In the middle of taping an episode of The Voice U.K., Boy George told a fellow judge that he’d slept with Prince, according to audience members present for the recording. It happened in the middle of a fun squabble with the British singer Paloma Faith, who reminded George that she’d collaborated with the purple-shrouded rock god, before the Culture Club singer reportedly responded:

Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.

According to audience members, after a brief filming break, Boy George attempted to backtrack, noting that he’d only ever had a poster of Prince on his wall. We’ll surely hear more of this on Prince’s shady new Instagram account.
