Ellen Pompeo's Secret Wedding

Ellen Pompeo's Secret Wedding

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, aka Dr. Meredith Grey, and Boston-bred music exec Chris Ivery quietly got married on Friday at New York’s City Hall, according to The Boston Globe.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg even served as their witness!

The Globe says, “The couple got engaged a year ago while celebrating the actress’s birthday. Pompeo, an Everett native, repeatedly professed that she and Ivery wouldn’t go for the usual Hollywood hoopla, preferring a quiet wedding instead. And low-key it was. We’re told a city clerk performed the minutes-long ceremony with only Bloomberg, a Medford native, and First Deputy Mayor Patti Harris accompanying the couple. “They are over the moon,” Pompeo‘s spokesgal Jennifer Allen told us yesterday. The newlyweds were spotted courtside at the Knicks game Sunday night at Madison Square Garden (sitting next to John Mayer and Minka Kelly). Pompeo was back in Hollywood yesterday filming Grey’s, which is expected to shut down soon because of the writers’ strike.”

Congrats to the new happy couple!

    He’s a convicted drug dealer & fraudster. Still, it takes one to know one.

    seriously! are there still racist in this time and age?

    It’s so, SO sad, isn’t it? It never fails to amaze me how people can judge others based on the color of their skin.

  • kathy

    I don’t actually care if he’s black or not. I always think it’s awesome to see that people don’t care about the partner’s skin color.

    But I don’t like him. I mean – seriously: He was a drug dealer and fraudster and I heard he collects shoes to sell them on eBay. That’s just… weird. And he seems pretty arrogant. But who knows?
    As long as she loves him, that’s all that matters. I hope he feels the same way about her.


  • hask

    Congratulations to ellen, wish her all the best. Kathy, i dont think ellen is stupid, she was with this guy for 5 years surely people should give this lady the benefit of the doubt. Why judge her? let her be happy for christ sake.

  • mk

    This just proves she is nothing but white trash. SKANK. She married her drug dealer. What a fucking loser. At City Hall, she should have just gone to the Trailler Park.

  • anonymous

    Ew They are both FUGLY. No wonder she could not get a respectable man to marry her, she had to marry a Felon.

  • Insider

    I know for a fact Ellen is NOT a nice person. She is bitch. Her and her drug dealer Felon are trash. He is her drug dealer.

  • groundcontrol

    There you go. I was just sayong this on another thread. The quintessential New York City wedding – short dress or suit, taxi to city hall. Love the sophistication.

  • anonymous

    #4 and #5 why do you hate him?. Is it because of the color of his skin?. Do you know him personally?. Have either of you had a personal encounter with him that caused you to hate him?. If so, do tell with names and dates please.

    I think they did the right thing. They love each other, and seem to be very mature people. I love it when people have no need to impress others in order to fit into societies’ expectations. Good for them. BTW I have the same skin color as he does.

    I think it is highly pretentious when movie and tv stars have these elaborate and ostentatious weddings; and that goes for royalty too. All that pretention and in five years, the marriage is over. What a waste.

  • Julesey

    yatyayayayayya ellen!


  • t

    Congrats to her, she did it her own way like she wanted.

  • cee cee

    mercrdi i dont have to get over it and i wont ever get over, so you make me get over it. Where you over a while back,of course its her choice idiot and its ny choice not to like it, so fuck off. AND FUCK KAY WHILE YOU ARE AT IT.

  • RAUL

    EGSSSH … the guy is damn ugly, has a face of a fuckshit … black men consider it their life’s ultimate objective to marry non-blacks, they are so ashamed of their race …
    but i love leen, she’s a beauty and i wish all the best to her
