Boy George

Charged with Allegedly

Chaining Model

11/13/2007 9:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Boy George, 46, was formally charged in London after a 28-year-old man accused the Culture Club's cross-dressing crazy of false imprisonment and common assault.

Multiple reports from the UK claim that George (real name George O'Dowd) was ordered to appear in court on the charges on Nov. 22. The reports also claim that the incident in question took place back in April, when a Norwegian man reportedly accused George of chaining and threatening him at his home, where he went as a "photo model."

Earlier this year, Boy's brother Kevin told NME that Boy "was not annoyed" by the arrest and thought the allegations were "hilarious."

George may look a mess [love the Uncle Fester comment!] but at least the mess he looks isn't from having plastic surgery like most "has-been"s his age... I find it brave that he does not hide since he got fat and bald, he's out there being himself regardless of what anyone thinks of it. He may be weird, me may be a criminal (who knows?) but at least he is unafraid. Can't say that about these celebs and former celebs who chop up their faces and bodies and end up looking worse than reality ...

This man who accused BoyGeorge is an escort. There is always a deal before sex with an escort and WE DO NOT KNOW FOR SURE WHAT WAS THE DEAL.
I don't believe that BoyGeorge is dangerous, he has never accused in the past for sex crimes.
Maybe he overeacted or the escort guy looking for more money and easy publicity.

JUDGE YOURSELF AS GUILTY IDIOT, LIFE WITH STRONG UPS AND DOWNS ALWAYS GOES WITH THE GREAT ARTISTS, (ANY KIND OF ARTIST).
IF WE DISCARD THE CREATION BECAUSE WE DONT LIKE THE LIFE OF THE ARTIST, THEN WE HAD TO PUT INTO TRASH-CAN THE 90% OF ART.

Join the Michael Jackson club of fallen 80's singers dropping like rocks. Not only are their career gone, but their lack of common decency with it. Boy George should go to jail just because he looks like a freak!

Im just sayin    

I always have and always will LOVE Boy George! Too bad people cant see past the lip stick to realize how talented he is. This doesnt mean I am saying he is innocent because I dont have a clue what really happened. Thats for the courts to decide (I hate it when people defend their celebrity idol simply because they are a fan). But regardless, his music and style are awesome.

Good luck, Boy!
