OH, BOY! EX-CULTURE CLUB SINGER CAUGHT WITH COKE

12

December

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.
