The ‘Careless Whisper’ hitmaker’s family decided to keep his plush property – worth £11 million – in Highgate, North London, following his tragic death on Christmas Day in 2016 and are now keen to rent it out following a recent major clean-up mission.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre column: “George’s home is ready to rent and is being secretly touted to ultra-rich elite clientele, emphasising its unrivalled privacy. There has already been huge interest.”
The mansion is complete with five bedrooms, a summer house, a swimming pool and has secret access to London’s Hampstead Heath via a back gate.
His family’s decision to put the house on the rental market comes just days after they asked his fans to stop leaving floral tributes outside the property because they were keen to return all of the homes he owned to their former “simple state.”
They added in a statement: “We are hoping, into the future, to get back to you with more thoughts on ways and ideas to remember Yog that we hope you’ll like.”
However, although George’s family are setting the ball rolling with his Highgate mansion, they’ve got a fight on their hands with his other property in Hyde Park as the singer’s on/off boyfriend Fadi Fawaz is currently living there and refusing to leave.
The home – worth £5 million – is now being visited by the bailiffs because Fadi, who dated George from 2012 until his death in 2016 – can’t keep up with the repayments of the possessions inside and has started selling his belongings to “survive.”
He wrote on Twitter recently: “Goerge Micheal Items for sale if you interested please let me know. It’s a way so I can survive till we solve the problems with his family and lawyer. Since I’m left with no help and since no one is human anymore.
“Am willing to sell any story as well .
“I am done with being respectful towards George Michael or the rest.
“I will fight for my right from George Michael till the last day of my life.
“And no I won’t get a job.”
