George Michael and Partner Kenny Goss Split
By Christo Varghese Posted Mar 7th 2011 03:30AM
The Sun reports that Goss, Michael's partner for more than 15 years, finally had enough of the singer's troubled lifestyle, especially his ongoing problems with drugs and Michael's infamous arrest and conviction last year.
In October last year, Michael had pleaded guilty to two drug charges and served 27 days of an eight-week sentence for crashing his car into a photo booth while under the influence of marijuana.
A source close to the couple is quoted saying, "The writing has been on the wall for some time. There are only so many second chances Kenny was prepared to give. He's been loyal to George from day one, but that hasn't always been reciprocated."
Goss, 51, and Michael, 47, were staying together in London, and the source went on to say that Goss ran a very successful gallery in the U.S. and often traveled to take care of his business.
And with Goss away for work, the time spent apart by the couple was considerable, and it got worse during the last couple of years.
The source concluded by saying, "It's really sad, but hopefully this could be the wake-up call George needs."
The Daily Mail reports that Michael was recently was on the BBC Radio 2's 'The Chris Evans Breakfast Show' where he told the host that he deserved to be jailed for crashing his Range Rover while high on cannabis, describing it as "karma."
He also said he was "ashamed" to have broken the law repeatedly, adding that he was now in therapy for his drug problems.
