Hollywood and Bollywood celebs pay tributes to late pop superstar — George Michael

The man that took me and Harley around the world; just to see us smile.

How did George Michael die? "I am looking forward to spending it with friends and family, thank again, love The Singing Greek!"

When the contestant didn't win the money, George Michael rang up the show and anonymously passed on the money so the woman could have the treatment. However, his weight could have played a significant part in his death. "I'm heartbroken we never got to speak again after so many years, I can't believe this has happened, please watch over me in heaven Godfather", Kennedy wrote on Instagram.

According to BBC News, Thames Valley Police say South Central Ambulance Service attended a property in Goring in Oxfordshire at lunchtime.

The news comes as PR chief Gary Farrow - a close friend of the One More Try singer - told The Sun newspaper that "easy access to drugs" ultimately caused the death of the prolific talent.

George Michael passed away on Christmas Day.

Our thoughts go out to George's family and friends during this hard time.

Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow released the following statement.

In his main scene, George visits a "queer bench" in Hampstead Heath, where the star had been accused of having sexual liaisons in real life.

Duran Duran, the band that was 1980s contemporaries of Wham!, also paid tribute to Michael on their official Twitter account.

This Christmas, George Michael gave us his heart, as we mourn his lost in what has been a season of sadness. "He will be missed". RIP George Michael." Comedian Tim Vine added: "Oh no. GEORGE MICHAEL. It is unknown if a toxicology report will be done. At this stage the death is being treated as unexplained but not suspicious.

The star became embroiled in numerous controversies throughout his career, with George arrested for "engaging in a lewd act" in California in 1998, and admitting that he cruised for anonymous sex on Hampstead Heath in 2006. It did seem, however, that he had gotten his life back on track in recent years. "He had put on a lot of weight and hardly ever left the house", the neighbor reveals, referring to his lovely home near the River Thames.
