Elton John appears to have ended his public feud with George Michael, saying, "George and I are fine."
Two years ago, John said the former Wham! star was miserable and needed to get out more. Michael responded with a furious open letter saying John was no friend of his.
In an interview Friday on ITV, John said with a laugh, "George and I are fine. He came and stayed down (at) my house last year."
"It's up to him what he does with his life, and I don't really want to get into that anymore," the 59-year-old rock legend said.
John provoked the pair's fallout when he said of Michael: "He's quite happy just being at home all the time, and I think that's a waste of talent. There seems to be a deep-rooted unhappiness in his life and it shows on his latest album."
The rocker hit back by saying: "Elton John knows nothing about George Michael. We have spoken rarely in the last 10 years, and what would probably surprise most people is that we have never discussed my private life. Ever."
Earlier this year, Michael, 43, said the comment by John had made him "really vulnerable to the press."
Michael first gained fame as one-half of '80s duo Wham! His 1987 solo album, "Faith," sold more than 10 million copies.
He is scheduled to begin a European tour in Barcelona, Spain, on Sept. 23, according to his Web site. He hasn't toured since 1991.
In 1998, Michael was arrested for lewd conduct in a public toilet in Los Angeles after being spotted by an undercover police officer. Soon after, he said publicly for the first time that he's gay.
He later released a single and video "Outside" that poked fun at his arrest.
