I read a bit about David Gest, though it could just be journalistic nonsense I suppose.
He was living in the Four Seasons Hotel when he died, in a suite costing £1,000 per night.

His estate comprised a house in Tennessee, a lot of Michael Jackson memorabilia and the rights to Dionne Warwick's songs, vids etc.
Don't know if that lot would be worth 10 million, doubtful I'd think.

He might have owed his lawyer money - lawyers don't come cheap after all.  
I imagine even minor celebs have expensive lifestyles they feel important to maintain, not been there myself so can't understand that.
It does become so very unsavoury and demeaning after a death when the vultures start wanting/expecting benefits though.


ETA@   just seen your post Andrew  -  so that's where the figure of 10 million comes from ! Maybe Liza was paying that off in monthly instalments?? Ending when he died?

According to this, all he got was £5,000.00.
