George Michael’s boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, is set for a row over the star’s inheritance, claiming that George Michael’s house in which Fawaz has been living since his partner’s death, should officially belong to him because that’s hat he thinks George would want. But the musician’s sister Melanie argues his will does not say so, Fawaz replied that he and Michael had an oral agreement. In a court of law, his claims wouldn’t hold up against the sister’s right to inherit the property. This doesn’t mean, according to Forbes’ experts, that Fawaz will definitely not have a claim to the home. Because he has been living in the home, and has a claim that he is entitled to stay, the family would have to initiate legal proceedings to evict him. That means all the details of the will would be made public during proceedings. The exact details of the will are not yet known, but the singer’s other, older sister Yioda Panayiotou, 57, is also reported to be receiving a large chunk of his estimated £105million fortune. A number of charities and causes that were close to the legendary performer’s heart are expected to be recognised in the will, too.
