Boy George’s flourishing career began seeing the down low when he started facing issues with cocaine abuse that eventually led him to abuse of other drugs as well. He, in fact, tried to perform on stage under the influence of drugs. His brother David, wanting to help Boy George out of the problem, helped address the issue on a channel. His career further soured when the Culture Club, a band in which Boy George was performing, was disbanded due to relationships between the band members that had gone bad and lawsuits were pointing at them over a looming case of death.
Two members of two different clubs he was working with were found dead due to a drug overuse. Boy George was implicated in both the cases which he later won. It put him in the negative light to be in such news. He has been arrested several times for illegal possession of various drugs.
