George Michael buried in private funeral

British pop superstar George Michael was buried in London on Wednesday in a private funeral some three months after his death on Christmas Day, his publicist said.

Several luxury cars with blacked-out windows arrived at and later left Highgate Cemetery in north London. His partner, Fadi Fawaz, his former Wham! bandmate Andrew Ridgeley and Spandau Ballet bassist Martin Kemp were pictured attending.

The British media said that Michael's mother is buried there.
