News Update: Lucas Speaks Out About Attack


Michael Lucas has released a statement on his blog following last night’s incident at the GAYVN Awards in San Francisco. The president and CEO of Lucas Entertainment claims that he was attacked by the boyfriend of porn star Brent Corrigan, who once worked as an underage performer. “There is nothing new about my campaign against the honoring of Brent Corrigan,” Lucas writes. “I took to the stage to speak out against nominating him. Let me make it clear right away that I have no personal vendetta against Brent. My purpose is to protect this industry from juveniles and set the standard rule for not accepting the risk they put us all in.”

Lucas goes on to say that following his impromptu speech at the awards show, Corrigan’s boyfriend, whom he describes as a Latino in his thirties, rushed the stage and yelled at him. Then, at an afterparty, he approached Lucas and bumped his chest into Lucas’s. “He then threatened that he was going to kill me and demanded that we leave the club together immediately so that he could break my neck,” Lucas writes. “The club’s security swiftly came and separated him; he came back and told me that he will splash acid into my face, ‘which will be the end of your career.’ I called the police immediately when I reached the hotel and recalled to them what happened. The cops went to Corrigan’s room, but the couple was still out partying elsewhere.”

When Corrigan and his date returned to their room in the early morning, Lucas again called the police, who returned and questioned the couple. Corrigan’s boyfriend was then handcuffed and taken into custody. Lucas says he was concerned about his safety, especially considering that Corrigan has been involved with violent boyfriends in the past, which lead to his involvement in the recent Bryan Kocis murder trial. “There’s a certain pattern here,” Lucas writes. “I don’t take threats to my life very cavalier.”

I'm sorry. I've been holding off on saying this long enough. But I feel maybe, just MAYBE if Michael Lucas didn't insist on unjustifiably acting like a spoiled brat, he could take a threat to his life very cavalier.

Brent Corrigan WAS an underage performer. NOW, Brent is of legal age. Michael Lucas needs to stop his "stereotypical old gay man envying the young" routine, and focus on making a quality product. That way, he would have no need or concern to worry about Brent Corrigan underage PAST that is done and over with, therefore should not be held against Brent.

Amen, Tre.

If Michael doesn't change his ways and make headlines for something good, he's gonna end up old and alone pining his lost beauty in a musty room with too many cats.

Yes Brent was underage - five years ago. Why is this an issue now. I like Lucas' vids but he's so abrasive, especially in his Auditions vids where he does all the talking instead of the model. Won't order any more of those. Now he's getting into all the fetish stuff which turns me off. He's always criticizing others for some reason.
