George Michael's Cause Of Death Revealed By Coroner

George Michael died at age 53 from natural causes, reveals the coroner's investigation.

Although it was previously rumored that the beloved gay singer had succumbed to HIV/AIDS, those reports appear to have been merely speculative and erroneous. 

PEOPLE reports:

The legendary singer suffered a dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, according to the senior coroner for Oxfordshire, Darren Salter.

A statement from the coroner reads, “Enquires 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 enquiries. No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”

Dilated cardiomyopathy is a form of heart disease.

Fatty liver, on the other hand, though often linked to alcoholism, can also occur in individuals who are obese, or have diabetes.

Michael’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz responded to the news of the coroner's report with an image on Twitter:

Sleep peacefully, George Michael.

George Michael and I were born in the same year, about six months apart. He was an AWESOME singer and performer and we have lost that brilliant person. Rest in eternal peace, George Michael!

His death left a big pair of shoes that would never be filled, and the type of man and artist he was cannot be replaced.  The human being he was; kind, generous and loving.  May you Rest In Peace and I hope we can find some closure now.

Jeeeezus, he was beautiful back in the 80s & 90s.  He was one of my first crushes.  I thought I was gay & George Michael came along & I knew for sure.  RIP George.
