Rapper LL Cool J spotted at daughter’s wedding on Long Island
It was quite the Father’s Day weekend on the North Fork for one of rap’s most beloved pioneers. New York City native and “NCIS: Los Angeles” star LL Cool J spend the past couple nights in Greenport and Southold celebrating the nuptials of his daughter, Italia Smith, who hosted a wedding reception at Sparkling Pointe winery in Southold Saturday night.
Guests at the nuptials included LL’s “All Night Long” collaborator Mary J. Blige, according to social media posts. LL Cool J is one of rap’s first crossover stars known for both his streetwise lyrics and hit rap ballads, along with his acting and his work as an entertainment host. Of course he’s also known for his impeccable style and, based on his daughter’s choice of venues, it’s safe to say taste runs in the family.
The late music executive Chris Lighty’s daughter Tiffany Lighty planned the girls trip for her bestie. The bridesmaids group got in formation with matching swim suits and yacht rides around Star Island.
Congratulations to LL and the bride. From all the emails we got this weekend it’s obvious the North Fork loved having you all around.
