NEW YORK, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Boy George reportedly had a male prostitute in his loft who tried to rob him the morning of his cocaine bust, the New York Post said Friday.

The newspaper says Boy George, aka George O'Dowd, called police to his New York loft to file a complaint about the hustler who reportedly demanded he turn over all the money in the house.

When police arrived, the prostitute was gone, but they saw a small amount of cocaine sitting near O'Dowd's computer. Police sources said a "friend" of the singer-turned-DJ blurted out there "was a lot more" coke in the bedroom.

The former Culture Club frontman has repeatedly insisted the 13 bags of coke found by police did not belong to him.

O'Dowd flew to London after his arrest under orders to return to New York for a Dec. 19 hearing on the drug charges.
