"The rumors regarding an extravagant wedding are simply not true," the couple told Entertainment Tonight in a joint statement. "Last year we were married in a quiet, private, and beautiful ceremony."
This is Jackson's third marriage. In 1984, she wed singer James DeBarge when she was only 18; the marriage was annulled the following year. In 1991, she wed René Elizondo — the man whose hands cover the singer's breasts on the cover of her 1993 album janet. They managed to keep their marriage a secret until 2000, two full years after the pair separated.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
