Australian-born Fadi Fawaz is said to have dated George Michael (pictured together) in 2009, shortly after the star's 13-year relationship with American partner Kenny Goss, whom he spoke of married, ended
Fadi Fawaz reportedly started dating George Michael in 2009 shortly after the star's 13-year relationship with American partner Kenny Goss, whom he spoke of marriage, ended.
Michael's relationship with the Australian-born hairdresser and photographer remained private, and Michael only publicly revealed that he broke up with Goss in 2011 – two years after the event.
He and Fawaz were first pictured together – walking hand in hand – in Switzerland in 2015, when Michael reportedly checked into the world's most expensive rehab clinic, the Kusnacht practice, for £ 190,000 a month.
But tragically, on Christmas Day 2016, Fawaz found the singer dead at his Göring-on-Thames home after trying to wake him up so they could go to lunch.
In a statement at the time, Fawaz said he would "never stop missing Michael".
Fawaz is said to have been marred by the death of another close celeb friend, Boyzone star Stephen Gately, who died of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome in 2009.
After Michael's death, Mr. Fawaz posted a link to a previously unpublished song by the singer called This Kind Of Love, which was reportedly forced to remove it when lawyers on Michael's estate cited intellectual property rights.
Fawaz was by Michael's side during his recent crises.
Fawaz insisted he wasn't the author of tweets – since it was abolished – claiming the star killed himself.
An investigation found that the singer died of natural causes and had advanced cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.
Fawaz later admitted to photographing the late singer's body in his multi-million dollar mansion.
In a video the Daily Star saw, Fawaz reportedly said, "I took a picture of him when he was dead" after spotting him "cold and blue." He also claims that "people are out to get him over the pictures".
The publication claims that Fawaz shared the video on his own Facebook page before deleting it two hours later.
Fawaz was expelled from the singer's £ 97 million will and lived with Michael for three years after his death.

Michael is believed to have left his money and property – including the Oxfordshire house where he died – to his sisters Melanie and Yioda.
In July 2019, Fawaz was arrested by police after standing on the roof of the singer's £ 5 million mansion.
Police and firefighters ran to the property after Fawaz was reportedly seen "topless" at the late star's home in Regent & # 39; s Park – just days after allegedly smashing the property's windows.
He was arrested on suspicion of serious criminal harm and taken away in a police car.
Police said the house had suffered "extensive" damage and needed help from firefighters to clean up any leaking water.

Then, in September 2019, Fawaz's family dismissed claims that he was homeless and depressed in London, claiming he would "be fine".
Fawaz was spotted on the street in Covent Garden claiming he slept poorly after checking out of a Travelodge for £ 49 a night.
But relatives in Australia said they had been reassured by his friends that he was fine.
In a series of disturbing tweets in October 2019, Fawaz claimed Michael was HIV positive and that his late lover had not written any songs of his own.
He wrote: "George Micheal was HIV +".
He followed his unsubstantiated claim and said: "We found out after his illness in Vienna."
Mr Fawaz, whose Twitter bio is simply, "I'll never stop missing you xxx", then claimed, "He never wrote his own music, he paid other people to do the music for him, and all pretended to be. " After all, not that talented .. & # 39;
He followed up the claim with a selfie and insisted that his account had not been hacked, saying that it was he who sent the tweets.
