Boy George Returns Stolen Art

Originally posted 01/21/2011 01:00PM

This time, Boy George is on the right side of the law.

The Culture Club singer returned an icon to a Cyprus church this week, after learning the work had been stolen nearly 40 years ago. Boy George (real name, George O'Dowd) purchased the piece from a London art dealer in 1985.

As it turns out, the work – an elaborate depiction of Jesus Christ – was one of several pieces taken from the Church of St. Charalambos when Turkey invaded the island nation of Cyprus in 1974. The church's bishop just happened to be watching a recent interview taped in Boy George's home when he spotted the piece, and realized it belonged to his house of worship.

Boy George's troubles with the law took a serious turn in a London courtroom Friday when a judge sentenced the '80s pop idol to 15 months in jail for falsely imprisoning a male escort at his home in 2007.

Judge David Radford told the former Culture Club singer (whose real name is George O'Dowd) he was guilty of "gratuitous violence" for handcuffing and beating with a chain a 29-year-old Norwegian man he had met online and invited to his London apartment for a nude photo shoot, Britain's Press Association reports.

The incident occurred after the Norwegian, Audun Carlsen, attempted to escape.

Boy George Found Guilty of Imprisoning Male Escort

Boy George has been convicted of falsely imprisoning a male escort.

The jury in a London court sided with Audun Carlsen, 29, who claimed that the former Culture Club frontman (real name George O'Dowd), 46, had handcuffed him and beat him with a metal chain.

(The musician – best known for such '80s hits as "Karma Chameleon" and "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me" – admitted to cuffing the escort, but said it was because he suspected the man of tampering with his computer.)

According to the U.K.'s Press Association, the singer looked grim as the verdict was delivered. The singer was released on bail until his Jan. 16 sentencing.
