David Gest is most famous for marrying Liza Minnelli, but in 2006 he was also the boyfriend of '90s rapper and reality star Da Brat. Check out the image below of them kissing.

Many people questioned how legit their relationship was, but judging by the smooch fest above, the two clearly felt something for each other. Sadly, David Gest died at the Four Seasons hotel in London yesterday. He was 62 years old. Allegedly, Gest was abusing sleeping pills and taking steroids for pneumonia. 

Da Brat, whose real name is Shawntae Harris, has not released a statement about her ex's passing.

Our condolences go out to David Gest's friends and family.
