Fawaz, a celebrity hairstylist with whom the late star was romantically involved for several years before his death, took to Twitter to shut down the rumors on Saturday.
“Let me make it clear that I’M NOT BANNED TO GO TO THE FUNERAL none of it is true, ITS NOT TRUE, NOT TRUE NOT TRUE NOT TRUE,” he wrote.
Fawaz followed up the post with a sweet black and white photo of Michael giving him a kiss on the head while he smiled brightly.
“This image says it all,” he captioned the snap.
The posts come after the singer’s childhood friend Andros Georgiou said the family has not invited Fawaz to attend George’s burial, according to The Sun.
