Liza Minnelli stunned Michael Jackson when she demanded to know why he allowed her to marry David Gest.
The Cabaret star wed Gest in a lavish ceremony in 2002, but their marriage ended in divorce less than 12 months later amid claims she physically abused the music producer.
Minnelli approached her old pal Jackson, who acted as best man at the ceremony, for answers on why he let her go through with the union - before the pair broke down laughing about the troubled relationship.
She tells U.S. chat show host Joy Behar, "I grabbed him when I saw him after I got out of it (marriage) and said, 'Why did you let me marry this idiot!' He said, 'I thought you liked him. You looked so happy, I don't know, let me go!' And I said, 'Michael, how could you?' He said, 'It's over, relax.' And then we looked at each other and started to laugh. And then we really started to laugh.
"Some of the things I've been through make me laugh so hard."
And Minnelli backs up her previous claims her ex-husband was only after her cash - insisting she recently discovered she paid for their wedding.
She adds, "I only (just) found out that I paid for that wedding. I only found that out about five months ago. I just found out, I said to somebody, 'At least it was pretty, it should have been, it cost however much money it cost.' And they said, 'Yeah, and you paid for it,' and I said, 'Oh'... I didn't know."

Why is it whenever Michael Jackson's name is a topic heading, tabloids and medialand have to make fun of it and put a twist in the story? Liza did not "demand" or "blame" Michael for her marriage, she and Michael were good friends. And as all good friends do during times of retrospect, you kid about stupid things by jokingly asking your friend "why did you let me do it". Liza did not speak of Michael in a negative manner at all when telling the story, she was all smiles and giggles. Her story is endearing in that they were able to laugh about it. Liza spoke of ex-husband David Gest negatively - NOT Michael! By the way David Gest, who is also Michael's friend, is releasing a popumentary in June - hello! David: gee I wonder who could get my name out there to the public? Oh I know, my ex-wife! I hope that Liza has the decency to come out with a statement to clear the air in medialand, although sadly it will only fall on deaf ears....good news does not sell. Sorry Michael but don't fret, nothing anyone says can ever change how beLOVED, cherished and appreciated you are to us. May God continue to bless you, your children and family.PEACE & L.O.V.E.
