Boy George addressed rumors he had slept with Prince on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Wednesday.
The rumor started from the “Karma Chameleon” singer himself during filming of “The Voice U.K.” During the live episode fellow judge Paloma Faith said she had performed with Prince. “Forget that, darling. I’ve slept with Prince,” Boy George responded.
Queerty reports production stopped filming to have a private conversation with Boy George after he made the comment.
On “The Wendy Williams Show” the Culture Club front man says his quip was just for fun.
“I was doing ‘The Voice’ last year and we were competing to get these kids on our team and one of the other judges said, ‘Oh, I’ve sung with Prince.’ I said, as a joke, ‘Oh, I’ve slept with him,'” Boy George told Williams. “Of course that’s not true at all. And then I changed it and said, ‘I slept with a poster of him under me.'”
Boy George continued that he was a Prince fan and was “heartbroken” to hear of the late singer’s death.
“I met him once in Italy and he was suitably eccentric that’s all I can say. He was exactly what you’d expect him to be. He was Prince,” Boy George says.
