    George Michael's lover Fadi Fawaz is said to be demanding a multi-million pound payout from the singer's fortune and wants to stay in the star's £5million house.
    The 43-year-old does not want to give up the lavish lifestyle gifted to him by the pop legend, and a source said he is seeking to make sure he gets huge sums of money when the will is eventually settled.
    His demands are understood to include remaining at the house in Regent's Park after his hopes to make millions from a tell-all book were dashed when publishers only offered him £50,000.

    Fadi Fawaz, pictured leaving George Michael's funeral, is said to have made the demands after his plans for a tell-all book fell flat

    A childhood friend of the Wham! singer, Andros Georgiou, told the Sun on Sunday the bold bid came after Fawaz touted the idea of the book around the publishing industry.
    It is thought when it failed to generate the enthusiasm he was hoping for, the hairdresser, who was with George Michael for seven years, went after his former lover's estate in a bid to hold on to his life of luxury.

    Georgiou, 54, told the paper: 'This is not something his family ever imagined they would have to deal with.

    'But Fadi has made no secret of how much he wants money.'
    Fawaz found George Michael dead on Christmas Day in Goring, Oxfordshire, but the circumstances surrounding his death have been clouded with uncertainty.
    The star's boyfriend was vocal on Twitter until earlier this month when he deleted his account having posted a cryptic message reading: 'Please forgive me for what I am going to do.'

    Georgiou told The Sun: 'In light of his demands, that request for forgiveness makes sense.'
    It comes after it appeared George Michael's family attempted to freeze Fawaz out of the funeral.
    He had to race to attend the ceremony after finding out about it at the last minute.
    The 43-year-old was then said to have been refused entry to the wake as emotions continued to run high between the hairdresser and the family of Michael.
    Meanwhile, the singer's former lover Kenny Goss was seemingly welcomed with open arms, attending both the funeral and the wake.
    Fawaz had been pictured going for a walk at about midday near Michael's home in Regent's Park.
    He was asked by a photographer if he was going to the funeral, causing him to rush back to his house and change into a black suit.
    He later attended Highgate Cemetery in North London as the final guest to arrive, where he paid his respects before making his way home, as other guests attended the wake, The Sun reported.
    Fadi Fawaz has yet to comment on the claims.

    He wasn't even dating George at the time of his death, nor living in that house. He's money grubbing scum.

    Watch this is you can. It was, I can't describe it well enough. Profoundly personal and very deep. There are times when you just believe that a well known artist is telling the truth. Just a few musicians and producers spinning a George record and talking about him. George did the narration. He talked about not coming out, Freddy Mercury, and his first lover who died. He may be right about one thing he said (when asked what kind of legacy he wants to leave). That the music world will probably never see the types of artists such as himself, Madonna and Prince, meaning the superstar singer songwriter that paid their dues and wasn't manufactured.

    George Michael: Freedom | SHOWTIME


    Before he died on Dec. 25, 2016, George Michael was unknowingly *prepping what would become his final act: the 90-minute documentary George Michael: Freedom, which airs Oct. 21 on Showtime.

    “George was editing the film on the 23rd of December,” recalls David Austin, Michael’s *manager and the project’s co-director. “We’d just had Nile [Rodgers] over in London at the house. And then that was it, really. Christmas arrived.”

    Michael, who succumbed to heart and liver-related issues at 53, was one of the most renowned pop artists as both a member of Wham! and later as a solo artist, selling an estimated 13.3 million copies on his own, according to Nielsen Music. The film, which now serves as the British star’s last testimony, focuses on the period leading up to Michael's ambitious 1990 solo album, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, and his subsequent legal clash with Sony to be released from his recording contract.


    Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, Elton John and all five supermodels from the groundbreaking “Freedom! ’90” music video, including Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford, recall personal memories of the singer, while comedian friends James Corden and Ricky Gervais offer playful commentary.

    The original idea behind the doc, says Austin, was to help promote the rerelease of the classic album (out Oct. 20), aided by the discovery in the Sony archives of 75,000 feet of 35mm footage shot by director David Fincher for the “Freedom! ’90” video. But as the project grew in scope, “it just started snowballing,” continues Austin, “and became a much bigger *picture as George decided to fill in a lot of gaps.”


    He remembers finding a “tiny ice-cooler bag in a cupboard” that contained a forgotten stash of camcorder cassettes filled with home movies of Michael’s Brazilian partner Anselmo Feleppa, who died of AIDS-related complications in 1993. Austin says he “trod very carefully” when it came to their very private relationship, “because I didn’t know how much [of the material] George would want to commit to the film.” It’s fitting that he did, as the story becomes the doc’s emotional heart.

