George Michael’s family ‘fight to keep his will a secret’
George Michael’s family have successfully managed to keep the late singer’s will a secret.
The chart-topping star died in the early hours of Christmas Day last year (12.25.16), aged 53, and despite the intense interest that has subsequently surrounded his reported £105 million estate, his family have kept the details a secret.
George’s childhood pal Andros Georgiou explained: “The will is all done but the probate is still holding it. Wills are public once read but I think George’s family are trying to stop that.”
Andros also revealed the rumours he’d heard about George’s will, saying that the singer’s ex-boyfriends Fadi Fawaz and Kenny Goss have both been ignored.
However, he also conceded it’s possible that Fadi is handed the keys to the British star’s house in Regent’s Park.
He told The Sun newspaper: “That’s what the delay is. They want it to be sealed, like the toxicology report was after his death.
In terms of the will contents, I heard the Goring house will be sold but Highgate will remain for a while. It’s kind of a base for the family.
“Fadi Fawaz and Kenny Goss are not included in the will. But Fadi may get the house in Regent’s Park just to keep him quiet.”
Fadi has reportedly been living in the house in Regent’s Park since George’s death, which was attributed to natural causes.
Meanwhile, George’s sisters, Yioda and Melanie, recently discussed their heartbreak over George’s death in a message posted on his official website.
They wrote: “This year has been a series of new and tough challenges for those of us close and loyal to Yog, not least of which was steeling ourselves this month to hear ‘Last Christmas’ and ‘December Song’ streaming out of shops, cars, and radios, as they have done for decades, knowing he’s no longer here with us, missing him.
“This Christmas will be hard without him but we know we are not alone in mourning the anniversary of his loss, and that the sadness of our wider family and true friends is shared by many of you.
“Yog, who loved Christmas, and always hoped it would snow ... would want each of you that admired and loved him ... to take a moment, raise a glass, enjoy his music and think of him fondly, making sure to enjoy your time with, and appreciate your family and friends.”
