George Michael

The singer is heard talking about his first love and also being dropped by Sony Records in a new film.

In the new documentary, George Michael talks about his first boyfriend, Anselmo Feleppa who sadly passed away from an Aids-related illness.

It was this incident that led the late singer to come out about his sexuality to his parents, and he discusses losing his Brazilian partner in his a new film about his life called 'Freedom', which began filming before the star's untimely death.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "George speaks very movingly about Anselmo being the first love of his life and how important he was in his life.

"It is very emotional and he clearly never forgot him and left a huge ­impression on George."

George also speaks candidly about being dropped and re-signing to Sony Records in 2003 after a court battle, which he lost, over the label working him like a "pop slave".

A Sony spokesman said: "This ­documentary will be a must-watch for fans as it was his last piece of work."

The star, who penned his number one hit 'Jesus to a Child' about his first lover, met the dressmaker in a hotel in 1991 and said in an interview in 2007, that it was "love at first sight".

However, he also admitted their relationship was "distorted" because of the circumstances with Anselmo's health.

At the time, he said: "It was a very strange first love. It was very distorted by the situation. This was the first love of my entire life.

"It was tragic that I lost him, but it was a wonderful experience meeting him. There have only been three times I've really fallen for anyone.

"And each time, on first sight, something has clicked that told me I was going to know that person. It happened with Anselmo across a lobby."

The documentary is set to air later this year.
