George Michael’s lover Fadi Fawaz has been spotted leaving the late star’s property amid reports he has been frozen out of funeral plans.
The celebrity hairdresser – who reportedly said he “everything is being kept quiet” about the funeral and that he didn’t no any details – looked composed as he was pictured in Regents Park.
He was seen carrying a bottle of water and headphones, and it comes after he appeared to vanish from social media.
It’s not the first time Fadi has left the Twittersphere.
He recently reactivated his account following the revelation George had died of natural causes, writing to his followers “f*** you”.
He later composed a second tweet which read “the truth is out”, accompanied by a photo of the couple.
The Wham! singer passed away ten weeks ago on Christmas Day , but it was only this week that a coroner revealed that he died of natural causes.
But George ‘s grieving relatives have decided to keep details about the ceremony close to their chests as they don’t want fans turning up – and Fadi has also been cut out of the planning.
He told The Sun: “I can’t tell you about the funeral. Everything is being kept quiet. It’s all so strange.
“It should have happened a long time ago. This has gone on and on. I was in the middle of it all. But I really don’t know anything.”
According to the Daily Star , a representative for the legendary star refused to comment on “private matters” when asked if funeral details would be released soon.
And the Highgate Cemetery in north London – where George is expected to be buried alongside his mother Lesley – also refused to give an indication about his funeral.
A recorded telephone message at the cemetery said: “If you’re phoning about George Michael, I’m sorry we haven’t got any information for you.”
George’s body has been kept by the coroner since his death at his home in Oxfordshire in December after the initial post-mortem came back as “inconclusive.”
Following extensive testing – including toxicology – it was announced on Monday by the coroner’s office that the singer died of dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.
After the results were revealed, Fadi – who found the singer’s body over the festive season – said he is “really happy” the truth is finally out.
He said: “I got a call [about the ruling]. I felt happy, now that he can rest peacefully.
“Now I can celebrate the life, the love we had, and move on as one. Let him rest. I don’t know what is yet to happen. I keep the happy times just him and me.
“I have always kept it between him and I. I have managed for five years not to be famous. I would like to go back to that.”
George passed away at the age of 53 after his heart failed to pump blood around his body due to an enlarged left ventricle, while his liver was also clogged up with fat.
