MC Lyte John WycheT

Legendary rapper MC Lyte tied the knot with her fiancé John Wyche in Jamaica over the weekend. The 46-year-old DJ/actress was a practicing lesbian for most of her adult life -- until she met the man of her dreams.

The "Ruffneck" hitmaker, whose real name is Lana Moorer, wed the U.S. Marine Corp veteran at the Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort in Montego Bay, where friend and singer Kelly Price serenaded the couple during the nuptials, according to WENN.com.

"It was so beautiful and a fairytale," Lana tells Essence magazine. "I got my king."

The intimate ceremony was attended by many of the couple's old skool friends, including rappers YoYo, Niatia "Lil Mama" Kirkland, and SWV's Cheryl "Coko" Gamble.

"It's incredible so many people came out to support our union," John says. "We are starting out with a strong foundation. A few months into getting to know Lana I knew I wanted this woman as my wife."

MC Lyte and her new husband met online last year and announced they were dating in January. They became engaged in May.

Lana, who was involved a longterm relationship with actress Tichina Arnold in the 1990s, dated other women for a while, but she soon gave up on the lesbian lifestyle.

She tells Essence magazine she knew John was the right one for her after an intimate conversation.

"It was one day while we were talking and I kind of looked in his eyes and I was like, 'Oh my God, so much honesty and truth in his eyes'," she told Essence in May. "My biggest thing with dating ever was the ability to be open and I can totally just let go with him."

She also urged women to be more aware of who they are if they want to find love.

"Just being alone, being single in Los Angeles, California (opened my eyes to that)," she continued. "That is a hard thing to do for a black woman, to date and it be authentic and true. So I think when you're present and you're aware, it opens you up."

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Heterosexual couple..... YAY!

  • IAINTMADATCHA

    Hmmm...One of the first rules of marriage; don't recite in public how "wonderful" and "real" and "meant to be" your union is. Makes it harder to defend when couples eventually come back to earth.

  • Lisa daniels

    Lil mama ain't old school.. hold wait.

  • Coy little wink

    When you say you love me
    It doesn't matter ?
    It goes to my head as just chit chatter ?

  • HalleMerry

    He looks like that actor who is always playing 'Uncle' AKA Mama's child molesting a$$ boyfriend. Can't think of his name,but ya'll know who I'm talking about.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Well he must be very open-minded because Lyte STILL loves her a mouth full of cooch almost as much as she loves Popeyes Chicken!

    I'm told Lyte is trying to get a reality TV show, but I find it hard to believe that a network would care about her at all.

  • You Could Never

    Its me. I dont know why Sandra went in on the female love of my life like that.

  • HalleMerry
  • You Could Never

    Im happy for you Lyte. I still love you.

  • Renee26

  • Renee26

    LMAO

  • http://olskoolblackflix.com Insane Taco Juice

    She spoke only the truth about being single in L.A. It's no fun but when you decide to stop accepting BS, there will be time and energy to give to a real person.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Practicing lesbian LOL chile Im gonna have to use that...I guess its a phase for my friend too. She got married to a woman they going through it now but I told her to rock with it for another two years so she could qualify for alimony....

    I liked MC Lyte role as a Hit Woman in Queen of the South.

    That's all I got...

  • PrettyBrown28

    On another note...what happened to the morning wood posts? I need some new material. ?

  • http://theempirefiend.tumblr.com/ Bird

    Lyte also had a long term relationship with one of the Torrey brother's back in the 90s. I want to say it was Guy. That's the reason I never really believed she was gay. I have never seen evidence that she was dating women. Congrats to the newlyweds.

  • Karen Brady

    The headline.. "to a man". Smh auntie. But I am surprised I must admit. Love Lyte.

  • Karen Brady

    LMAOOOOOOOOOO. Nothing like a good pipe down.

    You're going to burn in the hottest part of hell for that one.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    McLyte was popular before the internet, reality tv and Instagram so even if she had been a lesbian there would not have been any advertising like the Queen.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I have heard that straight men enjoy watching two women going at it.
    I've only heard.
    Ha,ha,ha!!

    Nene looks as if she doing an ugly-cry oh that's right she's smiling.
    Bless her heart.

  • Karen Brady

    Hey you never know, I was watching Shanice Un-Sung yesterday and 3 yrs later I'm still scratching my head at why Oxygen gave her and corny azz Flex a show.

  • freelancepimp .

    Maybe if every now and again she get that itch, they get to scratch it together.

  • freelancepimp .

    Well he don't look like a Ruffneck. Maybe that's part of finally growing up.
    Here's my thing, how do you meet MCLyte online?

  • Karen Brady

    lmao at Ruffneck. Good throwback.

  • freelancepimp .

    I know right. So far the young girls reading, have your fun but don't expect much from it and know when to movie. You can't turn a man-ho into a husband either.

