David Gest, Odd Ex-Husband of Liza Minnelli, Found Dead in London HotelRoom

Apparently he had been battling some health issues, but wasn't he a most peculiar man?

The Daily New reports:
David Gest, the TV and music producer who turned into tabloid fodder during his stormy marriage withLiza Minnelli, died Tuesday in a London hotel. He was 62.

Gest, who left "Celebrity Big Brother" in January over health problems, was found dead in a Four Seasons in Canary Wharf at 10:17 a.m., police said.

A cause of death has not been determined. Police said an autopsy would take place "in due course."
Gest's New York attorney from his notorious divorce remembered him as a kind man who made the best of his prolonged legal drama.

"He was one of the funniest people you could meet in your whole life," Sue Moss told the Daily News Tuesday.

"He really always took the time to ask you how you were doing...He was a real pleasure to work with."

Moss said she last spoke with Gest about six years ago, after he moved to England and found new fame there. He loved having that opportunity to "start over," she said.

Broadway producer Rick Miramontez told the News Gest was "a major showman" with "eclectic taste and love for artists."

Who'd have thunk Liza would be the last (wo)man standing?!

Liza is humming "I'm still here".

I loved Chris Kattan's impression of him on SNL. I am thinking of the skit (skits?) where Alec Baldwin played Tony Bennett on a fake talk show and Chris' David sat next to Maya Rudolph's Liza and looked around in a wide-eyed daze, cocking his head this way and that, randomly like a parrot.
