Neil Diamond has tied the knot for the third time.

The 71-year-old crooner made it a hat-trick of marriages when he wed his manager Katie McNeil, 42, in Los Angeles on Saturday (21.04.12), where the couple were joined by family and close friends, his representative confirmed to People magazine.

Neil - who announced his engagement to Katie last September - took to his twitter page to reveal his nuptials were ''magical''.

He tweeted yesterday (22.04.12): ''Katie and I got married last night, we wish you all could've been there. It was magical! Love, Neil.''

The breakdown of Neil's second marriage to Marcia Murphey - who he wed in 1969 and divorced in 1994 - resulted in one of the entertainment industry's most expensive divorces with the 'Sweet Caroline' singer paying a reported $150 million settlement.

Neil has two sons, Jesse and Micah, with Marcia, and two daughters, Marjorie and Elyn, with first wife Jaye Posner, who he split from in 1967.
