Boy George's unprotected sex claims
Boy George performed "unprotected oral sex" on a male escort, despite knowing he was HIV positive, it has been claimed
Boy George allegedly performed "unprotected oral sex" on a male escort, despite knowing he was HIV positive.
The singer - who is in court on charges of false imprisonment after handcuffing escort Auden Carlsen and beating him with a chain during a drug-fuelled naked photo shoot at his London apartment - was reportedly told Auden had been diagnosed with the killer virus but still performed fellatio on him.
Defending barrister Adrian Waterman asked Auden in London's Snaresbrook Crown Court yesterday (25.11.08): "You had told George that you were HIV positive and you still say he performed oral sex on you?"
Auden replied: "Very briefly. After five seconds I said 'No'."
Auden, 29, had also claimed George became angry after he refused to have sex with him because he didn't find him attractive.
He said: "When he wanted sex, I said, 'That's not what I am here for'. He's not a person I would find attractive to have sex with.
"He was quite upset that I did not want to have sex with him. I think that was the trigger - why he was so upset."
George - real name George O'Dowd - and Auden originally met through gay website Gaydar, when the star booked the bisexual as a model in January last year.
Auden travelled to 47-year-old George's home, where it is claimed George performed the sex act on him during a raunchy photo shoot. The men are also said to have snorted cocaine.
George then accused Auden of tampering with his computer, a claim which he denies.
Auden eventually left the property after the 12-hour session and was paid £300.
Afterwards, George reportedly inundated Auden with emails, many of which Auden claims were "bizarre".
In them, the singer ranted about repeated attempts to hack into his computer and said a "fixated lesbian" was operating his system remotely from America.
George eventually apologised to Auden for the emails and said he wanted to "spank" him, so the pair agreed to meet up again in April 2007.
Auden alleges the two men again took cocaine and staged a nude photo shoot at George's home, before the singer and his friend shackled and attacked him.
The court was shown pictures of Auden's injuries, including red welts on his head and marks on his arm.
George has admitted handcuffing Auden but denies false imprisonment.
The trial continues.
