Has George Michael’s boyfriend been banned from the singer’s funeral?

George Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, who found the singer in his bed after he passed away at the age of 53, is not welcome at the funeral, reports tabloid The Sun.

“Heaven help him if he turned up. Fadi has not been invited to the funeral — the family hate him,” the publication quoted Michael’s friend Andros Georgiou as saying. The two were so close that they referred to each other as “cousins.”

“They know what he is, and everyone basically thinks he’s a gold-digger. He was never going to be invited — and Yog (George) was planning to get rid of him after Christmas anyway,” he continued.

“Fadi was not really his boyfriend. No one has spoken to him and he just seems to be getting on with his life. It makes my stomach turn.”

Fawaz has taken to Twitter, where he also recently posted some less than uplifting Valentine’s Day tweets, to push back against the allegations.

Michael’s funeral is pending the conclusion of a coroner’s investigation and could happen as late as March.

    Two Spirits (2009)

    Filmmaker Lydia Nibley explores the cultural context behind a tragic and senseless murder. Fred Martinez was a Navajo youth slain at the age of 16 by a man who bragged to his friends that he 'bug-smashed a fag'. But Fred was part of an honored Navajo tradition - the 'nadleeh', or 'two-spirit', who possesses a balance of masculine and feminine traits. Through telling Fred's story, Nibley reminds us of the values that America's indigenous peoples have long embraced.
