The family of the late George Michael is reportedly attempting to evict his boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, from the singer's London home. Fawaz and the musician dated for four years before Michael's death in 2016 and has stayed in their home in the years since, but is now being forced out.
A source close to Michael's family told The Sun that "Fadi is being a real pain about all this. He has refused to leave despite several letters and requests in the last 18 months. He is blanking them out and it appears he now has squatters rights. It's been going on for such a long time that it's hard to know what to do next. The lawyers are seeing what can be done ... It would be a lot easier if Fadi just upped sticks and left."
Fawaz, who discovered Michael's body the day of his passing, was left nothing in the late legend's will. Last July, Michael's cousin Andros Georgiou revealed that Fawaz was hoping to contest the will. "Fawaz is threatening to go all the way to High Court but I think the estate will have to settle with him. He's been offered PS500,000 and I think the estate should pay a couple of million to get rid of him." This followed a strange Twitter thread in which Fawaz appeared to claim that he would be selling items from his former boyfriend's estate, as well as his own story, though he later claimed that his account had been hacked and the tweets were fake.
Fawaz has also claimed that Michael was addicted to GHB and had made four suicide attempts before his death, including stabbing himself 25 times during a stint in rehab.
