Journalists at The Sun feel that they have the right to quiz George Michael’s partner, Fadi Fawaz, with EIGHT personal questions about his relationship with the singer.
The Sun has launched an investigation into the private lives of Fadi Fawaz and George Michael, following the shocking death of the superstar on Christmas day. Fadi has self-identified as George’s boyfriend at the time of his death.
The paper has demanded that Fadi answers five (but it’s actually 8) questions including whether the photographer was in a relationship with George Michael at the time of his death.
Journalists Stephen Moyes and Nick Pisa insist in their article that they have “Five questions Fadi should answer” they include:
Did you know George was taking drugs up to his death? Who provided the drugs?
Did you really sleep in your car on the wintry night he died, and why?
Who hacked your Twitter account, and have you reported the problem?
Were you in a relationship with George when he died?
Why do friends of George accuse you of acting like a ‘leech’?
According to the article, Fadi refused to answer these questions.
The article suggests that these questions were posed by “pals of George”, but the paper doesn’t reveal the identity of these friends.
FADI FOUND GEORGE AND INCONCLUSIVE AUTOPSY
Fadi is reported to have found George on Christmas morning dead in his bed. It was reported that he was lying peacefully. A post-mortem examination on the body of George Michael was “inconclusive”. More tests will be carried out to determine the singer’s cause of death. His death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.
The star was found in his Oxfordshire home by his partner. He was found lying, “peacefully in bed”.
Fadi told The Daily Telegraph: “I went round there to wake him up and he was just gone. We don’t know what happened yet.”
THE SUN CRITICISED FOR ITS JOURNALISM
The Sun’s own readers criticised the publication over the line of questioning, with one saying,
“He doesn’t owe the sun or their ghoulish readership any answers.”
Another blasted the two writers of the piece saying,
“Stephen Moyes and Nick Pisa – Incredible!
With just one quickly vomited text you once and again prove for the world to see The Sun as the unique SCUM TOILET RAG that it truly is. And its garbage workers who should never dare to misappropriate the word ‘journos’ as an excuse for the vile human beings that you descended into.”
