Police exclude George Michael's boyfriend from any involvement in singer's death

George Michael's on-off lover Fadi Fawaz has been cleared by police of any involvement in the singer's death.

The Careless Whisper singer died at his home in Oxfordshire, England, on Christmas Day (25Dec16), aged 53. 
Fawaz, the singer's on-off boyfriend, found Michael's body in bed at his home, and messages later posted on the hairstylist's Twitter account suggested the singer may have committed suicide. But he later insisted he was not responsible for the tweets and blamed hackers for spreading the false rumours.

Fawaz was quizzed by Thames Valley Police last month (Jan17) as they attempted to put together the final hours of the star’s life. 

Now a spokesman for the police force has reportedly told Britain's The Mail on Sunday newspaper that they do not suspect any foul play in the star’s death.

A spokesman told the news outlet: "We are satisfied that there are no suspicious circumstances," clearing Fadi of any involvement.

Fawaz, who had been in a relationship with George for four years, was reportedly quizzed regarding fears George died from a drugs overdose. He previously told reporters he slept in his car on the night of George's death - but said police "know everything".

A source told The Sun: "Officers from the Major Crime Unit have begun asking questions of those who were in the area at the time George died and the day before.

"They want to build up an idea of what George's last seven days were like and who came and went."

Meanwhile, the singer's funeral has been delayed as head coroner Darren Salter is reportedly still awaiting the results of toxicology tests which are needed to determine the cause of the singer's death. The toxicology tests were ordered after the initial postmortem examination proved "inconclusive", to see if drugs played any part in Michael's death. Thames Valley police told The Mail On Sunday the test results are expected to be revealed "imminently".

Culture Club to reunite for one-off London gig

Boy George's band Culture Club will perform a one-off show in London, England in December (16).

The British band, made up of Boy George, Mikey Craig, Roy Hay and Jon Moss, will take to the stage at The SSE Wembley Arena on 14 December (16) to perform hits from their albums Kissing to Be Clever, Colour By Numbers and latest record Tribes.

The four-piece band which was formed by Boy George - real name George O' Dowd - in 1981, achieved Top 10 chart placings in the United States with singles like Do You Really Want To Hurt Me, Karma Chameleon, Miss Me Blind and I’ll Tumble 4 Ya.

However they split in 1986 after Boy George, who was also struggling with a drug habit at the time, and drummer Jon Moss fell out. They have reunited a number of times over the years, with their last comeback occurring in 2014.

They have also been touring the U.S., with band member Mikey speaking to The Washington Times earlier this month (Sep16) about life on the road.

"It’s been much better than I could have imagined. At the start of the tour, I thought, 'My goodness, are we gonna get through all this? Will George’s voice hold out? Will I hold out?'", he laughed. "It’s been great for George in particular. His voice is getting stronger as we go, plus his interaction with the fans is really nice as well. He humanises himself much more than before."
