Producer and reality star David Gest (formerly Mr. Liza Minnelli) was found dead in his Four Seasons hotel room in Canary Wharf, London earlier today. He was 62 years old.

“Police were called at 10:17 hrs 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,” a statement from the Metropolitan Police reads.

“A post-mortem will be held in due course,” the statement continues. “Next of kin are in the process of being informed.”

Gest, who was a close friend of the late Michael Jackson and who was briefly married to Liza Minnelli in 2002, recently appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, but left after just 13 days for unspecified medial reasons. As of now, his death is being treated as unexplained.

Minnelli has yet to release a statement. Despite a messy divorce, which included allegations Minnelli had physically abused Gest, the couple appeared to be on good terms in the end, with Gest saying: “I wish her well and tell people they should see her live in concert. Liza is a great performer–she has been singing the same songs for more than 35 years. She’s a true legend.”

Gest was scheduled to embark on a U.K. tour in July called “David Gest Is Not Dead, But Alive With Soul.” And in January, he tweeted this cryptic meme of himself:

by John Gallagher February 23, 2017

We’ve already discussed why Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin is terrible for us. But in light of the expanding firestorm over Russia’s outsized influence in the Trump administration, the question is, just how terrible. As it turns out, it could be worse than we imagined. Trump’s campaign was bizarrely and distressingly cozy with anti-democratic Russia. The candidate himself openly [...]
