Former Wham singer George Michael is slamming gossip that he has split from his partner of 13 years, Kenny Goss, and is insisting they are still very much an item. The pop star had reportedly broken up with Goss back in December, after the art gallery owner grew tired of Michael’s run-ins with police for drug use and very promiscuous behaviour. According to Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper, Goss finally walked away from the relationship weeks after the singer was arrested in a men’s toilet block on London’s Hampstead Heath, a very popular gay cruising ground. But George is refuting the rumors, and is claiming they are only currently apart because Goss is preparing an exhibition in Dallas, Texas. A spokesperson for the star says, "There is no truth in the matter at all. Kenny has been away in Dallas where he owns a gallery but is scheduled to return home this Friday. They are planning a lovely weekend together."

Former Wham star George Michael and his partner Kenny Goss are displaying their contemporary art collection in a Texas gallery. The Goss-Michael Foundation's exhibition, in the couple's gallery in Dallas, Texas, is currently showcasing edgy pieces by British artist Damien Hirst, including his work "Saint Sebastian, Exquisite Pain," featuring a black calf whose body has been pierced with dozens of arrows.Goss says, "We want to expose the Dallas art community to work that they've quite potentially never seen if they weren't able to travel, these works that in some ways may be a little controversial for one thing, a little strong."But let's face it, art a lot of times is about sex, love, death, loss."Native Texan Goss, who has been with the singer for 12 years, says the gallery enables the pair to share a portion of Britain's art scene with a U.S. audience: "It works great for us. We live in Britain almost all the time. We have a house here."So we collect amazing art in Britain, bring it to Dallas and everybody gets to see it. It keeps us busy in both places."
