Los Angeles, Aug 14 (IANS) Late producer David Gest, who breathed his last on April 12, reportedly died from a stroke.
The popular entertainer who passed away at the 62, Gest died of a stroke, US attorney Edward Bearman said. Bearman has been dealing with his estate, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’ve been told David died from a stroke,” The Sun newspaper quoted Bearman as saying.
Gest was found dead in his hotel room and police said his death was being treated as “non-suspicious”.
A subsequent post-mortem examination said Gest died of natural causes.
Gary Veazey, the executor of Gest’s will, has confirmed the reason for his passing. “He died of a stroke.”
In May, David’s bodyguard Imad Handi claimed to have heard the star suffer a fatal heart attack during their last phone conversation, four days before his body was found.
Handi, who was friends with Gest for 16 years, said he received a silent phone call, which he believes was the entertainer trying to ask for urgent help, in the days before his body was found.
