Michael Snoddy looks more like a punk rocker than a pizza delivery guy—in fact, he’s both.

But now unnamed sources in media reports say the lovebirds have quietly gotten married, and this pizza dude is getting pies delivered to him in the L.A. mansion where Jackson created hits like “Beat It” and “Billie Jean.”

This is no Jackson jive.
