George Michael's former partner Kenny Goss has said he thinks the late pop star's body "just gave up".

The singer (53), who suffered health scares and fought drug addiction for years, was "just weak", the art dealer said.

Michael was found dead at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, on Christmas Day, but the cause is yet to be made public.


Goss (58) said that Michael's family and friends want to lay him to rest.

"We just want closure. We want the funeral to happen - it's been a long time now," he said.

Further tests were needed after a post-mortem was inconclusive.

"I think his body just gave up. All these years, it was just weak," said Goss.
