GEORGE Michael was given heroin substitute methadone in the run-up to his death, his cousin has sensationally claimed.
Andros Georgiou fears the superstar, 53, died because he took the drug plus anti- depressants, GHB and booze.
George is said to have been taking methadone to help calm his anxiety
He says George as given methadone by an associate in a bid to calm his anxiety – two days before he was found dead at home on Christmas Day 2016.
And he said the star then asked the pal for more pills, which were taken by taxi disguised as a Christmas present, to his home in Goring, Oxon.

George’s cousin Andros Georgiou says methadone may not have shown up in George Michael’s toxicology report
Andros, 55, accused the singer’s boyfriend Fadi Fawaz of holding up the release of the will by threatening to tell secrets of his life.
And he said the star’s fortune could be £50million less than the reported £105million.
Methadone is an opioid used to treat people with a heroin dependence
Talking about the singer’s final days, Andros said: “George went to see someone, who he knew as a friend.
“This person is a former addict, and he told him about these pills and said they calmed him right down.
