Fadi Fawaz was the one to discover George Michael’s body, and he’s now revealed what happened in the lead up to his death.
Fawaz, 46, a Lebanese-Australian celebrity hairdresser has revealed that the singer died alone because he’d fallen asleep in his car that night.
George Michael’s boyfriend had previously said he’d stayed with the singer all weekend, discovering the 53-year-old on the Sunday morning, but has now explained the pair spent the night apart on Christmas eve.
Fawaz said of that tragic night: ‘I never saw him. I fell asleep in my car and I never saw him that night. The police know everything. That’s the most important thing.’
It’s not clear why he slept in his car.
The 46-year-old also addressed a series of tweets sent from his account that claimed George Michael had taken his own life.
One of the tweets read: ‘The only thing George wanted is to DIE. He tried numbers of time to kill himself many times…’
He told the Mirror that a hacker was behind the messages: ‘I did not send those tweets.
‘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.’
It’s not known yet exactly when George Michael’s funeral will take place but it’s thought there are two memorials planned for January.
