Facebook cofounder Eduardo Saverin is set to marry Singapore-based Elaine Andriejanssen in France next month.

According to The Straits Times, the news was confirmed by a friend of the couple, who also revealed that the bride- and groom-to-be held their engagement party last month. The party took place in Bali, Indonesia, where award-winning musician John Legend took to the stage.

This news comes after a series of reports announced that Saverin would be marrying Miss Singapore Universe 2009 Rachel Kum, and that he had even invested in her makeup line Rachel K cosmetics.

One such report by Page Six was later amended, saying that the 33-year-old Brazilian-born entrepreneur had denied both the marriage and the investment. A spokesperson for Saverin also confirmed the mistake in the marriage announcement, adding that he was unable to reveal details of where the wedding would be held.

It’s not clear how the confusion came about: Saverin and 31-year-old Andriejanssen — an Indonesian Chinese currently residing in Singapore — have been engaged since March 2014:
