THE BOY GEORGE SCANDAL
BOY George hired a male hustler who tried to rob him the morning the cross-dressing Culture Club singer was busted for cocaine possession, PAGE SIX has learned.
George called 911 last Friday morning to report that his Centre Street apartment had been burglarized — but he was arrested when cops found a mound of what appeared to be Bolivian marching powder piled near his computer.
A source said that George called 911 after the hustler he'd ordered up demanded that he hand over all of the money in the house.
"George said no and that he was going to call the police," says our source. "The prostitute said, 'Go ahead and you'll go to jail.' So George freaked out because he was high, called the police, the prostitute left, and George got arrested."
A police source said George did not mention the hustler when he was arrested. His lawyer, Lou Freeman, could not be reached for comment yesterday. But he told The Post last week that the cocaine was not George's, adding, "Tons of people come in and out of his home."
The only person in the apartment besides George when officers arrived was his friend Kyoko Nagami, a Japanese model and drag queen groupie. According to police sources, Nagami flipped on her friend, telling cops there was "a lot more" coke in the bedroom.
George, who a police source said "appeared high" when he was busted, was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and filing a false police report. He was released last Saturday after appearing in Manhattan Criminal Court, and was told to return for a Dec. 19 hearing. He has since flown back to London, where he has a home.

WHO'S HOUSE...RUN'S HOUSE
Reverend Run of Run DMC has put his $5 million mansion in Saddle River, N.J on the market, reports AP. Interested buyers can tour the home each week via his new MTV reality show, “Run’s House,” which captured several rooms in the hot property throughout filming. The crib has six bedrooms, an indoor basketball court, sound studio, tranquility room, an in-ground pool and a koi pond.
A blind item in the latest popbitch.com newsletter asks, "Which hugely cool US rap legend gets his road crew to pull out handsome young men from the audience at his show, and bring them backstage to hang out. If they fail to deliver, one of the road crew has to strip naked and crawl across the dressing room floor and administer oral attention to the sweaty star."
