The 80’s pop singer and British bad boy continues his string of highly publicized personal difficulties. The DJ and former Culture Club frontman is in the midst of several legal problems – big surprise. It certainly isn’t the first time. He’s been charged with several drug-related offenses, failure to appear by a Manhattan judge, and falsely reporting a burglary in the past.
The latest criminal allegation against George involves falsely imprisoning a 28-year-old man. He has been ordered to appear before a court on Nov. 22. The Sun newspaper reported in April that a Norwegian man, Auden Karlsen, 28, claimed he was chained and threatened at Boy George’s London flat, where he had gone as a photo model. He was formally charged with the crime this week and released on bail.
George should probably be saving his cash instead of dishing it out to a bondsman. He’s going to be needing it when he has to come up with $62,000 to settle a debt with club promoter Kasia Saleh. Boy is accussed of canceling an appearance at Club GAY USA in Los Angeles. Last month, a judge for Manchester High Court ordered the entertainer to pay the sum to the promoter though she states he has refused the order.
The 47-year-old Boy George was a guest DJ at Essential in Manchester’s gay village last Saturday when he was approached by a lawyer disguised as a fan. The legal counsel handed George a piece of paper the DJ assumed was to autograph. The paper was actually a demand for payment, termed a Statutory Declaration, of the settlement he has been ordered to pay. Once this document is delivered, the receiver must pay his debts or be declared bankrupt. The statutory demand served in the nightclub gives him 21 days to pay up or face bankruptcy action.
Looks like this 80’s icon is headed to the jail house and the poor house.
