by August 09, 2012

Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki was officially married last month. On July 20, the 34 year-old forward tied the knot with Jessica Olsson, a 31-year-old Kenyan-born art gallery director. The Dallas Morning News has the details: Smith confirms today that he married the couple at Nowitzki’s Preston Hollow home July 20 at an intimate ceremony with only a handful of close friends. ‘And it was a pretty special deal,’ says Smith. When asked how he got the gig, he says, ‘I have some friends who are friends with the organization, and Dirk contacted them and said, ‘Do you think Judge Smith will do it?’ And he asked me to do it.’ Smith also confirms that at this very moment, or close to, Nowitzki and Olsson are somewhere in the Caribbean getting married at a ceremony being attended by close family. And they needed a valid marriage license for that ceremony, which is where Smith came in.”
