Prison Official Will Go to Jail for Selling George Michael Gossip to Tabloids

GEORGE MICHAEL

George Michael's brushes with the law are notorious, but his most recent stint behind bars will end with a prison official going to jail. Amanda Watts, 43, will be sentenced next month after being found guilty of selling information about the gay singer to British tabloid, The Sun.

Michael was sentenced to eight weeks in Highpoint Prison and served half of the time before being released. While high on marijuana, Michael crashed his car into a photography store in early July. He has repeatedly been in trouble with the law for driving while intoxicated.

Watts admitted selling stories about Michael's stint in jail to the tabloid for £2,100, or $3,200 in U.S. currency. She was granted bail until her sentencing hearing, but was warned that she will serve time, according to The Guardian.

"You should understand the fact I’m bailing you until then is to enable you to make appropriate arrangements," the judge told Watts as she wept. "A prison sentence is inevitable. I’m sure you understand."
