Barry Manilow is a Married Man
Looks like Barry Manilow found his “Mandy.”
The singer married longtime manager Garry Kief last year in a private ceremony, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE.
“It was a surprise,” a friend of the couple says of the wedding. The nuptials was held at Manilow’s Palm Springs, California, home.
The pair haven’t sign any official paperwork, but Manilow and Kief both wear wedding bands. They “are committed to one another and have been for a very long time,” a Manilow source says. “They have a great relationship. Garry has always been there for Barry.”
News of the nuptials may come as a surprise to some Manilow fans, but the source says the “Copacabana” singer has never tried to hide his sexual orientation.
“He’s at a point now where he’s got his career and personal life in a great place and he really doesn’t care what people think,” the source says. “He’s in love and happy.”
Manilow’s rep is not commenting on the marriage. The National Enquirer was first to report the news.
