PRAGUE (AP) -- George Michael says he has split from long-term partner Kenny Goss, partly due to the fallout from Goss' struggle with alcohol addiction.
The 48-year-old singer — appearing at the Prague State Opera House on the opening night of his Symphonica tour — told the audience Monday, "Kenny and I haven't been together for two-and-a-half years."
"My love life has been a lot more turbulent than I've let on," he said, dedicating a new song, "Where I Hope You Are," to Goss. "This man has brought me a lot of joy and a lot of pain."

Michael also honored the late Amy Winehouse, calling her the only British artist to have left him in awe during his 30-year musical career.
The former Wham! singer had previously denied allegations he and Goss had separated, but said Monday, "It's time to be honest."
