In a bid to revivify a failing career, the used-to-be RnB sensation Boy George has reportedly turned to a strict diet of uncooked food. He hopes to 'shed weight he gained as he served his sentence in jail'.
The former Culture Club frontman, real name George O'Dowd, was also said to have resorted to a gruelling exercise routine to get back in shape.
"He's on a raw food regime and doing an hour's walking a day," Contactmusic quoted friend of the star as saying.
"He's also got some DJ shows lined up so hopefully things are back on track," the friend added.
The 'Karma Chameleon' singer was jailed in January for falsely imprisoning a male escort in his flat and beating the 29-year-old after a drug-fuelled nude photo shoot in 2007.
The 48-year-old was granted early release in May for his good behaviour, but was let off with a curfew and an ankle monitoring tag that was recently removed.
