LATEST: Beyonce Knowles and rapper SHAWN JAY ZCARTER have confirmed their marriage by filing their wedding licence in Scarsdale, New York.
The superstar couple, who began dating in 2002, was widely reported to have exchanged nuptials on 4 April (08), but neither star has yet to publicly acknowledge they are man and wife - even refusing to wear wedding rings when out in public.
However, reveal the newlyweds have now sent in their signed licence, which lists the wedding date as 4 April, to the Scarsdale Town office - albeit more than a week after the 9 April (08) deadline.
But according to Scarsdale Town Clerk Donna Conkling, the loved-up stars will not face a penalty for the late filing, as the fine is frequently waived for new couples.
