Toronto, June 8 (IANS) Canadian singer-cum-song writer Alanis Morissette, whose 'Thank U, India' in 1998 hit top ratings and was nominated for a Grammy, has married American singer and rapper M.C. Souleye.
The 36-year-old pop diva tied the knot with 30-year-old Souleye, whose real name is Mario Treadway, May 22 in Los Angeles, the Canadian Press quoted a representative for Morissette as saying Monday.
The winner of seven Grammy awards, Morissette was previously engaged to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds of Full House fame, but they split in 2007.
The couple have been dating since October last year. It will be the first marriage for both Morissette and Souleye who comes from Massachusetts.
'So happy to share with you that my man Souleye and I got married... .we're very excited to embark on this journey with each other,'' said Morissette on Facebook.
Ottawa-born Morissette, who released two albums 'Alanis' and 'Now is the Time' even before she graduated from high school in 1993 and later tried her luck in Toronto, made it big when she moved to Los Angeles and released her internationally hit album 'Jagged Little Pill.'
In India, she was made famous by her single 'Thank U' India in which she appeared naked in its video. She had said at the time that she was inspired to write this song - included in her fourth album 'Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie' - after her visit to India in 1997.
A former drug junkie herself, she admitted that she smoke pot in teen years.
Morissette, who has sold more than 60 million albums globally so far, holds dual citizenship of the US and Canada and lives in Los Angeles.
