La Toya Jackson has dismissed reports suggesting she has married her fiance and business manager, Jeffre Phillips.
Online reports suggested the couple had tied the knot in Los Angeles on Friday (06Dec13), with close friends and family, including the late King of Pop's mother, Katherine Jackson, and his eldest son, Prince, in attendance.
However, the pair has since cleared up the rumors in a joint statement, which reads, "The rumors that La Toya Jackson married her longtime business partner Jeffre Phillips are completely false. The reporting outlet should be embarrassed for their mistake and at least make an effort to find facts to back up their story before reporting."
Meanwhile, the singer-turned-reality TV star has taken to her Twitter.com blog to further set the record straight, writing, "Thank you all for your congratulations on what you thought was a marriage. It was a rumor. I'M NOT MARRIED!"
The couple met in 1999. Jackson was previously married to her former manager Jack Gordon from 1989 to 1996.
