Rufus Wainwright Is Getting Married (and Celebrating With a $70K Motor Home)
Many a couple has danced to the crooning ballads of Rufus Wainwright on their wedding day, and now it’s the singer’s turn to tie the knot. Tomorrow Wainwright weds his longtime boyfriend Jorn Weisbrodt at his home in Montauk. Yoko Ono and Carrie Fisher are expected to be among the 250 guests.
