The couple met in Los Angeles and had a 13-year open relationship.

Goss explains in the TalkTV interview that Michael chose him because “his mother would like him”.

Goss explained, “He felt that his mother and I were very much alike. And in many ways we were.

“I’d say I’m a lot more of a play-by-the-rules guy and she was kind of like that. I’m also not judgmental at all.”

When did he date George Michael?

Goss was in a relationship with the pop star for 13 years, from 1996 to 2009.

The couple were not together when the singer died, although Goss has claimed Michael still supported him financially.

In 2021, Goss reached a settlement with Michael’s trustees after demanding financial payments of £15,000 a month from his former friend’s estate.

Michael had left none of his assets to Goss or his friend Fadi Fawaz at the time of his death.

Instead, he left his £97million estate to his sisters, father and close friend.

What did Kenny Goss say?

Goss has been candid about his time with Michael and shared intimate details about the pop star’s battle with addiction.

Of his death, he said: “We all expected him to die. When we lived together I had spent so much time worrying about him.

“Honestly, he hated the fact that I was so worried about him. What’s the line he says in one of his songs? He says, ‘I can see it in your eyes when you look at me like that, it tears me in two.’ And it really did. I just didn’t know what to do.

“I used to worry about him all the time… when you love someone, you worry about them.”

Goss mused that “he was really trying” to save Michael’s life.

He said: “What always strikes me is that I’ve been incredibly happy with him for a lot longer than I’ve worried about him.”

Adding: “He always said I saved his life. I think that’s a bit much, but I really tried.”
