While it has been tough for fans who have been kept in the dark regarding Michael Schumacher's health, times have been tougher for the Formula One legend himself and well as for his family.
The family believes that Michael himself wouldn't want everything to be publicized as he has always set a boundary between his professional life and personal life. While there have been attempts to reveal the athlete's condition, the family has openly announced that they will be willing to file charges to anyone who blatantly violates their family's privacy.
Corrina, Michael's wife, has reportedly sold their holiday home and jet for a total worth of $38 million. The reason for selling is that Corinna believes that her husband will not need it anymore. News also has it that she has plans to sell their chalet in Meribel, France.
Corrina has recently admitted that her husband will never fully recover from the accident in French Alps in 2013, implying that it is impossible for him to fully regain his health.
Rumor has it that Schumacher now requires 24/7 attention. Reportedly, he is now unable to speak and immobile, but continues to be taken care of in a special clinic inside his home.
It has been revealed that Schumacher is currently in their mansion with an overlooking view of Geneva, and that he can no longer walk and talk.
Meanwhile, Bernie Ecclesone, CEO of the Formula One Group, has not been able to visit Michael for a reason. "I don't want to see Michael like that. I remember Michael as he was. That is how I want to see Michael. If he comes back, that is how I want Michael to be."
In an interview, Michael's manager Sabi Kehm said, "Michael always had strict rules that we worked out together. He kept his job strictly separately from the private side, and he never deviated from that. There was never a 'home story', and no journalist ever had his phone number."
Let us continue to expect the family to be silent about Michale's condition as a sign of respect to an athlete who has managed to keep his private life private.
