What a showman.
During Monday's opening night performance of his Symphonica tour at Prague State Opera House, George Michael didn't just give fans a moving rendition of Amy Winehouse's "Love is a Losing Game," the pop star also revealed that he and longtime partner Kevin Goss have broken up, the Daily Mirror reports.
"It's time to be honest," the onetime Wham! man told fans.
"My love life has has been a lot more turbulent than I've let on. This man has brought me a lot of joy and a lot of pain," Michael explained, before dedicating a song to ex, titled "Where I Hope You Are."
The 48-year-old singer—who has experienced some turbulence the public was aware of—reportedly had a decade-long relationship with the former flight attendant, and the two had planned to marry in 2005, when the U.K. legalized gay marriages, officially known as the Civil Partnership Act.
The couple ended the relationship two-and-a-half years ago, according to the singer.
And as for Winehouse, it's no secret the singer was (and still is) a huge fan of the young star who passed away last month, tweeting, "Amy was, in my opinion,the most soulful vocalist this country has ever seen."
He went to tweet, "I can't quite believe it....PLEASE PLEASE would her record company re-release her tenderest love song, 'Love is a Losing Game' as soon as I seem to remember it getting lost in the chaos of Christmas releases a few years back. It would be HUGE now, and It's the way she should be remembered. As one of the greatest singer songwriters of all time. I hope she is at peace now."
