Former Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson has tied the knot in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles. Manson, who sparked rumors that she was engaged after spotted wearing a massive sparkler on her ring finger back in 2008, revealed about the marriage during her appearance on "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" on Friday, May 28.
"I married an American, it's fantastic. He's not (a musician). I would never marry a musician," Manson confirmed. She further revealed that the nuptial was held in a courthouse registry service and she and her husband skipped a honeymoon but preferred to stay in a hotel in Los Angeles.
"It was very unromantic. We eloped and went to the L.A. courthouse and it was about as unromantic as you can get," Manson explained. "It was so unromantic it was super hot. You just turn up (to the courthouse)."
Manson, who was previously married to actor Eddie Farrell and got divorced in 2003, later said, "This is my second (marriage) which is why I decided not to do the traditional. We didn't (have a honeymoon). We went and got drunk and did a stayover, which is when you stay in your city but you go to a hotel."
Back in 2008 when asked about the sparkler on her ring finger, the singer simply responded, "It's a nice rock but I've decided not to talk about anything like that because it turns into a nightmare."
Meanwhile, Manson's father, John, also insisted he would get into trouble if he spilled the beans. "All I can say is she is very happy. The two of them have been together for a while and things are going well," John said. "They live in LA but they have been to visit and our whole family have met him."
