George Michael passed away from heart failure on Christmas Day, leaving an estimated $100 million fortune that is now expected to be split among his godchildren. They include:
[*] Roman and Harley Moon Kemp — children of his bandmate Shirlie Holliman
[*] Bluebell Madonna — goddaughter of his former partner of 13 years Kenny Goss (Geri Halliwell is the mother)
[*] James Kennedy and his brother
George Michael and James’ father, Andros Georgiou, were close friends whose families emigrated from a suburb of London to Cyprus together and later famously had a falling out.

James posted a tribute to his godfather on Instagram which read “Rest In Peace George I’m heartbroken we never got to speak again after so many years, I can’t believe this has happened, please watch over me in heaven Godfather. Enjoy paradise I love you. ❤️”
He also posted a photo of his dad and George together:
It’s also expected that George’s sisters Melanie and Yioda and boyfriend Fadi Fawaz will be named as heirs.
