George Michael’s Boyfriend Blames ‘Suicide’ Tweets on Hacker

How incredibly cruel.

The late George Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz has reacted with horror to a series of tweets posted to his Twitter account that claimed the singer had committed suicide, denying that he had written them and blaming them on a hacker.

Fawaz’s account has been closed down since the messages were posted on New Year’s Day, just a week after Michael’s death.

“We loved each other very much and we were together almost 24 hours a day..” the tweets claimed. “And finally he managed… he tried numbers of time to kill himself many times… the only thing George wanted is to DIE … not sure who that nasty close friend of George but I was in relationship with george micheal (sic) till I found him dead in bed.”

The five messages appeared in the morning, alleging that the 53 year old singer had died by his own hand when he was discovered on December 25, 2016, and had attempted to kill himself more than once in the past.

“I am shocked with what’s going on with the Twitter thing. My Twitter account has been hacked and closed,” he told the Daily Mirror the following day (Jan. 02, 2017).

“It’s a bit scary to be honest. I did not send those tweets. I woke up at 11.30am to the news. I am not going to worry about these things.”

Maybe Donald Trump can get to the bottom of this one?
