Pop superstar, George Michael was found dead in bed by his boyfriend on Christmas Day, but over a week later there is still mystery around what caused the former Wham frontman to die.
The 53-year-old singer was found dead at his Oxfordshire home by his boyfriend Fadi Fawaz with early reports saying heart failure was the cause of death. George Michael’s publicist stated:
However, a first post mortem has proven to be inconclusive, which fed into rumors that the singer was hooked on heroin. Reports said that George had been “battling a spiraling heroin addiction” and had even been treated for an overdose.
However, a family source denied the gossip, saying:
The mystery deepened when a series of tweets were released by Fadi, who had been dating George since 2009. The series of messages claimed that George Michael had committed suicide:
However, the tweets were later deleted and the Twitter account shut down, as Fawaz later told the press:
Fawaz claims that he was with George on Christmas Eve but says he had spent the night sleeping in his car, claiming:
We’re not sure about you, but we think there are a lot of questions here…
Why did Fawaz sleep in his car and leave George alone at home?
Who hacked Fawaz’s Twitter account, and why?
Was George really suicidal, and why did he skip going to midnight mass at church like he did on Christmas Eve the year before?
