Barry Manilow, on stage in 2012, has reportedly married his long-term boyfriend Garry Kief.

It looks like they made it. American singer Barry Manilow reportedly married his long-term boyfriend and manager, Garry Kief, in a private ceremony last year.

The 71-year-old crooner invited about 20 to 30 guests to his Palm Springs, California mansion for a “lunch”, People magazine reported. The event turned out to be a wedding ceremony.

“Barry has lived a very secretive life and the wedding was no different,” a person close to Manilow told the US National Enquirer, which first reported the story. “It was a beautiful wedding and consummated their lifelong love affair.”

Manilow, whose hits include Mandy, Copacabana and Can’t Smile Without You, has always maintained a thick veil of secrecy over his private life. He married his high school sweetheart Susan Deixler in 1964 but it was annulled within two years. Despite speculation he has never discussed his sexuality publicly, and a spokesperson declined to comment on the marriage reports.

The Looks Like We Made It singer is currently undertaking a US tour, called “One Last Time”, due to conclude in New York in June. It is estimated he has sold in excess of 80 million albums since the start of his recording career in the 1970s.

In 2006, Rockdale Council announced it would deploy Manilow’s music as a secret weapon against “troublesome teens” loitering in the car parks of Brighton Le Sands. Then-councillor Gary Green, who has since died, was asked by a fellow councillor to provide an example of music that would be a particular deterrent to young hoons.

“I don’t know why, but Barry Manilow popped into my head,” he said.

People reported Manilow and Kief have not signed any official paperwork but wear wedding bands. A source told the magazine: “They have a great relationship [and] are committed to one another and have been for a very long time.”

According to the National Enquirer, actress Suzanne Somers – a longtime Manilow friend and neighbour – was the best man, and Marc Hulett – Manilow’s assistant since the 1980s – performed the ceremony.
