This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
80s pop icon George Michael was involved in a car crash on the M1 motorway in the UK Thursday evening and had to be airlifted to hospital!
Luckily, it seems George's injuries are not too serious, as his rep informed the press that the Wham! singer only suffered superficial cuts. phew!
"George Michael was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a traffic accident yesterday evening. No third party was involved."
Hmm, no third party?! That's very curious indeed! And no news yet as to the circumstances surrounding the crash…
We wonder if illegal substances were involved?
Back in 2010, George got into trouble with the law when he crashed his car while under the influence of Cannabis, so maybe this time around the driver (who is NOT George) was also under the influence of… something?
Well, whatever, we're just glad George is ok!
