Gest's Zebra Milk Request
Music producer David Gest shocked staff at a top London hotel when he demanded zebra milk be delivered to the suite he shared with his now-estranged wife Liza Minnelli. Gest, who is currently starring in British reality TV show I'm a celebrity... GET ME OUT OF HERE!, was staying at the five-star Lanesborough when he shocked staff with his room service request. Gest reportedly told staff to pay a visit to London Zoo when he was told the hotel only stocked cow, sheep, goat and soya milk - but butler SEAN DAVOREN came to the rescue. Davoren says, "I'm not usually fazed by anything, but I have to confess my first thought was somebody was taking the mickey (having a joke). "Luckily, I remembered a fellow who'd helped me before. Sure enough there was a shop at the top of Regent's Park where you could buy the stuff. "It was GBP15 a pint, and the guest had a pint everyday."
