George Michael’s Boyfriend Speaks Out About His Heartbreaking Death

Pop star George Michael was found dead on Christmas Day in his home. His boyfriend, the person who found him, opened up about the former WHAM! singer's struggle in his last year of life.

Celebrity hairdresser Fadi Fawaz has been dating Michaels since 2011. When Fawaz went to Michael's home to meet him for Christmas lunch, he discovered Michaels dead in his own bed.

"I went round there to wake him up and he was just gone, lying peacefully in bed. We don't know what happened yet," said Fawaz.

Some reports say Michaels had been battling a heroin addiction for the past year. Michaels had long lived an indulgent lifestyle, but the heroin caused several trips to the hospital. " I think it’s amazing he’s lasted as long as he has,” said one insider to 'Telegraph'.

Michael's manager would only report the singer died of cardiac arrest, a common symptom of heroin use. In the past year, Michaels has withdrawn more and more from the limelight.

Neighbors said Michaels appeared to spend Christmas Eve alone, or with his housekeeper. The front yard was decorated with lights that were on, and packages had been delivered, but no guests arrived.

"Everything had been very complicated recently, but George was looking forward to Christmas, and so was I," said Fawaz. "Now everything is ruined. I want people to remember him the way he was - he was a beautiful person."
