Neil Diamond - Neil Diamond, 71, Marries Manager Katie Mcneil, 42

Neil Diamond has tied the knot for the third time, marrying his current manager Katie MCNeil in front of family and close friends in Los Angeles on Saturday (April 21, 2012). The superstar singer, 71, announced the engagement via his Twitter account last September.
At the time, he told followers, "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". He also attached a photograph of the 42-year-old, adding, "I'm lovestruck". It's the first marriage for MCNeil, and the third of Diamond, who kicks off his huge U.S. summer tour on June 1, 2012. In 1963, the crooner married his high school sweetheart Jaye Posner and the pair went on to have two daughters together, Marjorie and Elyn before they separated in the mid 1960's. He then married production assistant Matcia Murphey - they also had two children before ending their marriage in the mid 1990's.
According to the UK's Daily Mail, Diamond and his new wife share a $35 million mansion in Los Angeles. Shortly before their ceremony at a private location in Beverly Hills, a source said, "Neil and Katie are ecstatic. She's been bubbling about the wedding for weeks now. It will be a classy affair with close friends and family.Neil got burned financially in the last divorce but he's an old romantic at heart and can't wait to get married again".
