In what looked to be a pretty low-key affair, Madonna‘s estranged brother, Christopher Ciccone, got married to Ray Thacker yesterday in a civil ceremony in Beverly Hills. A creative powerhouse, Christopher has been a back-up dancer for Madonna, helped her stage early tours, directed her videos and decorated her many houses over the years. He is now an artist. We have many friends in common and we are Facebook friends, not actual friends, so I occasionally see his updates. His married status was a bit of a surprise today. On the pic below of the two about to tie the knot, someone commented,
“Where Madonna at?“
To which Chris shot back,
“She’s the guy in the background“
As far as I can tell, his new husband is a Brit and a bit younger. Christopher just posted the pic below of their father’s Golden Wedding Anniversary just last month (he remarried after their mother died at a young age.)
We wish Christopher and Ray a long and happy marriage!
