George Michael’s devastated sister Melanie Panayiotou “died of a broken heart” after never getting over her famed brother’s death, according to The Sun on Sunday.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Melanie, 55, died on the third-year anniversary of George’s death at age 53 on Christmas Day.
The hairdresser was reportedly found dead in her London home on December 25 by her sister, Yioda.
Melanie’s cause of death has not yet been revealed, though police told reporters it is not being treated as suspicious.
She is now expected to be buried in the same plot next to George, who has no headstone because the family doesn’t want fans to besiege the grave site.
