This project was close to his heart: Until the end George Michael was working on a documentary about his life - and said it quite openly about his fears, sadness and his love life.
On October 16, 2017 - almost a year after his death - the film is finally aired on British television - and the Daily Mail was allowed to advance take a look at the documentary entitled 'Freedom'.
Like the English newspaper reported the singer to give it a highly emotional insight into his inner life and tell how futile he felt his life to date. 'Daily Mail' quoted from the movie:
I think that was all a waste of time, a waste of effort.
He never processed the AIDS death of his great love!
The reason for this statement is likely to have included the mourning for his then-boyfriend Anselmo Feleppa. The Brazilian was Michael's great love and died in 1993 of AIDS. The musician's never gotten over it. "I was absolutely destroyed on the ground, when I found out that he had an incurable disease."
Especially because the two had very little time together. In 1991, Michael and Feleppa learned at a concert of the singer know - and love. "I've never been so happy in my life."
His mother died of cancer - and George Michael fell into a deep depression
but the death of his first love was not the only blow that George Michael had to cope with. Only four years later, he lost his mother to cancer: "When my mother got cancer, I felt taken in the crosshairs of God. I have never experienced such depression."
It was George Michael at some point too much:
There was always afraid - either dread or fear of the next bereavement.
The success as an artist and his new significant other Fadi Fawaz could not permanent help from this emotional depth to him. On December 25, 2016 George Michael died at age 53 of heart failure.
