Page Six reached out to Manilow's rep for a comment, but has not received a reply.

Barry Manilow wrote jingles for Pepsi, McDonald's, and more before he broke onto the pop music charts back in the 1970s. He worked with Bette Midler from 1971 to 1975.

Despite the fact that he is 72, Barry Manilow still enjoys a cult following. Most of his fans are middle-aged or older women.

They--in addition to husband Garry Kief--are hoping the singer makes a full and speedy recovery.
