The iconic musician of hit songs ‘Faith’, ‘Last Christmas’, ‘Freedom’, and ‘Careless Whisper’ died on Christmas morning.

George Michael's boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, has said he will ‘never forget’ the heart-breaking moment he discovered George Michael had passed away. The celebrity hair stylist was linked to Michael for a number of years but their relationship was always kept private.

Fadi said he found Michael ‘lying peacefully in bed’ when he visited on Christmas morning.

He tweeted: ‘I will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning.. I will never stop missing you.’

He also told The Daily Telegraph: ‘We were supposed to be going for Christmas lunch. I went round there to wake him up and he was just gone, lying peacefully in bed. We don't know what happened yet.

‘Everything had been very complicated recently, but George was looking forward to Christmas, and so was I.

‘Now everything is ruined. I want people to remember him the way he was. He was a beautiful person.’
