7894733 STEPHEN Gately: Anorak’s look at Stephen Gately in the news: the X Factor plugs, the drugs, Georgi Dochev, gay sex, murder and more gay sex

IN “STEPHEN’S LAST HOURS”, the Sun continues the focuses on Stephen Gately, the Boyzone singer who yesterday was Gately used dop e and is now Stephen ”.

He has been Stephen in the Sun before, notably when he was Stephen killed by 8hr binge

And he was Stephen when he was:

“I FOUND STEPHEN PALE AND COLD.”

Having established a rapport with the remains of Stephen Gately, in which he is Gately when there is talk of drugs and Stephen when he is being laid to rest, the Sun now re-introduces Bulgarian student Georgi Dochev, the 25-year-old who found the singer’s body.

THE “third man” who befriended STEPHEN GATELY and his partner on the night the BOYZONE star died saw his body the following day – but thought he was just sleeping and walked away.

The third man..? The mystery is turning into a thriller. Man dies from natural causes and the tabloids write their own plot.

The Sun has seen the testimony Mr Dochev gave Majorcan police.

The student, who met Stephen and Andy at a gay bar in Palma, also recalled the shocking moment when he finally realised the 33-year-old singer had died.

At the gay bar, gay bar. Is that relevant? Is the gayness relevant to dying of acute pulmonary oedema? That testimony :

“Last night, at around 1.30am, the witness found himself in a bar ‘Euphoria’ in Palma. He started a friendship with a couple of lads whose names he does not know. That after a while, in this bar, they left together to another bar called ‘Black Cat,’ staying there until approx 4am – and they invited him to accompany them home to carry on having a few drinks. Afterwards, at around 4.10am, the three of them took a taxi and went to the address of the couple he had met in Port Andratx. Once at the residence, they were talking and they became intimate, until 5.30am.”

Mr Dochev then went to bed. The other two remained on the sofa.

“Around half an hour later, he got up and he saw that the couple were sleeping on the sofa. One of them sat with his feet stretched out and the other curled up on the cushions in the foetal position. He sits next to the boy on the sofa and, looking at him, gets the feeling something is wrong as he was very motionless and he could see no breathing movements or little snores. He then took him by the hand and tried to wake him up without success.

He headed quickly to the partner of the dead boy’s bedroom and woke him up, saying something was wrong with his partner as he was not reacting.

Both of them headed to the lounge and tried to sit him up, seeing that he was very stiff and in a foetal position with his face on the cushion. On sitting him up, they saw his lips and face were blue and that a liquid was coming out of his mouth. As they thought that it was possible he had swallowed his tongue, his partner put a finger in his mouth. And, at that moment, they realised he was dead so they called the emergency services at between 1.15-1.30pm.”

A man has died. No mystery, then. No need to speculate nor encourage others to:

Asked if there had been an argument or anything else that might have made the singer angry, he replied: “No, everything happened like a normal night of partying.”…

Medics hope toxicology tests will determine if the cannabis or other substances acted as triggers.

And Mr Dochev, who has not spoken to the Sun , although his testimony is deemed good enough to cover their front page:

Last night Georgi was trying to tout his story to Spanish TV stations for £70,000.

Anyone else suppose that fee is too high for the Sun to pay?

He said he had been invited to Stephen’s funeral by the family. But he added: “I don’t know what the people will tell about me going to the burial because I know there will be some talking – if I’ve been his lover or not.”

And the story builds. And once a fake face has been written, it becomes repeated. And we get his, reported today by Newspost Online :

Late singer Stephen Gately from the band Boyzone died because of an eight-hour drinking binge, it has emerged.

So how has the Sun’s news gone down with its rival tabloids?

Daily Star : “STEPHEN SEX CLAIM”

BOYZONE star Stephen Gately was involved in a three-in-a-bed romp with a hunky stranger hours before he died, it was claimed last night.

Was it? Well, no. Mr Dochev makes no mention of sex; indeed, the three were in the lounge.

The Times : “I had sex with Gately, says Bulgarian who found singer dead”

And the Mail’s Jan Moir delivers this loaded gem:

Through the recent travails and sad ends of Michael Jackson, Heath Ledger and many others, fans know to expect the unexpected of their heroes – particularly if those idols live a life that is shadowed by dark appetites or fractured by private vice.

Stephen Gately died of natural causes. So who’s next, Jan?

There are dozens of household names out there with secret and not-so-secret troubles, or damaging habits both past and present.

Robbie, Amy, Kate, Whitney, Britney; we all know who they are. And we are not being ghoulish to anticipate, or to be mentally braced for, their bad end: a long night, a mysterious stranger, an odd set of circumstances that herald a sudden death.

That’s not being ghoulish? Jan has more. She is
