The Belfast Telegraph reports that - George Michael 'fought secret addiction to heroin' - source claims he was rushed to A&E on number of occasions
The Mirrir reports - George Michael’s friend Gary Farrow, claims drugs were his downfall , and but he would have made an amazing parent
He abused crack and prescription drugs, but his favorite was marijuana, which we know didn't kill him
The source said that the singer would party all night at his £8million Highgate mansion in north London.
“I believe easy access to drugs was the cause of his problems. I thought George was too bright to get involved with illegal substances. But once this disease gets hold of you it’s hard to fight it.”
The source said: 'He's been rushed to A&E on several occasions. He used heroin. I think it’s amazing he’s lasted as long as he has.'
Michael, born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, enjoyed a glittering career, but battled a troubled personal life.
Struggles to hide his own sexuality and cope with his fame led to fears for his life as he experimented with alcohol and drugs.
He admitted that during one period he was smoking 25 joints a day in his struggle with addiction. In 2008, he was caught smoking crack cocaine in a public toilet.
Last year, Michael denied claims made by his cousin's wife, Jackie Georgiou, that he was addicted to crack cocaine, branding allegations 'highly inaccurate'.
Despite George’s relationship with drugs, Gary says the singer had a brilliant sense of humour.
