. Wade have been married before. So they know the drill. This not signing and returning the marriage license could be a gross, six-month-long oversight. But I would be lying if I said I didn’t wonder if this is a way to protect themselves should the marriage turn sour and they have to end up going their separate ways.
No judgment. Get it how you live. This is just a things that make you go hmmm kind of story.
What do you think about this story? Did they just forget or do you think something else is going on here?
Valentine’s Day proposal/wedding: adorable or annoying? These stars decided it’s adorable. Here are 15 pairs of celebrities who got engaged or married on Valentine’s Day.
Salma Hayek and Henry Pinnault
The “Frida” actress and her billionaire husband love Valentine’s Day so much that they named their daughter Valentina. The two had a private ceremony on V-Day of 2009 in Paris, followed by a more high profile event for their Hollywood friends.
Say what you want about Usher Raymond’s private life–the cheating allegations, the messy divorce from his first wife Tameka Foster and the epic battle for custody of the kids–when it comes to his career, he’s on point. That’s 65 million records sold worldwide.
So Usher’s engagement to girlfriend and manager Grace Miguel, who he began dating on the heels of his divorce from Tameka in 2009, should come as no surprise. Dude is ambitious as hell. He started his career at age 11 when did you start yours?
Now he is mixing business with pleasure, which may not be a good idea. It didn’t work the first time. Tameka was actually his stylist before they wed. And he’ll probably have to chain that roving eye. Will this woman stand for him screwing not one, but two of her bridesmaids? (If it’s a lie Tameka told it) And then there’s the chance he might get bored. Mama is over 10 years his senior- other than that, this looks good!
He recently told Billboard magazine, “I have an incredible partner and manager.” She has helped me through some of the hardest times in my life and my career. She’s someone who’s been able to support and understand all of who I am. Not just as a dancer or as a performer or as a singer, but as a humanitarian and a businessman and as a person.”
And it doesn’t hurt that as an executive at Island Def Jam Records, Grace worked with everyone from Jay-Z, Kanye and Rihanna, to The Biebs. By marrying her Usher gets to lock down all her time. And speaking of that, the time he spends working won’t be a problem because as manager she gets 10 percent of everything he makes, so the more he’s out there, the better. And how cool is it that all the money and dirty laundry stays in the family? The two of them getting married is like Olivia Pope and Fitz tying the knot. This could be a match made in industry heaven!
Now there is another drawback…a 48 year-old record exec (and mom) and a pop star with custody of his two kids, may not provide us with a lot of drama. But ultimately, we wish the best to the happy couple!
What are your thoughts? Is Usher making a good career move?
If you like something why stop doing it right? We guess that’s the mindset these stars had when they walked down the aisle, two, three, seven, and even 10 times to marry folks they loved…or lusted. Check these celebrities with the most marriages in wedding history.
They might have done it to double lock in the resolutions in their marriage vows (it’s no secret famous couples can use all the help they can get), or maybe they just loved the idea of marking their new beginning at the same time as the rest of the world. Either way, here are 15 celebrity couples married on New Year’s Eve or Day.
