* BOY GEORGE 'HANDCUFFED MODEL TO WALL'
Eighties pop star BOY GEORGE handcuffed a male model to a hook on his bedroom
wall after he took naked photographs of the man, a London court has heard.
The jury at Snaresbrook Crown Court in east London was told at the start of
the trial on Monday (24Nov08) how the former Culture Club frontman lured Audun
Carlsen to the bedroom of his home in east London, where another man was
waiting.
Carlsen was bundled to the floor before George slipped one end of a pair of
handcuffs over his right wrist, it was claimed.
The Karma Chameleon hitmaker then allegedly attached the other end to a hook
on the wall, but after a brief struggle Carlsen managed to escape.
The jury heard that the singer and DJ - real name George O'Dowd - had fallen
out with Norwegian Carlsen earlier after taking photos of him in a series of
erotic poses.
Prosecutor Heather Norton said George first hired Carlsen, who advertised as
a male escort on the Gaydar website, in January 2007.
He took naked pictures of the model, but the pair reportedly fell out when
George accused Carlsen of tampering with his computer.
They later made up, and Carlsen returned to the flat in Shoreditch, east
London in April last year (07) - when he was allegedly grabbed in a bedroom by
the singer and another man.
Norton told the jury, Mr O'Dowd produced handcuffs and placed one end over
Mr Carlsen's right wrist. The other handcuff was placed to a hook that was
affixed to a wall above the end of the bed.
Mr O'Dowd told the unidentified man to leave, which he did, then Mr O'Dowd
too left the room, leaving Mr Carlsen alone, chained up. While he was unable to
get loose, he managed to wrench the hook free.
After a struggle, Carlsen managed to escape, and reported the incident to
police.
George denies a charge of false imprisonment.
The trial continues. (ZN/WNWCDAM/MT)
