OMG! Boy George Says “I Slept With Prince!” See The Details…
Lawwwwd today! 80’s pop singer, Boy George has just unleashed a BEAST of an allegation and has the internet and mainstream media on FIRE right about now! Apparently he made the claim that he had sex with the legendary Prince at some point in his life. How true is it? We have no idea and it’s also worth mentioning that he tried to backtrack on his words immediately after he said it. Here is what was reported via DailyMail:
He’s only been on the show for a couple of months, but he’s already courting controversy. The Voice coach Boy George, 54, brought the show’s production to a halt recently when he said he’d slept with singer Prince, 57.
The newcomer made the shocking claim during the show’s live audition stage in front of a studio audience. Sitting on the judging panel alongside Will.i.am, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson and singer Paloma Faith, the foursome boasted about who they’d collaborated with…
Boy George enthused: ‘I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson.’
Paloma hit back: ‘Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.’
To which George reportedly replied: ‘Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.’
A production source told the newspaper that the crew couldn’t believe what they had heard and the crowd went ‘absolutely wild.’
They added that the other judges, especially Will.i.am, thought it was brilliant and kept on high-fiving him.
The source said: ‘Production staff had to come up on stage and speak to them. After that, Boy George started backtracking saying he hadn’t really slept with Prince and that in reality, he just had his poster on his wall. But as far as the crowd were concerned the cat was already out of the bag.’
We don’t know about this one ILOSM family? Everybody knows that Prince has been about the ladies and has had PLENTY of them throughout his career, but the fact that Boy George said what he said and only tried to take back what he said only AFTER the producers spoke to him, makes it seem little suspect. Producers are considering a lot of other factors such as a huge lawsuit that could possibly be thrown at them by Prince’s people if Boy George wouldn’t have changed his statement.
So what do you think…Is Boy George telling the truth about sleeping with the ‘Purple One’? Or was he simply cracking a joke?
