Turkish pop star Tarkan to hold wedding reception amid pregnancy rumors
AA photoIconic Turkish pop singer Tarkan will have his wedding reception in Cologne, Germany, on May 6, after he married one of his fans, Pınar Dilek, on April 30 in the garden of his Istanbul home.
“The country’s agenda is very sad; we got married quietly. The reception will be in Cologne on May 6,” Tarkan has announced, while ruling out media claims that his spouse was expecting a baby.
“The rumors about my spouse don’t reflect the truth. She is not pregnant yet,” he added.
Tarkan will wear a white tuxedo in the reception, while Dilek will wear a different bridal dress than the one she wore in Istanbul.
The couple is considering going to the Far East for their honeymoon in June, after which Tarkan will begin a concert tour in Europe, according to media reports.
The 30-year-old Dilek was born in Germany – just like Tarkan - and media reports claim the two have been together for the past five years.
Tarkan’s debut album, “Yine Sensiz” (Without You Again), was released in 1992 and sold over 700,000 units in Turkey, according to his official website.
The World Music Award-winning Turkish pop singer has been known for the use of romantic themes in his work and has been dubbed the “Prince of Pop” by Turkish media.
