Russell Westbrook and Nina Earl tied the knot during a fairytale wedding ceremony in Beverly Hills, People reports.

The guest list for the ceremony, which took place at the Beverly Hills Hotel, consisted of family friends, and celebrity guests Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Serge Ibaka, Dorrell Wright and James Harden, Khloé Kardashian and Keri Hilson.

Earl wore two dresses during the celebration–one by Vera Wang, the other by Monique Lhullier. The groom wore a tuxedo by Tom Ford. Their first dance was to Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo’s “Nothing Even Matters.” Interestingly, Earl quoted the same ballad when she announced her engagement to Westbrook last summer.

The couple met while attending UCLA—both played basketball at the University. The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard asked for Earl’s hand in marriage last September when he presented her with a $700,000 ring from Jason of Beverly Hills.


Photobombed with love!

Over the weekend, relatives and friends of Fantasia Barrino gathered aboard a swanky yacht to celebrate the singer’s recent marriage to new husband, Kendall Taylor.

The nautical wedding ceremony took on a black, white, red and silver theme. Sunday evening, the 31-year-old gushed to Instagram followers about finally meeting the one.

Those who really know me know that I LOVE Water.. Can you see it? How Happy I am.. This Man.. God made him just for Me and me Just For Him.. This Man.. Covers and prays for me and my children EVERY morning.. This Man.. Loves My Father in Heaven and his name is God.. This Man allows me to just be a woman..

Barrino and Taylor first went public with their relationship last fall. Judging by the “Lose To Win” singer’s Instagram account, which has served as a bit of an online diary in recent months, she and her new husband have been through their share of ups and downs. However, it’s beautiful to see that they were able to overcome whatever obstacles they were facing.

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.”

“We’s Married Now”: Kim Coles And Reggie McKiver Tie The Knot

On June 17, Kim Coles, 53, and Reggie McKiver, 41, tied the knot during an intimate wedding ceremony in the Dominican Republic. Shortly after the ceremony, the “Living Single” actress excitedly announced the news on Facebook:

On Wednesday 6/17/2015, two best friends got married! We will have official pictures soon, but take this as our own announcement that “We’s Married Now!” We would like to send our love and thanks to those in attendance and REMIND you to keep everything hush-hush until we say so! Please respect our privacy, photos & announcements until further notice! ‪#‎happykimandreggie‬

The couple met after Mckiver was assigned as Coles’ security escort at a natural hair expo.

“[My heart] was open just enough for Reggie to come through, and I’m so glad he did,” the newlywed told People. “I’m 53, and Reggie is 41 but I’m not a cougar. I can’t run that fast. I’m a meerkat or a prairie dog. 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.”

The couple engaged in a long distance relationship before Mckiver finally asked for his love’s hand in marriage during a dinner outing at The Olive Garden. Interestingly, he proposed without a ring. He later presented his new fiancée with mother’s old engagement ring.

“I didn’t have a stitch of makeup on!” she reflected.

She later announced the upcoming nuptials during a comedy gig.

“Me with my big mouth announced I was getting married! People asked where and I was like, you cant come, it’s a private wedding. We had to move the wedding from one beach to a whole other beach, but all the people from the tour showed up — 45 people in their bathing suits and towels — but they were very respectful.”

Back in March, Coles announced her engagement on Facebook. Congrats to this beauty and her new husband!


I’se Married Now: Vanessa Williams And Jim Skrip Tie The Knot

Vanessa Williams will certainly remember this Independence Day for years to come.

According to People, Williams, 52, and her fiancé, Jim Skrip, quietly exchanged vows Saturday in front of family and friends.

The actress first confirmed her engagement back in September during an appearance on “The Queen Latifah Show.”

“I got engaged,” the beauty gushed to Latifah. “I have had a lot of good things happen … I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago. It has been a lot of blessings.”

In April, we were able to catch up with Williams, who gave us the scoop on her new beau and their unlikely first encounter on an Egypt-bound boat.

“I was on vacation with my daughter going to Egypt, cruising on the Nile. I wasn’t looking for anything,” said Williams, who had been divorced for ten years when her path crossed Skrip’s. “I found a hometown guy from my mom’s town in Buffalo, New York and started a conversation.”

The “Royal Pains” actress was also sure to encourage women in their 50s who still hope to find love.

“There’s always hope. You never know what you’ll find and where you’ll find it,” she said. “Don’t ever lose hope. I’m 52, and now I’ve got a new beginning. It happens when you’re not looking for it! Just trust and believe.”

This is Williams’ third marriage. She has four children from her previous marriages to actor Rick Foxx and Ramon Hervey II.

Theoretically, most people are only looking to have one wedding day, so it’s easy to understand why so many have elaborate, over-the-top ceremonies to exchange vows. But these celebrities almost broke the bank when they said “I do.”

Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris

Mendeecees Harris is looking at possible prison time when he faces sentencing for drug trafficking in August. However, that didn’t stop him or Yandy Smith (but most likely VH1) from spending over $500,000 for their nuptials when they said “I do” live on VH1 last month. The flowers for the ceremony alone were $90,000. They dropped another $12,500 for blinged-out selfie sticks, $5,700 for the cake, $69,000 for the two wedding gowns Smith had to choose from, and more than $20,000 on shoes and dresses for the bridesmaids. Yandy’s wedding ring cost $30,000 while Mendeecees’ ring cost a more modest $12,000.

Brittney Griner Weds Glory Johnson Weeks After Domestic Violence Arrest

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.

Congratulations Miss Tina & Richard Lawson! 🎉🎊

A photo posted by Beyoncé (@beylite) on

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!

Check out photos of Richard & Tina throughout their courtship on the following pages.

Wait, What? Nick Gordon And Bobbi Kristina Never Got Married

Nick Gordon And Bobbi Kristina Never Got Married

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.
