George Michael is too scared to take an HIV test. The 'Fast Love' singer hasn't been tested for the virus for at least three years because he fears the results could come back positive. The revelations feature in a BBC2 TV documentary 'Stephen Fry - HIV and Me' by Michael's friend, comedian and actor Stephen Fry.
The programme's producer, Ross Wilson, said: "George says he does not believe in tests. "He says he finds the wait for results too harrowing and that he hasn't had a test since at least 2004 due to his fears it might be positive."
The former Wham! star was arrested for "engaging in a lewd act" with an undercover police officer in a Beverley Hills public toilet in April 1998, and admits to enjoying "sexual freedom" despite being in a long-term relationship with boyfriend Kenny Goss.
Michael celebrated his 44th birthday on Monday and received a unique present from Geri Halliwell, who gave her friend a sexy chauffeur. Michael is banned from driving after being found slumped at the wheel of his car at London traffic lights last October, so Halliwell has presented him with a chauffeur for the next 12 months. A source revealed the former Spice Girl chose someone who was "nice to look at" and would also be a "good companion".
