George Michael died of natural causes as a result of heart disease, the BBC reports. An investigating had been under way since the singer-songwriter and Wham! vocalist died at his home on Christmas Day last year. The coroner said in a statement: “As there is a confirmed natural cause of death, being dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis and fatty liver, the investigation is being discontinued and there is no need for an inquest or any further enquiries.”
