Elle King was secretly married this whole time

Story highlights

  • The singer and her beau married three weeks after they met
  • Fans believed her wedding was to be in April 2017

(CNN)Singer Elle King came clean on Monday and said she's been secretly married for over a year and that the union has now come to an end.

The "Ex's and Oh's" singer has revealed in an Instagram post that she married beau Andrew Ferguson three weeks after they met in February 2016.
King also said in the caption that the photo was shot on Monday, which she noted was one month after their scheduled wedding ceremony, an event she apparently bailed on last month to attend a concert.
    "My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost," King said. "He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves."
    She also asked that everyone be respectful of her and Ferguson as they navigate their break up.
    Fans believed that the pair were set to marry in April 2017. King even appeared on an episode of the TLC reality series "Say Yes To The Dress" in March.
    King, who is the daughter of former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Rob Schneider and model London King, told the story on the show of how she met Ferguson, who's Scottish.
    "We met in London in the lobby of my hotel, and it was like we had known each other for 10 years," King said. "We hung out all night, it was my last day in London, and he was like, 'You can't go home.'"
    King said she didn't get on her flight and two days later Ferguson quit his job and moved to the US to be with her.
    Ferguson proposed 12 days later, she said.
    Last month she posted a video on social media saying she had skipped her wedding to go to an Eagles of Death Metal concert in Seattle instead.
