Michael was found dead at his home in Oxfordshire on Christmas day by his boyfriend Fadi Fawaz. His death has been called “unexplained but not suspicious” as police haven’t found any evidence of foul play.

Authorities said that it will take several weeks until those further test results come back to know exactly what happened.  (RELATED: George Michael Is Dead At 53)

A statement from the singer’s manager, Michael Lippman, on Christmas day said that the singer died of heart failure.

“It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period,” the singer’s publicist wrote. “The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time.”

“There will be no further comment at this stage.”

Since his death reports have surfaced that the singer might have battled a heroin addiction as he was allegedly in and out of the hospital for drug use in the weeks and months leading up to his death.

“He’s been rushed to A&E on several occasions,” an anonymous source told the Telegraph. “He used heroin. I think it’s amazing he’s lasted as long as he has.

Those reports however have not been confirmed.
