“The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.”

According to BBCNews.com, local police in the U.K. said there were no suspicious circumstances.

Born Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou to a Greek immigrant father and British mother, Michael grew up in working class London and went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide over a career spanning nearly four decades.

The singer-songwriter was best known for his massive success in the early 1980s as half of the duo Wham!, with Andrew Ridgeley, before his breakout solo hit, “Careless Whisper,” led him to pursue a career on his own.

His debut solo album, Faith, sold more than 20 million copies and won Album of the Year at the 1989 GRAMMYs.
