Amanda Knox was secretly married to beau Christopher Robinson months before asking people to donate for her wedding
Amanda Knox and Christopher Robinson are in possession of a wedding certificate dated December 1, 2018, issued in King County, in Washington.
WASHINGTON: Amanda Knox, in the last week of July, asked her followers and fans to donate to her wedding with fiancé Christopher Robinson. Now, it has been reported that she had already been married, much before she sought donations for her space-themed nuptials, the Sun reported. King County records in the US state of Washington showed that their marriage certificate was issued on December 1, 2018, in both their names. The report said they applied for a marriage license on November 21.
On their website, the couple said they wanted help to create the "best party ever" for their friends and family and would really appreciate the help. In exchange, they were promised a signed copy of their upcoming book of love poems, The Cardio Tesseract.
"Let's face it, we don't need any more stuff. So please, no gifts, and no pressure. But if you feel so inclined, we welcome help putting on the best party ever for our family and friends! Instead of a traditional registry, we're accepting donations towards the cost of the wedding, "the couple said, "Or if you have any services to offer, advice, or warm wishes, we'll take that, too." The site, which offers 18 options to donate between $25 and $10,000 describes the decor, the food and bridal hair accessories, honeymoon and photography expenses among other things. On the crowdfunding website, they further added, "We weren’t expecting to be planning a wedding and Amanda’s first-ever return trip to Italy at the same time. But we couldn’t pass up the opportunity. With scant time to plan, we had to spend our wedding funds on this important journey.”
She was initially criticized for the move, with netizens slamming her for "begging" for money to which she responded saying that they had been "duped by the outrage machine." She tweeted, "You gave ad $ to tabloids that profit by making you angry about things that don't matter. Our wedding will be crazy & fun & barebones if it needs to be, but in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter."
Knox announced her wedding on Twitter on July 20 and said they were still "figuring out our crazy costumes, sets, props, and food. Fashionistas? Prop wizards? Chefs? Got any advice? I'm all ears!"
Knox served four years in prison for the murder of her roommate, Meredith Kercher, a British exchange student in their Perugia apartment in 2007. She was later cleared of the charges.
