Boy George has reportedly been arrested and released on bail after a man accused George of assaulting and falsely imprisoning him.
Auden Carlsen has claimed he got chatting to the former Culture Club star online and was invited to George’s east London home in the early hours of Saturday morning to pose for photographs.
Auden claims George initially started taking photos as agreed but then: “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.”
“I was convinced I was going to die.”
Auden claims George and the man then produced a box of whips and sex toys and told him “now you’ll get what you deserve” - but Auden managed to pull the hook from the wall and escape to a nearby newsagents, where he alerted the police.
A police spokesperson has confirmed that they are investigating an incident but as standard, refused to identify those involved, just saying that “a man in his forties has been arrested in connection with the allegation. He was taken to an east London police station but has subsequently been bailed to return on a date in July.”
