Michael’s former manager Rob Kahane spoke to Billboard for a tribute issue on the late singer in which he revealed George often said he was going to die young.

Michael hit a rough patch in his life during which the singer lost about 30 million British pounds in a lawsuit with Sony and his partner of two years, Anselmo Feleppa, died from an AIDS-related brain hemorrhage.

It was at that time Kahane began to really worry for Michael. “When he lost Anselmo, I thought he was going to do something bad to himself. I had people stay with him,” Kahane told Billboard. (VIDEO: Elton John Sings Emotional Tribute To George Michael)

The gay singer later came out to his family and shortly afterwards learned that his mother, whom he was very close with, had terminal cancer. (REPORT: George Michael Secretly Battled Heroin Addiction Before Death)

Michael then entered a period of clinical depression at that time. “He was obsessed with saying, ‘I know I’m going to die young,'” his former manager recalled. “He’d say, ‘It’s OK. I’ve had a great life.'”

The singer passed away in his bed at his Oxfordshire home and was found on Christmas day by his boyfriend. The English singer-songwriter was 53-years-old.

The cause of his death still remains inconclusive.
