George Michael is back in London after reportedly spending time in rehab in Australia.

The White Light singer apparently spent two months receiving treatment for emotional anxiety and other issues at a centre in New South Wales reported The Sun.

George's partner Fadi Fawaz is said to have stayed with him at the facility.

The star nearly died after suffering from pneumonia in 2011 and in October he cancelled his shows in Australia, saying he was wrong to think he could work through the "major anxiety" that had plagued him since then.

He said in a statement on his website at the time: "By way of explanation all I can say at this time is that since last year's illness I have tried in vain to work my way through the trauma that the doctors who saved my life warned me I would experience. They recommended complete rest and the type of post traumatic counselling which is available in cases like mine but I'm afraid I believed (wrongly) that making music and getting out there to perform for the audiences that bring me such joy would be therapy enough in itself.

"Unfortunately I seriously underestimated how difficult this year would be and although I was right to believe that the shows would bring me great happiness and that my voice would recover completely (I truly think that some of my recent performances have been my best ever) I was wrong to think I could work my way through the major anxiety that has plagued me since I left Austria last December."

He promised to receive the treatment he felt he needed.
