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 in a Los Angeles courthouse on July 8, 2013. 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 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. Their marriage came four months after the birth of their first child Sebastian Taylor Thomaz in February 2013.
"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. They were featured as the cover stars of XXL’s 2012 October/November issue.
The couple would go on to have their wedding ceremony a month later in Pennsylvania on August 18, 2013. The hip-hop couple stayed married for a year and two months until Amber found out Wiz had cheated on her with a pair of twins in September of 2014.
In the past, the couple threw some nasty jabs at one another on social media and over the airwaves, but have become cordial for the sake of their son, Sebastian. As of today, Wiz Khalifa is enjoying the single life as he prepares to drop his Rolling Papers 2 album. For her part, and Rose is continuing to ball out as an entrepreneur as she moves on from 21 Savage, whom she dated from spring 2017 to roughly spring 2018.
