The former partner of George Michael has announced he is selling off the late singer’s possessions because he needs the money.

Fadi Fawaz, who was with the Wham! star from 2011 until his death on Christmas Day 2016, posted a string of messages on Twitter in which he suggested he was struggling financially.

“Goerge Micheal [sic] items for sale if you interested please let me know,” he wrote.

“It’s a way so I can survive till we solve the problems with his family and lawyer. Since I’m left with no help and since no one is human anymore.”

Hair stylist Fawaz, who still lives in the “Careless Whisper” singer’s north London home, continued: “I am done with being respectful towards George Michael or the rest.

“I will fight for my right from George Michael till the last day of my life. And no I won’t get a job.”

Fawaz’s comments come less than a week after he opened up about the day he found Michael dead at his home 16 months ago.

In an emotional letter posted on Twitter, he said: “Since I saw you last time a lot has happened. Xmas Day I went to wake you up to go for Xmas lunch in Highgate but u were dead (can you flicking believe that).”

“From that very first moment the world rose from death and pointed their fingers at me…I was all alone…they even accused me I [sic] had something to do with your death.”

He added: “They stopped all of the support I got from your team. I even got denied to our home [sic] in Goring where they even packed my clothes and sent them to me in bin bags.”

The estimated value of Michael’s estate is reportedly in excess of £100m.

Fawaz did not state which belongings he intends to sell. PinkNews has contacted him for further comment.
