In 1998, Michael informed CNN in an unique interview that he was gay.
“This is as excellent of a time as any,” he informed CNN‘s Jim Moret then. “I wish to state that I have no issue with individuals understanding that I’m in a relationship with a male today. I have actually not remained in a relationship with a female for nearly 10 years.”
Michael’s remarks came quickly after he was scheduled for an examination of misdemeanor raunchy conduct and launched on $500 bail. When an undercover officer saw him presumably devote the act, the vocalist was alone in the bathroom of a Beverly Hills park.
Michael, whose genuine name is Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, said sorry to his fans for the supposed event. He stated he hoped they would wait him.
