‘The Belle of St. Mark’ maestro Prince may want to think twice before sharing secrets with his contemporary Boy George.
For, the ‘King of Everything’ is spilling the beans on a relationship he claims they had behind the music industry’s velvet rope.
George is currently serving as a coach on the British version of The Voice and caused production on its latest episode to come to a screeching halt when he uttered word that shocked its studio audience.
I slept with Prince.
Here’s how it slipped out.
His fellow coach Paloma Faith remarked that she had collaborated with the ‘Purple Rain’ creative after watching George try to woo a contestant by naming all the artists he had worked with.
Then, just when the ‘New York’ singer thought she had beaten him in his game of celebrity name-dropping he rocked her world with:
Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince
Production on the show was stopped minutes later and George- keen to backtrack- then claimed that he was joking and merely had a poster of the entertainer on his wall.
Alas, this fell on deaf ears and news of his claims has found its way to the world via audience members who have relayed the story to the British press.
‘The Voice UK’ returns in January 2016.
