Police have ruled out foul play in the death of George Michael. The singer died of suspected heart-failure at his Oxfordshire home on Christmas day last year. His boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, 40, is no longer part of the police investigation into the singer's death, police confirmed. A spokesperson for Thames Valley Police told The Mail on Sunday: "We are satisfied that there are no suspicious circumstances." Following the 53-year-old's death, Fawaz, a celebrity hairdresser, who had been in a relationship with Michael for four years, was earlier helping Thames Valley Police piece together the last hours of the star's life before he died.

There has been speculation as to why Michael's body has still not been released to his family almost six weeks after his death. While the coroner may hold the body in cases where foul play is suspected, in this instance it is thought that the body will be held until results of toxicology tests are released. While the first post-mortem proved to be inconclusive, police say the results are now 'imminent.' While fans have called for a memorial service to be held, no funeral arrangements have yet been announced for the pop icon. READ MORE
