Until a third party witness steps forward, we’re forced to piece everything together from Brent and Michael’s own words, along with bread crumbs of what unfolded in public. Below, a picture of Brent Corrigan with ex-boyfriend Grant Roy on the left and current boyfriend Paul on the right.
3:00 PM: At the GayVN ceremony dress rehearsal, Michael Lucas objects to Brent Corrigan presenting GayVN awards. A few minutes later, on Twitter, Michael claims “I just had Brent Corrigan kicked out of the GayVN Awards tonight… that criminal brat has put too many in this industry at risk already.”
4:00 PM: At the dress rehearsal, Brent Corrigan acknowledges to us that he knows he’s unpopular with part of the industry. “Quite honestly, I don’t think people have really ever liked me very much to begin with because of the way I started underage. It’s not a fact that I’m proud of. I was seventeen. That’s a reason and not an excuse.”
6:58 PM: The sound system breaks down briefly at the GayVNs. Lucas on Twitter: “Mother of pearls! Now the sound system broke…they better get it working before I get up there. I have something to say…”
8:02 PM: The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection is honored by the City of San Francisco. Lucas then storms the stage and accuses GayVN of hypocrisy for honoring a former underage performer despite its stance against child pornography. Later, on Twitter, Michael asks “After protecting kids online award-I stormed the stage to ask how they claim they dont promote child porn when Brent Corrigan’s been awarded”
Later, in his press release detailing the nights events, Lucas recalled “During my call to action Corrigan’s boyfriend rushed to the stage and started yelling insanely at me to get off the microphone. As I was leaving the theatre, several people were warning me to watch my back, as some overheard Corrigan’s boyfriend making threats to my address.
Of course, following the awards, when the cameras disappeared the stories diverge more dramatically.
1:45 AM: Michael and Brent’s boyfriend Paul meet at the afterparty. A few minutes later, a visibly shaken Michael tells us Paul “hit me” and that he’ll be leaving the club.
1:50 AM: A few minutes later Michael details a second interaction:
Corrigan’s boyfriend came up to me and bumped his chest against mine … He then threatened that he was going to kill me and demand that we leave the club together immediately so that he could break my neck. 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.
He forced his body into Paul (my boyfriend of almost one year) and stepped on his toes and shoes. Michael immediately was hostile and a shouting match began. Paul requested the aid of two security officials of the venue. A warning was issued to Michael Lucas. The club was loud, there were many people around but words could not easily be heard over the noise unless you were within inches of the incident like I was. Despite this and what lies have been told, no threats of bodily harm or death were made ever to Michael Lucas. Names were called and threats of social ruin and disdain were made.
2:30 AM: Michael returns to the hotel, phones the cops. The cops arrive at Brent’s hotel room but the no one is there.
6:00 AM: In an unrelated note, Lucas Creative Director mr. Pam texts us. “omg. just had hot sex w the hot cab driver. just got home. lol.” At least someone was having fun!
7:00 AM: Michael calls the cops again. The cops go to Brent’s hotel room and find him and his boyfriend in bed. According to Lucas:
They talked to Corrigan and his boyfriend for about twenty minutes, and then handcuffed the boyfriend and took him into custody. … They asked me if I would be willing to fly to California in the case of a trial, and I said absolutely, as I don’t take threats to my life very cavalier.
As Brent recalls:
Paul and I woke the following morning at 8 AM with several police officers at our bedside. Paul was cuffed and taken out into the hallway so he could be questioned separately from me. … There was no resist or hostility from either parties; the cuffs were used as a precaution.
We’re waiting to see the actual police report. In the meantime, our grandmother used to tell us to “believe half of what you see and none of what you hear” and at this point we’re content to let Michael and Brent work out whatever they need to work out through the legal system and in the privacy of their own blogs.

It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
