George Michael reportedly left the majority of his whopping £105million fortune to his favourite sister Melanie, it has been claimed.
Following the tragic death of her younger brother on Christmas Day, hairdresser Melanie is now in line to receive up to £50million, reports The Sun. The 55-year-old, who supported the Careless Whisper star as he travelled the world at the height of his fame, was particularly close to the star. His other sister Yioda, 57, will also receive a sizeable chunk of his property portfolio as well as part of his fortune, the newspaper reports. “George was very close to his sisters, and the understanding is that they’re going to inherit most of his wealth, par­ticularly Melanie who he was incredibly close to,” an insider claimed.  
“She was there at many of the big milestones in his life, and was there by his side until the very end.” The source added that it meant a lot for George to look after his family even after death. Melanie allegedly caused the Careless Whisper video, which was shot by Duncan Gibbins, who was working for Jon Roseman productions, to double its budget. Roseman called the shoot a “f***ing” disaster in the book, I Want My MTV. Melanie would cut her brother’s hair when she toured with him and during the shooting of the iconic video, she cut his hair, meaning that earlier scenes were useless. This allegedly saw the budget shoot over £17,000.
 
The family remained close with both of George’s sisters keeping a vigil at his side when he was struck down with pneumonia in 2011. The formal dividing up of George’s assets will reportedly begin after any potential inquest in the new year. MirrorOnline have reached out to representatives from the late star’s estate. The iconic star’s post-mortem will be carried out ‘in due course’, according to the coroner’s office that will be investigating his death. The 53-year-old pop star, who died on Christmas Day 2016 at his home in Goring-on-Thames, has been referred to Oxfordshire Coroner’s Office – which said there’s currently no reason to suggest his cause of death was suspicious. In a statement, the office said: “The death of Mr George Michael has been reported to the Oxfordshire Coroner’s Office. “As with all deaths where the cause of death is not immediately apparent, a post-mortem examination is to be undertaken in due course in order to confirm the cause of death. “This information is required before the coroner can decide whether there is a need for an inquest. If a natural cause of death is confirmed, there will be no need for an inquest. “All of this is in accordance with normal procedures and does not imply that there is currently any reason to believe the cause of death is in any way suspicious.”
 
George – real name Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou – was discovered in bed at home by his partner Fadi Fawaz ahead of a planned Christmas dinner.He later tweeted: “ITs a xmas i will never forget finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning.. I will never stop missing you xx”

Tributes have been flooding in from around the world, and a big concert held in George’s name is being planned by his celebrity friends.

Elton John is said to be preparing a Princess Diana-style tribute to his old mate, with whom he fell out for a period of many years over disagreements with George’s lifestyle. It’s thought that George’s death was due to heart failure, but this won’t be confirmed until the coroner has examined his body in the New Year.
