George Michael was buried in a hush-hush midnight service in an elaborate plot to conceal his HIV-positive status, STAR has learned. A frenzy erupted when the late pop star’s boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, posted an eerie picture of a church on Instagram — Leading fans to believe the Wham! star had been laid to rest. George’s burial plans had been shrouded in secrecy since a coroner declared he died a “natural death” at age 53 on Christmas Day 2016.
But evidence uncovered by STAR showed the “Careless Whisper” singer’s degenerate lifestyle led to his deadly HIV-positive status! George’s autopsy revealed the hit-maker suffered from dilated cardiomyopathy — a disease where the heart muscles dilate and grow progressively thinner — Which is linked to the use of cocaine and amphetamines. The cardiomyopathy was further complicated by myocarditis, a heart inflammation common in AIDS patients!
