This should be entertaining to watch:
David Gest, the estranged husband of Liza Minnelli, claims in a lawsuit filed today that the singer regularly beat him during the couple’s 16-month marriage. In the below New York State Supreme Court complaint, Gest, 50, describes Minnelli, 57, as an overweight, raging alcoholic who seriously injured him during a June attack (the couple separated the following month). According to Gest, whose lawsuit seeks $10 million in damages, he became a “victim of domestic violence” who, as a result of Minnelli’s beatings, now lives in “virtually constant, unrelenting pain” that requires “11 prescription medications per day, some more than once.” Gest’s complaint chronicles alleged beatings in London, Italy, and New York and claims that Minnelli once threw a lamp at him, punched a security guard, choked a male employee of Gest’s, and bit another security official. Gest even recounts a pre-marriage incident in December 2001 as the couple traveled, via a chauffeured Mercedes, to enroll Minnelli in a Pennsylvania rehab facility. Gest claims that the singer drank an entire bottle of red wine in the car and then began beating him “about his head with open hands and closed fists.”
Another Hollywood train wreck unfolds in slow-motion. Even though this is a civil suit, I could not fault either one for beating the other, and I would do my best to find a way to put them both in jail, even though jail terms would not be permissible.
How much of a pussy do you have to be to let yourself get beat up by Liza Minelli? Honestly. I don’t even think $10M would wipe that stain off my pride.
Imam Psycho Muhammed
I wonder if she was singing, “Life is a Caberet” while she was whipping his pansy ass all over their Manhattan penthouse apartment.
And don’t give me any crap, in this particular situation, about husband abuse being a serious matter; not to be joked about because some men a too ashamed to admit they’re being abused by a fat, drunk has-been in a dress(apologies to Teddy Kennedy). He damn sure wasn’t too ashamed to sue for $10,000,000.00. Man that musta been some asswhupping. If he had had any nuts he might have really gotten hurt.
Imam Psycho, if that IS your real name, husband abuse is a serious matter for millions of men. Except that this right here is G-d D-mn hilarious.
Of course, this is assuming David Gest is in fact human, and male.
There needs to be a film about this PRONTO, and John Waters needs to direct.
Beat up by a girl… [snickers]
