I had wondered about a door alarm. You're right; it is the sort of thing you would do when the car was just starting (like when you're about to leave the driveway and are going very, very slowly).

Is George still in hospital? That's a long stay for what were described as 'superficial' injuries.

All very sad (and rather odd).

Maybe they don't know what happened. It seems to me the only person that knows why the door was opened was George Michael. If he has a head injury, he may not remember what happened. It's not like he would had told the driver why he was opening the door.
Well, as things stand it's a very weird story that makes no sense. If he had a panic attack and/or sustained a head injury I think he or is PR should say so. People would be more understanding of that, I think, than we are right now when all we can do is speculate.

This is certainly one of the weirdest showbiz stories I know of in recent times.

But I don't think he's obligated to tell the public everything that goes in his personal life. Just because I don't know all the details doesn't mean I'm not sympathetic to him. It's not as though he committed a crime or hurt anyone else. He really only injured himself so it's really not anyone else's business as to what really happened.

I think considering this incident could have caused a huge tragedy, and did cause big delays for lots of people, a statement would just be appreciated.

I'm not trying to paint George Michael as a villain here, but I think this is one of those stories where honest and timely answers would be helpful.

Yes, but there wasn't a huge tragedy, no one else was injured. His publicist did make a statement about him being in the hospital. I'm sure he'll say something about the incident when he's out of the hospital and feeling better. Give the guy a break. Accidents happen everyday and they are delays on roads all the time. People don't always give statements explaining what happened.

This wasn't an accident, though. George Michael opened a car door deliberately. Whatever the reason for doing it, it was a deliberate act, and it could easily have caused a multi-vehicle pile-up as other drivers took evasive action.

Not being able to open a Range Rover door seems more of a problem? Search "range rover open door".

I already said I'm not trying to vilify him so I'm not sure why you don't like me asking questions? George Michael is known for dodgy incidents and what if something like this happens again but with a worse outcome? If what has been claimed is all true, then fair enough, but surely you can see why many people are suspicious?

FWIW I agree with you…. Seriously, to argue that just because nobody got hurt ‘that’s all right then’ is like stabbing someone and just because they didn’t die you are totally innocent…

Be interesting to see how this pans out….. wonder IF/how many drugs he had in his system at the time…

Bad move by his PR – damaging the reputation of Range Rover?

Sick of these ‘celebrity’ PR’s who think the public are a bunch of imbeciles……..

You can't compare it to stabbing someone where you deliberately set out to hurt someone with malice.

I'm sure many have claimed diminished responsibility on that one

I read (think it was in Private Eye a while back), that Range Rover GIVE celebs their cars in return for column inches.

Daisy Lowe got given one (even though she didn't drive at the time) and when she got her licence, she mentioned her vehicle loads, got it pictured loads. I remember this vividly. DM and mags all mentioned it - it['s part of various celeb's contracts with their freebies: to give them a mention.

I wonder if RR gave GM one too?

Guess they'll be taking it back then.

After 2 weeks in hospital for superficial cuts and bruises. George has come out.....

'We can confirm that George Michael has been discharged from hospital and continues to rest and recuperate.

'He is well and thanks everyone for all the messages of support.'

You just don't spend two weeks in hospital for superficial cuts and bruises, do you? I don't think we will ever get the real story regarding this strange and worrying incident.

George falls out of car, driver of vehicle slams on brakes or carefully moves to the hard shoulder with a door flapping about?

Lucky there wasn't a multi car pile up or the Ranger Rover having its door ripped off its hinges by passing vehicles?

Oh God, why the hell should he have to release a statements in order for people to 'be more understanding'? Do any of you actually care about him? If I was a celebrity, I can imagine myself just thinking 'f**k you' if I was confronted with this kind of pseudo-concern.

Agree. Quite bizarre this need for an official statement.

The main thing is he's ok, and possibly is dealing with a few issues, but that's his business surely and not anything that he's obliged to share with an inquisitive public. No one died. Move on.

I kind of see what you're saying, but at the same time, celebrities' appeal is based on their personalities and their output: People buy into that and the fans that 'care', ultimately, are the people that buy his music and line his pockets.

Yes indeed.

I just wish he could sort out his demons once and for all.

But the fans bought his albums voluntarily, they bought his music because because wanted to. I don't get why he owes them anything. Sorry, I've just never subscribed to this idea that because I bought a few Britney Spears albums in the early 2000s, that she is somehow indebted to me for helping make her a millionaire. I bought the albums because I liked the music and enjoy her as a pop star. People don't buy albums out of some philanthropic desire to support a celebrity, they do it because they enjoy what they get out of the product. That's how it's always been.

Well *I* can't understand why more people aren't wanting answers with this incident. We're going around in circles though, so I'm leaving it there.
