I’m sure you’ve seen the letter from George Michael to his fans on his official web-site that was posted earlier today. It reads as follows:
My Dear Fans,
As usual I am overwhelmed by the support and genuine concern that so many of you around the world have expressed in recent weeks. I want to thank you all sincerely, and also to reassure those of you who worry so much for me. I fully appreciate the seriousness of my current situation, for which I truly apologise.
You will understand that it would be wrong of me to go into details before the court case has ended but I feel you should know that on the day after the incident I checked in to a clinic for a 14 day detox program here in London, which has been followed by ongoing outpatient drug counselling several times a week. Personal problems which I had tried to deal with myself had clearly got the better of me, and I am sorry that my pride has prevented me from seeking help before now.
I would also like to express my thanks to those whose discretion allowed me to begin this process in private, which has helped me greatly.
With love and my apologies,
I guess it took a lot for George to write this letter; it’s not a pleasant thing to face these kind of issues, and even worse to have to face them in public. Here’s wishing him every success in dealing with his problems, and coming out the other side feeling errr… good.
