Throughout the 1980s, Boy George struggled with a heroin addiction, but addictions to other drugs would also follow. After getting clean and enjoying 16 years of sobriety, he relapsed in 2003 and eventually found himself in trouble with the law, including serving four months in prison. He now claims more than four years of sobriety.
