MICHAEL PULLS HIV CHAT FROM DOCUMENTARY
Pop star GEORGE MICHAEL
has ordered an interview in which he discusses his fears of HIV
to be removed from a forthcoming documentary. The singer was
quizzed for BBC show Stephen Fry: HIV and Me.
In the show comedian Fry
examines the spread of the virus and undergoes an HIV test
himself. Michael was originally willing to talk about HIV -
which claimed the life of his former partner Anselmo Feleppa in
1995 - but he changed his mind after the talk was taped. A
spokesperson reveals, "On reflection, he felt it was too
close and too personal a journey.
It was too personal for
Anselmo's family to revisit." In July (07), the show's
producer Ross Wilson revealed that Michael had refused to
undergo an HIV test himself, explaining, "George says he
does not believe in tests. He says he finds the wait for results
too harrowing and that he hasn't had a test since at least 2004
due to his fears it might be positive."
