George Michael’s extraordinary acts of charity revealed – following his death in bed at his Oxfordshire home aged just 53
Stories of the incredible generosity of George Michael have raised hopes he may have left huge sums to good causes following his shock death aged 53 from suspected heart failure yesterday.
The singer – who sold more than 100million records with band Wham! and during a hugely successful solo career – passed away in his bed at home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire on Christmas Day afternoon.
A series of claims about his secret donations have since emerged, including that he gave huge sums to people he saw on TV or met during nights out.
Charities have also praised him for the thousands he helped raise during his life through concerts and donations, raising the prospect that the huge royalties from his records may go to charity.
His father Kyriacos, older sisters Melanie and Yioda as well as his ex-boyfriends may also be entitled to a share of his estimated 100million estate.
