‘Good prisoner’ Boy George to be freed soon

London, May 10 (ANI): Boy George will soon be freed from prison after serving just four months of his 15-month sentence.

The fallen pop idol will reportedly have an ankle tag and curfew when he walks out of Edmunds Hill jail in Suffolk.

The former Culture Club star was said to have entered the good books of the staff with his hard work as a 15-pound-a-week pot washer.

But his fellow inmates alleged the 47-year-old was getting special treatment due to his celebrity status.

“George is getting out of here in the shortest possible time,” News of the World quoted one lag as saying.

“He’s been a good prisoner like a lot of us, but he does seem to have been treated with kid gloves and it’s caused jealousy,” the lag added.

The Prison Service said: “We don’t comment on the release date of individual prisoners.”

The singer was sentenced to prison in January for falsely imprisoning a male escort in his East London flat and beating the 29-year-old after a drug-fuelled nude photo shoot. (ANI)
