Twitter Hack: Fadi Fawaz has not claimed that George Michael committed suicide
The now deleted tweets proclaimed, “We loved each other very much and we were together almost 24 hours a day..And finally he managed… he tried numbers of time to kill himself many times… the only thing George wanted is to DIE.”
The tweets continued, “Not sure who that nasty close friend of George but I was in relationship with george micheal (sic) till I found him dead in bed.”
However, Fawaz released the following statement to Us Weekly, saying, “I am shocked with what’s going on with the Twitter thing. My Twitter account has been hacked and closed. It’s a bit scary to be honest. I did not send those tweets. I woke up at 11.30am to the news. I am not going to worry about these things.”
Last week, Fawaz revealed he was the one who discovered his late boyfriend’s dead body in his Oxfordshire home on Christmas Day.
“ITs a xmas i will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning..” Fawaz tweeted. “I will never stop missing you xx.”
The Wham! frontman’s publicist confirmed his death via the BBC.
“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peaceful at home over the Christmas period,” the statement read.
“The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”
One mourner also tied a rainbow flag to one of the wing mirrors in memory of George’s support for gay rights.
One note read: “He was a great talent, person and community member.”
Another fan wrote: “Rest in peace. You are a beautiful soul who shone a bright light in this world.”
Since George Michael’s passing it has been claimed that Kenny Goss, the star’s ex, made a desperate bid to save the singer’s life in the weeks leading up to his death.
The pair dated for 13 years before they broke up, but the pair became friends again.
A friend close to the pair told The Mirror that the Texan art dealer became increasingly worried about the singer and flew back to the UK to be with him.
They revealed: “The last few months had been chaotic and troubling for George. He had become increasingly isolated and depressed.”
The source also claimed that Kenny “knew George was smoking and drinking heavily” and that the singer was “depressed about his weight”.
They added that Kenny had got in touch with his team and, while they had tried to sort something, “it became increasingly clear in was a losing battle”.
“He knew things weren’t right with George and he also came over to say goodbye.”
