American pop diva Mariah Carey has married rapper-actor Nick Cannon in a secret ceremony after a whirlwind two-month romance, U.S. media reports said Friday.

The 39-year-old music superstar, who is riding high with a new chart-topping album "E=MC2," tied the knot for the second time in the Bahamas earlier this week, several celebrity news outlets reported.

Representatives for Carey and Cannon, 27, have not commented on the reports, which came after the singer was seen wearing a diamond ring at the premiere of her latest film "Tennessee" in New York last weekend.

However E! Online quoted a member of Cannon's family as saying that reports of a wedding were true.

"He called us and told us all about it. We are happy for him. If that is what he wants then we are happy for him," Linda Cannon told E!.

Meanwhile, People magazine reported on its website on Friday that Carey had obtained a marriage license on the island of Eleuthera. A New York Post report said Carey had wed at her estate off Eleuthera.

Carey has sold around 160 million albums worldwide during a nearly two-decade long recording career.

Earlier this month she dethroned Elvis Presley after passing the King of Rock 'n' Roll's total number of U.S. chart-toppers with her 18th No.1 hit. Only The Beatles, with 20 No.1's, have scored more.

Carey, who was previously married to record label executive Tommy Mottola from 1993 to 1998, is the third best-selling female artist of all time according to the Recording Industry Association of America.
