Oh no! This sounds much more serious than we had originally anticipated!

George Michael was forced to cancel the remaining dates of his Symphonica tour after he was hospitalized in Vienna, Austria with pneumonia, but according to new reports, the illness is so serious that many members his family has flown out to be by his bedside!

Not only has 75-year-old father Jack Panos has been son's side, but also the singer's sisters Melanie, and Yioda, 53, as well as current boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, and even his ex, Kenny Goss!

A family friend explains:

"His whole family are with him. They are very close-knit. George is just such a lucky man in that sense. He’s so adored. Kenny of course is very concerned. He has been in touch every day. They will always be the best of friends."

And Dr. Christoph Zielinski and Dr. Thomas Staudinger, specialists in Vienna treating Michaels, issued the following statement yesterday:

"George Michael has severe community acquired pneumonia and is being treated as an inpatient. His condition has stabilized and he is responding to treatment. From the current point of view, the time until recovery cannot be estimated, but he will not be able to perform the rest of the tour. Besides medical treatment, complete rest and peace and quiet are mandatory."

Poor thing!

And how vague everyone seems to be regarding the length of his recovery is only that much more nerve-wracking!

But we're happy to hear that so many of his loved ones are with him during such a frightening, difficult time!

Get well soon, George!

You're in our thoughts!

  1. 1

    He probably has AIDS



  2. 2

    get well George! a true music legend and one of the greatest singer songwriters of his generation. I still think he has something more serious going on thats not being said. I just hope the AIDS rumours are not true.



  3. 3

    I hope he gets better. EVERYONE please keep the hateful, acidic comments out of this. For goodness sake, lets act like we were born with a conscience.



  4. 4

    hopefully it is not Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia



  5. 5

    So what if he did have Aids. What is your point?



  6. 6

    His face changed to that HIV face that people who have Aids get….



  7. 7

    40-ish white men do not normally get this , and certainly not white men worth over $100 million…..UNLESS THEY HAVE…



  8. 8

    Maybe they will let George troll the hospital men's rooms ONE LAST TIME before his family PULLS- THE-PLUG…..



  9. 9

    You don't call an ex-boyfriend to a hospital ward IN A FAR-AWAY COUNTRY if he's just recovering & resting…..



  10. 10

    AIDS anyone? Anyone for AIDS?



  11. 11

    the man has PNEUMONIA not fucking AIDS, you all make me sick…a gay man gets Pneumonia and all of you jump to the conclusion that he has AIDS.



  12. 12

    HIV face? I didn't know there was a face to HIV.

  13. bbcb says – reply to this

    Wake me up before you go go.
    All the best George . get well soon.

    Re: cuddlyguyjohn – Back in the '80s, pneumonia was what many gay men were thought to have had before they died.



  15. 15

    Get well George and stay strong.



  16. 16

    He has AIDS and will very likely be like Freddie Mercury and refuse to admit is, while infecting scores of other hookups that he meets in public bathrooms.

    IMO if you have AIDS it should be the law in every country that your name and personal info be made public so everyone knows to stay away from sex with you.



  17. 17

    There is too much fear, hate and stigma around HIV, making it impossible for PHA to disclose. How and when is that going to change?



  18. 18

    Holy shit, what is up with everybody? For starters, white men over 40 CAN get pneumonia, my father had it a couple of times. Second, even if it is AIDS, who cares? He doesn't have to disclose to the public if he doesn't want to. Get well soon, George!
