Blame it on a bad rumor because La Toya Jackson and her fiancé and business manager, Jeffre Phillips did not get married.

Contrary to reports by, who states mother Katherine Jackson and nephew Prince, 16, were in attendance, the couple released the below joint statement:

“The rumors that La Toya Jackson married her longtime business partner Jeffre Phillips are completely false. The reporting outlet should be embarrassed for their mistake and at least make an effort to find facts to back up their story before reporting.”

La Toya also took her messaging to Twitter writing, “Thank you all for your congratulations on what you thought was a marriage. It was a rumor. I'm Not Married!”

The couple met in 1999. Jackson was previously married to her former manager Jack Gordon from 1989 to 1996.
