The year of 2016 has claimed yet another superstar life. George Michael died “peacefully” at his Oxfordshire home on Christmas Day, an as yet “unexplained” death, but apparent heart failure.
Police and his publicist confirmed the shock news late on 25th December. The tributes flooded in soon after, via Social Media. The former Wham! star and solo legend was 53.
His death came around 24 hours after Status Quo star Rick Parfitt passed away in Spain.
