Boy George's 1995 autobiography was titled Take It Like a Man, which presumably was the same advice he imparted to Audun Carlson 12 years later, while handcuffing the male escort to a bed at his London home. What had started out as a simple sex-and-naked-photos session apparently went south when, after a few lines of coke, the former Culture Club singer accused Carlson of hacking into his home computer. After cuffing him with the help of an unnamed man, George brought out a box of leather straps, chains and sex toys, and informed Carlson, "Now you're going to get what you deserve." Carlsen wrenched himself free from his shackles and managed to escape, though not before being lashed several times with a chain on his way out the door. The singer was eventually convicted of assault and false imprisonment for his involvement in the incident, and sentenced to 15 months in jail in the U.K. In the U.S., Boy George ran into a similar dilemma in 2005, when he called cops to report a burglary in his Manhattan apartment and cops found cocaine when they responded to the scene. He was sentenced to community service and wound up cleaning the streets of New York.
