Was Madame Adelaide Married?

Forgive my ignorance here, but I am attempting to gather accurate information about Princess Adelaide of Orleans, sister of King Louis-Philippe and aunt of Queen Louise-Marie of the Belgians. I had heard that there was a rumor that she had been married in America and had children, but that the story was false. I was perplexed, however, to come across this wild tale, which seems to support the story with many details. I am looking into the matter further, but some versions mention no marriage, while others suggest the lady in question was actually married twice. So what is the truth? Was Madame Adelaide married at any time, anywhere, to anyone? And if so, to whom?
