The British singer is in hot water over a suggestive claim

The always controversial Boy George is making headlines over a bold claim he made during live auditions of BBC1's "The Voice, which suggested he's slept with Prince.


Sources tell The Sun the audience went "absolutely wild" and producers were forced to stop filming to restore order on set. Here's how it all went down:


"Boy George made his comment about the legendary Purple Rain singer in an exchange with fellow judge Paloma Faith.


The stars, who joined Will.i.am and Kaiser Chiefs’ frontman Ricky Wilson on the judging panel this year, were boasting about who they had collaborated with.


The Karma Chameleon hitmaker started it, saying: 'I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson.'


Paloma replied: 'Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.'


To which George retorted: 'Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.'"


After being spoken to by the production crew, Boy George began to backtrack on his remarks, saying that he never slept with Prince but had his poster on the wall. Nice save?


Prince has yet to respond to Boy George's statements.
