George Michael died of natural causes

The singer George Michael from the 1980’s group Wham was said to have died of natural causes as the result of heart disease and a fatty liver, a British coroner says. Darren Salter, senior coroner for Oxfordshire, says a post-mortem has found that the singer died of “dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.”

Dilated cardiomyopathy is a condition in which the heart’s ability to pump blood is limited, while myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle.

Michael died at his residence in Oxfordshire county, southern England, on Dec. 25. He was 53. An initial autopsy failed to determine the cause of death, and his publicist stated at the time that the singer had not been ill.

Salter said Tuesday that because Michael died of natural causes, no inquest will be held.

George Michael passed away on December 25, 2016.
