Kelly Rowland’s wedding day was described as a simple yet intimate one. The singer and former X-Factor judge tied the knot in Costa Rica in a quick, simple ceremony where only about 30 of the bride and groom’s closest friends and family where in attendance.
Kelly and her manager Tim Witherspoon married on May 9th, according to US Weekly. The two have been dating for quite some time, but Kelly officially announced their engagement while appearing on The Queen Latifah Show in December of 2013. In her conversation with Queen Latifah, she said they’d been dating on the d/l for a while:
It’s been a while. We’ve kept it very, very low — for years, to be completely honest.
Apparently the engagement was a simple affair as well. Witherspoon reportedly popped the question via Skype.
According toE! Online, Kelly had two very special guests at her wedding. Pals Beyonce and Solange reportedly jetted off to Costa Rica shortly after their appearance at the Met Gala where a physical altercation involving Solange and Bey’s husband Jay-Z aka Shawn Carter, occurred.
Reports found on E! Online state that drama has been brewing between Solange, Beyonce, and Jay for quite some time, although the cause behind the drama is yet to be determined. Shortly after a surveillance video leaked of an irate Solange punching and kicking a stunned Jay-z, the sisters boarded a plane for Costa Rica sans Bey’s husband.
Very little is known about the actual ceremony and no photographs are available as of yet. However, earlier in the day on May 9th, Beyonce took to her Instagram account posting a photo of herself in what appears to be bridesmaid garb with the simple message ‘good morning’ to accompany her photo.
This will be the first marriage for the former Destiny’s Child singer, who is 33 years old. She was previously engaged to football player Roy Williams in 2005 before calling it off in January 2005.
Beyonce’s mom, Tina Knowles, and Michelle Williams, Kelly’s former Destiny’s Child band mate, were also present at the ceremony, according to reports in the local newspaper known as La Nacion.
