This day will forever be engraved in my memory. Today is my sons first birthday, the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s assassination, and now the union of Beyonce and Jay-Z in holy matrimony. They are literally preparing for a their nuptials as I type. Can this be the moment that has been predicted over and over for more than five years? TMZ has a live timeline:
UPDATE: People magazine source says the two are married, and the lavish event was an after party. [Excerpt] Though there is no official confirmation, the friend says, “It happened earlier this evening. Jay wanted it to be a really private affair – close friends and family.”
UPDATE 6:21 PM ET: Now we’re told Jay-Z’s mom arrived with Beyonce’s mother in the same ride. Interesting.
UPDATE: 6:23 PM ET: Jay-Z’s Maybach (insanely expensive) is en route. It left from Jigga’s other apartment in Midtown. Don’t know who’s in it.
UPDATE: 6:27 PM ET: There’s a buzz they already got married (you think so?) and that what you’re looking at is the site of the reception. Just passing it along, folks.
UPDATE 6:48 PM ET: We’ve just got these snaps looking onto Jay-Z’s roof. Check out all the garbage! And who are those guys, caterers, the band, groomsmen?
UPDATE 6:57 PM ET: TMZ just shot Jay-Z’s mother Gloria Carter at the Bloomberg building (where we just saw Matthew Knowles) wearing a formal white dress. We got Beyonce’s sister Solange there too– also wearing white!
UPDATE 7:39 PM ET: Kelly Rowland has just arrived — wearing a white dress!
UPDATE 7:48 PM ET: OMG. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just arrived!
UPDATE 7:58 PM ET: Matthew Knowles — B’s dad — just drove in, wearing a silver jacket.
UPDATE 8:03 PM ET: Beyonce’s baby sis Solange just showed up.
