This is same "newspaper" that reports endlessly on his other activities - apparently indiscriminately - yet is WAITING to have some one admit it likely he died from AIDS or an AIDS related illness? Honestly - what hypocrisy in promoting his lifestyle without abandon to the detriment of millions yet "respecting the wishes of the family". WTH?
Michael, who has been in a long-term relationship with Kenny Goss since 1996, only admitted his homosexuality in 1998, after he was arrested for "engaging in a lewd act" in a public toilet in a park in Beverly Hills, California.
After being accused of engaging in a sexual act in public in 2006, this time on Hampstead Heath in north London, Michael admitted that he openly cruises for sex. He said this was not an issue in his relationship with Goss.
Michael has also been repeatedly arrested for possession of cannabis. In a 2009 interview with the Guardian, he said he had cut down on his habit, to only "seven or eight" spliffs a day instead of the previous 25.
Update Jan 9/17: Piers Morgan revealed that George Micheals said "he had had sex with about 500 men in the 7 years" before his death in Dec 2016. Oh - ok that is just great - but he was such a great singer/entertainer it doesn't matter he was a prolific homo health risk (sort of like Elton John and his "open" homo marriage?) spreading HIV/AIDS all over? No, "move on please" sez media.
