This morning a senior coroner confirmed George Michael died of natural causes. He was found dead on Christmas Eve last year at the age of 53. He died due to a combination of liver and heart problems.
According to Darren Salter, Oxfordshire’s senior coroner:
“Inquiries into the death of George Michael have concluded and the final post mortem report received.
As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further inquiries.
No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”
Michael’s lover Fadi Fawaz became a target for all sorts of tabloid speculation in the wake of the stars’s death. He broke his silence with this string of Tweets today.
