The singer made the decision so he can be with his son who is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
George Michael thanked his fans for their beautiful birthday wishes on Twitter yesterday.
Michael hadn't posted anything on his Twitter account since he wished Adele happy birthday on May 6th. However, yesterday he shared the following:
To my lovelies and fans around the world, thank you for all the birthday wishes, I am truly overwhelmed.— George Michael (@GeorgeMichael) June 25, 2015
He then added that he would be spending his birthday with friends and family, from his Twitter alias "The Singing Greek":
I am looking forward to spending it with friends and family, thanks again, love The Singing Greek!— George Michael (@GeorgeMichael) June 25, 2015
It was reported by a German tabloid that Michael had checked himself into a Swiss rehab clinic earlier this month, allegedly for smoking 25 joints a day. The reports were denied by Michael's rep. It seems here that he's all a-okay!
