Years ago, Michael battled drug use, yet denied rumors that he was an addict. Following his death, his boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, sent out a series of since-deleted tweets claiming Michael wanted to kill himself.

“We loved each other very much and we were together almost 24 hours a day..And finally he managed… he tried numbers of time to kill himself many times… the only thing George wanted is to DIE,” Fawaz reportedly wrote.

Michael’s family denied the claims.

Following news of the coroner’s results, Fawaz took to Twitter to share his feelings. Sharing a black and white photo of the couple together, Fawaz wrote, “The Truth is out.”

Michael’s funeral was reportedly postponed pending toxicology results.
