Who is Kenny Goss?

Kenny Goss is an American art dealer who is best recognized as the long-time former lover of the late singer George Michael who he dated from 1996 to 2009. He spent 13 years with Michael and is considered one of the legendary vocalist’s few great lovers. Hailing from a dysfunctional family with alcoholic parents, Goss had a difficult childhood. Despite the early challenges he faced, he managed to gain admission into the prestigious University of North Texas. He entered the business of selling cheerleading supplies at the age of 23 and went on to become one of the most successful salesmen in the field. Although a millionaire today, Goss is best known to the masses for being one of the long-term lovers of the singer George Michael. In 2018, Goss joined the legal battle over Michael’s wealth, claiming a vast portion of the deceased singer’s estate and properties that have been valued at around £105 million. His claims are based on the grounds that he helped the singer through hard times. Looking back on his life, Goss says that he is proud of his sexuality and never regrets the years he spent with the superstar singer.
