Plenty of celebrities have said “I do” in quickie Las Vegas weddings, but contrary to a recent tabloid report, Cher is not one of them.

“She’s not even in Vegas right now,” says the singer’s rep, Liz Rosenberg. In May, Cher, 62, began headlining a show at Caesar’s Palace, which alternates with Bette Midler’s Vegas concert; Cher is currently on hiatus. Adds Rosenberg, “She won’t be back in Vegas until August.”

Those close to the twice-divorced singer got a kick out of the false report, which named the groom as a 38-year-old Hell’s Angel and alleges the couple signed a $600 million pre-nup. Cher’s assistant “was laughing hysterically when I asked her,” says Rosenberg.

Calling the story “crazy,” Rosenberg quipped, “Cher promised me if she ever got married again, I could be the flower girl.”
