Boy George Just Can’t Buy Love

And he’d just about have to, wouldn’t he?: Boy George guilty of false imprisonment:

Boy George, the flamboyant former Culture Club front man, was convicted Friday of falsely imprisoning a male escort.

Norwegian escort Audun Carlsen had alleged he was handcuffed to a wall hook at the singer’s east London apartment on April 28, 2007. Prosecutors said Carlsen was held by the singer, whose real name is George O’Dowd, for under an hour.

Carlsen, 29, said O’Dowd swung a metal chain at him when he got loose and fled the apartment following a naked photo shoot.

O’Dowd, who is 46, admitted he restrained Carlsen with handcuffs while trying to figure out if Carlsen had tampered with a computer. The singer said he believed Carlsen had previously removed photos of himself that were taken by the singer.
