Details of George Michael’s incredibly generous will have emerged

March 13, 2017

Details of George Michael’s £105m will have begun to emerge.

It’s reported that his hairdresser sister, Melanie Panayiotou, is set to inherit his £10m mansion in north London.

The 55-year-old has already been seen living in the house according to reports in MailOnline.

The star has spent three months unburied after investigations into his cause of death continued.

The singer’s other older sister Yioda Panayiotou, 57, is also reported to be receiving a large chunk of his estimated £105million fortune.

A number of charities and causes that were close to the legendary performer’s heart are expected to be recognised in the will, too.

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.

Michael is expected to be laid to rest either today or later this week.

The star was confirmed as having died from “natural causes” last week.

Supermodel and neighbour Kate Moss is reported as learning the date of his funeral while boarding a flight to New Dheli.

She had to explain to staff that she couldn’t board the flight – despite herself, her daughter and a friend having all their luggage in the plane, which was about to take off.

Staff obliged and it’s reported the plane took off eight minutes late, though BA claim it took off on time.

An airport source told The Sun on Sunday: “Kate was upset and in something of a panic.

“She was polite at all times but explained there was no way she could fly out of the country because she’d miss the funeral.”

The source said: “It was awkward as Kate was checked in and about to board.

“Her bags were in the hold of the jet, so it was quite an effort to retrieve them so close to take-off.”

The Wham! legend’s burial plot is also now under 24 hour security.

The plot, in highgate cemetery, north London, has been cleared of flowers and tidied up ahead of the expected burial.

According to the Daily Star, the cemetery have “ramped up security” as George’s family “fear ghouls could ruin the funeral”.

But it’s still not known if the singer’s own boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, will be allowed to attend.

Fawaz claims he knows nothing about the funeral, after the family excluded him from all discussions.

The grieving partner told The Sun: “The funeral? I can’t give you an answer, everything is being kept quiet.”

The Wham! star’s cousin, Andros Georgiou, has said that Fawaz is banned from attending the funeral because the Michael family “hate him”.

Georgiou said: “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.”

According to a coroner, the singer’s death was caused by dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.

It was previously claimed that he had died due to drug related issues, which was ruled out by the coroner.
