Boy George’s newest troubles with drugs and the law started last Friday. From the AP story:

Boy George was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs and making a fake police report after calling 911 early Friday, police said.

The British singer, whose real name is George O’Dowd, claimed his home had been burglarized around 3 a.m. Friday, said Detective Kevin Czartoryski, a police spokesman.

Officers arrived at O’Dowd’s Manhattan apartment and discovered a small amount of cocaine next to a computer, police said. Police were continuing to investigate.

I’m surprised they didn’t find baby oil and Kleenex next to his computer. I bet they did, but didn’t mention it. The falling star has since fled to London, which doesn’t really lend much credence to his innocence plea. He’ll be home for Christmas, though, as he’s due back in court on December 19th.

In related news, Robbie Williams lept to Kate Moss’ defense at a press conference promoting his new record, Intensive Care. “I have done cocaine with these people and, the way they have so much power over people’s lives, it wouldn’t have surprised me if she had tried to commit suicide the week that everything hit the papers.”

Elton John has also weighed in, speaking from his own experience with drug abuse, which doctors are now actually diagnosing in overly-thin female patients.

UPDATE: Thirteen bags of cocaine found in George’s apartment, says NME.
