George Michael’s partner claims against his estate

The tabloids have been reporting that George Michael’s partner, Fadi Fawaz, 43, has put a hold on the administration of George Michael’s estate as provided for in his Will.

The superstar, who passed away on Christmas Day last year aged 53, left behind an estate worth £105 million.

George left a Will but the contents are unknown although it is believed that most of the estate has been left to his close family and god children.

It is alleged that Fadi is seeking maintenance for the lifestyle to which he became accustomed during the couple’s seven year relationship.

It is reported that his demands include the right to remain in the £5 million Regent’s Park house where George allowed him to live.

If the stories are true Fadi is likely to be bringing a claim under the Inheritance Provision for Family and Dependants Act (1975) .

Fadi will either be claiming he was cohabiting with George for at least two years prior to his death or he was being maintained by George at the time of his death.

If the facts are true and Fadi has been left out of the Will he will have a strong claim.

You should contact us immediately if you think you may have a claim under the Inheritance Act as very strict time limits apply.

We also act for Executors and beneficiaries in defending Inheritance Act claims so please feel free to get in touch with us.

We are always happy to talk on an initial no obligation and informal basis so please email or call one of the team.
