George Michael’s former lover Fadi Fawaz is HOMELESS after moving out of the £49-a-night Travelodge he lived in after ‘trashing the singer’s £5m home’
- Fadi Fawaz was ‘living in tiny 300sq ft room in Travelodge in Covent Garden’
- He has reportedly checked out of hotel and is sleeping rough in Covent Garden
- Arrested last month for ‘going on rampage and smashing windows’ at ex’s home
George Michael’s former lover Fadi Fawaz is reportedly homeless after moving out of the £49-a-night budget hotel he lived in after being chucked out of the late singer’s £5million house.
Unemployed Fadi checked out of the central London Travelodge on Monday and is now thought to be sleeping rough in Covent Garden.
The 46-year-old former celebrity hairdresser had checked into the hotel in Covent Garden after he allegedly ‘went beserk’ and smashed in the windows of his ex’s exclusive Regent’s Park property last month.
In a Facebook post he told friends he had become homeless, as reported by The Sun.
He said: ‘George Michael the ikon (sic) 3 years later and his lawyers still not done anything to sort me out so in last few days I have been sleeping in the street in Covent Garden instead of being in my home.

Unemployed Fadi had swapped his glitzy life of private jets and five-star hotels for a single 300sq ft room in a Travelodge in Covent Garden
George Michael’s former lover Fadi Fawaz (pictured together in 2012) had been living in a £49-a-night budget hotel after being chucked out of the late singer’s £5million house
‘They took the key by a trick the (sic) came out with it and now 2 months later still not heard anything I was staying in hotel and 2 days a go (sic) was stopped. What a cheap ikon this George f*****g Michael is.’
There is a homeless shelter not far away from the budget hotel he was staying at, but he has not been seen in the area.
One person said: ‘I used to like Wham! back in the day, but I haven’t seen Fadi round here.’
Fadi was arrested on suspicion of aggravated criminal damage after causing ‘significant’ damage inside George Michael’s home.
George Michael’s family mounted a legal bid and had Fadi removed from the property.

Lebanese Fadi had been squatting at the home since his lover’s death on Christmas Day in 2016.
He had been keeping his head down since moving into the Travelodge, only emerging for a cigarette or when housekeeping staff need to make his bed, The Sun reports.
Bizarrely, when the paper approached him outside the budget hotel he flat-out denied being George Michael’s ex.
He told the reporter: ‘I’m not Fadi. Sorry to disappoint you. It’s so tragic what happened to George. It’s a terrible loss. But I don’t really know him. In fact I’ve never met him.’

Fadi – who was left nothing in the late Wham! star’s £97m will – denied living at the hotel and claimed he only visited to charge his mobile phone

Fadi – who was left nothing in the late Wham! star’s £97m will – also denied living at the hotel and claimed he only visited to charge his mobile phone.
He dated George from 2012 until his death, and was the one to discover his body. He claimed at the time his death was suicide.
But in March 2017 a coroner ruled the Faith singer died of natural causes and had dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.
While squatting at the property, Fadi became a ‘vampire recluse’ who only left at night, according to a Daily Star source.
His family have tried to urge him to seek mental health treatment.
