Pop star-turned-DJ Boy George has launched a scathing attack of fellow gay singer George Michael, for hiding his sexuality for years.

The former Wham! heart-throb only came out in 1998 after he was arrested for lewd behaviour with another man in a Beverly Hills, California public toilet.

The KARMA CHAMELEON singer has labelled Michael "a hypocrite", claiming his arrest stereotyped all gay men as "rampant".
