A spokesperson for George Michael has moved swiftly to dismiss reports the stricken star is suffering from heart problems after he was hospitalized with pneumonia in Austria.
The Careless Whisper hitmaker was admitted to a medical center in Vienna on Wednesday, just hours after his management cancelled upcoming dates on his Symphonica tour.

His representative Connie Filippello has warned fans it may take Michael “a while to get better,” but she insists rumors the 48 year old is being treated for a heart problem are completely false, stating, “That’s total nonsense.”

The former Wham! star was due to perform in Vienna on Monday, but axed the concert just two hours before showtime.
