The new judges on The Voice were discussing who they sung with during their career when new judge Boy George, dropped the bomb!
George kicked off with: “I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson.”
Paloma upped the stakes, saying: “Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.”
But BG fired back: “Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.”
A source said: “We just couldn’t believe what he had come out with — and the guys in the gallery were beside themselves.”
Fellow judge Will.i.am thought the whole thing was hilarious, high-fiving Boy George.
But the 54-year-old, who replaced axed Tom Jones on the show, soon took it back.
The source told The Sun: “After that Boy George started backtracking saying he hadn’t really slept with Prince and that in reality, he just had his poster on his wall.
“But as far as the crowd were concerned the cat was already out of the bag.”
The fifth series of The Voice starts in January.
