The last known photo of the iconic pop singer George Michael was snapped at a restaurant. See it above.
Here are other versions. The photos were snapped as Michael dined out at a London-area restaurant.
Michael, 53, died on Christmas Day, 2016, “peacefully” in his home. His publicist released a statement saying he had died of a heart attack while in bed. His current partner, Fadi Fawaz tweeted that he found Michael dead in bed.
People magazine said the photos were taken in September 2016 at a restaurant in Oxfordshire and that Michael appeared to be in “high spirits.” However, other reports said he appeared withdrawn. It’s not clear whom Michael was with in the last photo.
In the final photos, Michael looks bloated and almost unrecognizable. Compare the last photos above to a photo from the 1980s legend’s heyday:
