It’s been one year since George Michael died, yet the famed singer’s grave remains unmarked! In exclusive images obtained by RadarOnline.com, the Wham! frontman’s final resting place doesn’t even have a simple headstone! It’s a tragic testament to the artist who sold over 115 million records worldwide before his sudden death on Christmas Day 2016.
A coroner ruled the 53-year-old, who was found dead by boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, died of “natural causes.”
But a Radar investigation found evidence his degenerate lifestyle led to a deadly HIV-positive status.
The “Careless Whispers” singer is buried in a family plot in Highgate Cemetery in north London.
A small plaque — reading: “Dear cousin, Beautiful memories treasured forever of the happy times we spent together” — is its only adornment. Next to him, his mother’s final resting place, boasts a large headstone.
“But there’s just this empty space next to it,” a shocked visitor told Radar. “A year later, that seems very strange.”
Days before Christmas 2017 — just one year after the legend's passing — Michael’s sisters, Melanie and Yioda Panayiotou, posted a message online.
“This Christmas will be hard without him, but we know that we are not alone in our mourning the anniversary of his loss, and that the sadness of our wider family, and true friends, is shared by many of you," they wrote.
As readers know Michael’s death on Christmas Day 2016 at age 53 shocked the world. It was learned that his boyfriend Fawaz had called 911 after he found the singer “cold” and “blue” in his bed in Michael’s London home.
Hairdresser Fawaz, 43, as Radar readers know, was grilled for weeks by authorities over Michael’s untimely death, until police finally issued a statement clearing him of foul play.
A coroner’s report attributed his death to natural causes.
