Back in May, Crossfade reported that Alanis Morisette was pregnant by longtime boyfriend Souleye, a.k.a. ex-Boca resident Mario Treadway, a conscious-type hip-hop MC specializing in vaguely crunchy, spiritual lyrics. (Really crunchy -- dude even once worked at Whole Foods). Yesterday, People reported that the two semi-secretly got hitched at Morisette's L.A. home approximately a million Internet years ago, way back on May 22.
On a summer day in 2003, nomadic b-boy Mario Treadway embarked on a shamanistic journey -- what he calls his vision quest. It was in that mystical space that he encountered the spirit guide who bestowed the name he uses today.
"He approached me while I was in a trance state," Treadway remembers. "He covered my ears and said 'Souleye.' Then I woke up."
