Get more details on the death of David Gest and what happened on the flip…
CelebNMusic247.com has the following report via Page Six:
“Police were called at 10:17 hrs on Tuesday 12 April to the Four Seasons hotel, in Westferry Circus, E14, to reports of an unexplained death of a man in his 60s,”
“London Ambulance service was called to the scene. Life was pronounced extinct at the hotel.”
An autopsy will be conducted soon, officials said.
Gest most famously married Liza Minnelli in a star-studded ceremony in March 2002 before they separated less than a year later in 2003.
Gest sued Minnelli, 70, for $10 million for assault, claiming she beat him under the influence of alcohol, the Washington Post reported. Minnelli counter-sued, claiming he stole money from her. The suit came to a close in 2007 when the sides reached an agreement.
Gest’s former attorney Susan Moss told Page Six in a statement:
“David Gest was a kind soul and a great entertainer. He truly will be missed.”
A rep for Minnelli said Tuesday she’d have no comment.
In recent years, the Southern California native had enjoyed living a down-to-earth, simple existence in York, more than 200 north of London. Earlier this year he was on “Celebrity Big Brother” in the United Kingdom.
RIP David Gest.
