Jarec Wentworth pulls a boner; Jussie Smollett shows one!
The big story I’ve been researching for a few weeks is about a gay porn star who was blackmailing a former client. The porn boy in question is Teofil Brank, who films as Jarec Wentworth, pictured. Allegedly, Brank was threatening to disclose damaging information about his wealthy client. On Feb. 16 and 17, the client wired him $500K and gave him his Audi R8 (worth $180K). But that wasn’t enough for Brank. Oh no, he got greedy. On March 3, he sent more demands via text message. “I want a condo here in LA. Bachelor pad. You have a taste I like. 2 bed Max. Prefer one [He’s not that greedy]. I want 300,000 cash.” Then he dropped the condo idea. He’d settle for $1 million in cash and the car’s title.
At that point, the victim went to the FBI, accompanied by an attorney. A sting was setup where Brank was going to meet the guy at The Grove in L.A. to pick up the cash and the title. Then the place was changed to a Starbucks in El Segundo (much more discrete). That’s when FBI agents arrested him. The feds noticed someone watching from a Ford hatchback. That was Etienne Yim, a friend from whom Brank bummed a ride (because, apparently, he didn’t want to bring the Audi to El Segundo). Brank also asked Yim to bring along a gun: a loaded .357 Magnum with six extra rounds of ammunition. Once the FBI found that, Yim sang like a canary. He told them where the Audi was parked, where Brank had deposited the money and about their plan to fly to Europe. Brank has been denied bail and is considered a flight risk, even though all his money and accounts have been seized. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison. On the positive side, he might find his soul mate … or at the very least, his cellmate.
In an interesting twist, Brank’s lawyer pointed out that the “victim” may have had sexual encounters with underage individuals, which would be a criminal act. In one of his text messages, Brank refers to procuring boys for the client. Given these circumstances, the judge ruled that the man could be identified publicly. Alas, he’s not a famous actor or a billionaire with name recognition. He’s Donald Burns, co-founder and chairman of MagicJack. Although Don appears to have a significant other, he’s also been seen squiring Sean Cody model Ashton aka MacKinzie Amadon. The twosome have been photographed at some pretty high profile (and private) events.
Former Dallas Cowboys recruit and native Texan Michael Sam has been pulling double duty lately — appearing on Dancing with the Stars and training for the NFL’s Veteran Combine. Alas,this week he was voted off DWTS and didn’t get any offers out of the combine, but all is not lost. The Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League think they have a shot at signing him. Because when I think of great football teams, I think of the Gentille Alouettes.
Elton John’s mother recently celebrated her 90th birthday … complete with an Elton John impersonator! Where was her famous son? Turns out, they aren’t on speaking terms. “Yes, it’s seven years now in June. But you know, I’ve got used to it. And it was all so stupid — so petty,” she says. According to Mom, it started when Elton asked her to cut off contact with two longtime friends who he no longer speaks to. “I told him, ‘I’m not about to do that and drop them. Bob is like a son to me. He has always been marvelous to me and he lives nearby and keeps an eye on me.’ Then to my utter amazement, he told me he hated me. And he then banged the phone down. Imagine! To me, his mother!” Ah, but there’s more to the story: “He told me that I thought more of Bob Halley than I did of my own son. And to that I said to him, ‘And you think more of that fucking thing you married than your own mother!’“ And therein lies the real issue: She seems to have a very low opinion of David Furnish. “Everyone who used to be invited to the parties doesn’t get invited anymore … and we know who is behind that.” Sigh — a story as old as time.
Speaking of parties, everyone always asks me where the next big party is. That would be Jeffrey Sanker’s White Party April 24-27 in Palm Springs, the party where I inaugurated interviewing the fit and fabulous on the white carpet. Check out JeffreySanker.com for more details. Although I won’t be in Palm Springs, I will make it to Orlando June 2–8 for Gay Days and the 25th anniversary of One Magical Weekend. (You can find info at GayDays.com and at OneMagicalWeekend.com.) Next on my dance card is July 4th in Provincetown.
Fasten your seatbelts, it’s time for another installment of Fayewatch. In news I can hardly believe, it’s been announced that Faye Dunaway is writing a book about her experiences making Mommie Dearest! Yes, she’s now going to cash in on the movie that she claims ruined her career and is the bane of her existence. I was sure this had to be an April Fool’s joke, because you know what a scamp Faye is. But this appears to be legit: She’s signed a deal with Dey Street Books. I’ll believe it when I see it.
Our “Ask Billy” question comes from Randall in Dallas: I discovered Empire because of you. I read online that there are nude photos of Jussie Smollett. True? He’s so hot.
There are indeed. Back in 2010, Jussie was making the transition from child star and nude photos somehow surfaced. At the time, nobody paid much attention to them, although they were certainly memorable. You see, Jussie is … how shall we say it … hung like a tyrannosaurus rex. And his ass ain’t so bad, either. You can check out every inch — and we’re talking double digits here — at BillyMasters.com.
When Jussie could have a hit singing about his own “Anaconda,” it’s definitely time to end yet another column. Unlike that infamous pizzeria, I am happy to serve anyone — like that porn star/hooker, I can be bought. If you’d like to find out how much it would cost, email me, and I promise to get back to you before MagicJack merges with FleshJack!
Until next time, remember: One man’s filth is another man’s bible.
