‘Father Figure’ Avoiding an HIV Test?

Pop celebrity George Michael has reportedly asked that an interview he gave to British television personality Stephen Fry about his fears of testing HIV positive not be broadcast on the BBC. The interview was conducted as part of the two-part BBC program, Stephen Fry: HIV and Me. In the program, Fry examines the HIV/AIDS epidemic and takes an HIV test himself.

Michael allegedly said that he hadn’t been tested in three years, and that he was fearful of getting tested because the result might be positive. His former partner, Anselmo Feleppa, died in 1995 of an AIDS-related illness.

A spokesperson for Michael said he was asking to remove the interview because the singer “felt it was too close and too personal a journey” to be included.
