David Gest blames his breakup with Liza Minnelli on a tabloid article, not alleged physical abuse. Gest told Stone Phillips in a "Dateline NBC" interview to be broadcast Friday that Minnelli "beat me and hit me everywhere," but it was a National Enquirer article portraying his estranged wife as an alcoholic that led to the relationship's end. "She got the magazine on a Wednesday morning and on Thursday announced our marriage was over."

"60 Minutes" already has done a segment on alcohol and drug abuse among teen-agers in Pacific Palisades. Now comes ABC's "20/20" with a somewhat controversial version at 10 tonight on Channels 7, 3, 10 and 42. The Palisades has been shaken by an unusual number of teen fatalities related to drugs or alcohol. In researching the "20/20" story, producer Joe Lovett and his crew angered Palisades High School psychologist Linda Swimmer-Levine by filming at--but not trying to stop--a party on a perilous bluff where drugs and alcohol were in use. School officials had alerted police to the party, but no police showed up. "20/20" uses brief footage from the party to demonstrate the prevalence and easy accessibility of drugs and alcohol among Palisades teen-agers, blaming much of it on affluent parents who are inattentive or too submissive.
