George Michael has reportedly split up with Kenny Goss, his partner of 15 years.
According to The Sun, Kenny walked out on the pop legend after growing tired of his hard-living ways.
George’s well-documented problems with cannabis, such as his drug-driving conviction last year, are thought to have caused a rift between the pair.
A source told the paper: “The writing has been on the wall for some time. There are only so many second chances Kenny was prepared to give.
“He’s been loyal to George since day one, but that hasn’t always been reciprocated.”
Work pressures had also taken their toll on the couple.
The source explained: “Kenny runs an incredibly successful gallery. With Kenny in the US, they spend so much time apart – and that’s got worse over the last couple of years.
“It’s really sad but hopefully this could be the wakeup call George needs.”
The troubled Wham! star was sentenced to eight weeks in jail last year after he crashed his car in to a branch of Snappy Snaps near his north London home.
He later admitted during an interview with Chris Evans that he had become “a poster boy for cannabis.”
