The happy couple celebrated with 300 guests at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach with three days of spectacular events over the weekend. During the lockout, which began July 1, NBA executives and players are forbidden from any contact with each other.

They got special permission from the league to attend the glitzy bash together.
