I am an professional stagehand who has crewed for Barry Manilow on 2 separate occassions. Both times, he has behaved like an obnoxious jerk both towards his own crew as well as those of us who fill-in "locally" when he does concerts in the US. He's a dickhead pure and simple and only turns on the charm to sell songs to those fools who think he's a nice guy. Too bad the vast majority of you can't see him backstage the way we do. If he dropped dead on the floor next to me, I'd step on his face just to make sure there was no chance of him coming back. He truly sucks.
Yes, I have also heard this. He is very talented, his philanthropic efforts for kid's music education is a nice gesture. BUT, offstage I've heard reports like yours. He can be very nasty, and he does know better. Like you say, he can ooze with charm when it suits him. I knew of one beautiful show biz exec who had a very unpleasant encounter with him; all she tried to do was welcome him to her venue, w/flowers nonetheless. Just very nasty w/no provocation. I have another friend who is a fanilow and she says he treats his fans beautifully, but she has only seen him in at controlled appearances for the fans & not spontaneously. He supposedly told his fans he has repented for acting like a young jerk. Who knows? but I don't blame U for feeling like you do. His fans seem to be very emotionally bonded to him, and that turns me off. I hope you are better treated and appreciated, sir. Hostile work environs are the pits. And the people who create them are so abusive.

I see alot of story telling on here even if the stories are a few years old. ESp brenda from Ohio
she really tells a good fake story Funny how that Brenda is on other sites and does not mention her encounter with manilow in a restaurant.WHY? because she made it up. Too bad people have to make up stories to get attention

Dear Christal:Also you can search Google images for:Barry Manilow and Maria Shriver.You'll find a picture of them together.They met in 1979. About Barry Manilow being a narcissist who cant fixate unconsciously on anyone else but himself.:I can find a psychiatrist who can verify this for you publicly if you want.And how would you,a fanilow be able to judge such a thing anyway? Let's face it YOU'RE NOT THE SHARPEST TOOLS IN THE SHED.Did you know that Barry Manilow told the press that "He's only ever been in love once in his entire life?(He means he's only ever been in love with HIMSELF).He also said "He didn't get his heart broken." And about Barry Manilow doing charity work.:EVERY celebrity does charity work.It keeps their name in the press and they get to give back to society.Doing charity work is a matter of course for a celebrity.

To Christal,If you search Google:My two dads:Palm Springs Weekend you'll find proof that Scott Hines is married to someone named Jon L Hines.Their wedding photos are on that page.Kevin Blessing has met Scott Hines but he's not in a relationship with him.Scott Hines is married to someone else.

To Christal,To find prro that Barry Manilow had a one night stand with Maria Shriver Google: Barrynapped! Also search Google images for :Barry Manilow and Maria Shriver. To find proof that there was something sexual going on between Barry Manilow and Keely Vasquez searc Kye Brackett's facebook page and scroll down to where it says "2004 tour."There you'll find pictures of Barry Manilow and Keely Vasquez as a couple.In one of these pictures Barry Manilow has his arm around Keely Vasquez's waist like she's his girl.There's sexual body language between them in that picture.Also Keely Vasquez is wearing a low cut dress and she and Barry Manilow are drinking wine together.Also on Keely Vasquez's twitter page sometime back around 2011 someone called @poshbrood tweeted Keely Saying "will there be Cocktails for Barry and Keely?" like she had served them cocktails before.This was around the time Keely Vasquez escorted Barry Manilow to a hotel in Washington DC.Since it's been verified by Victor Valecore,a former musical director for Barry Manilow that,quote"Barry Manilow cant go anywhere."(for fear of being recognized)and Barry Manilow has said that "It's too much of a hassel for me to go out."If Barry Manilow and Keely Vasquez had Cocktails together they had to have them in Barry Manilow's hotel room.Barry Manilow would be unable to go out of his hotel room to have them at the hotel bar. Sure,Keely Vasquez dumped Barry Manilow later and found someone ELSE to marry her.That was just Barry Manilow was just using her for a good time and refusing to commit.He treated Linda allen and several other girls the same way.THEY SHOULD HAVE JUST PUNCHED THE TWERP!I WOULD HAVE!

Dear Christal,Here's something else you should know,"Dogs and cats instantly know who to trust based on various clues-facial expressions,gestures and mannerisms.And humans can too!"But unlike our pets,we tend to ignore what our subconscious tells us,choosing logic over emotion," says intuitive counselor Lynn Robinson,M.Ed.

What is it about this man's personal life that his music and success for 40 years is tossed aside and droves of people want to know where he lives and god forbid if he's a member of the gay community? Why? Does his celebrity status automatically target him for ridicule and hearsay, outright lies about his life that is nobody's business. We've become a TMZ lower than a snake society with this kind of crap out there. Yes, he's been famous for years, he's an interesting person. He's a human being with feelings just like every one else. I see things written that are sickening. If people don't like him, ok, they don't have to like him, but trashing a person for his personal choices and making false statements about him is morally wrong. It's sad. The gossip crowd is in a frenzy and people who don't have anything better to do pick a target to rip. People who do this are picking on the wrong man. His music, his work ethic, his care for those who suffer, and his devotion to his fans. These are the things we should look at. Leave him alone people. He's not perfect; but no one is, so put it to rest and look inside yourselves. Ok, say it. Everyone has a right to an opinion. But he has a very big loyal fanbase for THE MUSIC. And that cannot be denied. For every rotten thing said about him there is someone like me who will fight for him. The music does it for me and he has alot of people who love him and what he does and has done for 40 years. He hasn't stopped either. Keep going Barry. You're the best.

I worked with Barry and his crew during a county fair many years ago. As the stagehand mentioned here, he really is a jerk. I loved his music for years, but because of this incident, I will never give that man a dime of my money. Everyday is your job interview.

I know Some of You Have a Right to your Opinion But There is Such a thing as Constructive Criticism
& If you Can't Find the Right words Instead of Tearing Barry Down What you Need to do Is Pray For God to Heal His Heart & For You to Understand that sometimes Like Every Human Being He Gets Frustrated, Tired & Overworked He wants to Be Treated Like Regular Person instead of a Star. Barry Needs His Space Sometimes to Sort Things Out He Will Respond But Give Him Time. When I read These Posts Calling Him Hurtful Names Like Dick-Head & Jerk Really Hurts My Heart. I may Not Know Barry Personally But I KNOW in My Heart Barry is Not a Rude Person

Barry has no right being a jerk. His albums after 1970 all suck... So no reason to be a egocentric prick.

I am so sick of YOU WARPED, PERVERTED DEVILS attacking Barry! What is it? Your jealousy? Stupidity? Or just plain hatred for anyone or anything good?! It's understandable why you hate good, beautiful music and beautiful people like Barry! YOU ARE EVIL, ALL OF YOU ATTACKERS! Look in the mirror and you'll find all the ugly things you say about Barry are within YOURSELVES! You had better get out of the sewer that you love to swim in and clean up YOUR act before it's too late! YOU ALL SICKEN ME!
