Fadi Fawaz has slammed claims he has been banned from George Michael's funeral.

The music icon's 43-year-old lover was the one who found him dead at his home on Christmas Day (25.12.16) but the 'Careless Whisper' hitmaker's cousin Andros Georgiou recently insisted the hairdresser wouldn't be welcome at his memorial service because their family "hate" him.

However, Fadi has insisted that isn't the case and when the coroner finally releases his lover's body, he will be there at the service.

He tweeted: "Let me make it clear that I'M NOT BANNED TO GO TO THE FUNERAL none of it is true, ITS NOT TRUE, NOT TRUE NOT TRUE NOT TRUE (sic)"

And Fadi - who has changed his Twitter biography to read "I will never stop missing you xxx" - followed his post by sharing a black and white image of George kissing him fondly.

He captioned the picture: "This Image says it all.(sic)"

Fadi was recently defended by his nephew Josh, who branded George's family "stupid and disrespectful".

He said: "I don't understand why they have so much hate for him when all he ever did was love George. Not being there to say goodbye will devastate him.

"Can you imagine losing someone who you have been in a relationship with for six years then being pushed out like that?
"It's stupid and disrespectful of George's family to give him such a bad time."

Josh was surprised at the snub because he thought his uncle was on good terms with George's family, before the 53-year-old singer passed away suddenly at his home in Oxfordshire over Christmas.

He said: "The week before he died we messaged each other a lot, and everything seemed perfect between them. To say they weren't together then is absolute nonsense.

"And to call him a gold-digger, are you kidding me? That is crazy talk. Fadi doesn't care about money at all.

"He was doing well for himself before he met George. There was no rift that I knew of between him and George's family before he died."

Meanwhile, there is further heartbreak for George's family as his funeral has been postponed until March due to a delay with toxicology tests, as police work to discover his cause of death.

An insider said: "Everyone is upset and mystified by the delay.

"They just don't understand why it is taking so long.

"It is really upsetting that George is still lying in the morgue when people want to say goodbye to him."
