George Michael ‘left none of £98 million fortune to boyfriend Fadi Fawaz’
George Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz and his ex-partner Kenny Goss will not receive any of his £97.6 million fortune, according to reports.
The Sun reported that court paperwork issued on May 30 means Michael’s estate can finally be divided, two-and-a-half years after the Wham! singer’s death.
Michael leaves the majority of his estate to his sisters Yioda and Melanie, and he has left a horse racing stud farm to his father Kyriacos Panayiotou, it’s claimed.
“George was devoted to his dad and sisters, they were always going to be looked after,” a source told The Sun.
Fawaz is reportedly refusing to leave a £5 million house owned by Michael in Regent’s Park which the couple lived in together, despite repeated requests to vacate the property.
Fawaz reportedly believes Michael would have wanted him to stay in the house, despite it not being left to him in the will.
The Sun approached Fawaz at the house for comment on the will, but he opened the door and said: “No way, thank you. Have a lovely night.”
Fawaz was the one to find Michael’s body when he passed away on Christmas Day 2016. It is believed that Michael died of natural causes, but Fawaz later claimed that his death was a suicide.
Beneficiaries include George Michael’s publicist, cousin and best friend
Other beneficiaries of the will include Michael’s publicist Connie Filippello, his best friend and producer David Austin, his cousin Alex Georgiou and his former personal assistant Michelle May, The Sun claimed.
It was reported that his artwork, antiques and John Lennon’s piano will go to The Mill Charitable Trust, which was set up by Michael in 2009 to make donations to various causes.
Michael and Goss were together for 13 years before splitting up in 2009, but they reconciled before the singer’s death.
Michael and hairdresser Fawaz were a couple from 2011 until he passed away in 2016.
Michael’s publicist Filippello declined to comment on Michael’s partners being left out of his will.
