George Michael Died Of Natural Causes

George Michael was only 53 when he passed away last year, and there were lots of rumors about what might’ve killed him. (Specifically, there was a lot of speculation about drug use contributing to his death.) But as CBS News reports, Michael died because of completely natural causes. According to a UK coroner’s report, “dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver.” In other words, his heart was both swollen and unable to pump enough blood. A previous autopsy had come back inconclusive. There will be no inquest into Michael’s death.
