Radar tastelessly “exposes” George Michael’s BF as “secret” adult film star

The fact is, Fadi Fawaz isn’t in any sort of scandal whatsoever. For years, it’s been widely known that he filmed a few adult scenes for Berlin’s Cazzo film studio in 2006 under the name “Isaac Mazar;” a fact anyone can verify with a simple Google search. (We wrote about it back in 2011.)

Judging by Radar’s article, you’d think this non-news had just surfaced:

Fazi Fawaz, the man who claims to have found George’s Michael’s dead body Christmas morning, may have had a shocking secret life as a gay porn star!

To add to the strangeness, the word YES! is emblazoned all over the page in red, and we don’t know why:

Frankly, we have no idea what’s going on here, but if he were around, we’d like to think George Michael would get a good chuckle out of the pearl-clutching tastelessness of it all.
