Myth: Michael Jackson married his first wife, Lisa Marie Presley , in the Altos de Chavon church in 1994.
This story is told by tour guides as they lead tourists around Altos de Chavon.
Truth: Michael Jackson did NOT get married in the Altos de Chavon church, Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley stayed at Casa de Campo during their trip to the Dominican Republic to get married. The civil wedding ceremony actually took place in the town of La Vega (nestled in the valley of the same name in the Cibao region located in the heart of the island). The ceremony took place at the house of the acting justice of peace, Hugo Alvarez. For full details on what actually took place, click here.
