According to George Michael’s cousin Andros Georgiou the most probable cause of death is drug abuse.
“Hard drugs had been back in his life,” he stated in a BBC interview explaining that the singer had been addicted to crack in the past too.
“I just think he took too much of something, mixed with antidepressants.”
The legend died on Christmas day at the age of only 53. The legal tests were inconclusive and the cause of death is yet to be found. One thing is clear for the cousin – It was “Not suicide.”
Instead, he believes it might’ve been an accidental death.
“I believe he had suicidal thoughts, because his mental health was all over the place. But I don’t believe this was suicide.”
He claimed that Michael’s favorite drug was crack cocaine, adding that: “I just think he took too much of something, mixed with antidepressants and other drugs he was on – with alcohol.”
“I think his heart just stopped beating.”
Mr Georgiou stated that all he and the rest of Michael’s family wants is “to get to the truth of what happened, exactly what was in his blood at the time, who gave it [the drugs] to him, why did he have it again”.
He added that he spoke to people who were close to the star towards the end of his life and believed he was “actually getting better… he was trying to lead a normal life again and I believe he was dragged back into the dark side”.
About the alleged heroin use, he said it was “absolute rubbish”, adding: “I know that was the one drug he never touched.”
Mr Georgiou described the late singer as a “private person, an incredibly generous person, one of the nicest people you could ever meet.”
He was also an “honest man” who “hated lying.”
Michael was also a charitable man and the cousin remembered how the two of them would drive around on Christmas Eve “with two Range Rovers full of food… and feed all the homeless”.
