The boyfriend of late singer George Michael has lashed out at the icon.

Fadi Fawaz was with Michael until he found the star dead on Christmas Day 2016, but last week was revealed to be receiving nothing in the singer’s will.

Writing on Twitter yesterday (August 4), Fawaz, 45, said: “I hate you George” before embarking on a confusing rant seemingly aimed at Michael.

He said: “Your power proved to me you could make a Town not react to loud noises at odd hours.

“Your power proved to me you could turn friends, family and strangers into liars, cowards and very much inhuman and get this mega power can’t make or keep someone KIND or LOVING. And I can not wait to prove that to you.”

Fawaz ended the message by signing off: “With all my hate, Fadi.”

In another post, he added: “How can I get disappointed with someone ended thier [sic] own life.

“If anyone can do that to themself They can do worse things to others.”

Last month, Fawaz hit the headlines when he claimed that Michael’s death was actually a suicide.

The Wham! singer’s death was not treated as suspicious.

The results of a post mortem were never made public at the request of the family, but it was believed that Michael died of natural causes due to a combination of dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.

His then-boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, who initially said he found Michael “lying peacefully in bed,” rowed back on that statement in emails, writing: “I’m sick and tired of people asking me what happened on Christmas Day.

“Well let me tell you, George died on his mother’s birthday, so that might answer a few questions.

“Not to mention it took five attempts to manage to end his life. I think it’s important for the story.”

Fawaz claimed that Michael died by suicide

The birthday of Michael’s mother was Christmas Eve, December 24 – one day before the singer’s believed date of death.

Tweets claiming George wanted to die also appeared on Fawaz’s Twitter page in January 2017, though he denied sending them.

The tweets had claimed: “The only thing George wanted is to DIE. He tried numbers of times to kill himself many times and finally he managed.

“We loved each other very much and were together almost 24 hours a day.”

A day later Fawaz insisted that his account had been hacked, saying: “I am shocked with what’s going on with the Twitter thing. My Twitter account has been hacked and closed.

“It’s a bit scary to be honest. I did not send those tweets. I woke up at 11.30am to the news.”

But in September 2017 Fawaz described claims that the singer took his own life as “evil”.

Sharing one account of Michael’s alleged suicidal state, he wrote: “This is so crazy. This is evil. Who is ever done this is someone with so much hate inside them that makes me feel sorry for.”

At one point, it was believed that Fawaz was working on a tell-all book based on his life with George Michael. However it is unclear whether the project is still in the works, after claims he had been offered money to stay silent.