    For Freedom, Michael, who rarely did interviews, sat for a two-and-a-half hour conversation with BBC radio host Kirsty Young; his *startling, poignant candor narrates throughout. Near the film’s end, a different interviewer asks the singer to essentially write his own epitaph. “I’d like to be *remembered as one of those last kind of big pop stars, in a sense that there was a certain glamour to it,” says Michael. “But really, it’s just the songs, and I hope that people think of me as someone who had some kind of integrity.” The singer smiles shyly and adds: “Very unlikely.”

    I saw it. It was a bit of a hagiography IMO as it was made by George himself. Liam Gallagher was grunting on it and Tracey Emin was being an embarrassing fangirl. There were some intelligent observations from Mary J. Blige and Stevie Wonder, though.

    George Michael's sisters and his former hairdresser lover are embroiled poisonous legal row over the late Wham! star's £105 MILLION fortune


    • The singer's family and his final lover are enmeshed in a truly poisonous war
    • On one side of this conflict are George's devoted, publicity-averse sisters
    • Squaring up to these grieving relatives is George's boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, 44, a former hairdresser of Lebanese origin

    By ALISON BOSHOFF FOR THE DAILY MAIL
    PUBLISHED: 22:03, 13 April 2018 | UPDATED: 00:49, 14 April 2018

    It was Fadi Fawaz (left), George Michael's (right) lover from 2011, who discovered the singer's body in 2016

    Both sides may claim to be driven by a deep love of the late George Michael. But, we can reveal, the singer's family and his last lover are enmeshed in a truly poisonous war over his reported £105 million fortune.
    The full extent of the bitterness between the two parties has only just become apparent. On one side are George's devoted, publicity-averse sisters, 55-year-old Melanie and Yioda, 57, as well as his cousin Alex Georgiou, for decades George's PA and driver. They remain fiercely protective of their beloved 'Yog', their endearing nickname for the star, whose real name was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou.
    Squaring up to these grieving relatives is George's boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, 44, a former hairdresser of Lebanese origin. It was Fadi, his lover from 2011, who discovered the singer's body in 2016. I am told he has become a major impediment in the legal process surrounding George's will and is thus preventing his fortune from being properly handed out.
    While George's family remain stoic in their grief, Fadi has launched a series of vitriolic attacks on the late star's inner circle via social media. Last week he described them as 'savages, deadly creatures' and he has made barely coded threats about what he might do if provoked.
    You might wonder what on earth Fadi, who once counted the likes of singer Katherine Jenkins among his hairdressing clients, has to moan about. He now says he is a fine art photographer and is living free of charge in one of George's 'spare' London homes, a £6 million three-bedroom mews property just off Regent's Park. But he has many complaints and all of them, it seems, are about how he has been unfairly portrayed and about money.

    Yet with no obvious income and no known legal right to remain in the house, Fadi appears to be on very shaky ground with his continued residency of George's home. It seems he is desperately trying to cling on while, I'm told, George's family very much want him out.
    Such is his penury that Fadi recently sold a Range Rover said to have been a gift from George, and he says he can't even afford to feed himself. 'The icon's partner still struggles to buy milk and water,' he said in one self-pitying post on Twitter this week.
    He also now claims that after his partner's death, George's inner circle stopped his credit cards and removed his possessions from George's country house in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
    However, sources close to the George Michael estate say they have only ever treated Fadi with courtesy and generosity


    +7




    On one side are George's devoted, publicity-averse sisters, 55-year-old Melanie (pictured left) and Yioda, 57 (pictured right)

    Fadi said, in a stream of pidgin-English Twitter messages bizarrely addressed to his late partner: 'They even accused me I had something to do with your death on the top of that they stopped all my cards . . . I even got denied to our home in Goring where they even packed my clothes and sent them to me in bin bags.'
    Apparently referring to George's inner circle as 'puppies', he continued: 'Basically all the puppies that did anything and everything we wanted turned into savages, deadly creatures.
    'So for the next six months I couldn't even eat they denied my right as a partner as person as human and as a citizen in the world.'
    Last week, Fadi posted a picture of a note left by bailiffs, who tried to repossess some furniture because he could not pay a traffic fine, with the message: 'Darling they have come to take your furniture coz I couldn't effort [afford] the fine. But don't worry I didn't open the door for them.'
    Such lamentations are in complete contrast to the behaviour of George's family — and things between them are now so bad that a source who knew George well told me he believes the singer's family want to evict Fadi from the Regent's Park house.
    If they have the right to do so, why, you might wonder, haven't they done so already? After all, George has been dead for 16 months and his family have apparently long thought that Fadi, who has denied having a past as a porn star, was a mere footnote in comparison with the two great loves of George's life, Texan businessman Kenny Goss, from whom he split in 2011, and Brazilian Anselmo Feleppa, who died of an Aids-related haemorrhage in 1993.
    The answer may be that the family are desperate to avoid a scene.

