Barry Manilow marries Garry Kief – I had no idea he was gay!

Barry Manilow married his manager Garry Kief! Congratulations!

The couple got married in a private ceremony last year.

And that is the sound of broken hearts everywhere. I had no idea Barry Manilow was gay!

Barry Manilow, 71, was the Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert of his time and he still has legions of fans all over the world.


Barry Manilow and his longtime manager Garry Kief tied the knot last year in a private ceremony, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE.

“It was a surprise,” a friend of the couple says of the wedding, which was held at Manilow’s Palm Springs, California, home and attended by “20 to 30 guests” who had been told they were attending a “lunch.”

Though the couple chose to keep the wedding completely private and did not sign any official paperwork, Manilow and Kief both wear wedding bands and “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.”
