Michael Cleared After Car Crash Incident

GEORGE MICHAEL has escaped police charges following an incident on Easter Sunday (16APR06) which saw him career into three parked cars in north London. The former WHAM! star faced police questioning and public embarrassment when neighbours claimed to have witnessed Michael colliding with three parked cars while he attempted a tricky manoeuvre on a steep hill - then driving off without reporting the incident. A spokesman said, "Inquiries were made to establish the owner of the vehicle, but the file is now closed." The star's insurers are reportedly footing the $26,250 (GBP15,000) repair bill. In February (06) Michael was cautioned for possessing cannabis when he was found slumped at the wheel of his car in London's Hyde Park Corner.

The Chequered Past Of George Michael 4225591 News

George Michael may be worth an estimated £90 million, but money can’t solve all your problems. The singer was in hospital last month after allegedly collapsing at his north London home on Thursday May 22. After spending four hours in his home, paramedics took Michael to the hospital for emergency treatment. He was discharged that weekend and said to be “well and resting.”

George Michael troubles George Michael has suffered a string of personal problems

Despite achieving critical acclaim throughout his career and earning £48.5 million from touring alone between 2006-2008, the singer has suffered his fair share of difficulties. Wham! may have been one of the biggest bands of the 1980s, but Michael suffered a string of sadnesses in his personal life. After finally coming to terms personally with his sexuality in the 90s, he began a relationship with Brazilian designer, Anselmo Feleppa. The couple were together for six months before Feleppa discovered that he was HIV positive. Michael later spoke about the shocking situation, “It was terrifying news. I thought I could have the disease too. I couldn’t go through it with my family because I didn’t know how to share it with them - they didn’t even know I was gay.” 2 years later Feleppa died of a brain haemorrhage related to AIDS.

There was little doubt left for the public over Michael’s sexuality when, in 1998, he was arrested for “engaging in a lewd act” in a public restroom in Beverly Hills. He later said hiding his sexuality made him feel ‘fraudulent’, and his eventual outing, when he was arrested…"was a subconsciously deliberate act.” That it may have been, but it didn’t stop him from doing it again, and in 2006 Michael was arrested for doing the exact same thing, this time in London.

Michael is also believed to have struggled with drug use over the years, particularly cannabis. He has been arrested several times for being in possession of the drug and has admitted to overuse. In 2009 he told The Guardian newspaper that he had managed to cut down, now only smoking “seven or eight” joints a day as opposed to 25.

George Michael troubles Michael has been in and out of hospital over the past few years

Michael’s recent illness isn’t the only one he has suffered over the past few years. In 2011 he canceled a gig at the Royal Albert Hall in London because of a viral infection, which turned out to be pneumonia. In May 2013 he was airlifted to hospital after sustaining a head injury caused by falling out of his moving car on the M1 motorway.

Let’s hope that his latest trip to hospital will be George Michael’s last trouble for a while. We believe that it will be, so do you George, you just gotta have faith.

George Michael embarrassed by blonde locks 4115857 News

George Michael is embarrassed by the fact he had blonde hair in the 1980s.

The 'Faith' hitmaker - who shot to fame alongside Andrew Ridgeley as a member of Wham! - also finds it 'cringe' when he looks back at old videos on YouTube, in which he wore hoop earrings.

George explained: ''Where do I start? I know - the blonde hair from my Wham! days. That came about because I didn't really want to be me, so the short, dark, curly hair had to go. And I could have done without those curtain rings in my ears as well.''

The 50-year-old star also regrets placing shuttlecocks down his shorts during performances on their first tour to make his 'package' appear bigger.

He said: ''I mean, how stupid was that? Actually, that one I'll blame on Andrew - he really loved winding people up all the time.

''I do remember another embarrassing moment from the old days ... when Andrew and I went to a music awards ceremony early in our career. I was wearing a suit that made me look a bit like Colonel Sanders and I was practically orange from overdoing it on a sunbed.''

But George laughed off the disastrous look as he was still ''experimenting'' with fashion and his talent was more important.

He added in an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''One thing I didn't have any doubt about, though, was my songwriting. I had a pretty unstoppable belief in my talent and once I had a foot in the door of the music industry, nothing was going to shift me.''

George Michael still has Faith jeans 4113700 News

George Michael still has the jeans he wore in his famous 'Faith' video.

The 50-year-old singer wore a pair of ripped denim trousers with a leather jacket and black sunglasses for the 1987 video and has revealed his father Jack Panos still has the garments at his house.

