George Michael’s ex-boyfriend Fadi Fawaz is allegedly ‘squatting’ in the late musician’s London home, despite reported pleas from his family to leave.
Fadi, 45, is said to have lived at the £5million property since George died on Christmas Day in 2016 at the age of 53.
According to The Sun, George’s family have sent legal letters asking Fadi to leave the house, which is situated near Regent’s Park, but he has allegedly ignored the notices as he allegedly now has squatter’s rights.
A source close to the late singer’s family told the publication: ‘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.’
The insider added: ‘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.’
Fadi’s relationship with George’s family is believed to have been strained since the Wham! singer’s unexpected death more than two years ago.
It’s claimed that Fadi is arguing he was given permission to live in the house by George before his death.
In September, Fadi sparked controversy when he shared several social media posts claiming George had tried to kill himself four times.
He also alleged that the Last Christmas singer’s death was caused by suicide.
In the Instagram posts seen by Metro.co.uk at the time, Fadi said: ‘I thought that’s it, he finally did it and I finally saw him dead in his bed. I always begged him not to do this but he was so depressed. All he wanted to do was die. He has tried to kill himself four times whilst in rehab he tried to stab himself 25 times.
‘He never told me how he did it when he was taken for three days to Marylebone. I would say aren’t you glad May 16th didn’t happen, referring to one suicide attempt, and he would say no.’
Metro.co.uk have contacted Fadi’s reps for comment.