    I don't know anything about George's personal life nor who he was dating before he died. It sounds to me like his family was close to him throughout his life and would have known who he was or wasn't dating. Legally, it sounds like this guy doesn't have much, if any, ground. I also can't stand the whole, "I can't feed myself I'm so poor, etc" when there is nothing stopping him from going out and getting a job.

    I couldn't post the whole article but apparently the family are worried because he is allegedly writing a book and sitting on unreleased music.

    Buddy, if you were anything more than a time filling fuck then you would have been remembered in George's Will. You weren't, so get the fuck over it and go find yourself another rich, lonely man to leech off, while you've still got enough looks and tricks to manage it.

    George Michael's ex Fadi Fawaz 'was handed £250,000 by late singer's family and spent it on holiday to Australia' despite his claims he is 'broke'


    • Fawaz and the late singer's family and legal team have been at odds since death
    • The 44-year-old stylist claimed he was broke and needed to sell Michael's things
    • But it has emerged he was given a £250k living allowance last year by his family
    • Michael and Fawaz were together from 2011 until star's death aged 53 in 2016

    George Michael's family gave his lover Fadi Fawaz £250,000 to live on after the star's death despite his claims he was left broke.
    Fawaz, 44, was in a relationship with the singer from 2011 until his death aged 53 on Christmas Day 2016.
    The two men's families have reportedly been at war over the singer's fortune, with the hair stylist claiming he was chased by bailiffs and was too poor to eat.

    But after taking to social media to slam Michael's inner circle, it has now emerged his family gave his former partner a substantial living allowance, reports the Sunday Mirror.
    Sources have told the paper Fawaz was far from penniless and spent some of his £250,000 allowance on visiting his family in Brisbane, Australia.
    A family insider told the Mirror: 'I feel that what has happened is so wrong to everyone. Our family has been really affected by what's going on.
    'George's family did nothing wrong to Fadi.'
    The source sought to set the record straight, claiming the two sides are not at war.

    A recent social media rant said Fawaz was selling Michael's possessions to make enough money to live on

    It comes after a series of bizarre tweets appeared on Fawaz's Twitter account, which he now claims were not posted by him.
    The social media rant said Fawaz was selling Michael's possessions to make enough money to live on.
    The Australian-born stylist-turned photographer, who still lives in the singer's north London home, wrote he had been left with 'no help' and needed more money to continue to fund his lifestyle.
    He posted: 'George Michael items for sale if you interested please let me know.

    'It's a way so I can survive till we solve the problems with his family and lawyer. Since I'm left with no help and since no one is human anymore.'
    He went on to add: 'I am done with being respectful towards George Michael or the rest...
    'I will fight for my right from George Michael till the last day of my life. And no I won't get a job.'
    The tweets on the account claimed his credit cards had been cut off and his belongings taken away.
    But he later said someone else had posted the tweets, writing afterwards: 'It's all so embarrassing and unfortunate. What's being said on Twitter is madness. None of it is true.'
    Fawaz was the one to find Michael's body in his bed at home in Goring-on-Thames on December 25 2016.
    There were reports the pair had split up in 2015, although these were not confirmed.

    George Michael's (other) ex joins bitter battle for a slice of singer's £105million fortune after the Faith hitmaker left his estate to his two sisters

    The acrimonious battle over George Michael’s £105 million fortune has taken a new turn, as his ex-partner Kenny Goss (right) has decided to challenge the superstar’s will

    The acrimonious battle over George Michael’s £105 million fortune has taken a new turn, as his ex-partner Kenny Goss has decided to challenge the superstar’s will.
    Michael is believed to have left his money and properties – including the house in Oxfordshire where he died of heart and liver disease on Christmas Day 2016 – to his sisters Melanie and Yioda.
    The will is already being disputed by Fadi Fawaz, the Lebanese hairdresser who had a five-year romance with Michael before his death.
    But The Mail on Sunday has learned that Goss, the star’s ex-boyfriend of 15 years, has also instructed lawyers to mount a claim for a substantial portion of the legacy, on the grounds that he supported Michael through his most turbulent years. One friend said: ‘George always told Kenny he would look after him, see him right and that he would not want for anything. They were together for many years and Kenny looked after him so much. He doesn’t feel the will reflects this.’
    Goss last year spoke of how he protected Michael, flushing his drugs down the toilet to try to curb his addiction. He refused to comment last night.

    Earlier this year, Michael’s family were left devastated when Fawaz hired a lawyer in his fight over the fortune. He has also refused to move out of the star’s £6 million three-bedroom Central London mansion and says he is selling off some of the singer’s possessions because he is broke.
