La Toya Jackson’s best friend Jeffre Phillips proposed to her on her reality show, Life With La Toya, and on Friday the two officially tied the knot. Longtime friends and business partners, the two exchanged vows in front of a small group of very close friends and family members.

Katherine Jackson, La Toya’s mom, and Prince Jackson, son of the late Michael Jackson, were in attendance for the nuptials.

La Toya reportedly sought a boyfriend as part of her reality show a while back, but friends say that was fake. It was simply hype to insert some excitement into the show. Jeffre reportedly knew all about the plan, and went along with the scheme in order to help boost the show’s ratings. La Toya and Phillips have purportedly been an item for a while now.

Twitter was abuzz with La Toya Jackson’s wedding news.

Hopefully this marriage is a far cry better than La Toya Jackson’s previous marriage. She and Jack Gordon, her former manager, were married in the late 1980s. Said to be a horrific marriage, Gordon supposedly abused and controlled her for about seven years.

Congratulations to both La Toya Jackson and Jeffre Phillips on their marriage. May they enjoy many years together.
