Carlsen said he feared for his life when Boy George “pounced on him and tied him up”. “I was convinced I was going to die,” he said. “George handcuffed me to a hook by the bed as they held me down.” He further alleges that Boy produced a box of whips and sex toys and told him: “Now you’ll get what you deserve.” Carlsen escaped by pulling the hook from the wall and fleeing.
Scotland Yard today confirmed they are investigating an allegation of false imprisonment and common assault, believed to have occurred in the early hours of Saturday.
Last summer Boy was ordered to sweep the streets of New York for five days after he admitted wasting police time. He was given the community service sentence after pleading guilty to falsely reporting a burglary at his apartment in Manhattan, where police ended up finding his stash of cocaine.
