Kym Marsh has lashed out at the body guard who claimed that her friend David Gest had put a hit out on Sir Elton John.
Last week, Imad Handi alleged that the kooky producer had paid a hit man £20, 000 to kill the flamboyant singer after he joked that he thought David was gay while he was married to Liza Minelli.
“David flew into a rage and yelled, ‘I’m going to kill [him]. He’s a dead man,” Imad told The Sun.
“I think he was so angry because Elton rumbled who he really was.”
However, in the end Imad said that he managed to convince David from going through with the job.
Kym says that she was shocked to read the allegations, especially as they had come from someone who had been so close to David before he had died.
Speaking in her column for OK! magazine she raged: “I was shocked to read it had come from someone who claims to be so close to David.
“I personally don’t know Imad, but I know he had a long standing relationship with David so it’s really disrespectful and it disturbed me a bit.’
Kym says that as David is no longer with us, we should respect his memory
“I think they should just leave David alone to rest in peace.
“He was a lovely man ad it’s not fair when he’s not here to defend himself.”
Meanwhile, Kym says she would like to see Will.I.Am join Corrie to become Michelle newest love interest.
“Will said he’d like to appear Coronation Street and have a relationship on the show and I think he and Michelle could be a good match.
“She’s been with plenty of other men and he seems like a good candidate, so why not? Although I definitely think that would the end of Michelle and Steve.”
Hey producers, hope you’re listening…..
