George Michael has been leaking information regarding the News of the World phone hacking scandal on Twitter. The police contacted him and want to interview him regarding potential information he has.
The long and short of it (so many George Michael jokes right now) is that Rebekah Brooks knew Michael and told him how the News of the World obtains their information. She said that it was the police rather than the public that gives the tabloid their tips. Michael said he could concur being no stranger to arrests himself. He claims to have witnessed cops calling newspapers after his arrests and being paid handsomely to do so.
This would be important in the ongoing investigation into the News of the Worlds illegal phone hacking. Many of the alleged illegal activities were the News of the World paying off members of the police.
