George Michael Doing Okay in Prison
"Spandau Ballet" star Martin Kemp has confirmed his pal George Michael is "doing okay" and coping "as well as you can expect" in prison as he serves out his eight-week sentence. The former Wham! star has been behind bars since last week when he was jailed for possession of cannabis and driving under the influence of drugs following a car crash in north London in July.
But despite Michael's recent troubles, Kemp has defended the singer, insisting the star is a good man and a "wonderful" friend. He tells Britain's Daybreak show, "I have to say, he is like one of my best friends and he is the most wonderful man that I know, absolutely without a word of a lie he is fantastic. And if you're watching today (George), I hope you're well."
And Kemp insists Michael is coping with his jail time, adding, "What can you say, you know, what can you say? I wouldn't like to talk for him... I heard he's doing okay. He's doing as well as you can expect."
