George Michael To Leave Huge Chunk Of His £100m Fortune To Charities

A huge chunk of George Michael’s estimated £100million fortune is expected to go to charity, with causes close to his heart set to benefit one last time from his generosity.

Charities such as Childline, the Terrence Higgins Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support, who all received lump sums of money from the altruistic star, are expected to be left a portion of his estate.

The Wham! singer is also expected to leave a slice of his fortune to his godchildren, who include Roman and Harley Kemp - the children of his band’s vocalist Shirlie Holliman and her husband Spandau Ballet bassist Martin Kemp.

He is also expected to have ensured his older sisters Melanie and Yioda, his boyfriend Fadi Fawaz and his cousin Andros’ two children, who are also his godchildren, will be left financially stable.

George’s estimated fortune is made up of royalties from his lucrative music career, as well as properties including a £5million Oxfordshire mansion, an £8million pad in North London, a £2.5million pad in Los Angeles and a £3.5million home in Sydney.
