George Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz is back at it again. In a Twitter rant, the 46-year-old claimed that the “Careless Whisper” hitmaker, who was found dead at his home in Oxfordshire on December 25, 2016, was HIV positive and died of the illness.
“George Micheal was HIV+,” he tweeted on Wednesday, October 30. “We found out in Vienna after his illness,” he added in another post.
He didn’t stop there and accused the late singer of lying about writing his own songs. “He never wrote his own music he paid other people to make the music for him and pretended it was him. Not so talented after all ..,” he wrote.
George’s family has not responded to Fadi’s claims. Autopsy results listed dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and a fatty liver as the cause of the former Wham! member’s death. Fadi, who works as a celebrity hairdresser, found the singer lifeless on his bed. He was 53 years old at the time of death.
Following Fadi’s explosive claims, Twitter users have blasted him for trash talking his late boyfriend. “Why would you be so hateful to someone you claim to have loved, you should be ashamed of yourself,” one replied to Fadi’s tweet.
“No one believes you so just might as well go away,” another commented on Fadi’s post. A fan wrote back, “Please stop !! Don’t do this to his memory and our love for him.” Another added, “Nothing he says is going to do anything to his memory or our love for GM. He won’t stop. While he is at it, I am sure he will tell us all more unsavory facts of GM’s death. I still would like to know what part FF played-bet he won’t tell us that.”
Back in September, Fadi slammed George in a now-deleted Facebook post after he was kicked out of the singer’s Regent’s Park mews house. Although he was not mentioned in George’s will, he was allowed to stay in the property until the singer’s family made moves to boot him out earlier this year amid concerns about damage to the property. Fadi claimed he has since been homeless and living on the streets.
