Beliebers might want to sit down for this one. JUSTIN BIEBER is of­fi­cially – and legally – off the mar­ket. Af­ter weeks of spec­u­la­tion it’s be­ing re­ported that the Friends hit-maker and HAILEY BALD­WIN tied the knot on 13 Septem­ber – the day they were spot­ted ap­ply­ing for a mar­riage li­cence in New York. Ac­cord­ing to an in­sider, Justin’s friend Josh Mehl was a wit­ness at their in­ti­mate wed­ding cer­e­mony, which was of­fi­ci­ated by preacher Jef­frey Quinn.

But the news ev­ery­body seems to care about even more than their se­cret wed­ding is that Justin – whose worth a cool $256 mil­lion (R4,2 bil­lion) – didn’t bother sign­ing a prenup­tial agree­ment. Ac­cord­ing to US news out­let TMZ, Justin (24) and Hailey (21) both reached out to lawyers for a prenup but were in such a rush to get hitched that they couldn’t wait for the le­gal doc­u­ments to be drafted.

But it’s not too late for the Biebs and Hailey – who through lu­cra­tive mod­el­ling con­tracts has amassed a net worth of $2 mil­lion (R33 mil­lion) – to pro­tect their re­spec­tive for­tunes. They can still sign a post­nup­tial agree­ment, which does the same thing as a prenup, and re­port­edly Justin’s team is likely work­ing on it. “They didn’t tell any­one on their teams what was go­ing on and his peo­ple have been fran­ti­cally try­ing to get his busi­ness af­fairs and fi­nances in or­der,” says an in­sider. A source tells Peo­ple magazine the whole thing was a sur­prise even to their near­est and dear­est. “They went ahead and did it without lis­ten­ing to any­one,” the source claims.

But al­though the cou­ple, who are deeply re­li­gious, rushed to make things le­gal, they still think a church cer­e­mony is nec­es­sary to make the mar­riage mean- in­g­ful in the eyes of God, which is when the mar­riage will be­come of­fi­cial.

Ac­cord­ing to an in­sider, Hailey wants a “wooded wed­ding with lights strung ev­ery­where,” in early 2019 in On­tario, Canada, or New York.

And al­though the nup­tials will be an in­ti­mate fam­ily af­fair one lucky per­son may have the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend. Hailey’s un­cle, Dirty Sexy Money star WIL­LIAM BALD­WIN (55), re­cently told TMZ he wants to host a raf­fle, where the win­ner will be his date to the wed­ding. “How much money could I raise for a kick ass char­ity? If I sold $20 raf­fle tick­ets, I’d make $20 mil­lion dol­lars world­wide with all their fans.” SOURCES: TMZ.COM, VANITYFAIR.COM, THESUN.CO.UK, PEO­PLE.COM
