Klaxons’ James Righton Engaged to Keira Knightley
Klaxons keyboardist James Righton and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actress Keira Knightley are the newest musician/actress couple to take center stage. They are engaged, according to the Daily Mail.
Knightley’s publicist, Sara Keene, says, “I can confirm that Keira is engaged to be married to James Righton.” The couple has largely stayed out of the spotlight, as the musician has not accompanied his famous bride-to-be to any public events. However, Righton and Knightley have reportedly been dating for 15 months, after being introduced by Alexa Chung.
Klaxons won the Mercury Music Prize for their 2007 album, ‘Myths of the Near Future,’ and released their sophomore set, ‘Surfing the Void,’ in 2010. As of late, they’re in the studio working on their third album with James Murphy and the Chemical Brothers lending a hand.
Knightley will be seen next month opposite Steve Carell in the film ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.’
