Eighties pop star Boy George is a free man - the singer has left prison after completing just four months of a 15 month sentence.
The former Culture Club frontman, real name George O'Dowd, was jailed in January (09) for the false imprisonment and assault of male escort Audun Carlsen in 2007.
He was initially sent to Pentonville Prison in North London, and later transferred to Edmunds Hill Prison in Suffolk, where he remained until his release on Monday (11May09) morning.
O'Dowd, 47, was granted early release for good behaviour. He has been fitted with an ankle monitoring tag and must adhere to a curfew.
