George Michael's body 'just gave up': Kenny Goss

American art dealer Kenny Goss (left) was with George Michael for around 13 years.

Michael was found dead at his Oxfordshire home on Christmas a year ago.

An source told the Mirror: "This film feels like a huge part of George's legacy".

The BBC's Channel 4 had originally planned on airing the documentary, entitled Freedom: George Michael, later this month; the documentary reportedly explores the stories behind Michael's 1990 album, Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1. Although Michael, who finished recording the voiceover before his death, does not sing during the film, it is being dubbed his "final performance".

As well as George sharing intimate details of his life, the film also features contributions from other music legends, including Sir Elton John and Stevie Wonder.

"He talks about areas of his life never previously discussed".

Channel 4 confirmed that the film's broadcast will be delayed, explaining: "Due to the terribly sad circumstances, we are taking time to carefully finish the film which will be shown later this year".

The singer's family may have to wait until later this month as test delays drag on - and until then his funeral can't take place.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, Goss said of Michael's death: "I can't say for sure but I think his body just gave up".

Kenny and George split up in 2009 after 15 years together and Kenny revealed the pair had been in constant contact again before George's death. "All these years, it was just weak", Goss said.

George's family are now preparing to lay the Careless Whisper singer to rest, when they are finally able to have his body released from testing.

He said: "We just want closure, we want the funeral to happen, it's been a long time now".
