George Michael Passes Away At 53 Due To Heart Failure

Posted at December 26th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

English singer/songwriter George Michael passes away at 53 on Christmas Day. Cause of death has been confirmed as heart failure and he was found lying in bed peacefully. The record producer rose to fame with the group Wham! and had a spectacular career with the band as well as solo.

The star’s publicist released a statement saying: “It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period. The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”

Michael’s longtime manager Michael Lippman says, “I’m devastated.” The manager received a call on Christmas morning notifying him that Michael had been found “in bed, lying peacefully.” The exact time of death is not clear at this time, but there was “no foul play whatsoever,” says Lippman. The death by heart failure was unexpected, he adds.

It’s another shattering blow to the music industry this year and ironically on Christmas Day that this loss was incurred.
