A Bahamian church minister has confirmed reports singer Mariah Carey has wed her short-time beau Nick Cannon, claiming he presided over their nuptials.
Bishop Clifford Petty, who oversees most wedding ceremonies in the Bahamas region, confirmed to U.S. publication People.com the reports were true and states he was the one who performed the union and gave a sermon.
Although Petty confirmed the ceremony took place, he has offered no further details about the couple's wedding.
The singer, 38, reportedly wed Cannon, 27, at her home in the Bahamas on Wednesday (30Apr08).
Rumours of an engagement started last month (Apr08) after the pop diva was spotted wearing a diamond and platinum ring on her wedding finger at New York's TriBeCa Film Festival.
The pair have been dating since they teamed up on a new video in March (08).
Although members of rapper/actor Cannon's family have also confirmed the spontaneous marriage, neither the couple or their publicists have spoke out about the reports.
Heartbreaker hitmaker Carey fuelled rumours she is dodging questions about the union after she scrapped an appearance on U.S. TV show The View, which was due to be filmed on Monday (05May08).
