A Norwegian escort has claimed that singer and DJ Boy George chained him to a wall against his will.

George has been arrested by police and bailed to appear before magistrates on charges of forced imprisonment and assault.

The Mirror reports that 28-year-old Auden Carlsen met the former Culture Club singer on website Gaydar.

He agreed to go to George’s flat in London’s Shoreditch at midnight for a £400 photo session.

He claims he was chained to a wall by George and another man and that he was in fear for his life.

He fled the apartment the next morning in his underwear after working his bonds loose and rang police from a local shop.

“I was convinced I was going to die. George handcuffed me to a hook by the bed as they held me down,” he told The Mirror.

The Metropolitan Police confirmed to the paper they are investigating Mr Carlsen’s claims.

Last year George completed five days of community service in New York after being convicted of false reporting of an incident.

He claimed he had been robbed, but when police arrived to investigate they found a large quantity of cocaine in his flat.
