Tarik Black married his girlfriend Kennedy Raye, a model
Tarik dated model Kennedy Raye, who's a student and a model from Los Angeles, California a few years earlier.
The Los Angeles Laker forward married his partner of two years in Memphis, while both of them went there for the opening of Tarik's own foundation named Tarik Black Foundation.
The marriage was overseen by the mayor Jim Strickland and surprisingly the couple opted for a small ceremony. Few of their closest of friends were in the attendance.
The couple who laughs together stays together,
Inside the hall, only the mayor, the couple, and a handful of photographers were present. While the guests peeked through the door.
Although, people are in awe as to why the couple chose a modest ceremony. Maybe they'll throw a big reception party to their friends and family, who know!
