Boy George

Boy George has returned a painting of Jesus to the Church Of Cyprus after learning that it had been stolen from a church in southern Nicosia during the 1974 Turkish invasion of the country. The painting was spotted hanging over a fireplace in the singer’s home during a television interview.

George explained that he had bought the painting from an art dealer in 1985, telling the BBC: “I am quite sad to see it go, but I am glad it has gone back to its rightful place”.
