Did George Michaels, the celebrated British-born music prodigy, a self-confessed gay, decide to end it all on Christmas day because there were no kids around, the major reason he hates the celebration?

That might be one of the possibilities that might be looked into, as investigations into the sudden death of the iconic musician that rattled most of his fans across the world continue.

One of the testimonies that could have significance on why he might have decided to end it all at the time he did, was given by Carlos Arturo Ortiz, who believes the superstar may have killed himself after telling him he was deeply unhappy.

The 59-year-old Colombian ­hairdresser, according to The Mirror of UK, revealed how the tormented singer confessed to him that he was desperately addicted to anti-depressants and was so worried about George’s state of mind he felt “something was going to happen to him”.

Read the report: Carlos told us: “I had an intuitive feeling about it last year. And it seems very coincidental to me that he was found dead on Christmas Day because he told me he hated Christmas as there were never any children around. For me it is, sadly, a possibility he may have overdosed.”

Police are still investigating the circumstances leading up to 53-year-old George’s death at his home after a post-mortem examination on December 29 proved inconclusive.

Reports have claimed the Wham! star may have died after taking an overdose, but further tests will now be carried out.

Carlos has watched the events unfold from Australia – where the pair enjoyed a night of passion – with sadness and dismay.

He said: “George’s death knocked me sideways, although it didn’t surprise me. I found him a lovely down-to-earth man, but also a very melancholic person who I feared might one day take his own life.


The two lovers

“He told me he was addicted to anti-depressant medicine and trying to wean himself off it and confessed he was unhappy.

“We talked about his superstar status and I told him I thought that with his fame and talent and money he had all he needed to be happy in life.

“But when he started talking about the anti-depressants he took I asked him outright if he was happy in life and he replied, ‘No, I’m not.’

Carlos – who left a job managing a park cemetery in his native Cali to move to Australia to improve his English – says memories of that night in 2013 have come flooding back since the tragedy.

He recalled how the singer flirted with him on a gay contact website then invited him to suite 12 at Sydney’s ­luxurious Park Hyatt hotel near the famous opera house.

Carlos said: “I had just come in from a night out when I turned on my computer and saw a message from someone with George Michael’s profile and pictures, saying he found me very sexy.

“I replied asking if it was the singer himself, but I imagined it was just someone who idolised him and was using his name.

“It wasn’t until I turned up at his hotel and he opened the door in his pyjama bottoms and bare-chested that I was sure it was him.

“It was a wonderful feeling meeting a man whose songs I loved. We made love and then started talking while he ordered pink Champagne to the room.

“I asked him about some of the celebs he’d met and he talked to me about Michael Jackson and Princess Diana.

“He said he had come close to doing a song with Michael Jackson – but when they met with their respective managers he said Michael never once looked him in the eye and in the end the project never came to fruition.

“I asked him about rumours I’d heard that his relationship with Princess Diana was more than just friendship.

“He laughed and said he’d found her too skinny and nothing ever happened. But it was when we started talking about his own life that his unhappiness and use of anti-depressants came up.

“He said he was no longer with his long-term partner, Kenny Goss but that they were still living in the same house together. He asked me to spend time with him in the UK but I said I didn’t think it appropriate while he was still living with an ex. I think he liked me and was looking to spend time with someone whose company he enjoyed.”

Carlos, now single, recalled one disturbing incident during their night of passion. He said the singer disappeared while they were together to “see a friend”.

He came back 20 minutes later before delving into a suitcase and going into the bathroom to empty some drops from a small bottle into a glass of water he gulped down.

Carlos said: “I knew they were drugs, but I didn’t ask him what they were and we never talked about it.

“They didn’t alter his mood particularly. All he drank apart from the Champagne was Coca-Cola which he told me he downed by the gallon and was addicted to along with chocolate.”

Carlos says he left the hotel the next afternoon because the star, who once boasted of having 500 lovers in seven years, “had another commitment”.

George rose to fame in the Eighties with Wham! co-star Andrew Ridgeley. He had record sales of more than 100 million, with five studio albums and 40 singles. But towards the end of his life he became increasingly reclusive and his weight ballooned to around 16 stone.

The star’s battles with recreational drugs were well documented, most notably his addiction to cannabis.

It landed him in jail for eight weeks in 2010 after he crashed his Range Rover into a branch of Snappy Snaps while under the influence of the drug.

George publicly revealed he was gay after being arrested over a “lewd act” in a Los Angeles public toilet in 1998.

And he was later caught engaging in public sex on North London’s Hampstead Heath in 2008. His 14-year relationship with long-term American lover Kenny Goss broke down in 2010.

It is understood he had been dating on-off boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, a ­celebrity hair-stylist, since 2011.

Later that same year he had a severe bout of pneumonia which left him fighting for life in a Vienna hospital while on tour promoting his Symphonica album. After recovering he was involved in a bizarre incident which saw him fall from the passenger seat of a car on to the M1.

The star had to be airlifted to hospital amid fears he had attempted suicide, but he claimed to have been adjusting the door which he said was not shut properly.

Carlos never saw George again but still uses a pair of Prada sunglasses the star gave him the day they met.

He said: “They were lying on the bathroom sink and I tried them on and loved them when I saw what they looked like on me in the mirror.

“George said to me, ‘If you like them, keep them.’ It was a lovely gesture and I’ve still got them. They mean the world to me. They’re classic George Michael and such a lovely reminder of our time together.”

Carlos added: “George gave me his personal telephone number and we spoke a couple of times while he was in Australia. But we never got the chance to meet again or to speak after he left the country, which is something I now regret.

“I was very surprised when I saw pictures of his physical deterioration because when I met him he was in good shape. I remember his beautiful big eyes and the fact he was a great kisser.

“It’s so sad drugs destroyed such a great talent and a wonderful person like George. So many superstars have tragically gone the way he has.

“His life shows that money can’t buy you everything. It can buy you material things but not happiness. And drugs can take it all away.”
