Liza Minnelli blamed Michael Jackson for allowing her to marry an "idiot".

The 'New York, New York' singer - whose fourth wedding, to concert promoter David Gest, took place in 2002, with their pal Michael acting as best man - spoke to the late pop legend after the lavish ceremony and begged him to explain why he had allowed to go through with it.

She said: "I grabbed him when I saw him when I got out of there. And I said, 'Why did you let me marry this idiot?' He said, 'I thought you liked him! You look so happy. Your dress was so beautiful. I don't know. Let me go!' And I said, 'Michael, how could you.' He said, 'It's over, relax.' Then we looked at each other and we started to laugh, we really started to laugh."

Liza - who divorced David just 16 months later - refuses to refer to her former spouse by his name and only recently discovered he hadn't paid a penny towards the star-studded nuptials.

She explained in an interview on 'The Joy Behar Show': "You know something terrible? I only found out I paid for that wedding about five months ago. I said to somebody, 'Well - I'll never mention his name again - but at least it was pretty. It should be it cost however much money it cost.' And they said, 'Yeah, well you paid for it.' Did I think he had paid for it? Oh sure, I didn't know."

Although the 64-year-old star - who has also been married to Peter Allen, Jack Haley Jr. and Mark Gero - regrets her most recent marriage, she finds many aspects of the relationship amusing.

She added: "Some of the things make me laugh so hard when I look back. It was funny though, it was really funny."

That story was hilarious!!! Especially Michael's comment. I went from reading Janet's story, feeling really sad to reading this one and craking up. Michael said "let me go." You can only laugh about something like that with someone that had to have been a really good friend. Miss you much Michael.
