David was raised in Southern California, and as he was growing up befriended Michael Jackson, with whom he remained close friends until Michael’s death in 2009.

David first came to prominence in the mid- 2000s when he appeared in the show “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” on ITV, and finished the competition in fourth place. However, some irregularities were discovered later with vote counting, but David declined recounting, though votes were in his favor. The following year he got his own show on the ITV, entitled “This is David Gest”, but it was only short-lived, because of low audience ratings.

He bounced back with participation in such shows as “Soapstar Superstar”, and “Grease Is the Word” (2007). However, he bought out his contract from the ITV, and switched to Channel 4 on which he made several more appearances in such shows as “Come Dine with Me”, and also hosted “The Friday Night Project”, which only further increased his net worth. In 2001 he produced another documentary about Michael Jackson and his successful life, called “Michael Jackson: Life of an Icon” (2011), the success of which further increased his net worth. Prior to his death, David was selected to appear in the UK version of the show “Celebrity Big Brother” (2016), however, after 15 episodes, David was forced to leave the Big Brother’s house because of his deteriorating health. This happened in January 2016, and in April the same year, David was found dead in his Four Seasons Hotel room, after suffering a stroke. David passed away on the 12th April 2016 in London, UK.

David had also published his autobiography in April 2007, entitled ‘Simply the Gest’ following his rather acrimonious divorce, which contributed somewhat to his net worth.

Regarding his personal life, David was married to pop icon Liza Minnelli from 2002 to 2007. In 2003 he sued her for abusive behavior, apparently caused by her addiction to alcohol, however, the court declined his accusations, while Liza stated that he was just after her money.

1I did plastic surgery in 1980 and I did my eyes and I had a facelift when I was very young because Michael Jackson said to me, 'You've got to make yourself always look better.' I thought to myself, 'Oh I'll do this because Michael told me.' What an idiot I was. I'm telling people be who you are, you do not need to do plastic surgery, it's the stupidest thing in the world.
