Silly Boy George! Doesn't he know you're supposed to hide your illicit drugs before you invite the cops into your apartment? The former Culture Club singer, now a reknowned club DJ, recently got into trouble with the law again - remember that 1986 heroin bust? - for calling police to report a "robbery" at his Manhattan apartment.

The Boy, whose real name is George O' Dowd, 44, apparently called the police after a male prostitute tried to rob him. The boy let in the law, who then searched his luxury home and found cocaine on his computer table. A woman in the Boy's apartment told police where to find more cocaine on the premises. (Nice friend!)

"Those are not my drugs," Boy George told the police. (Hell, that's what I would say, too!) The singer faces 15 years in jail, if convicted, for drug possession and filing a false police report.

Of course, the worst part about all of this was the very unfortunate pictures that ran with the story, shots of our barely recognizable Boy - bald, pudgy, unshaven and slovenly. (We can't run the photos here -- no online rights -- but click here to see him arriving back in London shortly afterward.)

Talk about your Karma Chameleon.
