George Michael's ex-lover Kenny Goss sues star's family

George Michael’s ex-lover Kenny Goss sues the star’s sister and elderly father claiming he should be paid £15,000 A MONTH from the late singer’s estate, even though the pair split 11 years ago

  • Texan, 62, allegedly claiming was reliant on George’s money when he was alive 
  • George, who died in 2016 at the age of 53 and did not leave any money to Goss
  • The pair were together for 13 years but split in 2009 

George Michael’s former lover Kenny Goss is suing the singer’s family in an attempt to get £15,000 a month from the late star’s estate. 

The Texan, 62, is allegedly claiming he was reliant on George’s money when he was alive and so should still be provided for.    

George, who died on Christmas Day in 2016 at the age of 53, did not leave any money to Goss in his will but did reportedly pay him a generous monthly allowance before their split in 2009. 

Former art dealer Goss is claiming George was ‘not in his right mind’ when he made the will, according to The Sun.

The bulk of the singer’s £97.6million fortune went to his sisters Melanie and Yioda, with smaller amounts going to his father Kyriacos and his close friends and former staff.

His partner at the time of his death, Fadi Fawaz, was also not left anything. 

Goss is allegedly claiming he gave up his career to care for George during their 13-year relationship. 

He is suing Yioda – who is George’s only surviving sister after Melanie died aged 59 last Christmas – and Kyriacos and wants at least £15,000 a month.

A source told The Sun: ‘His argument is he gave up his own career to focus on his relationship, and also set up a charitable foundation alongside George. 

‘He was essentially given an incredibly generous allowance which he came to rely on.

‘Kenny believes, as George’s most significant other half, he is entitled to that still and is contesting George wasn’t in his right mind when he made his last will. Kenny wants at least £15,000 a month to live off.’ 

It wasn’t until June last year that George’s estate was finally divided. 

The singer left it up to his sister to decide which of his friends would receive part of his will.

But Goss and Fawaz were left out entirely.   

In March 2017, the Texan art dealer, 60, opened up to Dallas Morning News, about the couple’s relationship, which ended in 2009 and was announced in 2011.

He said: ‘We just had a really good, sweet relationship. We weren’t even mad at each other or anything like that. He was truly the love of my life. And I think I was the love of his life.’

In the wake of the singer’s sudden death on Christmas Day, Kenny issued a moving statement, mourning his former lover.

‘I’m heartbroken with the news that my dear friend and longtime love George Michael has passed,’ he wrote. He was a major part of my life and I loved him very, very much. He was an extremely kind and generous man.

 ‘The beautiful memories and music he brought to the world will always be an important part of my life and those who also loved and admired him.’
