British singer George Michael, who became famous with the band Wham! that sold more than 100 million albums in his career,  died on Sunday at the age of  53 as announced by his publicist.

Part of the statement by his publicist read, "“The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage,”

Thames Valley Police said the ambulance service had attended a property in Goring in Oxfordshire, where the singer lived, at 1342 GMT on Sunday, the BBC reported.

They said they were treating the death as unexplained but there were no suspicious circumstances.
Michael was due to release a documentary in 2017 after a period of living as a virtual recluse in which he hit the headlines for a series of bizarre incidents linked to drugs.
Earlier this month it was also announced that producer and songwriter Naughty Boy was working with Michael on a new album to come out next year.
Michael was best known for his “Club Tropicana”, “Last Christmas”, “Careless Whisper” and “Faith”.
