Boy George Escort 'Wanted To Be Cuffed'

The male escort at the centre of singer Boy George's false imprisonment trial asked to be handcuffed during an earlier raunchy photo shoot, a London court has heard.
The former Culture Club frontman, whose real name is George O'Dowd, is alleged to have lured model Audun Carlsen to the bedroom of his home last year (07), where he reportedly handcuffed him to a hook on the wall and beat him with a metal chain.
But jurors at the trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court were shown earlier pictures O'Dowd had taken of Carlsen, who appears semi-naked with chains around his wrist and a choker on his neck.
O'Dowd's defence counsel Adrian Waterman QC told the court that the male escort was willing to be cuffed.
Cross-examining Carlsen, the QC said: "During this photoshoot you yourself took handcuffs and asked to put them on."
But Carlsen said the claim was "rubbish" and denied he would have allowed himself to be restrained.
The model told jurors he put the chains loosely around his arms only to make it appear as thought he was cuffed.
O'Dowd and Carlsen had fell out after the photoshoot when O'Dowd accused Carlsen of tampering with his computer.
But the two agreed to meet again at O'Dowd's house in Shoreditch, east London several months later - where the singer is accused of cuffing Carlsen to a wall.
O'Dowd denies one charge of false imprisonment.
The trial continues.
