George Michael denies cocaine addiction

Los Angeles, July 14 (IANS) Singer George Michael says he is “perfectly fine” following allegations that he is addicted to cocaine.

The “Careless whisper” hitmaker has spoken out to reassure fans after a family member, Jackie Georgiou, who the singer claims he hasn’t seen in 18 years, claimed he was seeking treatment for an addiction to cocaine, reports

Michael tweeted: “To my lovelies, do not believe this rubbish in the papers today by someone I don’t know anymore and haven’t seen for nearly 18 years…I am perfectly fine and enjoyed Wimbledon like the rest of you. Wish it went to 5 sets though!… Lots of love, The Singing Greek xxx. (sic)”

Michael’s comments came after his spokesperson also dismissed the claims made by Georgiou, who is married to the 52-year-old star’s cousin Andros.

His representative said: “Whilst it is our general policy not to comment on private matters, we would in this instance note that these highly inaccurate stories have been apparently provided to the press by the wife of a very distant family member, neither of whom has had any dealings with him for many many years.

“It is therefore unsurprising that they are so incorrect.”
