George Michael died of natural causes


A coroner has confirmed that George Michael died of natural causes.

According to senior coroner for Oxfordshire Darren Salter, the pop star suffered a dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.

The star died aged 53 on Christmas Day at his home in Oxfordshire.

Thames Valley Police originally said his death was unexplained but not suspicious and an initial post-mortem examination was “inconclusive”.

The coroner said in a statement: “Inquires into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post-mortem report received. No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy.”
