Producer, reality star and former husband of Liza Minelli, David Guest has been found dead in his hotel room this morning at the age of 62.
“Police were called at 10:17hrs 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 were called to the scene. Life was pronounced extinct at the hotel.”
David was set to begin a tour this July titled David Gest Is Not Dead, But Alive With Soul, named after the cringeworthy scene that erupted when his Big Brother housemate, Tiffany Pollard, mistakenly thought Gest had died during filming. Eeesh! The irony. Currently, the cause of death is unknown.
Gest produced the highest-rated musical television special in history, Michael Jackson: 30th Anniversary Celebration: The Solo Years in 2001, which was the last reunion of Michael Jackson and the Jacksons in 17 years, and Jackson’s last solo concerts. Gest appeared on the 2006 series of the British reality television show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!. RIP David!
