As Boy George was playing his set at the London Show, which was a charity event held in support of the Meningitis Trust at the British Capital’s Embassy Nightclub, a female audience member was reportedly chatting with her friends and not paying full attention to the singer.
Boy George was apparently infuriated by the behavior, and flew into a rage, throwing his drink at the lady and yelling, “Why don’t you shut the f**k up, you rude ****!” from the stage. She was said to have been in tears from his assault.
The British Sun reports that a source informed them, “He wasn’t playing his hits and people were losing interest. It was a shocking lapse of judgment because people had paid to support the trust.”
