Mere weeks after finding themselves on the wrong side of the law for a domestic altercation, WNBA players Brittney Griner and Glory Johnson tied the knot during a small wedding ceremony in Phoenix, Arizona, CNN reports.
The ceremony, which took place at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort on Friday, May 8, consisted of approximately 75 guests. According to People, the couple’s first dance was to Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.”
Days after the nuptials, Griner took to Instagram with a celebratory message, which reads:
I don’t care if the world was ending at this moment! Nothing could [have] kept me from my wife. I think I cried the whole day until I saw her walking down that isle. Then in [an] instant I was calm and full of love and all the tears turned into huge smiles and a joy that no one can explain unless you have found and married your soulmate. I love you so much my beautiful Wife.
As previously reported, the couple was arrested following a physical altercation in April. A relative of Johnson called 911 after house guests of the pair were unsuccessful in their attempts to pry the fighting women apart. Days after the violent incident, the duo confirmed that the wedding was still on while apologizing for their actions and vowing to “do better.”
According to the New York Post, charges against Griner will be dismissed per a diversion agreement that she entered into in municipal court, which will require her to complete 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling.
Nearly two years ago, we were so tickled to see Tina Knowles attend Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation’s Angel Ball with a date. The lucky guy turned out to be actor Richard Lawson, Ms. Tina’s boyfriend, and as time went on, we were too thrilled to see that the lovebirds were still going strong. And apparently, things have been going so well between the two that they decided to make things more permanent.
According to TMZ, Knowles, 61, and Lawson, 67, tied the knot during an all-white wedding celebration Sunday in Newport Beach, California. Attendees included Beyoncé, Solange, Jay Z, Alan Ferguson, Blue Ivy, Julez and a host of relatives and friends. The ceremony took place aboard a gorgeous yacht called “Eternity.” Lawson and Knowles have been dating publicly since 2013. It was the second marriage for the both of them.
As for their love story, Tina and Richard have known each other for over thirty years. His sister was actually one of Tina’s best friends, but they did not become romantic until Tina divorced Mathew.
“I’m in a committed relationship with that handsome man!” Tina gushed last October. “And I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long, long time.”
This is amazing news considering what Ms. Tina has been through with her ex. We’re wishing these newlyweds all the best!

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.
Looks like Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon might have pulled the wool over all of our eyes two years ago. While the two were on camera telling the world that they got married, Bobby Brown…or Bobby Brown’s lawyer, says that’s just not true.
TMZ reports that according to Bobby’s attorney, “Bobbi Kristina is not and has never been married to Nick Gordon.”
And the Houston family agrees. The two never officially wed.
Furthermore, sources from the Houston family confirmed that there are no legal documents that would entitle Gordon to Bobbi Kristina’s inheritance from her mother, Whitney Houston.
You may remember that when the media told Bobby Brown that his daughter was married he was visibly shocked and said he didn’t believe it was true.
Turns out, he was absolutely right.
It is interesting that there was never a ceremony. And then back in 2013, there was this odd video of the two of them–primarily Nick– speaking very non descriptively about their actual wedding date and future plans. He kept directing the cameraman to the ring on Bobbi Kris’ finger.
Interesting…and probably for the best.
As for a health update, TMZ has learned that Bobbi Kristina has been moved to Emory University Hospital, in Atlanta, Georgia, to receive the best neurological treatment available in the area.
But apparently, the move was not met without contention. Apparently, the Houston and Brown families are arguing about who will have access to part of the hospital where Bobbi Kristina is receiving treatment.
One source said, “The Houston family is sick of the Brown family acting up, as they always do.”
We’re hoping this is not true, simply because this type of energy is just not conducive to the overall healing process for anyone involved.
We’re still praying for the best outcome for Bobbi Kristina. And hoping that the two families are maintaining their amicability during this time.
“He’s The One That Tamed Me”: Eve Explains How Her Husband, Maximillion Cooper, Changed Her For The Better
Just this past June, rapper Eve married British entrepreneur and millionaire, Maximillion Cooper, in Ibiza. The two had been dating since 2010, and in that time, Eve, born Eve Jihan Jeffers, became close with Cooper’s kids and fell head-over-heels in love with him. Six months since tying the knot, the newlywed, who says she did change her name to Eve Cooper (it’s still just ‘Eve’ for business though), is spilling the tea about married life. While promoting her new Lifetime movie, With This Ring (which premieres on Saturday, January 24), Eve talked about how married life has changed her, what she loves about Maximillion…and one thing she would change about him.
In a chat with Meredith Vieira, Eve said that she likes the fact that Maximillion has brought her a sense of calm and a lot of happiness. And it helps that he’s also a cutie.
“He’s cute [laughs]. He’s really cute. We just have fun together. He’s the one that tamed me. He enjoys my crazy sometimes so it’s good. It’s a really good relationship, so I’m happy.”
