George Michael died on Christmas Day back in 2016, but he might roll over in his grave if he were to get a hold of details of what’s contained in a new book that takes some serious and personal shots at the legendary singer. 

“George Michael: A Life” is set for release on June 28, and author James Gavin did not hold out any weird and sordid details from the manuscript. According to Gavin, after Michael finished his tour in 2008, he “lived in a haze” and “slept until mid-afternoon then stayed high on pot for almost every waking moment.” 

Here’s more. And it does not paint Michael in the most glowing terms. 

“He sat at his computer playing video games, binge-watched TV, arranged GHB-fueled trysts and took midnight joints to [Hampstead] Heath,” a famous gay crushing area in Europe. 

Okay, about the GHB, which is more commonly known as “the date rape drug.”  

Again, here’s Gavin providing more details in the book to Page Six.

“For Michael, GHB seemed heaven-sent. Apart from fueling his sexual compulsiveness, it made a depressed and self-loathing man feel attractive; it brought joy where there was little. GHB gave him confidence on Hampstead Heath and with the most intimidatingly sexy escorts. But it also took him to a frightening new level of self-destruction. GHB is more addictive than meth and riskier in all varieties.”

The book details the multiple arrests in Michael’s background and has salacious details about his sex life.

If you are a big fan of Michael and want to believe he lived an un-complex life of virtue, don’t buy this book.
