Fadi previously confirmed that he found George dead in the morning, and can allegedly be heard telling the emergency call operator that he believes the singer has passed away. In the audio of the call, which was obtained by The Sun, a man can be heard saying: "It's George Michael. I think he's dead. He's dead. He's not breathing… I've been waiting for him to wake him up for like, you know, for hours and he wouldn't wake up, I went to wake him up and he was gone, you know, he's not there." The celebrity hairstylist tweeted about George's passing, writing: "It's a Xmas I will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning… I will never stop missing you."
