Music Producer David Gest Dead at 62
The show has closed. The producer, TV personality and ex-husband of Liza Minnelli was found unresponsive in his London hotel room, police said, and the cause of death is still unclear. Gest was a lifelong friend of Michael Jackson and his 30th anniversary special for the late singer was reportedly the highest-rated in television history when it aired in 2001. He’d recently gained fame in Britain on Celebrity Big Brother — and was about to start touring his show, David Gest Is Not Dead but Alive With Soul.
