Boy George Assaulted Outside Of English Club, Left With Bruised Eye (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Boy George took to Twitter to show off quite a shiner. The Culture Club singer was reportedly assaulted outside of a North Yorkshire nightclub in England on Saturday night, walking away with a bruised eye.

"Looking pretty after getting assaulted on Saturday night!" Boy George (nee George O'Dowd) posted to Twitter along with a photo of his puffy eye -- although the tweet has since been removed.

O'Dowd was "poked" in the eye after a fan tried to run away with his hat, as he was exiting club Amadeus. In an attempt to retrieve his topper, the singer took a beating.

But the injury didn't only affect O'Dowd -- his wardrobe team had to do some quick thinking the following day to cover up evidence of the scuffle with an interesting costume diversion.

"The genius of Christine! One eye Joe! I have a gig so had to be clever! Quite Left Eye innit!" he tweeted along with a photo of a thrifty pair of patch-covered glasses.

Boy George is reportedly not pressing charges against his assailant.
