David Gest, music producer and reality star, has passed away.
He was found after police were called in to the Four Seasons Hotel in Canary Wharf, London at 10.17am this morning (12th April).
A Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed the news, stating that police were called to “reports of an unexplained death of a man in his 60s. Life was pronounced extinct at the hotel.”
Aged 62 years old, David had most recently appeared on our screens in this year’s Celebrity Big Brother, but he was most famous for being married to Liza Minnelli as well as being a close friend of Michael Jackson.
David was just months away from going out on the road for the ‘David Gest is not dead but alive with soul’ tour. There were 24 dates planned with Dina Carroll and Russell Thompkins set to share the stage with him.
Scotland Yard have stated a post-mortem is due to be carried out; however, next of kin “are still in the process of being informed” about David’s death.
Friends and David’s CBB co-stars have just started to pay tribute to the star.
May he rest in peace.
