Boy George fronted the band Culture Club
The singer and DJ, whose real name is George O'Dowd, is also accused of assaulting Audun Carlsen during the alleged incident on 28 April last year.
Prosecutors claim the 46-year-old former Culture Club frontman chained Mr Carlsen up at his home in Ravey Street, Hackney, east London.
He was released on bail until a trial at Snaresbrook Crown Court in November.
