Boy George Laughs Off Kidnap Charges

1 May 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Eighties' pop star Boy George has laughed off allegations he kidnapped a male escort and chained him to the walls of his east London, England flat on Saturday. Auden Carlsen claims he was hired by Boy George - real name George O'Dowd - to go to the singer's flat at the early hours of Saturday morning to pose for photos. The ex-Culture Club star started taking pictures of the male escort in kinky gear - but Carlsen claims O'Dowd and another man jumped on him and handcuffed him to a hook by the bed. He managed to free himself by pulling the hooks from the wall and alerted the police from a nearby newsagent. However, the pop star's brother Kevin claims George has laughed off the allegations. He says, "The bloke (Carlsen) has done a fair bit of modeling for our clothes shop, so how can what he said be true? George isn't at all annoyed at the allegations, in fact, he thinks it's hilarious. Yeah, he was arrested, but the police are always going to follow it up when someone makes a complaint like that." The singer has been bailed while detectives probe the allegations. George received community service last year in New York when police found cocaine in his apartment. »

Boy George Arrested On False Imprisonment Charges

30 April 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

80's popstar Boy George has been arrested on suspicion of assault and false imprisonment charges. The singer has been accused of kidnapping male escort Auden Carlsen and chaining him to the wall of his east London, England flat on Saturday. Carlsen claims he was hired by Boy George - real name George O'Dowd - to go to the singer's flat at the early hours of Saturday morning to pose for photos. The ex-Culture Club star started taking pictures of him in kinky gear - but Carlsen claims he feared for his life soon afterwards. He says, "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." Carlsen accuses the singer of producing a box of sex toys and whips when the other man left, telling him, "Now you'll get what you deserve." The escort managed to free himself by pulling the hooks from the wall and alerted the police from a nearby newsagent. He adds, "It's ironic that his biggest hit was 'Do You Really Want To Hurt Me' - because I'm sure he did want to hurt me. I was convinced I was going to die." The singer has been bailed while detectives probe the allegations. O'Dowd received community service last year in New York when police found cocaine in his apartment. »

Campbell Begins Community Service

20 March 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former supermodel Naomi Campbell began mopping floors at New York's Sanitation Department earlier yesterday. The British beauty will perform cleaning duties for five days, after being ordered by a Manhattan judge earlier this year to undertake community service as punishment for throwing a mobile phone at maid Ana Scolavino. Campbell has been allowed to perform her cleaning duties in private, in a bid to avoid the press furor which surrounded pop star Boy George's community service stint in the city last year. Despite being warned by sanitation boss Albert Durrell "not to wear heels" to work, Campbell arrived at the Lower East Side building at 8am in a pair of stiletto boots, although she was also carrying a pair of work shoes. »
