London: Singer George Michael is said to have had a harrowing first day at Pentonville prison, after sex offenders started chanting his songs as soon as they came to know he was being jailed there.
Michael, 47, was strip-searched, put in the sex offenders’ block and mocked by inmates screaming out twisted versions of his hits.
He was escorted to the shower block to the relentless chants of “Guilty George has got no Freedom”.
“As soon as he arrived some of the prisoners burst into a rendition of Freedom,” the Mirror quoted an inmate as saying.
“And when he was taken to shower they sang ‘Guilty George has got no freedom’ to the tune of Careless Whisper.
“He is sulking. He’s wearing prison-issue tracksuit bottoms and a T-shirt but doesn’t have any shoes on.
“When the cells were unlocked in the morning he just sat there and refused to come out.
“Everyone was peering out of their windows overlooking the exercise yard expecting to see him but he didn’t show,” the inmate added.
