Here's something you oughta know: Canadian pop star Alanis Morissette is off the market.
A representative for the Ottawa native told The Canadian Press on Monday that Morissette has married singer and rapper Souleye, whose real name is Mario Treadway.
The couple tied the knot May 22 at their Los Angeles home, a little more than a week before her 36th birthday. It's the first marriage for both.
Morissette later confirmed the news on Facebook.
"So happy to share with you that my man Souleye and I got married," she wrote. "We're very excited to embark on this journey with each other."
Morissette was previously engaged to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds.
She also once dated "Full House" star Dave Coulier, and it's long been rumoured that the dissolution of the relationship was the inspiration behind her incendiary 1995 screed "You Oughta Know," the first single from her massively successful album, "Jagged Little Pill."
Treadway was born and raised in Massachusetts. He launched his career after winning a spot on the nautical music festival Jam Cruise in 2005, where he was bill alongside Les Claypool, Digable Planets and Michael Franti.
The unsigned 30-year-old underground rapper most recently released the seven-song compilation "Balance in Babylon" on 1320 Records in December. A percentage of proceeds were to be donated to a charity that supports American Indian reservations.
Photos of Morissette and Treadway canoodling during a shopping trip in Santa Monica, Calif., circulated through the blogosphere in November.
Morissette appeared at the red-carpet premiere of "Prince of Persia" on May 18, just days before the wedding (she performed the song's theme song, "I Remain").
Speaking to USA Today, she said she planned on writing material for another album this summer and penning a book that would be equal parts "philosophy, art, Q&A, spiritual and philosophy."
Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill" remains the highest-selling debut album worldwide, with 30 million units moved globally. Her last record, 2008's "Flavors of Entanglement," hit No. 3 on the Canadian album chart.
She's sold more than 60 million albums and has won seven Grammy Awards and 12 Junos.
Morissette has also recently pursued an acting career, with a recurring role on "Weeds" adding to a resume that also includes the star-studded Kevin Smith film "Dogma," the popular HBO series "Sex and the City" and a three-episode arc on "Nip/Tuck."
She also took the stage at the splashy closing ceremonies of the Vancouver Olympics in February for a performance of her fluttering tune "Wunderkind."
