George Michael’s former boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, alleges the pop star committed suicide rather than died of natural causes in new statements to the UK publication, The Sun.
According to the newspaper, emails written by Fawaz claim Michael, 53, took his life on Christmas Eve 2016: “I’m sick and tired of people asking me what happened on Christmas Day. Well let me tell you, George died on his mother’sbirthday, so that might answer a few questions. Not to mention it took five attempts to manage to end his life. I think it’s important for the story.”
Similar claims were made on Fawaz’s Twitter account in 2017 although the Fawaz said his account had been hacked at the time.
At the time of Michael’s passing, the coroner ruled his death was due to “natural causes and had dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.”
The newspaper reports a spokeswoman for George’s estate last night said she had “no trust” in Fadi’s claims.
The Sun also notes that the 45-year-old hairdresser is still fighting for a portion of the star’s £105million estate. He apparently still lives in Michael’s Regent’s Park home even though the family has asked him to leave.
Michael’s music catalogue surged back up the charts a staggering 2,678% selling almost 500,000 tracks in the week that followed his death.
