GEORGE Michael would not swim in the sea because he feared being attacked by a shark, it has emerged.
Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley revealed the pop legend even refused to go surfing with him in Cornwall.
Andrew, 56, said George, who he called Yog, “didn't like the water” after seeing 1975 film Jaws.
Asked if his pal — famously arrested over a lewd act in an LA public loo in 1998 — was a fan of outdoor activities, he joked: “He did have his own outdoor pursuits.”
He added: “No, Yog was not a great fan of the outdoors — he just didn't like the sea.
“No, after Jaws, he didn't like doing the water.”
Andrew also revealed to The Times magazine that he earns “somewhere between £50,000 and £100,000 a year” from co-writing royalties for
George’s 1984 No1 Careless Whisper.
George died on Christmas Day 2016, aged 53.
