Washington, Feb 02 (ANI): Fans of shamed pop star Boy George are making sure his time behind bars is comfortable by sending him money, according to reports.
The former Culture Club frontman was sentenced to serve 15 months in prison last month for chaining Norwegian Audun Carlsen to a hook in a bedroom at his East London apartment in April 2007.
George has received over 400 letters and cards from fans during his incarceration in North London’’s infamous Pentonville jail.
According to reports, caring fans are enclosing cash for him to spend on luxuries, which the star is putting in a prison bank account.
“It’’s unbelievable why so many people would want to spend their money on him, Contactmusic quoted a jail source, as telling British newspaper the Mirror.
“But he has been genuinely touched by people’’s concern for him,” the source added. (ANI)
