While there was no official word at press time whether Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have actually gotten married, People magazine reported on Friday (May 2) that Bishop Clifford Petty of the National Church of God in Governor’s Harbour in the Caribbean island of Eleuthera confirmed that he presided over their wedding. Petty provided no details except to say that he did not give a sermon.
Earlier on Friday, the magazine reported that Jacob the Jeweler, who reportedly made Carey’s ring, confirmed the wedding. The magazine also cited an unnamed source as saying that the singer obtained a marriage license in Eleuthera, although a representative at the island’s register’s office told MTV News on Friday that she has no record of a license in Carey’s or Cannon’s names. However, Monique Gomez, a Bahamian attorney in Nassau who specializes in family law. told People.com, “The minister would make sure [the license] goes into the registry. It’s still a valid marriage even if it’s not filed. Anywhere in the world.”
