When TV crew follows up a regular people we always assume that they have a lot of money. The truth is not as it seems because some of them have a normal job, such as we first thought about James Kennedy, but they are paid to be on television, and also they make money with endorsements, sponsors, and other appearances.
However, the truth between James Kennedy is not that simple. It was revealed that his father managed WHAM! And George Michael solo career and his mother were an actress and model. What is more amazing, it was revealed that George Michael is his godfather.
Apparently, George’s father and James’s grandfather were from the same village in Cyprus and they immigrated together to London where they started new lives. This friendship led to Andros (James Kennedy father) and George becoming friends, too. When George became worldwide sensation first with WHAM! and after in solo career, Andros was always there for him.
When George established Hardback Records in 1986 Andros was managing director of Aegean Records. Andros was in charge of Aegan when this record company became one of the first adopters of digital music distribution, even before iTunes or Spotify.
Andros and George were so close that James called him a dad’s cousin once on Vanderpump reality show. George was a great part of the family. However, Andros and George haven’t spoken for years. Everything became different when George was arrested in 1998 for engaging in a lewd act in public restroom. It had only gotten worse when Andros sent to HELLO! photo of George’s late mother. However, the long year friendship ended when they had an argument about Ginger Spice where Andros called her a bitch. That was their last conversation.
