Britney Spears put together the final pieces to legalize her recent marriage to dancer Kevin Federline yesterday, the pop star's spokeswoman said.
"All the proper paperwork was dealt with today, filed, done. It's all legal," Spears' publicist, Leslie Sloane, said when asked whether the singer's marriage license had been filed.
Spears, 22, and Federline, 26, exchanged vows in a secret ceremony in Los Angeles last month. After the nuptials the entertainment magazine Us Weekly reported that the wedding had been a hoax and the marriage was not legal.
Spears' representatives said the couple had not yet filed a marriage license because the details of the prenuptial agreement had not been finalized.
This is the second marriage for Spears whose hits include "Oops! ... I Did It Again." In January, the pop princess married childhood friend Jason Alexander (search) in a surprise wedding in Las Vegas. That marriage was annulled 55 hours later.
Spears and Federline announced their engagement in June after dating since early this year.
Federline appeared in the movie "You Got Served" and performed as a backup dancer for singer Justin Timberlake (search), Spears' former boyfriend. He was previously involved with actress Shar Jackson of TV's "Moesha." They have two children — a 2-year-old and a newborn.
