George Michael’s sister, Melanie Panayiotou, has died aged 55, exactly three years after her brother.

The family confirmed in a statement that Melanie “passed away suddenly” over Christmas.
Her brother, pop icon George Michael, also died on Christmas Day 2016 at his home in Goring-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

“We would simply ask that the family’s privacy be respected at this very sad time,” the family said in a statement released through lawyer John Reid.

“There will be no further comment,” they added.
