As you probably know, we lost yet another legend in the past few days. Upon hearing about the death of George Michael, Mariah Carey posted an incredible tribute to the singer. And, this one means a lot, since there’s a lot of evidence that these two were pretty close.

New reports are coming out that Michael was found by boyfriend Fadi Fawaz, which is incredibly tragic. In fact, Fawaz tweeted about “finding your partner dead peacefully in bed first thing in the morning” on Christmas, noting that it was a moment that would unfortunately stay with him for an incredibly long time.

Michael’s official cause of death has just been speculated at this point, but no matter what, one thing is certain — he was taken from us way too soon.

Michael’s relationship with Carey was definitely one of a kind. The two legendary singers inspired each other, so as you’d expect, Carey’s tribute was incredibly heartfelt.

The love was definitely shared between them. While Michael rarely used his Twitter account, he did send some sweet words to Carey back in 2014.

Since Twitter only allows so much, she even posted a longer tribute on her personal website.

He definitely did. It’ll take us a long time to get over this incredible loss.
