Ge­orge Michael’s fu­neral kept se­cret

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Time Out -

Late Eng­lish singer Ge­orge Michael’s (left) fam­ily is keen to keep de­tails about his fu­neral un­der wraps be­cause they don’t want fans turn­ing up to the cer­e­mony.

The Wham! singer will fi­nally have a fu­neral this month, 10 weeks af­ter his death on Christ­mas Day last year, af­ter a coro­ner re­vealed ear­lier this week that he died of nat­u­ral causes, re­ports dai­lystar.co.uk. A rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the star re­fused to com­ment on “pri­vate mat­ters” when asked if fu­neral de­tails would be re­leased soon. The High­gate Ceme­tery in north Lon­don, where Michael is ex­pected to be buried along­side his mother Les­ley, also re­fused to give an in­di­ca­tion about his fu­neral. “If you’re phoning about Ge­orge Michael, I’m sorry we haven’t got any in­for­ma­tion for you,” a recorded tele­phone mes­sage at the ceme­tery said. Michael’s body has been kept by the coro­ner since his death at his home in Ox­ford­shire in De­cem­ber af­ter the ini­tial post-mortem came back as “in­con­clu­sive”.
