Legendary TV producer and entertainer David Gest has been found dead in his London hotel room at the Four Seasons Canary Wharf, E! News has confirmed.
London Metropolitan Police tell E! News that police were called at 10:17 a.m. local time and the London Ambulance Service were called to the scene. A post-mortem will be done "in due course" and the next of kin are in the process of being informed, but the case is being treated as "non-suspicious" at this time.
Gest was scheduled to go on tour throughout the United Kingdom, putting on 24 shows alongside Dina Carroll, Russell Tompkins Jr. and Freda Payne. The tour was titled David Gest Is Not Dead But Alive With Soul, a joke about the fact that some of his Celebrity Big Brother co-stars thought he was dead.
