Today In Hip-Hop: Wiz Khalifa Marries Amber Rose

On this day, July 8, in hip-hop…


2013: Wiz Khalifa took Amber Rose to be his lawfully wedded wife a year ago on this day at a Los Angeles courthouse. The rapper confirmed that they had indeed tied the knot by announcing it on Twitter, informing fans that they would have a ceremony in the fall.

The marriage would come four months after the birth of their first child Sebastian Taylor Thomaz in February.

The couple got engaged in March of 2012 only a year after they began dating in 2011. Before carrying out their secret nuptials, Wiz expressed their plans to wed under the radar in an interview with Hot 97.

“We’re gonna get, like, licensed marriage. In a couple weeks, we’ll have that done,” he said, further explaining that they would celebrate after Amber gave birth.

“When you have the ceremony, that’s when you can invite the family. She can fit into a dress. … If we have a daughter one day, she might wanna give the dress to our daughter, but if she’s pregnant then she can’t do that.”

The couple would go on to have their wedding ceremony a month later in Pennsylvania on August 18. -Chris Garner
