Moody pop star Marilyn, who has again fallen out with Boy George, yesterday poured his heart out to singer Kim Wilde.
She consoled him when the two relaxed at a television pop party. The cause of Marilyn's heartache? George's new gender bender mate Gemma.
The pretty pair are reported to be "very close". But Marilyn, dressed in a white jump siut, bitched "George's dogs have some strange friends." Then her broodily talked of Gemma's dress, ripped when he was set upon by thugs.
"If I'd bought a dress like that, I'd want to get it torn", said Marilyn. "I buy much better dressed."
Drag model Gemma - real name Paul Dawson was first seen with the Culture Club singer at one of Frank Sinatra's concerts last month.
Gemma said: "I fell for George in a big, big way as soon as I saw him and I've adored him ever since."
George's friendship with Marilyn goes back years - but has been a stormy relationship. Now Marilyn is simply wild about Miss Wilde. Strictly as an understanding friend, of course.