But she does admit that the only thing about him that she isn’t that fond of is his dancing skills. Her hubby just can’t seem to keep up rhythmically.
“My poor baby. I don’t let him dance. It’s really bad. It’s honestly so bad that I thought he was joking. I was like, ‘Oh that’s cute! You’re like dancing…you know.’ And then he did it again and did it again, I was like, ‘You know what? You shouldn’t dance.’ He’s cute so it really messes his whole thing up. So I’m like, you know what? You stand still and I’ll dance around you.'”
But what Maximillion lacks on the dance floor, he makes up for big time in his support for Eve. The rapper, who has always been pretty independent, told CocoaFab that he is teaching her to stress a lot less.
“Being married has changed me in a lot of different ways. It’s funny because I’m a really fiercely independent person and I always have been. Being married, you have to relinquish some of that.
Not in a bad way but in the way that you need to sit back and trust your partner to be able help you with things. Sometimes my husband has to say to me, ‘Chill. You’re my wife now. I can take the ball from here. Don’t even stress.’
When you have been doing things for years and my life has been about me for so many years, it’s a weird thing. I have to remember that I have a partner now. I don’t have to stress myself on everything. I don’t have to do everything by myself anymore which is nice.”
Love these two and it’s great to see ‘Mrs. Cooper’ so happy. Check out her chat on The Meredith Vieira show below:
Normally when you read about a celebrity wedding, there’s plenty of details on the bride, her gown and the famous people in attendance but not too much time and attention is given to who the groom chose to stand by his side. Here’s a look at some of the interesting choices for these celebrities’ best man.
Kevin Hart is hot on the promo trail for his latest movie “The Wedding Ringer,” where he rents out his services as a best man to grooms in need of an extra body in their wedding party. The pint-sized comedian is planning on tying the knot to his girlfriend of five years Eniko this summer and he revealed who he’s planning on having by his side when it’s time to say, “I do.” “”My son,” Hart said to HipHollywood. “He’s seven years old and his name is Hendrix.”
Ladies, I know there is a lot of internal and external pressure to be married and have kids, all before your 30th birthday. But that’s not everybody’s story. And frankly, there is plenty of life and love after 30 years old. If you don’t believe me, you need look no further than Shirley Strawberry.
Strawberry, the relationship expert and co-host on Steve Harvey’s popular morning show is well past 30, and married Ernesto Williams, 50, on Friday.
The couple got engaged last summer when Ernesto proposed to Shirley live on the radio.
In case you couldn’t really tell from the video, Ernesto is a very nice looking man. He and Shirley just so happened to get married on his birthday, January 10; and before they tied the knot, Shirley posted this picture in tribute to him, where we can fully see what he’s got going on.
Williams is an entrepreneur, whose businesses have been featured in The New York Times and other publications. Williams has been a barber for over 20 years and has managed to create some pretty lucrative business platforms as a result, including “The 24 Hour Barber Shop.”
Shirley did very well for herself.
So now that we know what Shirley’s working with, check out the pictures and videos from the wedding.
It seemed like it was just a few days ago that we were breaking the news that rapper Ludacris and his longtime girlfriend Eudoxie were engaged to be married. And that’s because it was just a few days ago.
Now, the couple are back in the news after having already tied the knot. That’s right. According to a source for TMZ, the couple got engaged on Christmas Eve, Ludacris took her out to dinner and when they got back home, there was a wedding dress, that Ludacris’ mom had picked out, draped over the furniture. And the two got married on the spot.
As you know Ludacris, Eudoxie and several friends spent the days after Christmas in Costa Rica…But that’s where the source says they took their honeymoon. Which would mean they were already married by the time Luda posted that “she said yes” engagement photo.
So, either Ludacris was pulling the wool over our eyes with that “milehighproposal” bit or this source is making stuff up. I’d bet on the latter.
But what does it really matter? They’re married now!
Isn’t this a surprise?! And a pleasant one at that. Not that Ludacris or Eudoxie need my approval, but I’m here for this. What’s the sense of a long engagement when you know that you know that you know you’ve found the right one. These two probably realized that ages ago. And in the words of Jagged Edge, “We ain’t gettin’ no younger we might as well do this.”
Check out some of the images the couple posted below and on the following pages.
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.
[Photos] Relationship Coach Tionna Smalls Ties The Knot: “From Friends For Life To Husband And Wife”
It looks like Memphis Bleek wasn’t the only one getting hitched this weekend. Relationship coach and reality star Tionna Smalls also took the big leap.
On Saturday, December 13, the outspoken New York native married her longtime fiancé, Casper. The intimate ceremony took place in East New York, Brooklyn at New Jerusalem Holy Church. Attendees of the quaint ceremony included relatives and close friends of the couple.
Casper first proposed to his new bride four years ago, but unfortunately, they broke up before they could make it done the aisle. However, as Tionna expressed on Instagram after the wedding, “When it’s meant to be, it will happen!”
Congrats to the newlyweds!
