It turns out 2014 saw a secret wedding come and go without anyone blowing the lid on it -- until now.

People magazine reports that Barry Manilow pulled off a secret wedding last year, marrying his manager, Garry Kief, in a private ceremony.

According to People's source, Barry and Garry invited "20 to 30 guests" to Manilow's Palm Springs house under the guise of a luncheon, which turned out to be a wedding ceremony. People says Manilow and Kief did not sign any paperwork but are wearing wedding bands.

Earlier this year, the adult contemporary pop legend told Billboard his current tour would be his last one.

"It doesn't mean I'm retiring or anything. I'll do shows and I'll promote albums if I make any more, but no more big tours," Manilow told Billboard. "That's it. It's too much packing. It's 40 years -- more than that, really -- of packing and waiting for room service. People think it's glamorous, but glamorous is the last word I would use for this job. You don't see anything; you see the inside of your hotel room."

Billboard reached out to Manilow's rep to confirm the report.
