Legendary singer Neil Diamond is a married man once again.
And the "Cherry, Cherry" balladeer found love close to home: Diamond’s new wife is his manager, 42-year-old Katie McNeil, his rep confirmed to CNN.
The newlyweds tied the knot Saturday in L.A. during a private ceremony attended by close friends and family.
The 71-year-old singer told his fans via Twitter on Sunday, "Katie and I got married last night, we wish you all could've been there. It was magical!"
It’s the third marriage for Diamond but the first for McNeil. They announced their impending nuptials via Twitter this past September.
"Good news coming from sunny LA/ and you're the first I want to tell/ Katie & I just got engaged/ and I hope you wish us well," Diamond wrote at the time. He also tweeted that he was "lovestruck" by his new fiancee.
The pair met three years ago when McNeil produced Diamond's documentary, "Neil Diamond: Hot August Night/NYC."
This year looks to also hold a hot summer for the "Sweet Caroline" singer, as he's set to kick off a U.S. tour on June 1.
Guess he got more than her first husband had..
Journo's don't get anything right-it's her SECOND marriage !!
Remember 2008-Nelson Mandela visit?? They said she was Neil's companion?
She MADE THEM RETRACT IT SAYING SHE WAS MARRIED-!!
His new wife looks like an older Torri Spelling who also has a long horse face. I wonder if they are related, but I do agree with some of the others, she smells money!
Love it. Kick azz Neil.
why not. good luck to you both
Been a huge fan since 60s. This is disgusting. His brain in his crotch. Love struck. Yes he says that to all the women. I still love him but he is either a player or a fool.
And this is important because??? Nothing new about a 71 year old man wanting to reclaim his youth by having a trophy wife on his arm.
He's 71 and she's 42, can you smell a gold digger?
Are you kidding me? Look at that horse face! If I was 71, rich and single, I'd be looking for a gold digger, 30 tops and really stacked!
She's pretty hot for 42.
