Michael revealed onstage Monday during the opening night of his Symphonica tour in Prague that he had separated from Goss two and a half years ago. The former Wham! singer had previously denied reports that he and his partner had split.
"It's time to be honest," he told the crowd. "My love life has been a lot more turbulent than I've let on." Referring to Goss and his ongoing struggles with alcohol, the singer added: "This man has brought me a lot of joy, and a lot of pain."
He did dedicate a new song to Goss called Where I Hope You Are, which he said is the first breakup song he's ever written.
