He is very much looking forward to the release of his new single in July. Given the personal nature of this matter there will be no further comment.'

London Ambulance Service confirmed two ambulances were called at 8am on Thursday. ‘We were called just before 8 am on May 22. We sent two ambulance crews and staff treated one patient, a man, who was then taken to hospital,’ a spokesman for the ambulance service said.

In 2013 Michael was rushed to the hospital after falling out of a car on a freeway. He nearly died in 2011 after coming down with pneumonia.

    I hope he’s all right.

    I must say in that photograph above he looks incredibly handsome….must be the beard or the jaw bones.

  2. Boston says

    Love George Michael, but he definitely has some demons. Wish him all the best.

  3. Joe says

    Why won’t he just admit he has AIDS? It would explain the random pneumonia, all these health problems, etc. and would probably take scrutiny away from his drug problems/erratic behavior.

  4. MARCO says

    Totally none of my business why he collapsed, just hope he get’s better and stays well.

  5. Alain says

    He’s a beautiful, talented man and I agree, his inner demons keep getting him into trouble. Really hope he doesn’t end up like Michael, Whitney or Whinehouse

    George and his video for Faith is how I knew I was gay. At the beginning it shows him leaning against one side of a jukebox and the girl leaning against the other side. I noticed I was much more interested in him in that leather jacket and tight jeans. Get well, George. I don’t care why you’re sick, you legend. Just get well. :)

  7. Distingue Traces says

    Best wishes to him of course.

    He is someone who has been insulated by his money from the necessity of recovery, and it’s been very sad to see.
