As Radar readers know, Michael's childhood friend Andros Georgiou recently told The Sun that Fawaz is "not welcome" at the ceremony.

"Heaven help him if he turned up. Fadi has not been invited to the funeral — the family hate him," said the 54-year-old, who is not biologically related to Michael but was so close the star called him cousin.

Georgiou also slammed hairstylist Fawaz over his 911 call after he discovered the "Careless Whisper" singer dead.

As Radar has reported, in the shocking recording, Fawaz, who has said he slept in his car outside the singer's home in Goring, Oxfordshire, on Christmas Eve, tells the 911 operator, "He's cold and blue."

Fawaz also said he'd been trying to wake Michael, 53, for an hour. "He's very stiff," Michael's boyfriend, 43 told the emergency dispatcher.

Fawaz has been questioned by the police in their investigation of Michael's death but they recently released a statement clearing him of any foul play.
