Reynolds and Lively make bond official

Tue., Sept. 11, 2012

One of the sexiest men alive is off the market. Again.

Ryan Reynolds wed Blake Lively in Mount Pleasant, S.C., on Sunday night at Boone Hall Plantation, according to a person familiar with the ceremony who requested anonymity because that person wasn’t authorized to speak on the matter.

Representatives for the actors didn’t return requests by the Associated Press for comment.

While it is Lively’s first marriage, Reynolds was previously wed to Scarlett Johansson. Their divorce was finalized last summer after three years of marriage.

Lively and Reynolds both starred in last year’s “Green Lantern.” Lively was previously linked to her “Gossip Girl” co-star Penn Badgley and to Leonardo DiCaprio.

Minaj: Rap was no endorsement

It’s official: Nicki Minaj did not endorse Mitt Romney in a recent rap.

The flamboyant rapper confirmed Monday on Twitter that she was taking literary license when she referenced the Republican nominee for president. Some took her words to mean she was backing President Barack Obama’s opponent.

Not Obama, though, who told radio station WPYO-FM in Orlando, Fla., that he didn’t think it was a Romney plug, adding: “She likes to play different characters.”

In her tweet, Minaj thanked Obama for understanding “my creative humor and sarcasm,” then noted: “the smart ones always do … sends love & support.”

Minaj rapped the verse in question while making an appearance on the Lil Wayne mix tape track “Mercy.”
