American R&B superstar Beyonce Knowles and hip-hop mogul Jay-Z have filed a wedding license, dated April 4, signed by the person who officiated at the wedding, media reported Wednesday. The license was received by mail last Friday, said Scarsdale Clerk Donna Conkling, the town clerk of Scarsdale Village in suburban Westchester County, New York City. The celebrities and their representatives refused to talk about the details at the wedding. The "03 Bonnie & Clyde" super music couple held a lavish private party in Manhattan on April 4, with guests including Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyonce's former Destiny's Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. Beyonce, 26, and former street hustler Jay-Z, 38, born Shawn Carter, have been dating since September 2002. Beyonce rose to fame as a member of Destiny's Child but emerged as a superstar with her big-screen role as Foxxy Cleopatra in the 2002 film comedy "Austin Powers in Goldmember." In 2003, she scored a hit with her debut solo album, "Dangerously in Love," collecting five Grammys. She earned a Golden Globe nomination in 2006 for her role in the film adaptation of the Broadway hit musical "Dreamgirls." Jay-Z ran the rap label Def Jam Records as president for several years but stepped down from that post in December. He also co-owns the New Jersey Nets professional basketball team.
