George Michael’s ex-boyfriend Fadi Fawaz has been accused of ‘going berserk’ and smashing windows and lights in the late pop star’s central London home.

Fadi was pictured shirtless and smoking on the balcony, with broken windows and patio doors also in the frame.

He has been squatting in the property since the Last Christmas singer died in 2016; George’s family are thought to be using legal proceedings to have the hairdresser removed from the house.

Onlookers near to the home alleged that the 45-year-old was going ‘absolutely berserk’ and that there was ‘glass flying everywhere’ but Fadi told The Sun that he was simply ‘renovating’.

‘I can ask when it’ll be done and let you know,’ he said, ‘It’s alright, it is all in hand.’

Fadi is said to have lived at the £5million property since George died on Christmas Day in 2016 at the age of 53.

George’s family have sent legal letters asking Fadi to leave the house, which is situated near Regent’s Park, but he has allegedly ignored the notices as he claims he now has squatter’s rights.

A source close to the late singer’s family previously said that the family felt Fadi was ‘being a real pain about all this’.

‘He has refused to leave despite several letters and requests in the last 18 months. He is blanking them out and it appears he now has squatters rights,; they said, adding: ‘It’s been going on for such a long time that it’s hard to know what to do next. The lawyers are seeing what can be done.

‘It would be a lot easier if Fadi just upped sticks and left.’

Fadi’s relationship with George’s family is believed to have been strained since the Wham! singer’s unexpected death more than two years ago.

In September 2018, Fadi sparked controversy when he shared several social media posts claiming George had tried to kill himself four times while in June 2019 it was revealed he had been left out of George’s £98 million will.

George’s beloved sisters Melanie and Yioda received an equal share of all the star’s major assets, including his two London homes while his father Kyriacos, or Jack, has been left a horse racing stud, where he has lived for a number of years.

The Mill Charitable Trust – which George set up himself in 2009 – was given artwork and antiques including a piano belonging to John Lennon and the rest of the £98 million was shared between a host of the Faith singer’s closest friends.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for George’s family for comment.
