LONDON—Members of George Michael’s family say they are “extremely upset” that a recording of the emergency call reporting his death was leaked to the press.
The family’s lawyers released a statement Sunday saying they want an investigation, “and we will expect the culprit(s) to be dealt with appropriately.”
It says Michael’s family and friends are appalled “that such a personal, painful and clearly confidential recording has been leaked.”
Fawaz says, “I’ve been trying to wake him up for the last hour. … He’s gone.”
An initial autopsy on the 53-year-old former Wham! frontman was inconclusive. The results of toxicology tests have not been disclosed.
