George Michael’s ex-boyfriend who described him as the love of his life, has said that the star’s body had “just given up” when he died.

Kenny Goss, who was with Michael for 13 years until they split up in 2009, and who described the star as “the love of his life”, spoke his mind about his passing.

The Wham star died on Christmas day 2016 at his home.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Goss said of Michael’s death: “I can’t say for sure but I think his body just gave up. All these years, it was just weak.”

Of their relationship, he adds: “We were together for 15 years and in the gay world that is a long time.”

“People used to say we ­argued but we wouldn’t really. It was always just silly things about who had the remote control,” he added.

“When we split up there was no big argument, it was just how it was. It was a lovely relationship. I miss him.”

Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz was also reported to have been banned from the funeral, after loved ones broke into a public row about the arrangements.

The singer’s body remains unburied as toxicology tests continue.

It’s expected to be another four weeks before conclusions of the tests can be drawn and the funeral take place.

That’ll make it 13 weeks since the Wham! singer passed away on Christmas Day 2016.

The reasons for the hold-up is not publicly known, but it’s expected the funeral will include loved ones and famous friends.

Adele recently wept as she paid tribute to the star.

Police are still treating the death as unexplained but non-suspicious

Authorities are now also investigating how Fadi Fawaz’s 999 call came to be leaked.

Fawaz revealed that he slept in his car after finding his boyfriend dead, and had tried for an hour to wake him up.
