London: Furious George Michael has denied rumours that he has split from his long-term partner Kenny Goss by setting the record straight live on TV and Twitter.

Reports claimed on Monday morning that Goss had ended their 15-year relationship because of the singer`s issues with drugs.

However, Michael hit back at the reports and said the newspaper that made the claim was ‘lying through its teeth’, reports the Daily Mail.

Sources had told The Sun that the singer’s dope-smoking and his drug-driving conviction last year were the reasons for the split.

“There are only so many second chances Kenny was prepared to give. He``s been loyal to George from day one, but that hasn``t always been reciprocated. It``s really sad, but hopefully this could be the wake-up call George needs,” they said.

The story was being discussed on Channel 5 chat show ‘The Wright Stuff’, which prompted Michael to rang the show personally to deny the story and let his fans know that he and Kenny were still very much an item and suggestions they had split were ‘untrue’.

“It is complete bull**** about myself and Kenny breaking up. Don`t believe this story,” he said.

“We`ve had our problems but he`s never had a problem with my lifestyle. I love Kenny very much,” he added.

He also took himself to his Twitter page and wrote: ‘Would someone Tweet 5wrightstuff and tell them the Sun is lying through its teeth as usual’.

His fans have come out in full support of the singer as they tweeted back saying they were on his side and were relieved to hear they hadn`t split.
