Reports that Britney Spears' weekend wedding to dancer Kevin Federline was a hoax have been greatly exaggerated. While it's true the couple have not yet filed a marriage license, as they are required to do within 10 days under California law, their union is still kinda-sorta valid. Spears tells People that she was legally advised to hold off filing the license until after finalizing the prenuptial agreement. "I know we're not completely legal until we file the license, which we'll do next week," she says. "But in a real sense, a spiritual sense, we're married." Rival mag US Weekly, meanwhile, claims it has a legal document signed by Spears and Federline (and authenticated by Dan Rather) proving that the nuptials were faked.
