March 7 (UPI) -- George Michael died of natural causes due to heart disease and a fatty liver senior coroner for Oxfordshire Darren Salter has stated in a new report.

"Enquires into the death of George Michael have been concluded and the final post mortem report received," Salter said in a statement Tuesday.

"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," he continued.

"No further updates will be provided and the family requests the media and public respect their privacy."

Michael's boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, following the release of the report, wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of himself and the iconic singer, "The truth is out."

Fawz then wrote in a separate tweet, "All the nasty comments, press and 999 were very cruel and unnecessary whatsoever, Now I hope to receive some real LOVE," in response to rumors surrounding Michael's death.

Michael died inside his London home on Christmas day at the age of 53.
