One of George Michael’s lovers today reveals how the tormented singer confessed to him that he was desperately addicted to anti-depressants.
Carlos Arturo Ortiz believes the superstar may have killed himself after telling him he was deeply unhappy.
He said: “George’s death knocked me sideways, although it didn’t surprise me. I found him a lovely down-to-earth man, but also a very melancholic person who I feared might one day take his own life.
“He told me he was addicted to anti-depressant medicine and trying to wean himself off it and confessed he was unhappy.
“We talked about his superstar status and I told him I thought that with his fame and talent and money he had all he needed to be happy in life.
“But when he started talking about the anti-depressants he took I asked him outright if he was happy in life and he replied, ‘No, I’m not.’
