Fadi fawa(Left) George Michael separated boyfriend, George Michael

The late Careless Whisper hitmaker – who died last month at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxon aged 53 – and his 43-year-old partner had reportedly split up in 2015, although the Wham! band member is believed to have “relied” on Fadi following their break-up

Speaking about the pair’s relationship, a source close to George told The Sun: “George relied on Fadi for many things. “But they had been separated for 18 months.”

Fadi – who embarked on a romance with George in 2009 following his split from his former partner Kenny Goss – revealed that he “never” saw George on Christmas Eve, which was the night the vocalist died in his sleep because he was asleep in his car.

Speaking previously, Fadi said: “I fell asleep in my car and I never saw him that night.” Although Fadi took to social media to pay tribute to the Last Christmas hitmaker, he has since deleted his Twitter account after hackers posted messages on his account claiming the late star killed himself.

George Michael died on Christmas eve(24th December, 2016).

May his soul RIP.
