Wham! bandmate furious at George Michael’s ex boyfriend Kenny Goss for discussing sex life

George Michael’s former boyfriend revealed his desperate attempts to kerb the singer’s drug use in an explosive interview.

Kenn Goss, who dated the singer for 15 years until 2009, says drugs “destroyed” their relationship.

In an interview with The Sun, the ex revealed details of the Wham! singer’s troubles behind closed doors.

He said: “I would find drugs and flush everything down the toilet, thinking: ‘If I just get rid of it he won’t get more’.

“He was absent-minded, so would just think he’d lost them.”

Goss also opened up about Michael’s health – claiming he never believed he’d die young.

Speaking of his declining health, he said: “I don’t think George necessarily thought he’d die young, but every time I looked into his eyes I thought, ‘My God, I’m losing you, what is going on?’.

“When I confronted him, he never denied it, never apologised.

“He was hard on me about drinking, because I developed a problem.”

But one former Wham! star is furious at his public confessions.

Shirlie Holliman (pictured on the right, above) has now criticised Kenny’s comments, labelling them “hurtful”.

Shirlie, who was introduced to husband Martin Kemp by Goerge Michael, said: “It’s been a very sad week and so hurtful for George Michael’s family, friends and fans, he would appreciate, all that matters is his music.”

She also went on to ‘like’ a string of Twitter posts criticising the gay icon’s ex boyfriend.

it’s just weeks since the singer was buried in Highgate Cemetery in north London in a small ceremony attended by close friends and family.

His most recent boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, was reportedly banned by from the wake, after the funeral service, by the star’s family.

The family reportedly refused to let him attend, forcing him to be taken away in a blacked out car before other guests.

Kenny said: “I’ve no idea why Fadi would choose to be late.

“I didn’t say anything to him and he didn’t come to the wake.”

The resting spot of the late legend, at Highgate cemetery in north London, will not be open to fans.

The grave is positioned in a private area of the London resting place, and will not be accessible to the general public.

A tall barrier was placed around the gravestone after the singer’s funeral service on March 29, blocking the space from view.

His burial plot, in Highgate Cemetry, north London, is next to his late mother.

Former bandmate Andrew Ridgely was among those at the wake, along with Spice Girl Geri Horner and model Kate Moss.
