Rosie Perez tied the knot with her artist boyfriend Eric Hayes, she confirmed to HipHollywood.com. The impulsive wedding took place in Las Vegas on Sunday morning and was prompted by — of course — a bet. Perez reportedly told her longtime love she would agree to get married if Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat Canelo Alvarez in Saturday night's much-hyped fight.
Mayweather won and the Do the Right Thing actress stayed true to her word. "Eric is the greatest and I'm so in love," Perez says, confirming that the newlyweds will host a formal reception in New York soon.
Perez, 49, has stayed infamously tight-lipped about her love life over the years, though she was romantically linked to The Wire actor Ramon Rodriguez. She was previously married to filmmaker and playwright Seth Zvi Rosenfeld but the couple divorced in 2001.
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
