Is another George Michael sex scandal brewing?
Several British papers are reporting that Michael was seen emerging from the bushes of a London park last Tuesday — and they are saying this was following an alleged sexual tryst with another man, who goes by the name Norman Kirtland.
Police reportedly have no plans to investigate, but the alleged encounter nevertheless conjures up memories of 1998, when Michael was caught by an undercover police officer (allegedly) trying to have sex in a California public bathroom.
The timing is intriguing as well, for the latest alleged incident comes as Michael plans to marry his longtime partner, Kenny Goss. The two have said they will marry later this year, and Goss is said to be supporting Michael despite the alleged reports. Goss insists that Michael only wants his sex, not yours, and both say that you gotta have faith… in the legal system.
Michael, 43, released a statement insisting the stories are not true. The singer, who has sold an estimated 80 million records over the course of his career, also made headlines in February when he was arrested on suspicion of drug possession after being found slumped in his car at the corner of a busy London intersection.
