Mariah Obtained Marriage License in Caribbean

“Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s whirlwind romance took an official turn when the singer obtained a marriage license on the Caribbean island of Eleuthera, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

According to marriage requirements for the Bahamas, a couple must be in the country for at least 48 hours, be over the age of 16 and have obtained a valid marriage license within 90 days, explains Monique Gomez, a Bahamian attorney in Nassau who specializes in family law.

The source says that Carey did obtain a license in Eleuthera within that time period. And clarifies Gomez, “The minister would make sure [the license] goes into the registry. It’s still a valid marriage even if it’s not filed. Anywhere in the world.”

The New York Post reported that the nuptials took place at Carey’s private estate off Eleuthera. Carey owns an estate on Windermere Island, which is an exclusive Bahamian island where the British royals vacation.

Though there has been no official confirmation of the wedding, Linda Cannon revealed, “He called and told us all about it.”

After dating less than two months, Carey, 39, and Cannon, 27, got hitched in an impromptu island ceremony. This wasn’t the first whirlwind courtship for Cannon, who proposed to Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks last year after just four months of dating. (The pair split last October.)

A source close to Ebanks – who received a 12-carat diamond ring from Jacob & Co jewelers, similar to the 17-carat Jacob bauble Carey is sporting – says the model “really is not affected by it. She is past that point in her life.” Ebanks’s rep says Ebanks “has no comment other than she wishes them well.”
