Boy George Assaulted


But did they really want to hurt him?

Former Culture Club leader and community service enthusiast Boy George (AKA George O'Dowd) was apparently roughed up recently by an overzealous fan outside of a nightclub in England.

A spokesman for the nightclub, where George was DJing, said, "George was leaving the club when, the club management have said, a drunken and aggressive woman lunged for his hat--and in doing so hit him in the eye."

The pop star took to Twitter to vent about the experience, which left him looking a bit worse for the wear.

"Looking pretty after getting assaulted on Saturday night," he wrote, posting a photo of himself with a black eye.

Luckily someone on George's team was available to doctor his glasses and hide most of the damage. "The genius of Christine! One eye Joe! I have a gig so had to be clever! Quite Left Eye innit," he wrote.


Despite whatever injuries he incurred, it's unlikely something so trivial will stop Boy George, who has overcome heroin addiction and stints in the clink, including one for false imprisonment, from doing what he does best: making music. In fact, he recently tweeted to Adam Lambert that he was "recording too and also writing with Culture Club."
