The shocking tweets, which appeared on his Twitter page this morning; said: “Not sure who that nasty close friend of George (sic) but i was in a relationship with George Michael till i found him dead in bed.

“The only thing George wanted is to die. He tried numbers of times to kill himself many times and finally he managed.
“We loved each other very much and were together almost 24 hours a day.”

The posts have since been deleted and the account has been shut down. It is unclear if the account had been hacked, but it was the same account used last week to reveal that he found George dead in bed.

He also posted a tribute to the singer. A tweet posted on Fawaz’s account last night said: “I hate you 2016 from the bottom of my heart”.

It has been revealed that George was in ­extreme despair when he died because the voice that made him a ­superstar had been ruined.


He had lost 20 per cent of his lung capacity after contracting pneumonia in 2011. His plans for a comeback in 2017 had been shattered. 

A close friend of George said: “Losing voice capacity for a man like him was like losing his inner self or his soul.
“Things got so dark and difficult after it hit him. It tipped him over a psychological edge. George would never be the same man again – and more importantly, never be the same singer.

“He needed drugs and alcohol and anything he could get hold of to cope with such a severe loss.

“Doctors performed a tracheotomy to keep his airways open. He recovered, but found it difficult to walk uphill, swim and do the thing he loved most – sing.”


News of George Michael’s state of mind emerged after inconclusive post-mortem results. 

Further tests are planned to determine how he died. Police said the star’s death is still being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.
