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.

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...

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!
