George Michael’s £100m fortune to be given to his godchildren
George Michael’s £100 million estate is to be split between his celebrity godchildren, it has been reported.
The Wham! star died at his home on Christmas Day and was found by his partner, Fadi Fawaz.
He donated large sums of money to a number of charities prior to his death, but it’s believed a large sum will now be split between charity, family, friends and the singer’s godchildren.
Spandau Ballet bassist and former EastEnders star Martin Kemp’s children, Roman and Harley, could be in line to inherit millions from the estate.
George introduced bandmate, Shirlie Holliman, to Martin in the 80s with the pair marrying in 1988.
On Boxing Day, Martin said: “My whole family and I are devastated at the loss of our beautiful friend Yog! We will miss him so much! We are all heartbroken!”
Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell’s daughter, Bluebell, is also expected to be named in the will.
Geri posted a picture of the two on Instagram with the caption: “So, so sad RIP George.
“A dear friend, the kindest, most generous, talented person.”
The Mirror reports that money is also expected to be left to his sisters, Melanie and Yioda, his partner, Fadi, and his cousin, Andros’ two children – who he is also the godfather of.
George’s will is also expected to leave big donations to charity.
These could include organisations he had supported for some time, such as; The Terrance Higgins Trust, Childline and Macmillan Cancer Support.
The star’s wealth is believed to include a number of properties around the world.
As well as his Oxfordshire home, valued at £5 million, he also owned a mansion in London, a property in Los Angeles and a beach house in Sydney.
Stars have been paying tribute to George since his death was announced, including Elton John who posted an emotional status on Facebook.
