David Gest over the moon at charity auction

 

SOME divorces end in tears, others in bitter recriminations and quite a few in a massive scrap and cut-up trousers.

But Insider far prefers David Gest’s more practical approach of flogging off his love stuff to the highest bidder.

The wonderfully eccentric Hollywood producer was host of a charity auction in Liverpool in aid of Liverpool Unites and the Variety Club North West.

He put a catalogue full of memorabilia under the hammer from his own showbiz collection. But it was one item in particular which had guests raising eyebrows as well as bids.

Lot number six on the auction list was one of many personalised gifts received by David and his bride Liza Minnelli when they were married in a lavish superstar ceremony seven years ago.

With Jacko as best man and Liz Taylor maid of honour, the New York wedding reception was wall to wall A-listers.

In amongst those toasting the then happy couple was astronaut Buzz Aldrin who presented the pair with a framed and signed lithograph showing him standing on the Moon along with other rare space goodies.

But the course of their headline-making love didn’t run smoothly and David and Liza divorced 16 months later and now the ex-Mr Minnelli is clearly keen to put his marital leftovers to good use.

Our source at the auction reports: “David was selling lots of things, but it was the wedding present which everyone was talking about. He also did a silent sale for about eight personal items which included wedding and anniversary invitations.

“David is always making little jokes about his marriage, but he obviously doesn’t want reminders hanging around and thought the charity could do with them more.”

The Buzz Aldrin photo went for £1,000 so he must be right.
