It seems that singer Beyonce Knowles is now busy planning a cosy wedding with fiance Jay-Z, after he finally nodded to marry her. Though the couple got engaged in June 2006, the rapper was not ready to rush into marriage and was delaying the wedding vows. However, American tabloid Globe has revealed that Jay-Z seems to have changed his mind after a recent romantic trip to Paris, and has even told the former Destiny"s Child singer to look for venues for the wedding.
"There was a time when Beyonce wanted an enormous fairy-tale wedding, but now she's a masterminding a smaller party in New York," Contactmusic quoted a source, as saying. "At the moment, she considering either The Carlyle or Peninsula Hotel," the source added.
The singer has won a copyright infringement lawsuit against an unknown songwriter who had claimed the star stole her song to create her 2003 hit 'Baby Boy". Jennifer Armour claimed that she had sent her track for consideration to Mathhew Knowles, Beyonce"s father and manager in 2003.
However, a U.S. judge ruled in 2006 that there was no evidence to suggest that the former Destiny"s Child singer had copied a demo recording of the track by Armour. Armour appealed against the ruling last year but again the judge ruled in favour of Beyonce after being satisfied by evidence showing that the singer had already finished her song when Armour submitted her track.
A statement released on Jan 2, 2008 said that the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit "upheld the 2006 trial court decision dismissing a copyright infringement lawsuit brought against Beyonce". Beyonce is pleased that the whole case has finally come to an end. "It's unfortunate that we had to endure this long legal process, but I am hopeful this decision will allow all of us that were involved to finally move on," Contactmusic quoted Beyonce, as saying.
