George Michael has denied his civil partnership ceremony with
partner Kenny Goss was called off over reports he "cruised"
for sex with strangers.
"It's never been an
issue between us," he told Channel 4 daytime presenters
Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.
The 43-year-old phoned
the programme to deny reports of an encounter with a man on
London's Hampstead Heath.
He said the "wedding"
ceremony had been put back over fears of "intrusion"
by the press.
"With all the
rubbish I've had to put up with in the last six months, we
wouldn't get a small private wedding, which is what we want,"
"I wanted something
small and quiet, but I don't even think we'd get away with that
at the moment."
The former Wham! singer
begins his first UK tour in 15 years this September.
Extra concert dates were
added in April after early ticket sales exceeded expectations.
