Update: E! News received word from Plant’s U.K.-based manager that the couple is not married. According to the manager, Plant was “being cheeky” when he made the remarks. “Robert has not married Patty Griffin. He was just referring to the fact that he’s been residing in Texas.”

Earlier this week Plant made international headlines when he told British newspaper The Independent that he “eloped” with songwriter Griffin, who is also a member of his Band of Joy.

“I eloped and ran off to Texas,” he told the paper. “So now I spend half my time there and half here.”

Griffin, 48, has had success as a songwriter and performer with hits recorded by the Dixie Chicks, Emmylou Harris, Miranda Lambert, Jessica Simpson and Kelly Clarkson.

Plant, 63, was married to Maureen Wilson for 15 years before they divorced in 1983. They have three children together.
