The boyfriend of late star George Michael has called for fans to stop being negative online, more than a year on from his death.

Fadi Fawaz, who found the Wham! performer dead on Christmas Day 2016, said he did not want to read “negative opinions”.

The fine art photographer, 44, posted the tweets a week after admitting he was selling a car George Michael bought him.

Referring to the Wham! star’s death, Fawaz wrote online: “I understand George is your idol but I would like you to understand too George was my partner and I saw him as a person,” he wrote.

He added: “please keep your negative opinion about me to yourself and remain a decent person. Thank you”.

Fawaz revealed last week that he was unable to use the car Michael bought him as it brings back too many memories, saying it was “all a bit much to handle”.

Since the death members of Michael’s family have accused him of leaking stories to the press and asking for money, which Fawaz strongly denies.

He wrote on Twitter: “Selling my car that George gave me as Xmas gift ( I will put a picture of it later) so if anyone interested let me know pls. X”

He added: “The reason I’m selling is because of lots of memories in my car with George listening to our favourite songs him singing in the car ect ect ect . It’s all a bit much to handle x”

He also mentioned that there is a “surprise” that comes with the car, but that is yet to be revealed.

The sale comes 10 days after he opened up to the realities of life without his late boyfriend.

“A lot happened my dear I became a monster they denied our love our relationship and accused me of so much sh*t and I think somehow you should know what’s been happening since you were gone,” he wrote to his 28,000 Twitter followers.

In another post he wrote: “Can you believe they even accused me of taking your life away and for the next 3 month till the truth came out the person behind the counter would give me the change and not touch my hand”.

He added: “The person you loved and made number 1 in your life became a leech a liar a monster and almost homeless the person who loved you very much and who you were number 1 to”.

Fawaz has hit out at tabloid rumours repeatedly – playing down reports he claimed were due to be published that he has found love again.

“The Media seem to be spreading romour from tomorrow that I have found love again and apprently [sic] very much in love with a new partner,” he wrote online.

“I just want to make it clear its all untrue, none of it is the truth and its all lies lies lies.”

He later added: “Please don’t believe anything you read specially tomorrows news.

“All the made up stories about me since day one are getting a bit out of line and very ridiculous. love from me x”.

Despite warning followers not to believe the stories about his love life, there was no evidence the stories were actually published.

He later added: “Sorry for the delay I was getting my facts right.”

The Lebanese born photographer has struggled to come to terms with the death of his boyfriend, repeatedly posting heart-breaking messages about how much he misses Michael.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror Fawaz revealed that left London for Christmas – haunted by the reminders of time with his celebrity partner.

He was said to be “wounded” with grief and headed off to the countryside.

“It makes me so sad, I just want it over and done with.”
