The dispute:

In order to get George Michael’s partner out of the star’s luxury £5million London townhouse, the late singer’s family may resort to serving him a court order.

Since the star’s unexpectedly passing on Christmas Day, his partner Fadi Fawaz, 40, has been staying at Michael’s luxury property in Regent’s Park.

The singer’s family will inherit the along with most of his estate, and it’s understood that they have fallen out with the celebrity hairdresser. A dispute has erupted between the family and Fawaz as he is still occupying the house.

According to a source, Fawaz has been banned from his partner’s funeral. He has also severed ties with George’s relatives

Fawaz accused George’s family of cutting him off and not looking out for him since the star’s death, in an interview with The Sun. ‘You take nothing with you anyway. I am that kind of guy believe it or not, it’s all okay. I am resilient because I understand how things work. I’m grateful for everything,’ he added.

On the morning of Christmas Day, Fawaz found George dead at another of his homes in Goring-on-Thames, he insisted he was not there when the star died – claiming he spent the previous night asleep in his car.

The funeral:

Michael’s sister Melanie is organizing the funeral, according to the Sunday People. One of Michael’s closest friends, former Spice Girl Geri Horner, 44, will reportedly give a reading at the service.

A ‘dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and a fatty liver’ were the pop star’s official cause of death.

It was revealed that Michael’s death was registered by his sister Panayiota Panayiotou, after his death certificate was released for the first time on Friday. It used his birth name, Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, but referred to his stage name.

Police said that they were treating the star’s death as ‘unexplained but not suspicious’. They were called to the 53-year-old’s home in Goring-on-Thames just before 2pm on Christmas Day.

Oxfordshire’s senior coroner, Darren Salter, decided that there was no need for an inquest to find the cause of his death.

He released a statement saying: ‘Inquiries into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post-mortem report received. As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further inquiries. No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.’
