Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles’ wedding officially confirmed

Marriage license for the union has been filed

The marriage of superstars Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles has been officially confirmed, after a marriage licence was filed to authorities in New York.

It had been widely believed that the couple got married on April 4, although neither of them have confirmed whether the ceremony took place.

However, Donna Conkling, a clerk who works in the New York suburb Scarsdale, said that official wedding licences confirming the marriage had been received, reports BBC News.

The pair are thought to have been dating each other since 2002, although they have never publicly acknowledged their relationship.
