So much for waiting two weeks! Although it was reported that Father Cutié and his undercover lover Ruhama Canellis would wait a few weeks to get hitched, the couple wed yesterday in a Coral Gables courthouse. Clerks at the Miami-Dade County Courts said that Cutié and Canellis picked up their marriage license and then proceeded to immediately exchange vows in front of a judge.
Rev. Leo Frade, the bishop who officially accepted Cutie and Canellis into the Episcopal Diocese after the duo were ousted from the Roman Catholic Church is expected to officiate at a religious wedding ceremony, which is still scheduled to happen in the next two weeks.
The Miami Herald was tipped off to the religious ceremony when they discovered that Canellis had hired private security guards for the event. Initially, it was believed that the guards were hired to keep Cutie's supporters and the media at bay, but NBC reports that the security may have been hired due to a bizarre lawsuit recently filed against Cutie's new wife. Maxi Ratunuman is accusing the couple of conspiring with a cop to have him thrown out of the country. Ratunuman, who was apparently living here illegally, is claiming that he was Canellis's boyfriend until Cutié came into the picture and that Capt. Antonio Sanchez falsely arrested him and he is now facing deportation because the couple wants him out of the picture.
This story seems more and more like a real-life telenovela every day!
