Michael Jackson’s Long-Time Friend David Gest Speaks Out

In an interview with David Gest on Thursday’s ‘On the Record with Greta Van Susteren’, the ex-husband of Liza Minelli defended close friend on the child molestation charges. “I have known Michael almost all my life, and I find it so sad to think that people would believe that he could do something like this,” he said. “You know, what people do not understand, Greta, is that Michael was raised around people, at 12 years old and 14 years old, who were adults. And the first thing they’d say is, You know, Michael, I’d like to borrow $500,000 from you. You know, Michael, loan me $250,000. I’ve got a great business deal for you. And everybody wanted something from him. I know people find it odd because he hangs around with younger people. And probably, he should have married much younger and had his own children, and he would never have had these problems. But he’s always liked to be around kids because they don’t ask anything of him. They’re innocent.” Read more.
