Michael was found dead in his Oxfordshire home by his longtime boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, on Christmas Day. He was 53.
The late singer’s manager, Michael Lippman, told The Hollywood Reporter that there was “no foul play whatsoever” in regards to the death and that Michael passed away “peacefully” of a heart failure.
