Pop singer/DJ Boy George is in court for his home-made version of 'chain mail'. Although, to be more precise it should be 'chain male'.
The former Culture Club singer (real name George O'Dowd) has been charged with false imprisonment after it was alleged that he handcuffed and chained a male escort (Auden Carlsen) to a wall at his home. Accusing him of hacking into his computers at home.
The two had initially met on the gay social networking site Gaydar.co.uk. They arranged to meet for a "pornographic photo shoot". It appears that shortly after that meeting, Boy George believed Auden Carlsen to have tampered with his home computers. The singer sent him several "bizarre" emails until eventually sending an email apologising for the tone of previous emails and requesting a second meet up. It was on this second meeting that Boy George and an unidentified other man, handcuffed and chained the male escort to the wall.
Wonder if Mr Carlsen asked "do you really want to hurt me?". That surely would have tipped Boy George over the edge. Haha.
