David and Katharine tied the knot in June 2019 in London. Their wedding was attended by 150 guests.

US Magazine reported that before that, the famed music producer has known the “Terrified” singer for more than a decade already.

David met Katharine when he mentored her on the fifth season of ABC’s “American Idol” in 2006, where the latter finished as a runner-up.

Another report from the magazine said that David and Katharine “were friends for years before they were spotted getting cozy in Malibu in May 2017.”

A year later, the two went public with their relationship and eventually announced their engagement.
