George Michael’s lover Fadi Fawaz says his Twitter account was hacked; tweets went out from Fawaz’s account claiming Michael committed suicide.
Fawaz previously stated that he found Michael’s body on Christmas morning.
The series of tweets read: “I was in a relationship with George Michael till I found him dead in bed.
“We loved each other very much and were together almost 24 hours a day.”
The messages were later deleted and the account was closed.
Mr Fazaz told Mirror Online: “I am shocked with what’s going on with the Twitter thing. My Twitter account has been hacked and closed.
“It’s a bit scary to be honest. I did not send those tweets. I woke up at 11.30am to the news. I am not going to worry about these things.”
