Rufus Wainwright And Boyfriend Jorn Weisbrodt Finally Tie The Knot

He once said he didn’t understand the fight for marriage equality, but Canadian crooner Rufus Wainwright has certainly evolved: He and longtime boyfriend Jorn Weisbrodt are finally getting married.

According to Page Six, Wainwright, son of singer-songwriters Loudon Wainwright III and Kate McGarrigle, will wed the German theater producer at his home in Montauk this Thursday. The couple, who got engaged in 2010, are having a relatively simple affair but some well-known guests, including Carrie Fisher and Yoko Ono.

Following the nuptials, guests will head to a popular local restaurant, where they’ll be treated to a dinner of lobster rolls and Champagne. Then, the crowd will head to Montauk’s Shagwong Restaurant for a reception.

Together five years, Wainwright and Weisbrodt have been raising their daughter Viva, whose mother is Lorca Cohen, daughter of singer Leonard Cohen.

Talked about some great genes.
