The paper says it has seen emails from Fadi Fawaz, according to whom the singer, 53, died on Christmas Eve, his late mum’s birthday, and not Christmas Day 2016 as was thought.
Fadi claims contradict the official version of events, according to which George Michael’s death was put down to natural causes.
According to Fadi’s e-mails, George Michael killed himself, adding: “It took five attempts.” He lay dead for 24 hours after he killed himself.
“Well let me tell you, George died on his mother’s birthday, so that might answer a few questions. “Not to mention it took five attempts to manage to end his life. I think it’s important for the story.” George’s mum Lesley Harrison was born on December 24, 1938, and died after a cancer battle in 1997.
