LIZA Minnelli blamed Michael Jackson for her 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 Jackson 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.»

Minnelli – who divorced Gest 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.»
