Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears and Partner to Get Hitched


This spring will see a civil union between Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears and his partner of eight years — Chris, an art student at Yale who has thus far remained out of the spotlight. The two recently moved in together in an apartment in Tribeca in Manhattan. The Sunday Mirror reports that they will hold their ceremony in New Jersey in the spring followed by a lavish party in Manhattan:

“Kylie, Matt Lucas and Little Britain’s David Walliams and Geri Halliwell have been ordered to clear their diaries for a ‘glorious’ day in Springtime in New York. The ceremony itself will be in nearby New Jersey where same sex marriage is legal. I hope the guests pack their sunglasses as Jake has been talking about making it technicolour, with brightly coloured daffodils and tulips, a striped wedding suit, a flock of white doves and confetti at the beginning and end. Jake, whose band sold out three nights at Greenwich’s O2 arena last week, popped the question after splashing out on a love nest in New York with Chris.”

A source told the paper: “They are both blissfully happy with their apartment and the wedding is the next thing. They’re ready to show everyone they’re together.”
