George Michael regrets going to war with Sony
    2017-October-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

GEORGE MICHAEL regretted suing his record label in the 1990s, a new documentary reveals.

The star took Sony to court in 1992, claiming he had little control over his work, with the company treating him as “no more than a piece of software.”

He eventually lost the case, which put his career on hold for five years.

“It dented the armor in his career in the United States,” said Michael’s friend and former manager, David Austin, who produced the new Channel 4 documentary.

“He was a guy who was firing on all four cylinders and it just, it blew that candle out in the States without a doubt.”

“He says in the film, and when we were talking about the court case and how we were going to handle it, and I didn’t realize this at all, but he turned around to me and said how he regretted it.”

The Sony trial coincided with a devastating period in Michael’s personal life, during which his partner Anselmo Feleppa discovered he was HIV positive and, later, died of an Aids-related brain haemorrhage.

In the documentary, which Michael was working on 48 hours before his death last Christmas, the star reveals he never fully recovered from Feleppa’s death.

He describes the Brazilian designer as his “savior,” who helped him feel comfortable about his sexuality.
