The Jewish George Michael Revealed

Published on January 06, 2007 with No Comments

George MichaelIs George Michael Jewish?  Surely, it was his Wham bandmate Andrew  Ridgley who was the Jewish guy?

For nearly 20 years this debate has gone on in the Jewish community, but no one has ever managed to ask the question that was on everyone’s lips.

Until last year.

At a special London screening of George Michael’s documentary, A Different Story, which Michael attended, I spent a few minutes with the former Wham star and asked about Ridgley’s Jewish background for a story I was planning to write. Michael then pointed out: “You’ve got that wrong guy, Andrew is not Jewish, I’m Jewish.”

So for a few minutes, Michael than started to explain more about how his mother Lesley and her family, were Jewish and felt they had to keep it quiet especially after what happened with World War II and that one day he would like to explore more of his Jewish roots.
