Michael — who came out as gay in 1998 — and Fawaz have been together since at least 2012. While they were very private about their relationship, the pair had been spotted holding hands on various outings throughout Europe. They were last photographed in Switzerland together in 2015. The Grammy winner previously dated Anselmo Feleppa, who died of complications from AIDS in 1993, and Kenny Goss.

Since Michael’s death, dozens of celebrities have taken to social media to pay tribute and remember his groundbreaking career, including his Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley, Madonna, Mariah Carey and Elton John.
