#BarryManilow comes out as GAY! Reveals partner of 39 years in RARE interview!! [vid]
Barry Manilow reveals that he is GAY and opens up about his SECRET marriage of 39 years!
Headlines about his secret marriage to manager Garry Kief in 2014 forced him to come out as gay in 2015, but he hasn't discussed his sexuality or marriage since -- until now.
The 73-year-old singer opened up to People magazine for a rare interview inside his Palm Springs home, where he lives with Kief and where they tied the knot. Manilow told the magazine that when the pair met in 1978, “I knew that this was it," adding, "I was one of the lucky ones. I was pretty lonely before that.”
Despite being in love with Kief, who serves as Manilow's manager and acts as President of Barry Manilow Productions, Manilow admitted that he was concerned about how fans would react upon finding out that he was gay. “I thought I would be disappointing them if they knew I was gay. So I never did anything,” Manilow said.
I thought this was already established? But ok....
