Rumours of Beyonce and Jay Z getting married started when the couple went to get a marriage license in Scarsdale, N.Y., on Tuesday.
A friend of the couple told People that singer Beyoncé Knowles wed her longtime boyfriend, rapper Jay-Z, on Friday.
A friend says, "It happened earlier this evening. Jay wanted it to be a really private affair – close friends and family."
The ceremony was followed by a lavish party at the rapper's Tribeca apartment that drew Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles, her father/manager Mathew, her sister Solange, her Destiny's Child mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and the couple's friend Gwyneth Paltrow.
However no official confirmation has been made regarding the wedding.
