George Michael‘s boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, is denying claims that he said the late singer had committed suicide.
The hairstylist spoke out after shocking messages that alleged Michael had killed himself surfaced on his personal Twitter account. The tweets, which have since been removed, claimed that “the only thing George wanted is to DIE” and “he tried numbers [sic] of time to kill himself many times… and finally he managed…”
“I am shocked with what’s going on with the Twitter thing,” Fawaz told U.K. paper The Mirror. “My Twitter account has been hacked and closed.”
He continued, “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.”
A a week ago, Fawaz used the social media account to reveal that he was the one who discovered Michael’s body. According to him, he found the 53-year-old dead in bed when he went over to Michael’s Oxfordshire home on Christmas Day.
As previously reported, an autopsy was performed on Michael just four days after his death. The results were deemed “inconclusive” and authorities said more tests are needed to determine the music icon’s official cause of death.
