After six years of 'will-they-or-won't-they' public speculation, celebrity power couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony at Jay-Z's New York apartment in April 2008. The couple welcomed their first child, Blue Ivy Carter into the world on January 7, 2012. As a child, Beyoncé participated in several singing and dancing competitions and rose to fame in the late 90s as lead singer for the girl group Destiny's Child. Following her stint with Destiny's Child, Beyoncé struck out on her own, appearing in movies such as Austin Powers in Goldmember, Dreamgirls and Obsessed. Her first solo recording debut was as a feature on Jay-Z's '03 Bonnie & Clyde' in 2002. Her first solo album Dangerously in Love sold 317,000 copies in its first week and debuted on the top of the Billboard 200. Beyoncé Knowles is one of the best-selling music artists of all time. Born Shawn Corey Carter, Jay-Z is a rapper, record producer and entrepreneur. He is touted to be one of the most financially successful hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs in America, having sold more than 75 million records and receiving 17 Grammy Awards for music works, as well as numerous other nominations. In May 2014 Jay-Z was assaulted by Beyoncé's sister Solange Knowles. The attack was caught on tape in the elevator of The Standard Hotel in New York after the group had attended a Met Gala together.
