MANAUS, Brazil, June 3 (UPI) -- White Stripes frontman Jack White, who once dated actress Renee Zellweger, married British model Karen Elson in Brazil, his publicist has confirmed.

Zellweger married country musician Kenny Chesney in May.

The wedding news, posted on the Web site of WhiteStripes.com, said a traditional shaman priest performed the canoe-based ceremony "on the confluence of three rivers ... in the Amazon basin in the city of Manaus."

Band drummer-vocalist Meg Wife was maid of honor and White Stripes manager Ian Montone was best man at the wedding before a "small party of close friends."

Elson appeared covered in snakes in the new White Stripes video, "Blue Orchid."

There has been some speculation the wedding might be a publicity stunt, however, publicist Chloe Walsh said Thursday it was the "real deal," reported E!Online Friday.
