Congrats Neil Diamond

Singer, Neil Diamond, 71, and his manager, Katie McNeil, 42, wed yesterday in LA with only close friends and relatives. This is Diamond’s third marriage, and McNeil’s first. In September via Twitter, he announced his engagement by saying “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.” It has been 17 years since his divorce from Marcia Murphey which lasted 25 years and welcomed 2 sons. He ended up paying over $150 million in the settlement, but stated Murphey was “worth every penny.” Diamond’s first marriage was to childhood school sweetheart, Jayne Posner, which lasted 6 years and welcomed 2 daughters. Diamond and McNeil first met while McNeil was producing a concert documentary in 2009. Diamond said he was “lovestruck” over McNeil. Congrats to both of the newlyweds!
