Fadi Fawaz deletes Twitter after claims George Michael family to give him £5m home to halt book
Fadi Fawaz has disappeared from Twitter after reports is he to be given George Michael’s central London mansion.
The 44-year-old fine art dealer is reportedly considering writing a tell-all tale of his life with the Wham! star.
In a bid to bargain with Fadi, the family has offered him a £5m home in Regent’s Park, central London, to stop publication, according to The Sun.
They have also offered him a £250,000 a year retainer.
Fadi was in a relationship with the star until he found him dead age 53 on Christmas Day 2016.
Since the news broke his Twitter account appears to have been deleted.
A string of tweets asking about the validity of the claims have gone ignored, with many posting critical comments.
He posted a cryptic video to Facebook last night showing him sliding his head against a panelled wall.
The video was captioned only “Leave me with love” and is publicly viewable.
George Michael’s family, who have inherited an estimated fortune of over £100m, initially attempted to kick Fadi out of the multi-million pound home iafter the star’s death.
According to The Sun they now fear the move would harm relations – leading Fadi to pen a tell-all book.
A source told The Sun: “George’s relatives decided a good option is to keep Fadi happy by offering him the house.
“They want him to agree to it and keep quiet about George’s death.”
Earlier this year Andros Georgia, a childhood friend of George, claimed a revealing biography of the couple’s relationship was on the cards.
Georgiou, 54, told the Sun on Sunday: “Fadi is now seeking a significant pay-out of George’s money, and his attempt has come out of the blue.
“This is not something his family ever imagined they would have to deal with.
“But Fadi has made no secret of how much he wants money.
“It has not gone unnoticed that he has been touting around for a book deal and has spoken to several publishers, who have made offers.
“But while he was expecting to make a million pounds, he’s probably looking at £50,000.
“That is not going to keep up the lavish life he lived alongside George for very long – and I’m sure he can now see his comforts disappearing.”
Fadi has reportedly struggled for money since his other half passed away, writing online about his “hell” since the death.
The 44-year-old has been embroiled in arguments ever since the singer’s death, but staunchly denies selling stories on his late boyfriend.
Fawaz wrote on Twitter earlier this year: “Everything stopped and six months later the icon partner still struggles to buy milk and water six months later. That’s is the truth (sic).”
