The rumours surrounding Boy George and Prince have been around seemingly since the dawn of time, but we never knew for sure. Thanks to talk show host Wendy Williams, who asked Boy George point blank about it, we know have some clarification.
Wendy said that she had “heard something: you said you slept with him.”
George was quick to clear the air, saying: “I was doing The Voice last year and we were competing to get these kids on our team and one of the other judges said, ‘Oh, I’ve sung with Prince.’ I said, as a joke, ‘Oh, I’ve slept with him.’ Of course that’s not true at all. And then I changed it and said, ‘I slept with a poster of him under me.'”
He continued, touching on the recent tragic passing of Prince: “I did meet Prince once I’m a massive Prince fan – I was very, very, very heartbroken. I met him once in Italy and he was suitably eccentric that’s all I can say. He was exactly what you’d expect him to be – he was Prince!”
