Boy George Facing Jail Time

...

A jury found Boy George guilty of falsely imprisoning male escort Audun Carlsen.

Via Dailymail.co.uk :

Boy George faces jail next month for falsely imprisoning a rent boy at his flat. The openly gay 80s singer was told in court today that custody was 'the most likely option' after a jury convicted him of handcuffing Norwegian male escort Audun Carlsen to a wall at his flat in Shoreditch. The 46-year-old singer, whose real name is George O'Dowd, also beat Carlsen, 29, with a metal chain as he tried to escape from his flat in east London after a kinky photographic session, Snaresbrook Crown Court heard.

Mr Carlsen fled in just his underpants as dawn broke and he alerted police. O'Dowd handcuffed Carlsen to a wall while, he claimed, he investigated whether he had tampered with his home computer on April 28 of last year.

He accused Mr Carlsen of taking photos of himself from his laptop, taken by O'Dowd when the pair met three months earlier. O'Dowd denied to police that he punched or assaulted Mr Carlsen or swung a chain at him as the escort fled the flat, and suggested the bruises Mr Carlsen sustained could have been due to the fact that he was HIV positive.

Um, imprisonment? That isn't really 'punishment' for him.

This is nothing new for Boy George. He is always in the newspapers here for bizarre things he gets up to.

LOL about Jason's comment.

I just hate it when folks squander talent. I mean, instead of beating a rent boy he should spend his time crafting a comeback. It would be a tough climb from fat slag to top-40, though. Just saying.
