Boy George has asked his fans to pray for his ‘beautiful mother’ after she was hospitalised and doctors said they ‘won’t resuscitate if things go wrong.’
While medical experts have yet to determine if 81-year-old Dinah O’Dowd’s medical issues are down to her heart or lungs, the singer, 58, does not think she has Covid: 19.
But he questioned the ‘do not resuscitate’ order saying how can doctors know that it definitely won’t work.

‘I loved my father don’t get me wrong, I really loved him, but he wasn’t a good dad and he wasn’t a good husband.’
In a previous interview with The Guardian, Boy George admitted he was the ‘deranged’ middle child who was very different to his siblings.
He said: ‘I’m the middle, needy, child. The middle child is always deranged. My brother Kevin, who was born the year after me, was born with tapeworm and nearly died.
‘For about two years I was kind of not that important. I don’t know whether that had a profound effect on me.
‘All I remember about being a child is being quite independent. I used to go off a lot and walk for miles and, from about 11, I remember discovering where David Bowie lived and I used to go and sit outside his house.
‘I wasn’t interested in the sort of things my brothers were interested in. They liked Farrah Fawcett-Majors and beautiful girls and I liked Bowie, jewellery and Busby Berkeley. Family to me is stability, it’s reliability.’
In June 2018, Mrs Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll revealed Boy George’s mother Dinah reduced him and the All Round to Mrs. Brown’s audience to tears when she shared the story of how her son told her he was gay.

The 62-year-old comedian admitted he was overcome with emotion when Dinah shared her account of his coming out story during her guest appearance on the programme.
Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Brendan said: ‘Boy George and his mother were on and they were so close, she was just adorable.
‘At one stage Mrs. Brown gets her on her own in the kitchen and gets her to tell her how Boy George came out.
‘She told the story and it was so beautiful and I was looking at the monitor and the camera is on George and he’s filling up, Jenny [Brendan’s wife] is filling up, the audience is filling up, it was just so beautiful.’
