Giving fresh insight into his relationship with lover Fadi Fawaz, new reports claim George Michael tried on several occasions to break up with his partner of several years in the months leading up to his death.
While Fadi himself describes their relationship as ‘very complicated’, sources close to the pop star tell The Sun that despite trying to cut ties with his boyfriend, George’s kind nature meant he continually found himself back in his lover’s arms.
‘On more than one occasion George told Fadi he no longer wanted to see him, but each time they would find themselves back in touch,’ a family source tells the paper.
‘George was so kind and generous, but he said to me many times that his biggest weakness was he could never say no to anything — sex, drugs — he had that sort of personality.
‘In many ways he was quite a vulnerable person, because he always said yes. He never stood his ground.’
Believed to have been estranged for around 18 months, it was Fadi, 40, who found George’s lifeless body in bed on Christmas Day.
The exact cause of the 53-year-old’s death is still unknown, with the initial autopsy proving to be inconclusive.
