On February 6 of last year, Elle King, singer and Rob Schneider’s kid, announced she was getting married to her boyfriend of two weeks Andrew Ferguson. Elle and Andrew made plans to get married this April, but their wedding didn’t happen. Around the time she was supposed to get married, she claimed to have “skipped out” on her wedding. Yesterday, Elle announced on Instagram that she’s divorcing Andrew, because as it turns out, they had actually gotten secret married less than a week after they got engaged.
“We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016. It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life. This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony. My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost. He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You’ll always have my heart. You’ll always be my first husband. Please be respectful of our emotions and our space during this time. Everybody thought I lost my mind and I did. So, be kind.”
Elle doesn’t say why she and Andrew decided to get divorced, but it sounds like it’s a crappy situation for them. I would assume calling off your not-secret follow-up wedding to your secret wedding isn’t a decision one takes lightly. But I’ll be honest, I’m shocked to hear this news. Who would have thought that the marriage of a famous-ish rock-style musician to her boyfriend of a mere three weeks would have lasted longer than a year?
During her acceptance speech for Album of the Year at the Grammys last month, Adele referred to Simon Konecki, the father of her son and partner of 5 years, as her “husband.” But then backstage, she threw the car in reverse and went back to calling him her “partner.” So confusing, Well, wonder no more.
Back in August, Margot Robbie claimed she was too busy to get married to her director boyfriend of three years Tom Ackerley. Margot must have found an empty page in her day planner, because everyone’s reporting that she got married to Tom over the weekend.
Margot was seen flying into Australia last week, and many figured it was to spend Christmas with her family. But according to Australia’s Women’s Day, Margot had a whole lot more planned than decorating gingerbread dingos and gathering around the didgeridoo to sing Six White Boomers. A source told Women’s Day that Margot was getting married. Today, both Australia’s Daily Telegraph (via Daily Mail) and The Sun are saying that the source was telling the truth. Margot got married.
The Daily Telegraph claims it happened at a secret location in Byron Bay, Australia. But The Sun says it happened about four hours away from Byron Bay in Margot’s hometown of Dalby. Margot is estranged from her dad, so The Sun is saying she was walked down the aisle by her mom and two brothers. Her sister was reportedly her maid of honor.
Neither Margot nor Tom have confirmed that they did indeed make it legal this weekend.
Margot and her man Tom aren’t Brangelina famous, so it’s not like they had to get married on the hush like that. But I understand fully why she did. Margot is getting her own Harley Quinn film soon. Getting secret-married means there’s no chance Margot would receive any surprise off-registry gifts on her wedding day from “The Joker.” I’m pretty sure Macy’s won’t take back a toaster filled with spider eggs.
As the marriage of one famous couple implodes like a box of firecrackers that was set too close to the campfire, another famous couple has said “Fuck it, let’s try this marriage thing.” UsWeekly says that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are married. Not just that, they also claim they’ve been married for a while. I’m sure there’s a handful of McGosling die-hards out there who just shouted “Married to other people, right? Like, Ryan got secret married to a woman named Rachel? Right? RIGHT?!?” No, Ryan got married to the mother of his two kids, Eva Mendes.

Despite being longtime BFFs with one of the biggest relationship stunt queens in the game, Ed Sheeran keeps it a little quieter when it comes to where his ginger business has been. He never confirmed if he was ever actually doing it with a Pussycat Doll last year. He’s rarely papped with his current girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, seen above leaving a premiere with him in London last October.
So really, I guess no one should be surprised if Ed were to go and get secret married. According to The Sun, Ed might have done just that. Two days ago, a picture of Ed attending a friend’s daughter’s 5th birthday party hit the internet in which he just so happened to be showing off a ring on that finger.
Judging by the distracted look on her face, either the photographer didn’t yell “1-2-cheese” before taking that picture, or that little girl just realized that that ring was about to steal all her 5th birthday thunder. I choose to believe it was the second, because 5-year-olds are wise like that.
Ed and Cherry have been dating for a year, so it’s not crazy to think that they might have recently made it legal. Ed himself hasn’t confirmed whether he made Cherry his wife because he’s on a self-imposed social media hiatus since December.
I know a ring on that finger on that hand usually means there’s a 99.9% a person is hitched, but I’m still skeptical that he actually got married. After all, it’s a well-known fact that Taylor Swift is unable to go to a wedding and not make it AAT (All About Taylor). I mean, she made damn sure she was the star of their 1st anniversary. If the Archie to Taylor’s Betty got married, we’d have heard about it. There’s no way Ed Sheeran would have had a wedding without a professional photographer getting at least six dozen pictures of Taylor catching the bouquet (just like she practiced) while her date Tom Hiddleston smiles on the outside/screams internally from the sidelines in an I Heart TS-printed tuxedo.
It’s 2016, so the paps aren’t exactly camped out at Nicollette Sheridan’s front door. That’s truly shameful, since the current Queen of Hallmark movies deserves nothing less than round-the-clock attention. Nicollette leads a pretty private life. So private in fact that when she got married six months ago, nobody noticed. Again, shameful; the marriage of the star of A Christmas Spirit should be important.
The point is, Nicollette was married, but she doesn’t want to be married anymore. According to People, Nicollette filed for divorce from her husband of six months, Aaron Phypers, last week. Nicollette lists the date of separation as June 19, and blames “irreconcilable differences.” She has also asked the divorce court to reject Aaron’s request for spousal support in the event he ends up doing that.
Nicollette and Aaron started dating in December 2014 and got secret married a year later. This is Nicollette’s second divorce and Aaron’s…I’m not sure. That’s literally all that is known about the situation. Aaron Phypers is a mystery; according to his Twitter account, which only has three tweets and hasn’t been active in five years, he’s from Toronto. He’s also an aspiring actor who auditioned for 2011’s Conan the Barbarian. Forget Conan; Aaron should really send this tape to Mitch Hurwitz. If Arrested Development ever gets a fifth season, Aaron would be perfect to play Steve Holt’s buff older brother.
Aaron is hot in an HGTV way (I’m not the only one who sees a No Name Scott McGillivray, right?), he’s not a thirsty fame whore, he gives it 110% in auditions, and he shows up looking cute on the red carpet. Sorry, but what irreconcilable differences?
Here’s Nicollette, Aaron and her giant wedding ring at a Hallmark Channel event in January.
