George Michael’s cousin has claimed the late singer’s lover Fadi Fawaz has snubbed his family since his death on Christmas Day.
Andros Georgiou has slammed the celebrity hairstylist – alleging he had a £10,000 a month retainer agreement with the Careless Whisper star – and suggested he doesn’t expect him to be in his will.
“Fadi disappeared after George’s death. He was never a part of the family because he and George just had an arrangement,” he told The Sun on Sunday.
“It was just business, really. But he was still the last person to see George alive, and if he had any respect for the family he would have got in touch.”
It comes after Fadi reportedly said he didn’t know anything about the singer’s funeral and added that “everything is being kept quiet”.
Andros said that Fadi has a number of questions to answer – including why he slept in his car on Christmas Eve – and that he shouldn’t be staying in George’s house in Regent’s Park.
“You would have thought he might have decided, ‘Out of respect, I’ll go somewhere else.’ But he is still living there. Why? He isn’t going to inherit it, not in a million years,” he added, claiming he wouldn’t be named in the will.
Meanwhile, Andros has taken to Facebook on Saturday night to ask fans to being respectful about funeral arrangements, and to thank everyone for the outpouring of support following his death.
“I know so many of you would want to be there to be able to say your last Goodbye,” he wrote as he urged fans not to attend the funeral.
“Please let him be put to rest with as much respect and dignity as possible.”
As well as his impassioned plea, Andros also responded to questions he has been asked and wanted the answers to – including why it took “so long for the Emergency Services to be [called]”.
