Beyonce and Jay-Z have yet to confirm their union, but reports claim the pair filed the marriage license obtained on April 1. According to Scarsdale Town Clerk Donna Conkling, the signed license was received on Friday and confirms that the couple tied the knot on April 4.

The law requires that a couple file their marriage license no more than five days after the actual wedding date, but Conkling said the license is expected to be processed with the state without any penalty.

The couple have remained silent about their nuptials while those around them spilled the beans. Mary J. Blige congratulated the newlyweds during her set at the Greensboro, North Carolina, stop of the Heart of the City tour. Pop sensation Rihanna later admitted to be "shocked" by news of the private affair. Read the full story.
