George Michael's Cause Of Death Has Finally Been Revealed

George Michael’s boyfriend has today hit out at a coroner after it as revealed the star died of natural causes.

An announcement has stated that the 53-year-old Wham! star died from a disease of the heart muscle and fatty liver, which means an inquest into his death is not needed.

The singer’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, who found him dead on Christmas Day, took to Twitter shortly after the statement, tweet 'F*** YOU' and 'The Truth is out'.

Today’s announcement means that, after more than two months, Michael’s body will finally be able to be released to his family ahead of a planned funeral.

It is unlikely a full toxicology report will ever be reported over the death.

Darren Salter, senior coroner for Oxfordshire, said today: 'Inquiries into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post-mortem report received.

'As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further enquiries.' 

The funeral had been delayed after an initial post-mortem examination was said to have been 'inconclusive'.
