The cause of George Michael‘s death at the age of 53 has been revealed, with a coroner confirming the singer died of natural causes resulting from heart and liver disease.
As the BBC reports, Michael was suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy (in which the heart’s ability to pump blood is decreased) with myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and fatty liver, according to Oxfordshire’s Senior Coroner, Darren Salter.
Salter says there is no need for an inquest into Michael’s death, because there was a “natural cause of death”.
At the weekend, Michael’s former partner Kenny Goss told The Sunday Mirror, “I think his body just gave up. All these years, it was just weak.
“We just want closure, we want the funeral to happen, it’s been a long time now.”
