Fadi Fawaz has opened up about the police investigation into George Michael's death, and denied reports that the pair had split over a year before the singer's death on Christmas Day.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, the hairdresser said: "We were very much in love, very much together. Why would I be there if we weren't together? I was there the last day of his life. I was there." Fadi had been in a five-year-relationship with the star before his death, and spoke about being interviewed by the police regarding the former Wham! band member's death. "The police have been amazing," he said. "They have been supportive. They have done what normally happens when someone dies. They have not been accusing me, never; they have been very supportive."

Fadi opened up about speaking to the police

Fadi has previously spoken about how he had slept in the car the night before George's death, and was the one to find him after going to wake him up. He told the Mirror: "I never saw him. I fell asleep in my car and I never saw him that night. The police know everything - that's the most important thing." Police are currently investigating George's death after the post mortem results proved inconclusive, while further toxicology tests are being done to determine the star's cause of death.

In a statement posted on their site, the police confirmed that the death was not being treating as suspicious, writing: "This is not a Thames Valley Police Major Crime investigation.

This is standard practice in cases such as this to allow the coroner to determine the circumstances of the death."
