Ex-Miss Universe Amelia Vega to Marry NBA Star

Santo Domingo, Dec 25 (IANS/EFE): Dominican singer and former Miss Universe Amelia Vega is getting married to compatriot and NBA player Al Horford.

The ceremony was expected to be held Saturday at the home of the 26-year-old singer's uncle, award-winning Dominican singer-songwriter Juan Luis Guerra.

The marriage will be the first for the singer and the Atlanta Hawks forward-centre, who was an All-Star in the previous two NBA seasons.

In 2003, then 18-year-old Vega became the first Dominican to win the Miss Universe crown.

After passing the title on to her successor, the Dominican national living in Miami opened two exclusive clothing stores there, hosted television programmes and this year launched her first album, "Agua Dulce" (Fresh Water).

Horford, 25, has played his three NBA seasons with the Hawks, where he averaged 12 points per game.

    This marriage should not have happened. She would not get married in such conditions and with a black evil man of massoneries all busy to fight mafia against the famous peolple who get scared for doing something wrong. They turn themselves into christian devil, have sex thinking of being god and she turns into an evil woman. Bad stuff! She was my gift they have stolen. I know everything of those dirty games.
