    ^^ Twitchy is the reason why I should stop smoking - I just nearly swallowed a lit cigarette.

    Anyway, BBC news is reporting it too so it looks like it's real.

    Music producer David Gest found dead


    • 10 minutes ago
    • From Music producer and Reality television star David Gest has died in a London hotel aged 62, a statement from his friend says.


    Gest, who was 62 years old, passed away at the Four Seasons hotel in Canary Wharf.
    His friend Imad Handi confirmed the news in a statement released on Monday afternoon.
    "It is with great sadness that I can confirm that David Gest has died today," the statement read.
    'Blistering one-liners'

    The music producer was best known for being the estranged husband of singer Liza Minnelli.
    Mr Handi added: "David was truly larger than life. He was not just a huge talent and a dear friend but a showbiz icon.
    "I know he will be missed by millions of fans around the world, and particularly in Britain, who came to love his charm and blistering one-liners.
    "If I may steal the words of one eminent critic, David was a natural star and a genuine celebrity. I will miss him desperately."
    A statement from the Metropolitan Police said: "Police were called at 10:17 on Tuesday 12 April to the Four Seasons hotel, in Westferry Circus 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."
    "A post-mortem will be held in due course. Next of kin are in the process of being informed."
    Police have said there appear to be no suspicious circumstances.

    He could still do it, just change the name a little.

    He was sick in the Celebrity Big Brother house and had to leave because of it.

    This is sad news. I liked the guy. RIP David. Be well in the afterlife.

    If he was gay, he was closeted. He has children and grandchildren based on what's been posted on Twitter. His granddaughter posted about his death.

    I don't think he had natural children. Let me find the link with the Twitter.

    ETA: This is the article that mentions the granddaughter.

    i found this with some more searching:

    ”The baby’s a girl,” Gest said. ”Her name will be Serena,” said Minnelli. ”She’s American,” continued Gest. ”She’s Christian,” added Minnelli. ”She’s a little more than 3. Adoptions often take years but ours was only a four-month process. The situation was somebody who couldn’t provide for her.”

    Little Serena would be the first child for both Gest and the four-times-married Minnelli. However, don’t expect to see the proud parents showing her off on ”Liza and David,” the VH1 celebrity-dinner-party series they’re hosting from their New York apartment, starting Nov. 3. ”The baby will not be seen anywhere. That’s our private world,” the couple said.

    I'm not sure if he was ever officially out. I just assumed it was well known that he was gay.

    Peter Allen, Jack Haley Jr & David Gest were all gay and married Liza.
