George Michael’s ex-boyfriend hints star was secretly buried before anyone noticed

George Michael has already been buried, a new post by his ex-boyfriend suggests.

Fadi Fawaz, the star’s late boyfriend, shared a cryptic tweet seeming to infer the funeral had already taken place.

Mr Fawaz posted a report detailing plans for George’s private funeral, writing in the caption: ‘9 days ago.’

It’s prompted fans to ask if the star was buried more than a week ago, as questions surrounding the burial continue to swirl.

One fan wrote in reply: “What 9 days ago? Really I don’t want to know everything… but is it about the article or funeral? I’ve been a fan for 32 years..”

Another wrote: “sir can’t u see that we r suffering? Why don’t u write clearly! Like if his loss wasn’t enough & that we have to endure all this!! [sic]”

The star was confirmed as having died from “natural causes”, despite months of tabloid speculation about drug abuse, during which time he couldn’t be buried.

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

The Careless Whisper singer’s plot was cleared of flowers and leaves several weeks ago ready for his burial.

24-hour security now has been surrounding the plot in a bid to protect it from vandals or over zealous fans.

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

His burial plot, which he bought years ago, in north London, is next to his late mother.

Michael’s beloved mother, Lesley, died exactly 20 years ago in 1997.

The star had always intended to be buried next to her, buying the burial plot ready for when the occasion came around.

A source told the Mirror: “Lesley was George’s world so it is fitting that they should now be together.”

They added: “George would always make a big deal out of Mother’s Day.

“He loved her so much and he would spend a lot of time talking to her there.

“The cemetery has a very special place in his heart.”

Now his £105m fortune is now set to be split up between loved ones and charities.

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.

Meanwhile 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.
