George Michael’s recent hospitalization has more conflicting reports than Benghazi. A new witness, Katherine Fox, says that she was driving behind Michael and that his injuries went beyond the “superficial cuts and bruises” line we were sold.
Katherine Fox’s George Michael story was told to The Sun. Fox says that Michael actually fell out of his car while it was going 70mph down M1, and that he tumbled for some time, picking up some pretty gruesome injuries along the way.
“He was lucky he didn’t die,” the 23-year-old said of Michael’s accident.
She pulled over after seeing his car slam into the carriageway, and saw him laying on the highway dazed and covered in blood.
“There was a nasty cut on his forehead and the back of his head. There was blood all down his face and on his teeth,” she said. “He was breathing and conscious but in shock.”
She and other drivers came to a screeching halt after Michael took his tumble, and she specifically recalled seeing blood all over the street, thinking a jaywalking man had been hit.
“I asked what had gone on and was told he tried to open the car door and shut it again because it wasn’t shut properly and apparently fell out at 70mph,” she said.
“George didn’t say anything, he just seemed in shock. He was sitting down against a car and in the arms of his friend. The guy holding him was quite scared. He kept saying to George, ‘Are you all right mate?’ ” she recalled.
“I think George was lucky he didn’t die,” she said.
Originally, it was reported that George Michael had been in an accident, but that his injuries were superficial. His boyfriend, Fadi Fawaz, told the press “I’ve spoken to him and he’s good,” shortly after the accident.
Michael has since been released from the hospital.
