Boy George Arrested On False Imprisonment Charges

80's popstar BOY GEORGE has been arrested on suspicion of assault and false imprisonment charges. The singer has been accused of kidnapping male escort Auden Carlsen and chaining him to the wall of his east London, England flat on Saturday (28Apr07). Carlsen claims he was hired by Boy George - real name George O'Dowd - to go to the singer's flat at the early hours of Saturday morning to pose for photos. The ex-Culture Club star started taking pictures of him in kinky gear - but Carlsen claims he feared for his life soon afterwards. He says, "George said he was popping out for milk at 5 am. I heard him come back and I walked into his bedroom wearing just my T-shirt. I was jumped on by George and another man. "George handcuffed me to a hook by the bed as they held me down." Carlsen accuses the singer of producing a box of sex toys and whips when the other man left, telling him, "Now you'll get what you deserve." The escort managed to free himself by pulling the hooks from the wall and alerted the police from a nearby newsagent. He adds, "It's ironic that his biggest hit was Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - because I'm sure he did want to hurt me. "I was convinced I was going to die." The singer has been bailed while detectives probe the allegations. O'Dowd received community service last year (06) in New York when police found cocaine in his apartment.

No matter who this deviant was, I hope they throw the book at them. To find that it was the has-been Boy George, just makes me extra sick. My prayers are with this victim and his family, and for B.G., I hope that after this, we never hear about him again. Life is too short.

hey i agree with you he couldnt hurt a fly he is the nicest thing to slice bread and if the escort cant handle what he does fo ra living then yes he should stay off his back and become a singer or find a real job. Boy George may have said things to him but it was all foreplay and the escort didnt get it he should stay with women then not tring to get with men. I also think that when the ecsort saw Boy George package he got scared and figured if he would be hurt if it would go in and then figured he would get money from Boy George and that wont happen because everyone will behind Boy George he is an idol and even kids today that dont know who he is has heard one or more of his songs and love them and he has alot of support. TIP: All famous people leave ESCORTS alone all they want is money and they will do anything to get it i mean anything.Also if he was in there for photos then he needs to figure out how many hours he was paid for because if he didnt fulfill the hourly time then he owes Boy Georg money or the rest of the time he paid for.Boy George like dvaughn49 said and i agree North America has your back and we wouldn't let you fall nomatter what a stupid ESCORT said you did so rock on and on and have a happy hoildays and a happy new years with who ever you will be with at the time and oh just to let you know you were really hot when you were young and you are still smokin hot today love you and always will Bambi...

1. the ESCORT claims that Boy Goege was going to hurt him and even kill him well if he has never been with a man i can see how it would hurt him but Boy George couldn't hurt a FLY.2. Ok an ESCORT job is to do what the person wants them to do that why they get paid so what did he think may happen when he got there knowing that Boy George was gay.3. This is just like what happen to Micheal Jackson the Escort wants money because he cant make enough so he wants to put it on Boy George someone with alot of money.4. all i have to say to the escort is if you cant handle your line of work then stop laying on your back and become a singer.thank you and Boy George North America is behind you all the way...

1. I think that escort best be say nothin bout Boy George. He needs to learn to satisfy his customers or to get work in a job he be doin good. If you ain't be doin it good you ain't be doin it right. FO SHO!!!! But, anyways, I think dat escort is keepin Boy George from the US and I ain't having dat! so you best go and admit that you just ain't the thang you wanna be so you got to slam what you ain't!

hey i agree with you Boy Georg couldnt hurt a fly and he is sweet as sliced bread and warm as a teddy bear also. I believe that once that ecort saw Boy George's package that he got scared and noe doing this so that he wont be called a wimp. The escort needs to get a life and go to women because it is clearly he cant handle men he is scared to death of the dick. Tip: all famous poeple dont go and get escorts because all they want is money and they will do anything for it. Also he claims that it was for just photos well hoe many hours did Boy George pay for because if the escort didnt fulfill all the time he owes him money back or he needs to finish with the time. Like dvaughn said and i agree that North America is behind you and we wnot let you fall nomatter what a stupid escort saids about you so rock the hoildays and new years with whoever you want because you are the BOMB. Like one of your songs say "You spend me right round baby right round" and BOY GEORGE you do and to let you know i thought you were really hot when you were younger and your ever smokin today and im glad to have been able to defend your right and always will I love you Boy George and i hope the best for you.
