Singer had been convicted of drug driving

George Michael has been released from jail after serving less than a month of his eight-week sentence.

The singer was jailed on September 14 for dangerous driving and driving under the influence of drugs.

Michael was released from Highpoint prison in Suffolk this morning (October 11), reports BBC News.

Michael had been transferred to Highpoint after initially being sent to Pentonville Prison in north London.

Earlier this month the pop icon released a statement saying he had been treated well in jail by guards and fellow inmates.
