Boy George During Filming of ‘The Voice:’ ‘I slept with Prince’


The Culture Club singer sent production staff on the BBC show into a panic after claiming he’s bedded the legendary pop star in a bid to outdo fellow new judge Paloma Faith during a discussion about the artists they’ve worked with.

‘I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson,’ George began.

Attempting to outshine her colleague, Paloma said: ‘Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.’

‘Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince,’ the Karma Chameleon hitmaker then replied.

The shock confession during live auditions for the show is said to have sent the audience into a frenzy, forcing producers to bring filming to a standstill until they’d calmed down.

A source told The Sun: ‘We just couldn’t believe what he had come out with – and the guys in the gallery were beside themselves.

‘The crowd went absolutely wild because they thought they had just witnessed a massive celebrity exclusive. The other judges thought it was brilliant, particulaly will.i.am.

‘He kept coming up to Boy George and high-fiving him, which just set the crowd off again.’

However, when production staff then came on stage to speak to the judges, Boy George apparently started backtracking on his statement, insisting he hadn’t really slept with Prince.’

We’re suddenly a lot more excited for the new series of The Voice!
