This was one kooky couple. The Oscar-winning actress and the plastic surgery-loving concert promoter were married in an over-the-top ceremony on March 16, 2002—with Elizabeth Taylor serving as maid of honor and none other than the late Michael Jackson carrying the bride's train. However, the two parted ways less than a year and a half later, in July 2003. And then things got strange. In October 2003 Gest, known for gag-inducing acts of PDA with Minnelli, filed a $10 million lawsuit against her, alleging that the Cabaret star beat him so badly during alcoholic rages that she caused permanent nerve damage. Minnelli then countersued, claiming Gest stole up to $2 million from her while they were together. They ultimately settled with each other and agreed to a no-fault divorce on Jan. 18, 2007.
