Kelly Rowland announced back in December that she was engaged to her manager, Tim Witherspoon, after he proposed via Skype. Now, the couple have tied the knot in a secret ceremony in the midst of some heavy drama between her friends.
Rowland and Witherspoon married on Friday in Costa Rica in a small ceremony, which was what Rowland had planned all along.
“I really plan on it being a very special day between me and my sweetheart,” Rowland said in February. “Whatever we do we just want it to be special and between he and I and just make it something that we both remember and just for us. It’s our gift to ourselves.”
The intimate nuptials saw Beyonce and sister Solange were in attendance mere hours after Solange’s now-infamous fight with Jay-Z at the Met Gala, news of which hit the web earlier this week.
Rowland told Queen Latifah last year that she knew she was going to marry her best friend when he asked and wasn’t put off by the long-distance proposal.
“He asked me first on Skype,” she said, “and I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other.’ But it was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other. And he asked me, and it was just that simple to say yes. I was like, ‘I got my best friend to ride through life with.’ He really is my best friend.”
Beyonce hasn’t commented publicly on the fight, but she has been posting old photos of herself and Solange on Instagram, showing solidarity with her sister.
