The Web sites of celebrity magazines People and Us Weekly reported the couple married and threw a lavish but small party at the apartment Friday, citing unnamed sources who are friends with the pair. The Web sites reported their families attended the party.
Rumors circulated all week about the event after a report that the couple had taken out a marriage license in Scarsdale, New York. Representatives for Beyonce and Jay-Z declined to comment on reports ahead of the event. Jay-Z's publicist had no comment Saturday.
The couple, who have apparently been dating for six years, have never publicly acknowledged they are together. Beyonce, 26, and Jay-Z, 38, whose real name is Shawn Carter, have collaborated on the songs "03 Bonnie and Clyde" and "Crazy In Love."
