W.K. and Lily married in 2008. She had worked as a hype-woman with his band since 2006. The pair said their "I do's" at Santos Party House, a nightclub in Chinatown that the rocker co-owned. The wedding was said to be a traditional Persian ceremony. It was reported by GQ in 2014 that W.K. has children of his own, but chooses to keep them out of the public eye to respect their privacy. It is unclear if he shares the children with Lily or if they are from a separate relationship.

Dennings has always kept her dating life very private but, prior to her relationship with W.K., she dated singer Josh Groban for two years. The pair reportedly officially began dating in 2014 and ended things in 2016.


Now that Dennings and W.K. have found love and romance with one another, many of their friends and followers are showering them with support. Supermodel Tess Holliday commented on Dennings' post, "Can't wait to be a bridesmaid." Atreyu vocalist Brandon Saller congratulated W.K., joking, "[You're] like heavy metal Dracula. It rips. Congrats on the [nuptials]."
