    SANDY GALLIN
    DEAD AT 76

    4/21/17 10:05 AM PST



    8 Sandy Gallin -- who repped the likes of Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Cher, Richard Pryor, Barbra Streisand, Whoopi Goldberg, Neil Diamond, Donny and Marie, and many, many others -- has died ... TMZ has learned.

    Gallin was clinging to life at UCLA Medical Center where he was in ICU after suffering a relapse of multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer.

    The former powerful Hollywood manager's condition had deteriorated over the last few days to the point his closest friends -- including Calvin Klein, Jeffrey Katzenberg, David Geffen and many others -- visited Sandy in the hospital.

    Gallin's powerful clout in Hollywood transcended into politics as one of the Democratic party's driving forces ... raising millions for various candidates and causes. Gallin, who is gay, also lent huge support to gay rights legislation.

    He also found success in real estate ... making untold millions as the house flipper to the stars.

    Gallin was 76.

    #RIP

    I'm glad his friends were able to see him before he died. A lot of people loved him. Rest in peace.

    RIP....but wasn't he shady towards MJ too when they split? A while back I read on the old The Awful Truth thread on the E!online site that he was the "source" of some of those anti-MJ stories that Ted Casablanca use to write about.

    I think it was in 1997 with Dieter Wiesner during the HIStory tour?

    I wonder what caused the split with Sandy. He should have called Frank back then and there.

    Interesting article. Just spent the last hour reading both it and all the comments under it.
    I do remember the NYT article back then, and Sandy stating uncategorically that the lyrics meant just the opposite of what the article was implying. But from reading this, it seems after the article got legs and the rest of the mainstream press piled on, including his friends Geffen and Spielberg, I suppose Gallin backed down too.

    Funny at the time that I just didn't get how they could possibly misinterpret the lyrics and the man we all grew up with and knew, and felt like it was just a deliberate misunderstanding-to put Michael in his place-some of the comments in the article seem to be the same-still not getting it, or purposely not getting it.

    I never heard of him, but I hope he's in Heaven with Jesus now.
