The cause of death for the Wham! frontman, George Michael, may have been ruled “inconclusive” but a former childhood friend believes he was recently reintroduced to serious narcotics.
George and Andros Georgiou were once close childhood friends and often referred to each other as “cousins.” The two had a big falling out in 1998, but the ex-music producer believes drugs killed his former friend, stating, “I just think he took too much of something, mixed with antidepressants and other drugs he was on – with alcohol.” Family and friends that have been more recent in his life claim this is false and although George may have had suicidal thoughts, he did not take his own life in the end.
In the past, George Michael had been known to abuse crack cocaine. In the United States, it’s reported 8.6 million Americans aged 12 and older admit to having used this drug. Cocaine is the second most trafficked illegal drug in the world with the largest quantities of the drug intercepted in South America, followed by North America. According to the European Monitoring Centre on Drugs and Drug Addiction, cocaine is also the second most commonly used illegal drug in Europe.
