George Michael: His medic claims the star knew he was going to die: PA

George Michael’s personal physician claims the star knew he was going to die soon and wanted to “get everything in order”.

Osteopath Simeon Niel-Asher said he treated Mr Michael at his Highgate home three weeks before the singer’s tragic death and they had an unusual chat.

Mr Niel-Asher, who treated the star over three decades, told the Sunday Mirror: “We had a really weird conversation, it was interesting and it was strange.

“Sometimes people know they are going to die and they get everything in order.

“I wonder if there was a bit of that going on, like he somehow knew.

“It was strange to think he might have known he was going to die or had some kind of inkling.

“That happens. Some people know they are going to die and I’ve seen it before.”

The 53-year-old was found dead at his home on Christmas Day by distraught boyfriend Fadi Fawaz.

An inquest held earlier this month found the Careless Whisper singer died of natural causes.

Mr Niel-Asher said: “I was waiting for a call to see him again. So his death hit me hard, I only found out on the news.

“We became good friends and it was a tremendous therapeutic relationship.”

Mr Michael’s funeral service will be held at Hightgate West Cemetery with a small gathering of around 30 mourners, the Sun on Sunday reported.

Former Spice Girl Geri Horner is expected to give a reading.
