Barry Manilow Comes Out As Gay

Not Released

Barry Manilow wants to remain as private as he can about his relationship with husband Garry Kief.

Fiercely private, the pop icon recently welcomed PEOPLE into his Palm Springs home for an exclusive interview and photo shoot with his manager husband Garry Kief - and talked for the first time about their almost 40-year romance.

"He's the smartest person I've ever met in my life - and a great guy, too", Manilow said. I was pretty lonely before that.

Barry Manilow says he felt coming out publicly would have disappointed his fans, so he did not declare his sexual orientation.

Singer-songwriter, Barry Manilow has come out as gay at the age of 73, two years after it was reported that he married his longtime partner, Garry. "I am so private". 'When they found out that Garry and I were together, they were so happy.

"The reaction was so lovely strangers commenting, 'Great for you!' I'm just so grateful for it", says Manilow.

The full interview will run in People's latest edition, published tomorrow, April 7th. "That I wasn't alone, that I had somebody that was with me that I loved and that we'd been together for 37 years".

Barry Manilow performs in London on May 4, 2011.

Manilow was scheduled to perform in Israel previous year, but abruptly cancelled the show due to what his publicist said was an overflowing schedule of worldwide artists performing in Israel.

According to Barry Manilow, he was not yet struggling with his sexuality when he married his high school sweetheart, Susan Deixler.

"We've been together all these years". "Everybody knows that we're a team".

"I'm glad he stayed", said the singer of such hits as "Mandy" and "Can't Smile Without You". "I wasn't ready to settle down", he stated, he wasn't ready for the marriage as he was too young.

Manilow was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.
