George Michael Lets The Sun Go Down On Partner Kenny Goss

Pop legend George Michael might have a new theme for his announced “gay” album—solitude. The out singer  announced during a concert today that he and longtime boyfriend Kenny Goss had split some time ago.

At the opening-night show of his “Symphonica” tour at the Prague State Opera House, Michael told the audience, “Kenny and I haven’t been together for two-and-a-half years… It’s time to be honest.” In March, Michael called an article in the British press claiming they had split “complete bullshit” and just two days ago, Goss was profiled in a Dallas Morning News article as still standing by his man.

Calling his love life “turbulent,” Michael dedicated a new song, “Where I Hope You Are,” to Goss, who he said brought him, “a lot of joy and a lot of pain.” Goss, a native Texan, met Michael at L.A.’s Beverly Hot Springs in 1996 and allegedly didn’t know who the Grammy winner was.

Right, because the two obviously built their relationship on a foundation of honesty.

    Even when they were “together” they weren’t together. They had an open relationship for years so they were never really a committed couple.

    “”Goss, a native Texan, met Michael at L.A.’s Beverly Hot Springs in 1996 and allegedly didn’t know who the Grammy winner was.””

    I LOVE it when people claim things like that. Yeah, just a few years after the FAITH CD, one of the biggest of the decade a gay man in LA doesn’t recognize George Michael.

    Howard Stern used to LOVE busting the boyfriends and girlfriends of celebs on stuff like that. Whenever they would say “And I didn’t even know who he was”. He would always respond with something like…”Lets see, you’re trying to be an actress in LA, you are at a party for the show (Insert name of show) and yet you are claiming you didn’t know who the star of the show was? Yeah, and Yoko didn’t know who John Lennon was either…get her outta here!

    Who would get off with some guy who’s rich, takes massive amounts of drugs and then gets arrested having sex with the homeless in parks? Guess somebody must…NO THANKS!

    I didn’t think my disgust for George Michael could go any lower. Surprise.

  • Robbie K.

    Sounds like these two deserve each other….

    Oh grow up. Just cuz he doesn’t fit your right wing christian model of puritan sex bullshit doesn’t mean the guy isn’t an asset to the gay community. You guys need to loosen your bonnett ties and the tight necked buttons on your little house on the prarie dresses.
    Pathetic.

    @George412: “Even when they were “together” they weren’t together. They had an open relationship for years so they were never really a committed couple.”

    Bullshit. Being in an open relationship doesn’t mean you’re not in a committed relationship. It’s entirely possible to be committed to each other completely and forever and still enjoy sex with other people. Stop imposing your relationship standards on everyone else.

    No.1 – Completely agree. Still sad for George though!

    GM made some pretty good music, better than a lot of the stuff out there now…
    Hope this album lives up to that.

    Kenny has finally reclaimed his pride and self respect. He was to good (and that is not meant to direspect George) for George and put up with way to much BS. George, like many of us, still has many demons to work through and I personally wish him well along that path of discovery.

    Love and respect to them both.

    The man has a lot of demons and cannot seem to be truthful about anything. So many years in the closet, spending time tapping out tunes in the tea rooms, and pretending to be in a long term relationship when he thought that would get him more fans. I think it’s dangerous to mistake a celebrity’s talent for his or her integrity. They’re completely separate.

  • ROFL

    Oh, another open “relationship” falls apart?

    I’m shocked, just shocked.

    No exclusivity = no commitment = no real relationship = “we haven’t been together for 2.5 years”

    Don’t fool yourselves, an FB isn’t a “relationship.”
