There will be no further comment.” The couple married at the Grammy-nominated singer‘s Palm Springs, California home in August 2014, two months after Lang revealed their engagement on Instagram in June 2014.

It wasn’t until eight months after her wedding that she confirmed her new marital status on Australian radio show Nova 69.6 in April 2015. Sia and Lang were last pictured together at the Spotify pre-Grammy party in February.
