When we first reported the Boy George coke bust over the weekend, some of the facts didn't seem to add up. For one, it seems likely that Mr. O'Dowd has been snorting bouncing powder for many years-- so he didn't seem the type to bump a little of it, lose his shit, and call the police in a fit of drug paranoia. He must have had a reason for calling the police-- and today Page Six revealed what that reason was: he being rolled by a male hustler he had hired for the night.
A source said that George called 911 after the hustler he'd ordered up demanded that he hand over all of the money in the house.
"George said no and that he was going to call the police," says our source. "The prostitute said, 'Go ahead and you'll go to jail.' So George freaked out because he was high, called the police, the prostitute left, and George got arrested."
We feel a little embarassed that explanation didn't occur to us-- the same story line has been used about fifteen times on Law & Order.
