George Michael star appeared in the comedian's 2007 documentary "Stephen Fry: HIV and Me", but ordered his scenes to be cut from the final edit after the show's producer made comments Michael found offensive.

The singer told fans on his Twitter.com blog on Wednesday, aPRIL 13, he is disappointed Stephen Fry never contacted him to clear the air, prompting the actor/writer to reach out on the microblogging site.

Michael wrote, "Believe me I was a fan (of Fry's), I really liked him... I have to explain, Stephen did nothing directly, but his producer said something publicly that was such a dreadful lie I thought about legal action. And I was shocked that, given the nature of our friendship until then, Stephen never called me to explain or distance himself from the liar.

"I was just terribly hurt that yet another gay man seemed happy to let me hang out to dry for the entertainment of homophobes. Having said that, I still think Stephen is a lovely man... and a huge talent."

When Fry saw the posts on Thursday, April 14, he sent a message to Michael asking him to get in touch by email, writing: "George, I'm very distressed to think that something when (sic) wrong over the doc (documentary). All I knew was that you'd decided not to be included in the doc. That's literally all I know. Is there more? So sorry to see you upset about this. Do email xxx"
