Fadi Fawaz said he made the terrible discovery after arriving at the musician’s home to wake him ahead of a planned Christmas Day lunch.
George Michael was born 53 years ago in London and he rose to stardom as a member of a music band called Wham, along with longtime friend, Andrew Ridgeley.
The man with a reputation for self-indulgence donated to charities involved with helping children, cancer victims and AIDS sufferers.
He was also remembered for other acts of kindness – volunteering at a homeless shelter and giving a stranger money for IVF treatment after seeing her on Deal or No Deal.