George said: ''My mum used to keep things like that and now my dad's got them. They were jeans I'd had for ages, so the rips were genuine. I wore them so much that they started to fall apart - I used to ask my mum to sew them.''

The 'Careless Whisper' singer hasn't worn the pants for a ''long time'' but insists he's planning on digging them out next time he visits his father and says the clothing was his idea because he couldn't afford a stylist.

He continued: ''The whole 'Faith' image was totally me - I came up with the idea and I put the look together, leather jacket and everything. I didn't use a stylist - in fact I don't think I could have afforded one. It worked, though, and I think it was quite a cool image.''

The video was a huge hit and George's fashion sense inspired pop culture in the late 1980s but he claims it wasn't intentional.

He added in an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''I remember after that video, Vivienne Westwood wanted to make clothes for me - I couldn't believe that one of the engineers of the punk image thought I was cool enough for that.''

George Michael Unveils A Free Track Ahead Of 'Symphonica' Album Release 4033845 News

George Michael has had a tough time of it over the past few years, but he's ready to show his fans he's come out stronger with his first solo album in a decade, 'Symphonica'.

George Michael on his Symphonica Tour

The 'Careless Whisper' singer hasn't exactly been out of action for ten years; since the release of 2004's number one album 'Patience', he's released a greatest hits compilation, a handful of singles and he's performed and toured plenty. However, 'Symphonica' marks an official return to the recording studio and follows his 2011 world tour of the same name which saw him play some old hits and several covers. 

The Symphonica Tour was cut short after Michael contracted pneumonia following a chest infection. He recovered, but hit bad luck again after getting involved in a car accident in May 2013 and suffered a head injury. The battle-scarred star has pulled through though and now wants to show fans just how invincible he is with what will no doubt be another seminal album.

'Symphonica' was the last album to be produced by Phil Ramone before he passed away at age 79 following a brain aneurysm. The Grammy winning music whizz has previously worked on records for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan and Aretha Franklin and worked with Michael previously on his 1999 platinum offering 'Songs from the Last Century'.

Michael was feeling apologetic for his silence over the last few years and posted a message to his fans on Twitter reading, 'Firstly, I can only apologise from the bottom of my heart for worrying you for so long with my silence.'

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en-gb"><p>Firstly, I can only apologise from the bottom of my heart for worrying you for so long with my silence.</p>&mdash; George Michael (@GeorgeMichael) <a href="https://twitter.com/GeorgeMichael/statuses/425450052719366144" rel="nofollow" >January 21, 2014</a></blockquote><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

'Suffice to say that 2013 was a year that i am glad to put behind me and that i hope you can forgive me for', he added.

The album is due to be released on March 17th 2014 through Virgin EMI and Universal Music Group and contains both cover songs and original music. The lead single, 'Let Her Down Easy', is set for release on March 17th 2014 and he is offering a free download of 'Praying for Time' on his Facebook page.

Seatbelt-Less George Michael Broke Law But Won't Be Charged 3704415 News

The police investigation into the events that lead to George Michael's near-fatal accident on the M1 motorway has concluded: "no further action will be taken" after witnesses' statements were taken.

The 49 year-old singer, who wasn't driving the car, fell out of the passenger door of a silver Range Rover driving at 70mph on the M1 motorway during rush hour traffic on May 16th this year. The alarming accident was reportedly due to the star, now a successful solo artist, "just trying to shut the door" instead of jumping, as originally rumoured.

Michael, born Georgios Kyriacos Panagiòtou, wasn't wearing a seatbelt - which is against the law and can incur a fine of up to £500 - yet the former Wham! hitmaker will not face any fines or be charged, according to The Mirror. After statements from the driver and another passenger in the car, Hertfordshire Police decided that it was against "public interest" to prosecute Michael.

A spokeswoman stated: "All witnesses have been spoken to and no further action will be taken."

According to a member of the East of England ambulance service speaking to The Daily Mail, Michael "sustained a head injury and following treatment, stabilisation and immobilisation by land and air ambulance crews, he was flown to hospital for further care." He's now been discharged from hospital where he was treated for his injuries.

100million album-selling performer George has a history of motoring offences, after several previous crashes; often under the influence of drugs. After falling asleep at the wheel as well as hitting three cars whilst attempting to park, he was banned for two years, yet has since crashed into a lorry and a shop due to driving whilst high on marijuana.

He is lucky to be alive after this latest in a series of shameful and dangerous road incidents and has once again cheated death in this latest escapade but he may not be so lucky next time. It's only a matter of time before his reckless attitude to driving gets himself, or worse - someone else, killed.

