Gest: Liza's still a legend

Music producer David Gest still considers his ex Liza Minnelli "a legend" and "wishes her well", despite a bitter divorce battle.

Music producer David Gest still considers his ex Liza Minnelli "a legend" and "wishes her well", despite a bitter divorce battle.

The couple's divorce is set to be finalised this week - nearly four years after the couple split following 16 months of marriage.

After they split, Gest accused Minnelli of leaving him needing hospital treatment after beating him in "vicious rages" and sued her for $10m (€7.34m).

The lawsuit was dismissed and Gest came to an agreement with Minnelli regarding their divorce in January.

Gest has now moved on and is dating English actress Malandra Burrows, but insists he has no hard feelings against Minnelli.

"We don't speak," he said. "The chapter is closed for both of us.

"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."
