The partner of George Michael declares that any New Year’s Day tweets attached to him claiming the pop legend killed himself are fraudulent.
On Christmas Day Fadi Fawaz found the star dead in bed, at Michael’s Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire home, when Fawaz tried to wake him. An autopsy on the 53-year-old proved ‘inconclusive.’ On Friday (30 December) Thames Valley Police announced ‘further tests will now be carried out’ to discover the cause of death.
It will take several weeks until the results of the tests return. The police added that while Michael’s death is still unexplained, it isn’t being treated as suspicious.
According to The Independent, a number of Twitter messages appeared under Fawaz’s name claiming his partner killed himself.
‘I was in a relationship with George Michael till I found him dead in bed,’ one tweet said.
‘The only thing George wanted is to DIE,’ said another. ‘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.’
The messages were eventually deleted and the account shut down. Fawaz told the Mirror Online the account was hacked.
‘I am shocked with what’s going on with the Twitter thing,’ Fawaz said. ‘My Twitter account has been hacked and closed.’
‘It’s a bit scary to be honest,’ he continued. ‘I did not send those tweets. I woke up at 11.30am to the news. I am not going to worry about these things.’
The closed account has been used by Fawaz to discuss Michael’s death.
‘It’s a Xmas I will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning,’ Fawaz wrote on Boxing Day. ‘I will never stop missing you.’
A day ago, on Instagram, Fawaz posted the following:
