Reaction is pouring in from prominent celebrities on the passing of George Michael. Elton John and George Michael were close.

Sara Dallin from Bananarama posted pictures of her good times with George.

The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.” Here is the Obituary.
