Boy George denies chaining male escort to wall

Boy GeorgeFlamboyant 80s singer Boy George has denied chaining a male escort to a wall at his luxury London home, a court heard yesterday.

The 'Karma Chameleon' star, 46, appeared at an east London court, and pleaded not guilty when he was accused of assaulting and imprisoning a male escort on April 28 last year.

It is claimed the singer -- real name George O'Dowd -- chained escort Audun Carlsen to the wall of his east London home.

The singer, who shot to fame in the 1980s with pop band Culture Club, stood outside the court and smoked a cigarette before entering the building.

Dressed in black and wearing dark glasses, he spoke only to confirm his name, state his not guilty plea and say he understood the terms of his bail during the 20 minute hearing.

The singer spent time talking with his legal team before leaving the court building, thanking fans who turned up to offer support.

He said only "no comment" to waiting press before leaving in a black Volkswagen people carrier.