  • interestingconcept1

    Who..what? She was gay? or practicing?lol, I can't with Sandra terms...was this a rumor or was she out?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    A "practicing lesbian" is a full-time lesbian, as opposed to a part-time or retired lesbian.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Probably on Twitter or Facebook.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Everybody in the lesbian community knew Lyte and beady bee were shacking up in Atlanta. This was before Twitter or Facebook, when people actually communicated by word of mouth.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Lol. I have no interest in men or women pretending to be men.

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Good. Glad to see she saved herself for the right man. On her wedding night she will be like a virgin kissed for the very first time.

  • Stacey J

    See....why mix rumor in with the facts from the Essence story like they are one in the same....she didn't say anything about being gay in that Essence interview....

  • bashi

    Sandra, you next? ??

  • Jussjess25

    Awww Im so happy for her. Thank God she gave of that lesbian lifestyle !

  • Jussjess25

    I still dont understand the concept, when people dont see you have anyone they think your gay?? Like what is the connection? There are plenty os gay couples in the world.. what is the correlation. Do they assume your seacretly liviinf a gay lifestyle thats why your gay... I know plenty of happy gay couples. I seriously dont get it.

  • FallenOne

    I met her once at a party. She was incredibly down to earth approachable and loving.

  • 2telldatruth

    "Oh my God, so much honesty and truth in his eyes." Perhaps this is an accurate assessment but then again it could be that he has mastered the art of lying, like so many others. Mc Lyte really sounded vulnerable and ready to fall for just about any "man" who came along. Maybe there's a baby in the future. Hope everything works out.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    That was out of pity. Shanice and Flex had been having hard times for years--a lot longer than that UnSung episode suggested.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Flex is so unfunny.

    Shanice can still sing but nobody's listening.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    I'd slide out of bed anytime for his ugly ass

  • Peter Piper ATL

    He sure ain't cute. I've heard reality show rumors about Lyte from more than a couple of people. Oprah's name was mentioned. May not materialize.

    In any case, remember, I told you first.

    That said, I assumed if Lyte ever chose to hire a beard, she'd at least find a semi-good looking one. This man looks like a pet goat.

    And I doubt he's down for watching Lyte get it on with another broad, which I'm sure is gonna continue happening no matter what. Hopefully they bring a strap-on for John because he looks like he enjoys a fat summer sausage himself.

  • Sinny

    Keep in mind, this is pre-social media so evidence will come in the form of you being there; knowing someone closely associated to the situation and or gossip. One thing I respect is she never felt the need to confirm or deny who she was with. I would've handled it the same way. I wish her nothing but happiness. She's the cutest little thing, and she actually has talent. Before Da Brat and so many other female artist that came after; there was Lyte. A dope ass female emcee from Brooklyn.

  • Sinny

    All Money Is Legal baby! lol I miss the 90's!

  • Monti Barz

    duh she looks like a old dike herself

  • EMILY POST

    She was a full black woman in Los Angeles and was into black guys..... No more explanation needed. That is the reason why she was single for so long

  • Dee

    Sandra is a middle-aged white man already married , kids in college

  • Dee

    Lord only knows what your ugly hateful ass looks like.

  • January Jones

    Well said

  • Neva RuthLess

    Which is why black women need to continue to expand their options.

  • Noirluv45

    You're right on both accounts. Yes, a voice like Shanice's is a rarity today.

  • EMILY POST

    Yes but its bigger than just expanding option they also need to demand better imagery and more respect. Part of the options issues is because of the huge PR problem that black women have caused by your #1 stereotype creator the American Media.
    The American Media has spent a good deal of time destroying images and creating horrible and limited narratives,

  • Guess Who

    DEAD @ your entire post!

    LMAO

    You sound like you only have a 3rd grade education

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    I was in love with paper thin mc lyte!

  • Peter Piper ATL

    And I see you chose a name that reflects your intellectual prowess: "TT". Without the capitalization. Lame.

    Shut your grammatically challenged ass all the way the hell up

  • tt

    Just because MC Lyte had a prime example of a father in her life that showed her what a man is supposed to be in her life and how to treat her and she waited to find the right man at the right time as opposed to sleeping around does not mean she is a Lesbian.

  • tt

    You still sound like a 3rd grader regardless of the capitalization of my screen name.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    What an illiterate statement. You don't know what someone looks like, and yet they're ugly?

    Its not for you to know what I look like. That's a privilege you don't own. BTW, I see you don't have a pic posted so your ass is not only stupid, but you're a hypocrite too.

    But I'm a good sport. I won't show you my face, but how about I just invite you to look at my ass--and then kiss it?

  • Peter Piper ATL

    That's your fantasy. Hate to disappoint dear. Of course, I'm assuming in between lectures at NASA and teaching courses at Harvard, you still find time to bestow your presence on us here at Sandra's site.

    Chile, you are a buffoon. Every time you post, you sound retarded. Matter of fact, you give retarded a bad connotation.

    Go flush your head down a toilet sweetie.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    There you go again. I know you don't add well, and you never learned to multiply, but a damn near 50 year old woman with no kids and no trail of men who for years dressed and acted like a man equals lesbian.

    But she wouldn't want you anyway so don't worry about it.

  • tt

    P. E. will be starting soon you better hurry

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Why, are you already there?
