Boy George showed off a black eye caused during an altercation at a night club on Saturday evening.
The former Culture Club frontman – now a successful DJ – was injured as he left the Amadeus nightclub in Northallerton, North Yorkshire on Saturday evening.
Boy George, 50, real name George O’Dowd, was leaving the venue when there was an altercation with a female club-goer.
A spokesman for Boy George claimed: “George was leaving the club when, the club management have said, a drunken and aggressive woman lunged for his hat – and in doing so hit him in the eye.”
The spokesman claimed that as a result of her actions, the woman was asked to leave the club.
Boy George posted the photograph on micro-blogging site Twitter, adding: “Looking pretty after being assaulted on Saturday night! Nice!”
The star added: “Poor Christine having to make up only one eye after an incident in a club….I have one big bruised eye! Sweet.”
Boy George, though, is not pressing charges against the woman.
The singer first rose to fame as the cross-dressing frontman of Culture Club.
They were one of the most successful stars of the1980s with chart-topping singles including Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? and Karma Chameleon, which was the biggest selling UK single of 1983.
However, the band fractured as Boy George’s infamous heroin addiction worsened. In 1986, he was even arrested for heroin possession.
Boy George subsequently rebuilt his career as a DJ but has intermittently come to the attention of police.
The singer was sentenced to five days community service in New York for falsely reporting a burglary in 2006.
In 2009, Boy George then served four months in prison in the UK after he was convicted of false imprisonment.
A reunion album with Culture Club has also been mooted for later this year.
