George Michael is reportedly set to leave the bulk of his £105 million fortune to his sister.
Hairdresser Melanie, 55, is expected to receive an estimated £50 million from her late brother’s estate, after he tragically passed away on Christmas Day.
According to reports, Michael’s other sister Yioda, 57, has also been named in his will, as have his godchildren.
A source told The Sun: “George was very close to his sisters, and the understanding is that they’re going to inherit most of his wealth, particularly Melanie who he was incredibly close to.
“She was there at many of the big milestones in his life, and was there by his side until the very end.”
Melanie cut her brother’s hair throughout his career and joined him on tour of China in the late 1980s.
The superstar’s will is also set to name his godchildren Roman and Harley Moon Kemp, the children of former Spandau Ballet’s star Martin Kemp.
Geri Horner’s daughter Bluebell, whose godfather is Michael’s ex-boyfriend Kenny Goss, is also expected to be recognised, as is his boyfriend Fadi Fawaz.
Michael also supported a number of charities including Childline and the Terrence Higgins Trust, which could receive sums.
A number of stars have paid tribute to Michael who suddenly passed away on Christmas Day due to suspected hart failure.
Sir Elton John fought back tears as he paid tribute to his friend during his show in Las Vegas on Wednesday night.
