It’s been three months since George Michael passed away on Christmas Day last year and his burial finally took place this week.
“We can confirm that the funeral of the singer George Michael took place today,” the statement read. “Family and close friends gathered for the small, private ceremony to say goodbye to their beloved son, brother and friend.
“George Michael’s family would like to thank his fans across the world for their many messages of love and support. We ask that the family’s wish for privacy be respected so that they can continue to live their lives privately, away from any media intrusion. No further details will be released.”
He was buried in London’s Victorian Highgate Cemetery, alongside his mother, Leslie, who passed away two decades ago.
