Independent apologises to David Gest for 'herpes' claim

The Independent has today apologised to TV personality David Gest over a piece in its Extra supplement which incorrectly suggested that he alleged that actress Liza Minnelli gave him herpes.

“Mr Gest has told us, which we accept, that he did not make any such allegation and that he has never had the disease,” the paper said.

“We apologise to Mr Gest for any embarrassment or distress caused by this mistake.”
