“The truth is out”: George Michael’s boyfriend lashes out as cause of death confirmed

March 8, 2017

Fadi Fawaz and George Michael.

The late George Michael’s boyfriend has posted an emotional update after the star’s cause of death was confirmed.

Tests determined that George Michael died from “natural causes” yesterday.

Fawaz slammed the “cruel” experience since Michael’s death, Christmas Day, in a series of emotional Tweets

He posted “F*** YOU” on hearing the news of the coroner’s report.

Adding: “All the nasty comments, press and 999 were very cruel and unnecessary whatsoever, Now I hope to receive some real LOVE x”

He then posted a black and white photo of the couple together.

The 52-year-old singer’s death remained unexplained for months after a post-mortem examination was inconclusive.

According to a coroner, his death was caused by dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.

The coroner said: “Inquires into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post-mortem report received.

“As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further enquiries.

“No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”

The news comes counter to weeks of tabloid reports that have inferred that the singer’s drug use was to blame.

Since his death, dozens of people have opened up about the singer’s extraordinary generosity and anonymous philanthropy, donating millions to good causes without revealing his identity.

Funeral plans for the star are expected to be announced soon.

It’s been reported that Fadi Fawaz is banned from the funeral, however.

The Wham! star’s cousin, Andros Georgiou, claims that his boyfriend, will not be allowed to attend because the Michael family “hate him”.

Georgiou blasted the late singer’s boyfriend, saying: “Fadi has not been invited to the funeral.

“He is not welcome, the family hate him. Heaven help him if he turned up.

“Fadi was not really his boyfriend. No one has spoken to him and he just seems to be getting on with his life. It makes my stomach turn.”

But now Fawaz has hit back at the claims, insisting he will be at the funeral.

He wrote on Twitter: “That someone who is saying all this rubbish about the funeral has not been part of George’s life for 19 years.

“Can we cut the crap now for once and for all.

“Let’s have some respect for George (the poor man). George’s family are very loving respectful and decent people, there is nothing more to say.”

Cindi Berger, Michael’s publicist, said previously: “It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period.

“The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”
