LATEST: Lorna Luft has blasted Liza Minnelli's estranged husband David Gest for turning her half-sister into "a freak show".

Liza and David announced last Saturday (25JUL03) that they are splitting after just 16 months of marriage, and the CABARET star's sibling finds the whole situation very "sad" - but thinks the pair have no one to blame but themselves.

Lorna says of Liza's fourth failed union, "I don't feel sorry for people who get themselves in these situations. I just find their behaviour odd and strange. I think it's sad.

"My sister was once a very respected and admired star. Now he's turned her into a freak show."

Liza's stepmother Lee Minnelli adds, "She's better off on her own."
