Autograph costs Boy George PS36,000November 18th, 2007 - 11:37 am ICT by admin
London, Nov 18(ANI): Rock singer Boy George has cost himself a whopping 36000 pounds by signing an autograph.
The 46 year old gay entertainer was on the decks, when a lurking solicitor disguised as one of the fans sidled up to the DJ stand, handed the pop star a piece of paper.
Thinking it was an autograph-hunting fan, George obliged it with a quick signature - which will now cost him 36,000 pounds - the cash he owes after being sued by a club promoter.
The document was a Statutory Declaration. In legal terms, once it is delivered or “served”, the receiver must pay his debts or be declared bankrupt.
A High Court judge in Manchester had ordered George to pay the cash to Cheshire promoter Kasia Saleh for pulling out of a concert.
He was a guest DJ at Essential in Manchester’s gay village on Nov 10, when he was hit with the writ from Ms Saleh’s Manchester-based solicitors, Levy’s.
A spokesman said, “He was gobsmacked. As soon as we said, ‘You have been served with a statutory declaration’ he went, ‘Oh! He could not understand it. He was gobsmacked.” (ANI)