George Michael Discharged From Hospital As He Recovers From M1 Accident 3694092 News

George Michael has now finally been discharged from hospital following his harrowing car accident on the M1 motorway in Hertfordshire, England.

The 'Faith' singer suffered a nasty head injury and a bad case of shock after falling from the passenger side of a Range Rover which left him lying in the road before a fellow driver rushed to his aid. He was later airlifted to hospital. A statement on his website read, 'We can confirm that George Michael has been discharged from hospital and continues to rest and recuperate. He is well and thanks everyone for all the messages of support.'

Katherine Fox, a passer-by who approached the injured singer, told the BBC she 'saw a body lying in the road' and instinctively went into 'caring mode'. However, she initially did not know it was the former Wham! frontman she was reassuring until she discovered an article online. 'He had a deep cut above his left eyebrow which was really bleeding down his face into his teeth', she explained. 'Even if I had known who it was, I probably wouldn't have recognised him.' Despite Michael's website describing his injured as 'superficial', he was forced to remain in hospital for eleven days.

George Michael Expected To Be Out Of Hospital Soon 3683740 News

George Michael diced with death earlier this week when the former Wham! star fell out of the passenger seat of a moving vehicle whilst on the M1 motorway way in St Albans, near London. The singer was airlifted to hospital where he was deemed to have only suffered minor injuries during the incident a week ago today (May 16), but was kept overnight and is believed to have remained their for some time after.

It hasn't been made clear whether he has left hospital yet. Fellow drivers on the road at the time have since discussed the shocking moment, mentioning how close the singer ,real name Georgios Panayiotou, came to being struck by anotehr car. The whole incident has thrown George's personal wellbeing into check, with many wondering what could have happened in the seconds before he fell/ejected himself from the car. Yesterday, his publicist revealed gave an update on his condition, saying, “He is making good progress and is looking forward to getting out.”

George Michael
The singer may still be in hospital

Michael was in the car with two other people at the time, both of whom are reported to have gotten out of the car and checked on the singer having immediately pulled over to the hard shoulder after the incident. An onlooker, motorist Katherine Fox, explained how she very nearly ran into Michael after his fall, but managed to turn her car into the road to ward off any other motorists and to protect the singer. “I saw blood everywhere and a man on the ground," she said. “George didn’t say anything, he just seemed in shock in the arms of his friend. The guy holding him was quite scared. He kept saying to George, ‘Are you all right mate?’ I think George was lucky he didn’t die.”

Michael looked to be getting his life back in check following a near-fatal bout of pneumonia in later 2011, culminating in a performance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics. However this latest incident could potentially be a cry out for help from the troubled star. After all, how easy is it to fall out of a moving Range Rover? Not very.

George Michael Kept Under Observation After Near Death Experience 3680571 News

You can pretty much guarantee that no one sitting on the M1, on Thursday afternoon (May 16) would have attributed the traffic jam to George Michael falling out of his car at 70mph. But, that’s exactly what happened, and the WHAM star has been kept in hospital.

He was found on the road by paramedics at the scene of the accident after tumbling from his range rover ON THE MOTORWAY. His spokeswoman said: "Following the traffic accident on Thursday, we can confirm that he is still in hospital. We are keen to stress it's purely as a precaution for observation.” Despite the seriousness of the accident, Michael is said to only have suffered minor injuries, which is somewhat of a miracle. "He did suffer a couple of bumps and bruises to the head and that's why they are keeping him in - to keep an eye on him. He is doing better. He is making good progress and is looking forward to getting out." What the spokesperson should address is exactly how exactly George Michael is alive and not the opposite: dead.

Don’t get us wrong, we love a bit of George – his performance in Extras was funny – but if you fall out of a car on the motorway, at 70 miles-per-hour, you should be dead. Not morally, geometrically. Anyway, we’re glad he survived this ordeal, and we wish him the best in his recovery. Piece of advice: stay in the car until it’s completely stopped.

He is making good progress and is looking forward to getting out." What the spokesperson should address is exactly how exactly George Michael is alive and not the opposite: dead.

Don’t get us wrong, we love a bit of George – his performance in Extras was funny – but if you fall out of a car on the motorway, at 70 miles-per-hour, you should be dead. Not morally, geometrically. Anyway, we’re glad he survived this ordeal, and we wish him the best in his recovery. Piece of advice: stay in the car until it’s completely stopped.
